Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy

I’m currently reading Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy and I’m hooked. The protagonist is a young orphan, Alina Starkov, who in a moment of crisis uses a power she was unaware she possessed to save herself and her best friend. Alina’s rare power could be the key to save her country Ravka from its enemies. So, she is forced to leave all that she’s ever known to join the Grisha, a magical community led by the handsome but mysterious Darkling. The problem is: just who is the enemy?


Bardugo’s writing is crisp and fast-paced. And her setting her fantasy in a country reminiscent of old Russia is another plus for me. So far I’ve read Shadow and Bone and Siege and Storm. I can hardly wait to dip into the last book of the set: Ruin and Rising.
