Booklist A well-drawn world, full of deceit and mythology, populated by entirely believable characters. RT Book Reviews This is one book series you want to get hooked on. Shadow and Bone Trilogy. The Grisha Trilogy Boxed Set: Plain girl learns she’s the chosen one.
She goes into a magic school, has classes, deals with snobs. Becomes powerful and beautiful, but spends most of her time anguished over a love triangle. This is a rehash of many other bibliografla, nothing new here. It feels like half the book is about how people look, and only the beautiful people matter.
Such a sad and stupid stereotype. Set, and written, before the Six of Crows duology. The land of Ravka has been decimated by the Shadow Fold; a mysterious consequence of dark magic which blights the landscape in monsters and darkness. The people of this tormented land have not known peace for generations. While attempting to cross the fold, Army cartographer Alina Starkov finds her transport attacked by maatura monsters that dwell within.
Faced with near-certain death, Alina calls upon a hidden power, and manages to push back the vibliografia. Suddenly thrust bkbliografia the aristocratic world of the Grisha and Ravka court politics, Alina must master her gift, while at the same time learning to navigate the treacherous waters of court life.
This is YA done right. Books like this keep me coming back to the genre when I feel bbliografia reading one more angsty book will drive me mad. The plot this is the first installment in a trilogy is well executed.
The characters are still in their nascent phase, but show great bibligrafia. The requisite love triangle feels a bit more realistic than most entries in the YA genre. I especially enjoyed the bibliohrafia magic is handled, and the care the author shows in her world building.
Bardugo has put together a grand vision, and she has the skill to translate that vision into a gorgeous work of fantasy. Fans of the bibligorafia adult genre, young adult fantasy, and fantasy in general will enjoy this series. Bardugo really has a talent with storytelling mixed in with magic and humor.
I love the universe she created with its Russian words, background, culture. The harshness of being an orphan, the luxuries of the Court all really come together in a rich fantasy oil painting. Not too much detail, not too much magic theory, not too much dread and despair.
It was an easy read. That aside, I couldn’t really like the characters. I thought I liked the diamond-in-the-rough heroine but she never really pulled through to get her act together until the very end of this novel.
She was constantly being pushed, shoved, led by others. She was easily deceived, and deceived even herself. You would think that after all this time she would figure out who she was and what she wanted. She is no longer a child but she is constantly looking to others to give her the answers.
The character development was really a mixed bag of “aha! No real warning, just suddenly the heroine discovers why she’s so brilliant no pun intendedthe hero suddenly decides he loves her, and the villain whom I was really cheering for went from a multi-dimensional puzzle box to a textbook villain with no soul.
The ending wrapped up so quickly it literally took half a chapter and one afterward to wrap it up. One moment it was all confrontation tension, the next, a miraculous resolution because the heroine just figured it all out.
The problem with the big reveal is that she never really cared about anything. She lived her entire life just numb; without hope or joy, just pining after a childhood friend. She obsessed about her childhood friend as if her universe revolved around him, and despite everything that happens to her and everything she’s discovered about herself she still clings to him in the end even though we were supposed to believe she completely broke free of that mold many chapters ago.
So she makes a choice, willing to sacrifice all else, including the friends she didn’t think she could make and innocent people, to get her HEA.
Bbibliografia makes her so different from the enemy, then? In the next book I’m supposed to believe she wants to fight a madman and save the country she never really care for or fit in anywhere and its people she never really had any connection to?
Yeah, I’m thinking I’ll just let her do that without me. Have fun with that. The novel was rather short, as well. I think all three could really be reduced to two books, but for the greed of the publisher, we’re forced to pay a tall price three times.
