Travel to Grishnaverse, 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.
Warbringer ably sits in the sweet spot of the Venn diagram between established fans of the tales of Diana, Amazon Princess of Themyscria, and those who may not have experienced her stories beyond her role in the biggest box office smash of summer 2017. Teenage Diana is struggling to define herself on the mystical island, inhabited by warrior women of all cultures, transported there after their deaths in battle. Diana’s rescue of contemporary teen Alia is a literally earth-shaking violation of the island’s laws – she is advised by the Oracle to let Alia, a descendant of Helen of Troy, first of the haptandra, the Warbringers, die, in order to reduce world-wide strife. Diana defies the Oracle and leaves the island with Alia, determined to try to put an end to the curse of her lineage. This is a great story of female friendships, and difficult choices. -- Maryelizabeth
Master strategist Kaz Brekker and his team succeeded against extraordinary challenges and achieved their target objective in Six of Crows, only to be double-crossed at the 11th hour. Leigh follows her fantastic heist novel with a stunning revenge novel, as Kaz and the rest engage all their wiles and skills, magical and otherwise, in the streets, halls, and roofs of Ketterdam to not only acquire the monetary reward they were promised and denied, but also exact their revenge and recover what’s been taken. The stakes are extraordinary; they are vastly outnumbered by the opposition (from three nations, as well as local adversaries and even sometimes allies), and there are even some doubts about their abilities to work together. Leigh engages readers’ brains, as they try to keep up with the elaborate schemes, and their hearts as they engage with the amazing cast of characters. Breathtaking! -- Maryelizabeth
The first volume in Leigh’s Dregs duology, set in the Grishaverse, is a heart-wrenching combination of caper novel and character studies. Think “Leverage” meets “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” but in an alternate magical Russia. Six of Crows has one of the best opening sentences ever, kicking off a grand magical heist adventure with characters readers will be thrilled to cheer for. This book is so much fun!The first volume in Leigh’s Dregs duology, set in the Grishaverse, is a heart-wrenching combination of caper novel and character studies.
