Is the worldbuilding in this book good? Who fucking knows. This is not my division. You know those books with the ten camps? The twelve districts? The seven pies that my grandma used to make? You know what I mean. I hope it goes there. I hope everything is morally ambiguous as hell. Alina goes to school. She trains!
The beginning of the book - you know, the thing that we know happens from the blurb? It is overall a mess. Until the end. Okay, I have more written in this review about how freaking badass the ending is, but a lot of shit goes down and a lot of reveals get dropped and I did not expect any of them. I hate saying this about Leigh fucking Bardugo, queen of subverting everything, but the beginning of this book… was so tropey. Our main character. Not very pretty.
The Grisha Trilogy #1: Shadow and Bone
In love with her best friend. Every girl in sight is attracted to him. And then she meets the Darkling. He broods! She was always beautiful underneath. Something something best friend vs. Something something court politics. Like, come on. Because Alina fucking Starkov had the greatest antihero moment at the end of this book after being sort of boring for half the book.
I hope she spends two books fucking shit up and murdering people and she and the Darkling become mortal enemies. I am a very normal person. Because the Darkling… is not… sexy. He says one paragraph of shitty things to Alina and then apologizes to her and recognizes that he was wrong?
We have to know this. Please tell me we know this. I like antiheroes. I do not like pages of nothing happening. I wish this book were better. I am still glad I read it. This review was a mess. I thank you for your time.

Also, there's a giveaway of a finished copy of Shadow and Bone! If I could wrap up my emotions about how I felt after reading Shadow and Bone and send them to you through my computer screen, I totally would.
I wish I could unread it just so I can go back and re-read it again for the first time. Yes, I loved it that much. Now I've come to the part where I am supposed to describe to you the awesomeness that is Shadow and Bone and I'm finding that rather difficult to do.

Why is that? Is it because while reading a book you love your get so swept away with the story that you can't be bothered to take notes? Or perhaps it's the fact that you don't want to give away too much of the story? You want other potential readers to go into the book blind, expecting little and gaining everything the story has to offer?
I suspect it is a little of both for me and with that, I offer my sincerest apologies if you do not find this review helpful. It is my hope, however, that my inability to do this book justice in my review speaks volumes in and of itself. Shadow and Bone follows the story of Alina Starkov, a remarkable young girl, who holds a power not even she realizes she has.
All her life she's never fit in. Not in the orphanage where she grew up alongside her best friend, Mal, nor in the First Army where she serves as a mapmaker.
In her world people of elite status with unique abilities, called Grisha, serve as nothing more than fanciful servants to the kingdom of Ravka. One day, while protecting Mal, it is revealed that she too is Grisha with a very rare and sought after power: the ability to summon sunlight. She soon finds herself in a very different world filled with adventure, betrayal, and a sinister plot that could destroy all of Ravka.
The book begins quickly immersing the reader into the kingdom of Ravka head on. Terms are thrown at the reader at a reasonable pace for a fantasy novel and for once I didn't immediately feel overwhelmed or the need to "play ketchup" with the characters.

I can tell Bardugo employed the rule of "show, don't tell" and I believe she did it well. I found myself hanging on the edge of my seat waiting for more of the world to be revealed to me. There was never a dull moment reading Shadow and Bone ; no downtime for me to catch my breath. And I loved every minute of it! I thought the plot was very well done and I got so caught up in the story that the plot twists just blew me away.
I was so engrossed that by the time the climax hit I felt an intake of breath and couldn't tear myself away from the book for the duration of the read!
