Review

A New York Times Bestseller

"Lushly designed and wonderfully rendered ... Bardugo doesn't twist familiar tales so much as rip them open." --Booklist, starred review

"Strong writing, compelling stories, and gorgeous illustrations make this collection a must-have." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Beautiful imagery conceived from precise, beautiful prose; beautiful cover image and interior illustrations that creep across each page toward a beautiful consummation; beautiful lands inhabited by beautiful hearts." --VOYA, starred review

"Elegantly crafted...stylishly intricate illustrations...all fans of the darker side of folktales and folktale-like stories will find the stories satisfyingly full of pain, danger, and vengeance." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"Gorgeously otherworldly...Any lover of retellings or original fairy tales will enjoy." --Kirkus Reviews

"Gorgeous, cruel and almost wistful windows onto the dreamscapes and hard lessons of [Bardugo's] alternate universe ... fairy tales with all the darkness intact." --NPR Book Review

"Those who seem innocent are shown to be guilty, one-dimensional characters become more complicated, and mothers who once were absent are given presence and power." --Mashable

"This new collection will intrigue, awe, frighten, and inspire both stalwart fans and new readers looking for a heady spoonful of fantasy." --Hypable

"This nightmare-inducing collection is short but powerful, each tale as brilliant and absorbing as the one before... brilliant storytelling" --Romantic Times

"Marvelous tales, as full of twists and delights and strangeness as anything found in the Grimm Brothers. Leigh Bardugo is a master." --Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble

Praise for Crooked Kingdom:

"It's a delicious blend of masterfully executed elements ... Bardugo outdoes herself in this exhilarating follow-up, and series fans will have their eyes glued to every page."--Booklist, starred review.

"Un-put-down-able excitement from beginning to end." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review.

"Bardugo's ingenious plotting that characterized Crows is again on full display, and the backstories, loyalties, flaws, and romantic alliances....are richly developed." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (BCCB), starred review

Praise for Six of Crows

"This has all the right elements to keep readers enthralled: an entertainingly combative team of skilled misfits, a twisty plot, and a nerve-wracking cliffhanger." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Cracking page-turner with a multi ethnic band of misfits with differing sexual orientations who satisfyingly, believably jell into a family."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This is an easy choice for teens who enjoyed the Grisha Trilogy, Diviners, or any of the Shadowhunter books."
--VOYA, starred review

Product Description

From bestselling author of SIX OF CROWS, Leigh Bardugo, comes a darkly atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice and love - each featuring a stunning illustration by Sara Kiplin.

Inspired by myth, fairy tale and folklore, THE LANGUAGE OF THORNS will transport you to both lands familiar and strange that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.

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.

Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, no. 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 of the Grishaverse.

This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them featuring a stunning illustration by Sara Kiplin, as rich in detail as the stories themselves.
