Throwback Thursday: Shadow and Bone

Meme hosted by Melissa My World in Words and Pages. It's about books that are already on the shelves and are waiting to be read. Go to her website to join in!

My submission:

Shadow and Bone
by Leigh Bardugo
Narrated by: Lauren Fortgang
The Shadow Fold, a swathe of impenetrable darkness, crawling with monsters that feast on human flesh, is slowly destroying the once-great nation of Ravka. 
Alina, a pale, lonely orphan, discovers a unique power that thrusts her into the lavish world of the kingdom’s magical elite—the Grisha. Could she be the key to unravelling the dark fabric of the Shadow Fold and setting Ravka free? 
The Darkling, a creature of seductive charm and terrifying power, leader of the Grisha. If Alina is to fulfill her destiny, she must discover how to unlock her gift and face up to her dangerous attraction to him. 
But what of Mal, Alina’s childhood best friend? As Alina contemplates her dazzling new future, why can’t she ever quite forget him? 
Glorious. Epic. Irresistible. Romance.
 I won this at the AudioGals website in a post with Lauren Fortgang! I was going to get one of the Elemental Assassin books (she narrates those) but I decided to try something different that I haven't read yet and have wanted to read. Can't wait!

  1. Ooh, I really like this series. REALLY like it. I think S&B has its flaws, but it managed to have me so emotionally invested in the storyline that I was able to overlook those minor qualities. Its sequel, IMO, is significantly better - I just LOVED that book - and I'm anxiously waiting for the final book to release. Great pick, Melissa, and I can't wait to see what you think of this!

  2. I'm with Keertana -- I REALLY love this series. Each book has been unputdownable for me so far and I can't wait for the finale.

  3. READ IT MELISSA!!!! Or listen to it rather. Whichever. You need to meet The Darkling. Total book boyfriend material. And also not. I don't want to say too much about him. Can't wait to see what you think!

  8. I didn't realize that Lauren Fortgang narrates this book as well! I'm such a HUGE fan of her as Gin Blanco, that I'll probably give Shadow and Bone a try just because of that. Thanks for sharing!

  15. Ooh I love this series! I can't wait to read Ruin & Rising. Hope you enjoy the audio version, but it sounds like you already know you like the narrator, so I'm sure it will be a win! :-)
