Description of this Book

The much-anticipated first book in a brand-new duology by New York Times bestselling author, Leigh Bardugo. Nikolai Lantsov has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country's bloody civil war - and he intends to keep it that way. Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, the young king must find a way to refill Ravka's coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army. Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha Squaller, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren't meant to stay buried--and some wounds aren't meant to heal.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Every story is superb, Leigh Bardugo has an honest, vibrant voice that's capable of unfolding her imaginings with true skill. Sara Kiplin's beautiful illustrations grow in complexity . . . making this a sumptuous feast for the mind and eyes * SFX Magazine on THE LANGUAGE OF THORNS * A delicious blend of masterfully executed elements... Bardugo outdoes herself in this exhilarating follow-up, and series fans will have their eyes glued to every page * Booklist on CROOKED KINGDOM * Bardugo outdoes herself with this book, creating the gorgeously built backdrop of Ketterdam and populating it with a sophisticated cast of rogues and criminals. A twisty and elegantly crafted masterpiece that thrilled me from beginning to end * Holly Black on SIX OF CROWS * Mesmerizing . . . shiver-inducing, of the delicious variety. This is what fantasy is for * Laini Taylor on the SHADOW AND BONE trilogy * Unlike anything I've ever read * Veronica Roth on the SHADOW AND BONE trilogy * It's like THE HUNGER GAMES meets POTTER meets TWILIGHT meets LORD OF THE RINGS meets GAME OF THRONES; basically epic magical fantasy but completely for grown-ups * Stylist on the SHADOW AND BONE trilogy *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 1 stars (out of 5)
