There are 3 things that really draw me in to buying a book, the first being the author. If it’s an author I know and love then I am 99% going to one-click. The 2nd thing is a blurb. I love an enticing, promising blurb! Then there is the cover……..
Now this book does not have the most exciting of covers. Its really non-descript. Well in my eyes it is. But that is what drew me to it…..
Title: The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Release date: 26 September 2017 (pre order available)
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.
Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.
Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales 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, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.
Anyone manage to get an arc? I would love to hear your thoughts.
