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...
Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, the tales in The Language of Thorns 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, each of them lavishly illustrated and culminating in stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.

I don't often read short stories, but I had such a great time reading these Grishaverse fables and can't believe it's taken me this long to post this review! Because there are so many stories in this book, I've decided to simply talk about the book overall and not story by story.
What I Liked:
I took my time reading this because I assumed it would be the last of the Grisha world that Bardugo would give us for a while and I wanted to make it count. Overall, this was a beautiful series of stories that brought readers back into this magical world for a small snippet of time and I'm thrilled that it's another wonderful book to add to my bookshelf.
FINAL RATING: 4.5/5
Hi, I'm Alexandra! I love reading (largely YA fiction, but sometimes I'll read "adult" books), playing board games, Nutella, and binge-watching TV shows on Netflix with my husband.
