Adela Oltean a dat nota:

Beautiful book! Each story has something special and the illustrations completed the magical journey.

Ina Fabian a dat nota:

'Magic doesn’t require beauty,’ she said. 'Easy magic is pretty. Great magic asks that you trouble the waters. It requires a disruption, something new.' This was perfection! The stories were inspired from classic fairytales and turned into new tales, but darker and surely not with an easy, obvious ending. My favorite one was 'When water sang fire', inspired from 'Ariel' but with a dark twist. I absolutely loved the written style, the author surely knows what to deliver at the right time. Have I told you about the incredible, vivid illustrations? Well, they are really stunning and they slowly change from one page to another. I'm glad I own this pretty book and I've finally read it!

See the Grishaverse come to life on screen with Shadow and Bone, now a Netflix series.

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.

Enter the Grishaverse...

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.

Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, the tales in The Language of Thorns 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, each of them lavishly illustrated and culminating in stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.
