{Release Day!} The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo @FierceReads

September 26, 2017 Young Adult 2

Happy Happy release day to Leigh Bardugo and fans of the grisha verse because today is a special day for two reasons! One, Leigh’s new book, The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic. And because there is a new announcement for another book in the Grishverse!

First let’s check out The Language of Thorns because this book is seriously beautiful. I love how much time was spent on the details, from making the book feel lux to all of the beautiful illustrations from the fantastic Sara Kipin.

Pages: 224
Published by Macmillan/Imprint on September 26th 2017

Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns.

Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price.

Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.

Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales will transport you to lands both familiar and strange—to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.

This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.

    Holy crap, your pictures are GORGEOUS! I hope you love the book, too. I can’t wait to dive into my own. I briefly flipped through it, and yeah, it’s incredible! Super excited about the Nikolai book- but seriously, is anyone not freaking out about it these days? 😀
