Shadow and Bone is the first book in the Grisha Trilogy, and I'm pleased to say I finally got around to reading it! I'm only a few years behind the times here...
I admit, it took me a while to get into this. As I read, and began to focus and really fall into this book, everything seemed to fall in place. I discovered this is amazing!

Overall, I'm giving this a 4.5/5. I think my issues with it are because I've read about 10 books along the same lines recently. This might've been the best of the lot of them.
How to Save an Undead Life is the first book in the Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy series. It drops us in to a world where magic, as well as vampires and necromancers, definitely exist. It was a good read, and one I didn’t regret picking up at all. Especially since it was on Kindle Unlimited.
