    Summary

    "Miss Starkov, are you aware of how distracting you are in my class?"

    My lips parted open, frozen as he turned around, bracing himself against the edge of his desk and leaning back slightly. His quartz eyes glimmered as he evaluated every inch of me in a painfully obvious manner, as if he were reading me like I was words on a page. I forced myself to speak. "I-I'm so sorry I came in late, but I have perfect attendance sir, this has never happened before and I'm a very dedicated student," I stumbled over my words frantically, my throat painfully tight in fear. He laughed, a dry, raspy chuckle that shut me up almost immediately. "That's not what I was referring to, Alina," he hummed, the sound of my name rolling off his tongue sending goosebumps down my arms. It was almost... seductive.

    Summary

    Alina Starkov has never been impulsive, and even less decisive. Her decision to take Professor Morozova up on his proposition is the complete opposite: stupid, thoughtless, reckless. But if she can guarantee herself easy As all semester and gain some much lacking experience in the boy department to help her woo Mal Oretsev, it can't turn out as badly as she thinks it will. After all, he only wants one thing in return.

    Summary

    If their tale had been a novel or action movie the story would have been over. The villain should have been vanquished, the kingdom should have been saved, the heroine should have been prevailed. They should have had closure.
    But they weren’t in a fairy tale. Alina Starkov was dead, burned to ash along side the leader of the anarchist cult that had nearly destroyed Russia. It was supposed to be over, but the Darkling had lived on through his ideals, and though he was gone the threat of the starless saint’s followers loomed over their home once again.
    The bittersweet end of Alina’s standoff had left them both fractured. With only the resources of the shattered Little Palace the two determine they will be the ones to go undercover into the lion’s den to find out what kind of threat this new cult holds. The mission might be the only chance they have to turn their corrupt country around for the better, and though both are determined to succeed or die trying, a new complication exists now that hadn’t been around for their first attempt to destroy to the Darkling and his movement.
    Alina also left behind something in those who knew her best— grief.

    Summary

    Alina’s story as an eight-year-old who’s just discovered she’s Ravka’s savior. She grows up with the favor of the Darkling and all the girls in her classes want to be her. She struggles at first to use her power but as soon as she lets Keramzin go she blossoms into a Black Lotus, the Darkling’s protege.

    She lets go of Mal and her past and clings to the future.

    Snippet:

    I cradled his head in my arms and looked into his eyes. “I am nothing without you! You’ve done so much for me and the last thing I said to you was horrible!” I pressed a ginger kiss to his black hair.

    I leaned away from him and saw he was giving me a watery smile, “You are the sun, Alina. Everything revolves around you, I am merely the darkness giving you contrast to shine.”

    Summary

    The cold bit into his skin and he relished the pain as a welcome delight. Pain meant being alive, in all the senses that truly mattered. With a flick of his fingers, he clothed himself in shadowy silk, the fabric dulling the burn of the chill. The smile he wore now was real, real as his body and his garments, both of which he created through will alone. He was no longer only Grisha—though, arguably, he had never been just a Grisha—now, he was Merzost.

    The Darkling had perished, and something different had risen in his place. Like he’d taken back life, he’d take back his name—and all else that rightfully belonged to him.

    Like calls to like.
