Additional Notes

From The Publisher*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.
Review Quote*A New York Times Bestseller " Danger and duplicity abound… in this lavish portrayal of a country reminiscent of Imperial Russia."- VOYA "Set in a fascinating, unique world rich with detail, Shadow and Bone was unlike anything I've ever read."   - Veronica Roth, New York Times bestselling author of Divergent "Fast-paced and unpredictable, this debut novel will be a hit with readers who love dark fantasy."- School Library Journal, starred review "Mesmerizing… Bardugo's set up is shiver-inducing, of the delicious variety. This is what fantasy is for."- The New York Times Book Review "A rich fantasy landscape, an inspired magical structure, and a gratifying emotional hook keep the pages whirring by until a final twist upends assumptions and lands us smack in the middle of a harrowing climax. " - The Horn Book
