    Summary

    Once, when no shadows divided countries and generals led armies, there was a little boy with shadows between his hands and a little girl with light between hers.

    Alina doesn't remember anything. Nobody seems to know her and nobody seems to miss her. Yet, deep inside she still has the hope that someone out there remembers her and that maybe some day, she'll remember again.
    After waking up from a coma without any memories of her past life and a golden necklace with her name engraved in it as her only possession, Alina is taken in by the Starkov's. For some time, she works in their modest inn and lives a simple life. One day, she joins the military and, during a crossing of the Fold, discovers that she can summon light. Her whole life changes. Everyone, grisha and common folks alike, looks at the girl like she is the answer while she herself doesn't even know who she was, is, and most importantly, who she is going to be.

    Summary

    Inej Ghafa wasn't famous in the typical manner. Despite just turning twenty-two, marking the tenth year of her acting career, she hadn't found any sort of niche to inhabit, mostly due to the fact that she'd spent the good majority of those ten years playing Ishani Basu on Learning to Fall, a show about an aerial performer/teenage chosen one, originally based on a nine-book long series she'd been obsessed with in middle school. Now that the show had finally ended, will she able to break out of the mold her teenage career has set her into, or will she be remembered forever as Ishani?

    Summary

    She splutters then, cheeks even redder somehow, though he noted the breathy little sound that left her lips, interesting, “Then what did you, like mean?” He near laughs at her hasty change of subject.

    “I mean” He pauses then, leans forward, elbows on the table, eyebrow raised, catches her gaze, doesn’t break it, even as she gasps a touch, pupils dilating, not looking away this time, “Alina Starkov, how would you like to be a star?”

    Summary

    It wasn’t as if she was completely in the dark about those matters, having witnessed a few of those dealings before. Hadn’t this also happened to her good friend Genya?

    Alina sighed again. It wouldn’t do to think about Genya now, for it made her eyes misty with unshed tears at the thought of how long it had been since she’d last seen her. At the same time, thinking about Genya made her a little nervous about her own current situation as well, because Alina knew that it was only a matter of time before she embarked on the same path.

    She shook her head, as if to clear it, and kept her gaze on the door.

    Even if she wouldn’t have known better, the chatter through the village of Keramzin would have been enough to keep her from being completely clueless about what was going on. Everywhere she went, Alina felt eyes looking at her and the buzzing sound of people gossiping behind her back.

    Everyone knew what was going on with Alina. And, what was worse, the way Mr Oretsev and his son were taking the rumours and the subtle teasing by the rest of the villagers was utterly mortifying.

    Summary

    Their powers may be connected and their fates intertwined, but he’s still a leader used to doling out commands and she’s a woman unaccustomed to following orders.

    Excerpt:

    “I’ll protect you, General. Don’t worry.”

    “And who will protect me from you, Ms. Starkov?”

    “No one, Aleksander. It’s too late for that. You’re already mine.”

    Summary

    The Shadow Fold has endured for more than six hundred years. Now in the twenty-first century, the Darkling serves under greedy politicians as a five-star General of the Second Army. Until he can make his move towards power, until he can finally find his fabled Sun Summoner.

    Alina Starkov is just an entry-level intelligence analyst for the Ravkan First Army, watching massive screens of satellite footage for hours on end. Mostly handling documentation, cross-referencing incoming intel, outlining small skirmishes on digital maps. The minutia kind of stuff. She'd be the first to tell you that she isn't anyone special, certainly not Grisha.

    Or: A modern retelling of Shadow and Bone.

    Summary

    Alina is mostly content to sketch, work in her garden, and help her stepsisters with their studies while living in her stepmother's house after her father dies. Things are good... until there is a ball, and a prince, and a decision to be made.

     

    Basically Alina is Cinderella, The Darkling is The Prince, and these two idiots try their best.

    Summary

    Dreams in the dark about the bruises he might leave were he to touch with intent, about the bloody marks he might bite into her skin, about the claim she would let him make of her body, her mind, her soul.

    Dreams of the hunger she sees barely banked in his eyes, in the predatory lean of his body, in the dangerous flash of those teeth behind his smiles.

    Dreams of what might happen were she to just turn away from him and run. Would he let her go? Or would he chase her down like prey in the night, hold her down and make her take whatever he decided to give her?

    Summary

    "Her mother, Princess Yi Kun of Shu Han, third and youngest daughter of Queen Jian Bao, had been banished after her marriage with Joachim Starkov, a Ravkan man. The couple lived quietly in a modest house in Keramzin, a small Ravkan village near the border with Shu Han. But, once news of the death of both Yi Kun and Joachim reached her Majesty, she had made sure Ai Ling was brought where she belonged.
    The death of her estranged daughter was a hard blow on the Queen, but it was exactly what she’d needed to decide that this war had to finish. Therefore, her and the Tsar Alexander III of Ravka started the delicate process of peace. The negotiations had been going on for over ten months, but, at last, it seemed the two countries had almost reached a definitive understanding and the finalisation of the treaty depended on the positive outcome of the approaching meeting."
