Why must the Grishaverse be so AMAZING I want 9.
All the fairy tales have faint resemblance to ones I know Like I could see Little Mermaid influences and the Nutcracker and Hansel and Gretel But they re wayyyyy way different and DARK And super super dark at times And the best part They were loaded with plot twists It was like ever dumb fairy tale trope just got kicked in the teeth We don t throw princesses into the arms of the first prince they meet Beauty isn t everything Princes suck The beast is sweet Here is the sea witch s or These are so, so utterly beautiful I have not actually read the Grisha Trilogy okay now I have , only Six of Crows, but Bardugo s attention to detail in planning her Grisha world comes through in every one of her books that I ve read This one is no exception Somehow, these stories arethan just folktales they feel both like folktales told by your grandmother and ghost stories told by your friend beside a campfire It wasn t the cannibal witch that bothered me It wasn t even the selfish stepmother For me, the real villain was Hansel and Gretel s father, a man so weak willed, so cowardly, that he let his wicked wife send the children into the woods to die not once but twice.
Don t go back,I would whisper as we approached the inevitable final illustration happy father reunited with children, evil stepmother banis tis the season for fairy tales and leigh bardugo is a retelling queen but honestly, she could write the same word over and over for 100 pages and i would still love it plus, the illustrations in this are nothing short of remarkable this is such a treasure of a book ayama and the thorn wood ive actually never heard this story before, but its such an beautiful telling and so unique 4.
