In Bee’s Favorite Reads I’ll be sharing, you guessed it, my favorite reads. This is a feature that always goes up on a Sunday if there’s no Sunday Shorts, which is almost every week. This week I decided to feature Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo in honor of the release of Ruin & Rising in a few days!

Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha . . . and the secrets of her heart.

Shadow and Bone is the first installment in Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy.

4.5 Stars

I love this book. I just re-read Siege & Storm and I loved that one more than I did the first time around. I think I just wasn’t really in the mood for it back then because it’s awesome. And it all starts with Shadow & Bone. If you love Fantasy, you have to read this book!

  1. So glad to be meeting yet another S&B lover! This is seriously one of my favorite books of all time. I haven’t re-read it yet, though, but I am planning to once my copy of Ruin & Rising arrives. I actually preferred Shadow & Bone over Siege & Storm, but maybe I have to read again to appreciate it more, like what happened to you. 😉 SO EXCITEDDD.

    Thanks for sharing! (And for stopping by my blog. 🙂 )
