Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, 358 pages, read by Leslie, on 06/06/2013

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)

Orphaned by the Border Wars, Alina Starkov is taken from obscurity and her only friend, Mal, to become the protegé of the mysterious Darkling, who trains her to join the magical elite in the belief that she is the Sun Summoner, who can destroy the monsters of the Fold.

The book was enjoyable, teen has a deeply buried power that she doesn’t realize she has.  She is the only one who can save her country but can she overcome the evil guy trying to enslave her power for herself while learning she is really in love with her best friend?  A different twist  to the normal teen angst line, a little predictable, but teens will most likely love it if they enjoy this genre.
