A collection of folklore-inspired stories set in the world of her best-selling Grishaverse novels includes three new tales of dark bargains, talking beasts and lovelorn quests, in a volume complemented by spot art and six richly detailed, full-spread illustrations. Simultaneous eBook.
Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times-bestselling 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 readers 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.
This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, each of them lavishly illustrated and culminating in stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.

"She remains to this day, waiting for the lonely, the ambitious, the clever, the frail, for all those willing to strike a bargain. She never has t wait long. "
-When Water Sang Fire
"You see, some people are born with a piece of night inside, and that holloe plae can never be filled- not with all the good food or sunshine in the world. That emptiness cannot be banished, and so some days we wake up with the feeling of the wind blowing through, and we must simply endure it."
"They pray their children will be brave and clever and strong, that they will tell the true stories instead of the easy ones. They pray for sons with red eyes and daughters with horns."
- Ayama and the Thorn Wood
