The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo

Publication Date: September 26th 2017

Goodreads Summary
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.

It’s a known fact that the Six of Crows duology is one of my all time favourite series. So when I found out about this book I was positively overjoyed. I’ve still not read The Grisha trilogy but I love mythologies and the fact that they’re set in the Grishaverse is a bonus.

What’s your most anticipated book?
