Friday, 22 August 2014
GENRE: Fantasy
PAGES: 352
FORMAT: Paperback
BUY IT: Waterstones
RATING: 5 Stars

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?

An outstanding start to a fantastic trilogy. Any one who likes fantasy should read this trilogy, it's full of action, mystery, friendship, romance and drama. Alina is a wonderful character who is thrust into a situation like no other, and must be strong to survive the trials that lie ahead for her. As soon as you finish this you will immediately want to go on to Seige and Storm and then Ruin and Rising. I have read them all twice now, and will be re-reading them time and time again.

- Gem.
