Description

Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, number one New York Times best-selling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.

Enter the Grishaverse.... Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns.

Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms, and where a river might do a lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price.

Perfect for new listeners and dedicated fans, the tales in The Language of Thorns will transport you to lands both familiar and strange - to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.

Like a Sister Grimm

I loved the first story, but could barely finish the next two. It is very well written, but dark. These fairytales teach lessons in the old grim way but for this day and age. The overall moral seems to be: be careful who you trust because even the people you love and count on the most can be hiding a monster inside. These stories haunt me unpleasantly. I don't think I'll finish them.
If you are a fan of Grimm fairytales, where the witch is rolled down the hill in a barrel studded with nails or are cooked in their own ovens, you'll probably love these.
***Spoiler alert***
The thing is, the innocent are harmed dreadfully in these stories too. I guess that makes it more like real life, and is a lesson in itself. The happily ever after in the stories I read left the protagonist almost as battered and scarred as the antagonist.

Folk Tales as they were meant to be

I love story telling. I love fairy tales. I love hearing different iterations of fairy tales. I've always been drawn to the darker classic versions. And I've thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the Grishaverse. This book brings all those things together. These stories are dark and human and fantastical and raw.

Another Amazing Book for Leigh Bardugo

Ayama and the Thorn Wood: 5/5
WHOA! This story was great, it hit Cinderella with a touch of the Greek Myth of the Minotaur, and just whoa, It blended amazing. The artwork was very cool, I loved how it took over the page.

The Too-Clever Fox: 5/5
This is one of my favorites that Leigh has Written, The artwork added in was a huge bonus!

The Witch of Duva: 5/5
AHH. I listened to this one through the audiobook and it was amazing! Holy Crud! A+++ Artwork yet again was amazing.

Little Knife: 10/5
Let me just say the Artwork blew me away, this is my Favorite Leigh Bardugo Short Story. Just AMAZING!

The Soldier Prince: 4.9/5
This is the only story that fell a little short for me, It took me awhile to get into it but it was still really great! The Nutcracker aspect was great!

When Water Sang Fire: 10/5
I think I might have a another favorite! GO LEIGH! AGH. I loved this! I loved the Mermaids and just. GAH. I can't even tell you how much I loved this!



Overall:
Leigh Bardugo knows how to write, man. The Language of Thorns is certainly amazing, The Narrator was amazing and her voice hit Leigh's writing perfectly!

I like the writing style

I listened to these one story a day. The stories are a little dark. Great old-style fairy tale feel. I am likely to listen to these again at some point.

Perfect stories for adults

Finally some remarkably narrated stories for adults too to enjoy.
Ms Bardugo is an exelent old fashioned writer and I loved all her previous Grisha books and this very talented narrator, Lauren Fortgang, brings to life these stories in a so enchanting and perfect narration.

Good Audio book

Great pacing and narration. Stories were unique, captivating and well written. Loved how much effort was put into this, especially when some audio books are so rushed and not thought out.
