Leigh Bardugo's Grisha series

Post by Seeress of Kell »

I know Morey's been reading these, and I've read them before... they're very, very good. It's not your cookie cutter fantasy book - largely because rather than being set in a feudal Europe type world, it's set in a world based largely on Russia. That, and the magic system is something I haven't read a thousand times.

The story centers on Malyen Oretsev and Alina Starkov, a pair of orphans who grew up together and entered the Ravkan army together. Their group goes to cross the Shadow Fold (a large, dark, stationary cloud that reminded me of Torak's cloud over Cthol Mishrak) and Alina finds out she's something called the Sun Summoner.

Leigh Bardugo is a really good author, and if you're looking for something refreshingly different, definitely check these out. There's three books in the Grisha trilogy: Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, and Ruin and Rising. There's also two more books set in a different part of the same world, Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom.
