Young Adult Fiction
If I am going to be honest right from the get-go, Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo is one hell of a fantastic adventure. It follows the story of an orphan named Alina Starkov, who is taken from obscurity and her only friend, Mal, to become one of the Darkling's apprentice. He takes her to the Little Palace to provide her some shelter as she trains her power to summon the Sun. But everything is not what Alina is led to believe . . .
