“Start building walls, and people begin to wonder what you’re hiding.”

What did I think of the book?

I loved to read the story of the Darkling, before he was the Darkling, but just a little boy. A boy who is troubled, lives with his mother and doesn’t have an easy life.

His life wasn’t easy when he was young. The Grisha were hunted, abominations and a danger in those days. He and his mother had to hide. But like my favourite quotes says, they had to hide in plain sight. Truly hiding makes people curious to what is hidden.

His mothers warning was an important one. “Never let them touch you.” That was enough for people to see what he is, a Grisha, a weapon, a danger. He thought he could have friend, but it’s clear to see how the little boy became the Darkling. Even at a young age, his so called ‘friend’ tried to use him and kill him. So he had to make a difficult choice. A choic that made the first dark spot on his heart appear. The beginning of the Darkling.

I’ve always had a soft spot for him, he’s not completely the bad guy he pretends to be. Yes, he can be truly evil, but he can be human too. This novella just made the soft spot for him bigger^^
