Before he ruled Ravka, before he was the Darkling, he was just a lonely boy with an extraordinary gift. In this prequel story to the New York Times-bestselling Grisha Trilogy, Leigh Bardugo takes us into Ravka's mysterious past, when Grisha lived as fugitives and the Darkling took his first steps on the path to power. Discover new territory in the Grishaverse, as well as two chapters from the soon-to-be-released Six of Crows.
Darkling is probably my favorite character. Leigh created all those incredible characters in Grisha World but still he is the most complex and intriguing character. And The Demon in the Wood was a little insight of his long life. He wanted to create a safe place for them🖤 We need more Darkling just saying🤞🏻
The Darkling is the kind of villain that the more you learn about him you like him more, but at the same time you still want to kill him. Personally this is the best type of villain.
