BASICALLY THE KING OF SCARS SERIES.
NIKOLAI(in his head): I like Zoya.
Nikolai out loud:I am your king and you are my general.
Zoya(in her head):I like Nikolai.
Zoya out loud:I am your general and you are my King.
Like y’all literally spent an entire series doing that.

i just finished the shadow and bone trilogy, so spoilers ahead!
i really struggled with the first book, because it was kind of slow paced. also, i watched the series first and i liked it so much more tbh. but with siege and storm, things got more interesting, especially with nikolai! omg i adore him! what an amazing character, if for nothing else, i would recommend the books just for him.
somehow, i liked ma*lina much more in the books. i know i'm kinda alone with this opinion, but in the series their relationship was a little overshadowed by the chemistry dark*lina had. book!ma*lina was way cuter, but i'm not sure i like the ending. i know ma*lina was endgame, there was no way it wasn't going to happen, but idk, i may have liked it better if mal had died for real. (sorry, please don't hate me)
i cried when the darkling finally died, because for all his greed and ruthlessness, leigh bardugo managed to still make him human somehow. great writing, she created an amazing villain!
special shout-out to david and genya, who stole my heart with their kiss scene and unusual romance.
i'm off to read six of crows now, i'm so excited!
