    Ravka is ruled benevolently by Grisha.

    Summary

    "You killed my friends, you killed my family, you force-fed me a demon, and you tried to kill me. Why am I here?"

    Pressed beneath him on the bed, his companion’s fingers reached up to map the tired, troubled lines on the King’s countenance.

    "You killed my friends, you killed my family, you killed my demons, and you did kill me. Why am I here?"

    Nikolai rested their foreheads together, entwined their fingers, and breathed in the chill wintery scent of shadows that the moonlight couldn't dispel. He sighed.

    "This, us, now," he tapped the smooth pale planes of the chest below his, "May be the worst thing I have ever done."

    The Darkling smiled sympathetically. "There will be others, in time."

     

    Aka: The one in which Nikolai is determined to salvage as much as he can from the ruins of the Civil War, including an old understanding with an incredibly pissed-off Aleksander. If anyone can do it, it's the new King of Ravka.

    Summary

    Fedyor has been hoping for the Sun Summoner to be found ever since he discovered his own Grisha abilities and went to live at the Little Palace. When he’d pictured them, though, he’d never expected a slightly feral waif of a girl with a penchant for biting Ivan. Still, he can’t deny she makes life more interesting.

    Summary

    Over the years, Leigh Bardugo has stated many times that the character of the Darkling was inspired by a number of other fictional characters.

    This is a project to trace the literary ancestry of the Grishaverse by comparing/contrasting the Darkling with each of those other characters, as well as comparing/contrasting Darklina's relationship with the equivalent relationships depicted in the other works.

    Alina is five years old when she first meets the Shadow Man. It changes everything.
