Trailer Friday: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and Bone

Alina Starkov doesn’t expect much from life. Orphaned by the Border Wars, the one thing she could rely on was her best friend and fellow refugee, Mal. And lately not even that seems certain. Drafted into the army of their war-torn homeland, they’re sent on a dangerous mission into the Fold, a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh.

When their convoy is attacked, all seems lost until Alina reveals a dormant power that not even she knew existed. Ripped from everything she knows, she is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling. He believes she is the answer the people have been waiting for: the one person with the power to destroy the Fold.

Swept up in a world of luxury and illusion, envied as the Darkling’s favorite, Alina struggles to fit into her new life without Mal by her side. But as the threat to the kingdom mounts, Alina uncovers a secret that sets her on a collision course with the most powerful forces in the kingdom. Now only her past can save her . . . and only she can save the future.

The Gathering Dark

I didn't come across a new trailer these week so I decided to show you these two trailers for the same book. The first one is the US edition and the second one is the UK edition. I won Shadow and Bone recently in a giveaway and it was mind blowing. I will be posting the review for it in the next couple of days. Read the book! You really can't miss this one! Which one is your favorite? I like them both but the one for The Gathering Dark matches the book's atmosphere more.
