Synopsis: “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.”

OMG this collection is amazing! The artwork is beautiful. There is NOTHING to hate about this. I need more Grisha in my life. I can’t wait for her next book.
My favorite is When Water Sang Fire and I totally want more of Ulla. I feel like her story doesn’t end here. There has got to be more to it. All of the stories are fantastic. Read this if you love the Grisha world and if you don’t know what that is but you just happen to be into retellings you should still read this.
The stories are full of strong and independent women, women who question what they are told, that don’t just take what is expected of them but exceeds to what THEY want. There are some guys in the stories as well that are more than what they appear.
I seriously can’t get enough of Leigh’s writing and the stories she creates.
