The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

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.

This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them beautifully illustrated with art by Sara Kipin that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.

Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, No. 1 New York Times-bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.

Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans of the Grishaverse.

Peer & Press Reviews

Lushly designed and wonderfully rendered… Bardugo doesn’t twist familiar tales so much as rip them open.

Booklist (starred review)

Every story is superb, Leigh Bardugo has an honest, vibrant voice that’s capable of unfolding her imaginings with true skill.  Sara Kipin’s beautiful illustrations grow in complexity… making this a sumptuous feast for the mind and eyes

SFX Magazine

Gorgeously otherworldly…  Any lover of retellings or original fairy tales will enjoy.
