Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone is still one of the first books I recommend to anyone looking for a young adult series, so I was thrilled to return to familiar Grisha territory in The Language of Thorns. Bardugo took things in a new direction with this one; a collection of six stories of dangerous magic and dark fairy tale, lavishly illustrated by Sara Kipkin. The perfect read for Grisha fans or anyone who loves a good, twisty retelling of the dark stories we were told as children.
