The first-ever graphic novel in Leigh Bardugo’s beloved Grishaverse is a stunning prequel to the Shadow and Bone series following the early days of The Darkling. This origin story of one of the Grishaverse’s most notorious villains is a must-read for Bardugo fans old and new.
Before he led Ravka’s Second Army, before he created the Fold, and long before he became the Darkling, he was just a lonely boy burdened by an extraordinary power.
Eryk and his mother, Lena, have spent their lives on the run. But they will never find a safe haven. They are not only Grisha—they are the deadliest and rarest of their kind. Feared by those who wish to destroy them and hunted by those who would exploit their gifts, they must hide their true abilities wherever they go. But sometimes deadly secrets have a way of revealing themselves . . .
