Shadow and Bone – Book Review

shadow-and-boneI first came across Leigh Bardugo when I came across her book Six of Crows. It’s a young adult fantasy book which, until then, I wasn’t a huge fan of. But that changed when I finished Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom thereafter. I had no plans of reading her earlier books because I already loved Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom so I saw no need to read them. But there was a lot of hype when her new book that’s based in the Grishaverse came out, so I decided to give her first three books a try since it’s in the same world.

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo is also a young adult fantasy book about Alina Starkov as she finds out she’s a very powerful Grisha, who are people that posses and practice magic in the Second Army of the King. I thought that the book was well written and flowed well allowing for a quick read. There were moments that took me by surprise and moments that I was able to guess but not all of it (fine it was only one thing I guessed right). I loved the characterization and the fact that they were morally gray. I just love Bardugo’s ability to create such intriguing characters and lets them make mistakes, lets them be human.

My rating: 4/5 stars

If you’ve read Shadow and Bone, what did you think of it?
