““It is always the same trap,” she said gently. “You longed for conversation. The bear craved jokes. The gray wolf missed music. The boar just wanted someone to tell her troubles to. The trap is loneliness, and none of us escapes it. Not even me.””
What did I think about the book?
I loved this novella!! I sure did. You can read this without having read The Grisha series. I mostly read them in order, but it is a nice addition to the story.
This is a folk tale about a fox who can outsmart everyone, and so stays alive. But has he found his match? A folk tale with a dark twist. I love Leigh’s writing style and I love how her stories always have a dark twist to them. So a folk tale with a dark twist and an ending with a traditional folk tale morale in it.
A short story where you’ll see the moral in the end, but where the journey to get to that moral is thrilling and exciting to read, with the famous dark Bardugo-twist.
I’ll just say it again, I love it!!
