"Travel to Grishnaverse, 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, author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love." --… (lisätietoja)

Spring 2021 (March);
Grishaverse Full Read April/March in preparation for Shadow & Bone TV Series

My third of the new books read for this quest, though that makes this one sound a little more than it is. This book is half made of the earlier smaller 'Shadow & Bones' short stories of [b:Little Knife|20818790|Little Knife (Grishaverse, #2.6)|Leigh Bardugo|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1402933942l/20818790._SX50_.jpg|40164691], [b:The Witch of Duva|13643163|The Witch of Duva (Grishaverse, #0.5)|Leigh Bardugo|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1336644891l/13643163._SX50_.jpg|19258458], and [b:The Too-Clever Fox|17790188|The Too-Clever Fox (Grishaverse, #2.5)|Leigh Bardugo|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1369846496l/17790188._SY75_.jpg|24881632], as well as three new Russian fairytale pieces from the lands around Ravka that all make big appearances in the Grishaverse books.

I really loved several of these. Important shoutouts. I love that the 'Nutrcracker' retelling involves the Nutcracker kissing both the brother and the sister, just as equally. I love the guest appearance of The Darkling in one of these, and what it expands for us on his family, and on another race that exists in this world, since that one is far less a retelling and more of a cross between 'The Little Mermaid' and another side story for The Darkling (and his mother's earlier choices), like [b:The Demon in the Wood|24641800|The Demon in the Wood (The Shadow and Bone Trilogy, #0.5)|Leigh Bardugo|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1445169126l/24641800._SX50_.jpg|44254534].

As a note, this book does not collect (and nowhere else is collected the S&B short pieces for [b:The Demon in the Wood|24641800|The Demon in the Wood (The Shadow and Bone Trilogy, #0.5)|Leigh Bardugo|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1445169126l/24641800._SX50_.jpg|44254534] & [b:The Tailor|17997353|The Tailor (The Shadow and Bone Trilogy, #1.5)|Leigh Bardugo|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1369842991l/17997353._SX50_.jpg|25254362].)

I would give this book all the stars I can without even reading it just for existing. Because this book is just GORGEOUS!!!!! Every story starts off with a small image in the corner which wraps around the pages as a frame as the story goes on, ending in a beautiful illustration that sums up the tale. Hats off to the idea and the colors and the art and Sara Kipin for bringing it all to life so beautifully.

I am usually not a fan of short stories but I have grown up reading the Indian fairytales and when your favorite author writes fairytale retellings, you don’t ignore it. I was just happy staring at this book and wouldn’t have minded even if the stories weren’t great, but the writing surprised me. Because these are not your usual happy, morally superior, happily ever after type tales. They are dark and twisty and a little creepy but also more mature and realistic. They tell you that not everyone who looks like a monster, is one; adventures don’t just happen to pretty girls; sometimes, the stepmother is not the only evil one in the story; you need to be wise, not just clever; and the most important one – Princes don’t always save you.

I enjoyed all of them (except may be Soldier Prince which confused me a little) but my favorites were Amaya and the Thorn Wood and When Water sang Fire. The writing is just amazing as usual, the words are so lyrical and beautiful and I kept going back to reread some gems. I also enjoyed the setting of the stories in our favorite fictional universe. It’s magical as usual.

And the most important part – Look for a little cameo from one of our most favorite Grishaverse character ever!!!! Ohhhh I loved it ❤️❤️❤️❤️ ( )

The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic - Bardugo
4 stars

I had the wrong impression of this book before I started it. I thought it was a collection of prequel or ‘between the books’ stories from Bardugo’s Grishaverse series. In fact, it is a collection of dark fairy tales set in the same universe. These stories do not involve any characters from the other books and could be read independently of the series. Some of the stories have recognizable elements from the Grimm brothers or Hans Christian Anderson. Several have a definite Russian or Polish flavor. They aren’t pretty stories. They have a dark atmosphere, not quite horror, but definitely gothic. As fairy tales, I felt they were too long winded. Bardugo seems to wallow in her detailed and frequently gory descriptions. However, every story ended with a surprising twist that alleviated any lingering boredom. ( )

This was actually my first foray into the Grishaverse. I got the ebook when it was on sale, and I loved it! And while the ebook contains the big illustrations at the end of each story, it doesn’t have all of the border designs, so of course I had to get the physical copy so I could enjoy all of that amazing art! I did a re-read after I finished the Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows books with a new appreciation and understanding of the world in which these stories are set, and I liked it just as much, if not more!

This is probably my favourite collection of fairy tale stories I’ve ever read! "Ayama and the Thorn Wood" and "When Water Sang Fire" are my favourites. ( )

The five stars I gave this book and the five stars awarded to the author's other works like Wonder Woman: Warbringer or Shadow and Bone are two entirely different stars. While WW:W entranced me with the relatable portrayal of Diana Prince and her Grisha Verse introduced me to an amazing world and cast of characters, this book is entirely different.

The Language of Thorns (Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic) is a set of fairytales based in the world of the Grisha. It has some inspiration from folk stories and fairy tales that we are all familiar with, but amazingly these minor details and similarities did not feel recycled or cliche. In fact, they felt very fresh and I loved how I would think "oh... it's ina like _" only to have my expectations (often brought on by the tropes we find in current fairy tales) totally thrown out the window. Leigh Bardugo has done something amazing with these few Grisha legends: she has created a whole new form of fairytales, ones where marriage isn't always the solution and often times the witch isn't who you thought they were. These are the fairy tales a lot of little girls all over the world have been wanting since they noticed that every female Grimm and Anderson character usually ends up being saved or dead.

And it was a visual masterpiece! Throughout this book are illustrations that grow bit by bit on every page. Something is always added, removed, or changed and it falls perfectly in place with the development of the story. It couldn't be more apparent than in the last one where the border images go through two complete transformations as the characters change and grow. I found myself stopping to look at the differences and how they tied into the story more time than I could count. And it was not helpful that the artwork done by Sara Kipin was amazing.

Not only that, but these stories were told as if they were fairy tales. they had a dark, foreboding feeling and a prose style that was just screaming to be read aloud by a fire on a cool winter night. While I liked some more than others, I couldn't help but notice how incredible they were and the way they had been placed in the book. The first one has a lot to do with stories and subverting and expectations of ending based on the stories we know which cleverly embeds the idea in the reader that these tails aren't average.

These tales were crafted with care and whit and are great for any Grisha fan or someone looking for a good collection to read before bed could enjoy. Not much knowledge of the Grisha Verse is needed to understand what is going on, and the few things that are mention, generall Grisha and Fjerdan word for "witch" is explained and the included map can help anyone unfamiliar with the layout understand the few areas mentioned.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes Fantasy, fairy tales, and/or the world of Leigh Bardugo. ( )
