Shadow and Bone
Book 1, The Grisha Trilogy
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.
Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.
Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha…and the secrets of her heart.

I cannot wait to read this book. The first five chapters available in the iBook store kept me on the edge of my seat and I can't wait to see what happens next. If only I did not have to wait til June :-(
One of my fav books of 2012!
I loved Shadow and Bone so much. The characters are fantastic (especially Mal. I was in love by the end of chapter one!) and Bardugo's writing had me begging for more. I can't wait for the sequel!
This book is absolutely amazing- I could not put it down. Very upset I have to wait for the next book!
