Shadow and BoneBy Delta High School LibraryShadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo is the start of the Grisha Trilogy about two orphans, Alina and Mal. Alina and Mal are being interviewed by Grisha as children, then the story jumps ahead to their young adulthood. Mal is a tracker in the army and Alina is an assistant to a cartographer. The army is crossing The Fold, a place where monsters called Volcra live. Volcra attack and Mal and Alina protect each other. As the Volcra claw at her back, Alina lights up. She's suspected of


being a Sun Summoner and people will want her to light up The Fold so traveling can be safer and ports can be used once again. The Darkling takes Alina to Os Alta for her safety, her training and to serve the kingdom. Alina feels like she doesn't fit into this life any better than her last dwelling and job as a mapmaker. She hasn't seen Mal since she was taken to the palace. Alina has a revelation as a forgotten memory resurfaces. Alina's power comes forth and as her power grows, it becomes easier for her to call upon and she learns who she can and cannot trust and who she truly loves. I like how the author has woven Russia into the story. Leigh Bardugo is an impressive author and her debut novel, Shadow and Bone, brought anxiety to my mind and tears to my eyes - 5 stars!0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Great book!By Kindle CustomerI chose 4 stars because the book was great but their was small things that didn't get explained which hopefully is ment for book 2. I didn't expect a love story out if it but was happily surprised how the author worked it into the book. A lot of words are in another language that the author explains. I got confused with a few of the back character names but worked thru it quick. This book overall was great, just bought book 2. I found it like the movies and tv shows 'The Avatar' where my minds eye imagined some of the fight and school scenes. So if you like the show / movie The Avatar this book might be for you just that instead of Asian-like background this story takes place around the Middle East.1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. An interesting story with interesting people in an interesting worldBy PWDeckerMy video review, where I cook some "Shadow and Bone" inspired recipes can be found here on my youtube channel, pwdecker.I really liked "Shadow and Bone" by Leigh Bardugo. Ravka is a very interesting world with a unique, but Russian influenced, feel. It is inhabited by Grisha, who each have special abilities. Some control the elements. Others can heal people or stop their hearts. Their leader is The Darkling.Bardugo did a good job of making the characters feel real. There were many grey characters and characters with unknown agendas. The minor characters were well rounded.The artwork both on the cover and within the book is beautiful. I really like the map. It sets the mood for the novel. The Unsea's volcra illustrations are creepy, but they give a good image to the reader.I am looking forward to the next book in The Grisha Trilogy, Seige and Storm. I want to see more of The Apparat, David, and Baghra.I give this novel a 5/5. If you like Young Adult Fantasy, this is a must read!
