Summary

A New York Times bestseller and Netflix sensation, the Grisha Trilogy (Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, Ruin and Rising) is the story of a teenage orphan growing up in Ravka (loosely based on a Russian town) who has power beyond her understanding.

Alina Starkov isn’t just a child orphaned by the Border Wars; she is a Sun Summoner and Saint. Great power comes with great responsibility and even greater trouble, intrigue, and danger. Written by Leigh Bardugo and thrillingly narrated by Lauren Fortgang, the Grisha Trilogy is as stunning as the hype suggests. When you enter the Grishaverse, don’t expect to return the same.

Initially published in 2012, Shadow and Bone (the first title, followed by Siege and Storm in 2013 and Ruin and Rising a year later) celebrates expert science fiction storytelling and incredible world-building. Author Leigh Bardugo’s young adult fantasy series enraptured a new generation of fans when adapted for Netflix in 2021, sparkling on the screen as it did on the page. This audiobook adaptation is every bit the equal of both.

The Grisha Trilogy is an intricate celebration of epic adventure and complex structures. Alina Starkov narrates it all, and it isn’t long before Mal, Genya, the Darkling and the rest come to life, with the terror of Kirigan (a Shadow Summoner) never far away. Can Alina Starkov harness her newfound powers in the right way to save her childhood best friend, or will the pressures and control of the Grishaverse come tumbling down on her? A journey across the Shadow Fold isn’t child’s play. A world of Corporalki, Etherealki and Materialki, of fabrikators, tidemakers and heartrenders, awaits. The Grisha Trilogy (also known as the Shadow and Bone trilogy) is a young adult fantasy accentuated by various other works (the Crooked Kingdom and Six of Crows duology, The Language of Thorns short story collection and the King of Scars and Rule of Wolves) series of intricate storylines without equal. An extraordinary novel, a fantastic TV series, and a stunning audiobook. Time to embrace Grisha’s power.
