Being around Nikolai was always like this, watching him shift and change, revealing secrets as he went. He reminded me of the wooden nesting dolls I’d played with as a child. Except instead of getting smaller, he just kept getting grander and more mysterious. Tomorrow, he’d probably tell me he’d built a pleasure palace on the moon. Tough to get to, but quite a view.

Things I expected out of the Grishaverse: action, cool spy stuff, thieving, adventure, royalty, mystical powers, and heartbreak.
Things I did not expect: to have pronounced some of these names so very, very wrong the entire time I read them.


attention everyone ! we have been blessed with new paperback covers ❤️💛❤️💛❤️

The Darkling is probably that kinda guy who says stuff like “Change is good. Change is necessary. Change is what will change us, shape us.” But in reality he would use the Cut on someone if his favourite coffee mug got misplaced or someone added a slightly less shade of black tshirt in his wardrobe. 

Me reading The Grisha Trilogy vs me reading Six of Crows



Who are you, and what are you playing at?”
Nikolai Lantsov, but please don’t make me recite all my titles again. It’s no fun for anybody, and the only important one is ‘prince’.”
“And what about Sturmhond?”
I’m also Sturmhond, commander of the Volkvolny, scourge of the True Sea.“

  • Alina Starkov: [almost gets crushed beneath feet by a soldier and calls him a fathead for jaywalking]
  • Alina Starkov: [calls the Darkling insane for believing she can destroy the shadow fold]
  • Alina Starkov: [beats Zoya's ego to the ground in Botkin's class]
  • Alina Starkov: [hits and kicks the prince of Ravka]
  • Alina Starkov: [tries to escape numerous times from the Darkling's grasp that enrages him]
  • Alina Starkov: [tries to escape from the Apparat and his Sun Summoning brainwashed cult]
  • Alina Starkov: [tells Baghra to fuck off with her old ass]
  • Alina Starkov: [almost kills the Darkling with merzost]

Mal found me there, head buried in my arms, coat covered in green needles. He offered me his hand, but I ignored it.
“I’m all right,” I said, though nothing could have been less true.
“It’s getting dark. You shouldn’t be out here alone.”
“I’m the Sun Summoner. It gets dark when I say it does.”
