‘Shadow and Bone,’ by Leigh Bardugo
Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee. Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life - a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling. Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems.
Thank you! When the Grisha came to test inseparable friends Alina and Malyen, neither showed any aptitude for the Small Science. Years later, they are in the army, Alina in the cartographer corps and Mal a tracker. An attack by the terrifying volcra brings forth a power Alina never knew she had: She is a Sun Summoner. The charismatic, quartz-eyed Darkling takes her to the palace to learn the art of the Etherealki, and Mal is left behind. Bardugo allows the details of Grisha magic to unfold with limited exposition, using Alina's ignorance for readers' benefit.
Elves, bows, medieval England and enchanted forests.

I absolutely loved every moment of my reread. During my first read in , I instantly thought that it was one of the most unique, detailed, and awe-inspiring book worlds. It felt like the book was just as addictive the second time around as I found myself utterly in awe of the world of Ravka once more! Alina, our narrator, is such a fabulous character, she has such stellar growth throughout. She must navigate her way through brutal training and finds an ally in Genya whose friendship I adored early on and finds herself being favoured by The Darkling—I promise you will not find a more devilishly handsome villain! Looking back at my first read through in , I never knew if I should instinctively trust him and when I met him again after all this time, even knowing how the series ends, I was faced with the same dilemma again.
