Overview

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.

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.

Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales 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, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.

From the Publisher

Crooked Kingdom:

“It’s a delicious blend of masterfully executed elements ... Bardugo outdoes herself in this exhilarating follow-up, and series fans will have their eyes glued to every page.”—Booklist, starred review.

“Un-put-down-able excitement from beginning to end.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review.

“Bardugo’s ingenious plotting that characterized Crows is again on full display, and the backstories, loyalties, flaws, and romantic alliances….are richly developed.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (BCCB), starred review

Six of Crows:

“This has all the right elements to keep readers enthralled: an entertainingly combative team of skilled misfits, a twisty plot, and a nerve-wracking cliffhanger.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Cracking page-turner with a multi ethnic band of misfits with differing sexual orientations who satisfyingly, believably jell into a family.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“This is an easy choice for teens who enjoyed the Grisha Trilogy, Diviners, or any of the Shadowhunter books.”
VOYA, starred review
