    Soldier. Summoner. Saint
    I bought shadow and bones after reading crooked kingdom duo-logy so obviously, my expectations were high and I would say I was not disappointed not in the least bit. I found myself consumed by the Grishaverse. The life of Alina, intrigued by the dark-ling but swept off by the loyalty of Mal.
    Shadow and bone introduces us to the life of Alina and Mal. Two ordinary orphans sent to a war plagued by their country. A war not fought with ordinary guns and sword but with abilities far beyond the comprehension of normal humans. With abilities as old as their country but not the less just as feared.
    Will loyalty, and friendship overcome powers as ancient as time itself?

    Give me immature/fanfic vibes. The duration spent on travel seemed too long at times. Also, the transition of seasons was more telling than showing. I do, however, like all the characters. I grasped onto the darkling, and was surprised at the reveal. I also have no idea what to make of the Apparat, I liked the darkling when he was lying to Alina more. The whole prisoner of a powerful guy thing reminds me of "the red queen" series (but I'm glad it didn't last long)

    The very beautiful craftsmanship of the characters is a truly engaging experience. Must-read for any fantasy/romance fans.
