The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic

Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

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, #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.
Why I’m waiting: I am a huge Leigh Bardugo fan! First the Grisha Trilogy and then Six of Crows and I was hooked!! The Language of Thorns sounds like such an amazing collection of short stories that I cannot wait to read! Not to mention I am so excited for the illustrations that accompany each story!
