I really enjoyed my reread of Shadow and Bone, I couldn’t really believe how short the book actually was and how quickly the plot unfolded. The only thing I am really missing is some more of the history of the Grisha’s and the different kinds. We get a little bit of an explanation but not enough for me to completely understand. It has been about 4/5 years now since I’ve read these books so I’ve forgotten a lot and I wasn’t given a lot to work with here. I think it’s easy to fall for the Darkling and I am still lowkey a stan but his shift when I first read these books really took me by surprise and I was here for it for sure! It’s a little unrealistic how quickly Alina believes Baghra but other than that I really enjoyed this book. Not quite a 5 star even though the nostalgia was high but this was thrilling, entertaining and everything I love about fantasy books!
