Na razrusha’ya. I am not ruined. E’ya razrushost. I am ruination.
The story of these books – namely Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm as well as Ruin and Rising – and yours truly is one that needed quite some time to develop. I bought the first book back in 2014 on my second trip to London. I was quite intrigued by the cover and the synopsis sounded pretty good so it was one of the few that were allowed to travel back home in my luggage. Once arrived at home it found a nice and cosy place on one of my bookshelves and yeah. That was it. I didn’t care to take another look at it and lost myself in other books that fitted my preferences at this time more. But last year I finally took hold of it again and dove right into Ravka and the world of the Grisha. I raced through the first book and immediately ordered the second one to read it afterward and I was amazed. But since my concentration span is really short – not really, only when it comes to books, I swear! – I pushed in some other books and series before I finally started reading the third book and let me say – this trilogy is wonderful!
