Read full description of the books:
Aside from being the first book my boyfriend ever bought me, I’m pretty sure that Shadow and Bone was one of the few books I’ve ever chosen just because of the cover. Let’s be real though - the cover art on every single book in The Grisha Trilogy is phenomenal. Not only is it gorgeous but it ties in with the words underneath the cover. I can definitely say that the covers are what drew me into this beautiful world that Leigh Bardugo created. It was her characters, her words, her stories that kept me there. I didn’t expect to love this trilogy as much as I do.
Not only is the nation of Ravka torn by war, it is also quite literally split in two by the Shadow Fold. Created by the Black Heretic hundreds of years ago, the Fold is a black nothingness that spreads between Kribirsk and Novokribirsk. It is infested with creatures called Volcra and has become known as the Unsea. Alina Starkov, an orphan and a soldier in the First Army, sets out to cross the Fold with other soldiers (including her best friend, Mal). Of course, this is where everything goes wrong - and continues to go wrong until the very end. It turns out Alina is Grisha (or a person who can summon, control and manipulate an element) and the only Sun Summoner in existence. The Grisha Trilogy follows Alina’s journey to save Ravka, destroy the Fold and defeat the Darkling.
While there are many themes in The Grisha Trilogy, the biggest is the struggle for power. You see it between the three nations - Ravka, Shu Han and Fjerda. You even see it between Alina and the Darkling, Nikolai and his brother and father (the royal family), the Grisha and everyone else. But there’s also Alina’s struggle with herself and her identity. Before she became Grisha and the Sun Summoner, she was an orphan who didn’t fit in anywhere, who was in love with her best friend and wanted something that was just hers and hers alone. Over the course of the story, Alina becomes a person almost completely unrecognizable from who she was when we first met her. She becomes less naive and feeble, becomes much more brutal and strong and Martyr-like than even the Darkling or the Apparat could have expected.
With a heroine who is stubborn and constantly on the verge of heading down a dark path, a villain who sometimes seems too human to deal with, and supporting characters that you never want to see hurt again, the characters are definitely the strongest part about this series. Especially the Darkling. He is absolutely monstrous but there are so many times where you can’t help but like him. He is dark, manipulative and unbearably raw in a way that makes him one of the most interesting villains I’ve read. Aside from him, each of the characters and their stories, personalities, flaws and strengths are what make this story so hard to step away from.
This series was constantly changing pace, twisting in directions that I didn’t expect (or even want for that matter). The writing was beautiful and only got better which each book. My copies are literally filled with post-its and bookmarks for parts that I absolutely adored, that I read over and over again. And I honestly didn’t think I would be able to talk about this series without turning into a big flailing mess. With its strong characters, phenomenal world-building, continuously surprising plot and fantastic finale, The Grisha Trilogy has forced it’s way to the top of my favourites list.
