Exclusive Comic-Con Interview with SHADOW AND BONE Author Leigh Bardugo


My fourth and final interview of the Comic-Con weekend was with Shadow and Bone author Leigh Bardugo, who was there to talk Siege and Storm, the sequel to Shadow and Bone and, of course, to be a fangirl just like everyone else there!

Like The Maze Runner author James Dashner, this was her 2nd visit to Comic-Con, and she finds it as enjoyable as everyone else, especially getting to meet other authors that she adores as well as the chance to “get exposed to things that are out of the YA world.” 

Warning: mild *spoilers* below

This time, I got to chat with her a little more about Siege and Storm, and then about the third book, Ruin and Rising.  One of the first questions that came to mind was about Sturmhond and what we can expect to see in regards to his role in the Big Palace.  Of course, she was quick to remind me that we don’t know what his situation is at this point, stating “Well, we don’t know if he is still alive.  He could be alive, he could be dead, he could be held prisoner.  We don’t know.”  I paused for a moment, realizing my faux pas and told her that I am just assuming he is (basically because how could you get rid of such a wonderful character, right?)

Read the rest of this very intriguing interview after the jump.

THE TOO-CLEVER FOX by Leigh Bardugo Now Available to Read


Leigh Bardugo’s companion folk tale The Too-Clever Fox is now available to read for free on Tor.com.

If you’ve read The Witch of Duva (which I highly recommend if you haven’t), then you should know what to expect when it comes to these Ravkan short stories.  And if you enjoyed the first one, you will most likely enjoy this one.

As for the synopsis of the story, the title really says it all.  To say more than that would probably spoil it for you.  It is a short story, after all.

SHADOW AND BONE Author Leigh Bardugo Posts Cover for New Short Story


Leigh Bardugo, author of Shadow and Bone and the upcoming sequel, Siege and Storm, just posted the cover art of her upcoming short story for The Too-Clever Fox, a Ravkan Folk Tale, which will be available sometime in May to read for free on Tor.com.

The art is by Anna and Elena Balbusso, who also did the cover art for Leigh’s first Ravkan folk tale, The Witch of Duva, which is also available to read for free on Tor.

The Ravkan folk tales are separate from the Grisha novels in that they don’t have anything to do with the characters or plot of the Shadow and Bone story, but they are set in the world that Mal and Alina live in.  So, don’t expect things to be straightforward, but expect that little bit of a twist or two that just gives the readers a bit of a chill, but in a good way.
