Shadow and Bone is not a typical book for me. It’s a science fiction/fantasy with a focus on the fantasy part. I don’t read those generally.
But I’ve made some exceptions, like Graceling and Fire and a few others. This book, too, has a female protagonist. And I really enjoyed it. So much so that I read the whole book in one day. It’s my kind of book. Well-developed characters, interesting plot, fast pace.
I’m glad I read it and I look forward to more from this author.
