Shadow and Bone was sooooooo GOOD! I’m actually getting ready to start book 2, Siege and Storm! I loved the idea of the Grisha and the way their magic works. I also really loved the main character Alina and her childhood friend Mal. The storyline is also set in Russia, which I thought was pretty cool as well, as I haven’t read anything set in Russia. There is a great back story to Alina and Mal, as well as the Darkling, and there is also an awesome plot line to what the Grisha are and how Alina finds herself in their world.
I was slightly hesitant to start the book at first, as there were a lot of mixed reviews, but I’m glad that I just jumped in and did it. It was one of those books that was just a page turner that kept me on the edge of my seat and kept me reading late into the night. I read it in just a few short sittings, and couldn’t wait to find out what was next for Alina and Mal. I actually went out the next day and bought book 2, that I’m start tonight! Who’s read this book, or the series itself? What were your thoughts?
