Title: The witch of Duva (A short story from the Grisha trilogy)
Author: Leigh Bardugo
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.
An enticing dark, fairy tale with an unexpected twist. The Witch of Duva is a short story which takes place in the same world as the book Shadow and Bone and stars a girl by the name of Nadya. There is much tension after the death of her mother and the frequent disappearances of the girls in the village. This short story gives a greater depth into the book Shadow and Bone but does not include any of the characters from the book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves fairy tales and unforeseen endings.
