There was a time when the woods near Duva ate girls…or so the story goes. But it’s just possible that the danger may be a little bit closer to home. This story is a companion folk tale to Leigh Bardugo’s debut novel, Shadow and Bone.
3.5 / 5
Though I do not understand how this short story fits into the Grisha Verse trilogy, I enjoyed it nonetheless.
Yes, you have guessed it right. I have not read the trilogy yet, and therefore, I started with number 0.5 in the trilogy.
Irrespective, the story was perfect. Not completely a fairytale and neither completely a nightmare. Some of both. And that is what made it perfect.
Another thing to rejoice over is the fact that I did not need to have any prior knowledge of the trilogy to make sense of the short story in my hand.
