From the author of Six of Crows comes a tantalising glimpse inside the Grishaverse, an accompanying volume to Leigh Bardugo's bestselling Grisha series

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, 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

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

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

"Every story is superb, Leigh Bardugo has an honest, vibrant voice that's capable of unfolding her imaginings with true skill. Sara Kiplin's beautiful illustrations grow in complexity . . . making this a sumptuous feast for the mind and eyes" - SFX Magazine

"It's like THE HUNGER GAMES meets POTTER meets TWILIGHT meets LORD OF THE RINGS meets GAME OF THRONES; basically epic magical fantasy but completely for grown-ups" - Stylist on the SHADOW AND BONE trilogy *

"Bardugo outdoes herself with this book, creating the gorgeously built backdrop of Ketterdam and populating it with a sophisticated cast of rogues and criminals. SIX OF CROWS is a twisty and elegantly crafted masterpiece that thrilled me from beginning to end" - Holly Black on SIX OF CROWS *

Cracking page-turner with a multi-ethnic band of misfits with differing sexual orientations who satisfyingly, believably jell into a family. * Kirkus on SIX OF CROWS *

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 on CROOKED KINGDOM *
