The Language of Thorns

Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

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.

Customer Reviews

Be wary of tales told

Calling upon traditions much older than she is, author Leigh Bardugo fashions and refashions tales from what she calls the Grishaverse. Each tale is wonderful and each resonates of stories we learned as children: “The Little Mermaid” “Hansel and Gretel”. “The Nutcracker” “Pinocchio “...

These stories, as tinged with horror as they are with hope, give us not only “fairy tales” but creation songs and “questions wiser than we know” to misquote “Rimskittle”(a book I grew up with).

Historical sharing makes them so. This small book will provoke childhood and reaches widely towards the future, and will keep you thinking long after the last page is reached. 4/5
