Next up in Book Battle 2015 is a trilogy. I oscillated between a few different trilogies before I finally settled on The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. There’s been so much hype surrounding these books, both good and bad, that I wanted to find out for myself what has so many people talking about this trilogy. The concept sounds fascinating to me. I love the Russian incorporated themes, and the marketer nailed it with the cover art. From the jacket it sounds like it’s going to follow the YA fantasy formula but I’m ready to be surprised. I’ve been reading different Russian themed books lately so this one should fit right in. I’m excited to see how the author incorporates the Russian culture and folklore into the novels.
Since this is a trilogy, I’ve decided that I’m going to do a post for each novel and then one for the entire trilogy summing up my thoughts as a whole on this work. So stay tuned for some Grisha magic. Happy reading!
