Publisher's Summary

A 2023 Audie Award winner!

A 2023 Odyssey Honors title!

“This is no ordinary audiobook, but rather a graphic novel for the ears. Readers will be delighted by the auditory magic of this book.”—Booklist

"A full cast of talented narrators taps into the darkly magical atmosphere of Bardugo's graphic novel prequel to the Shadow and Bone trilogy. Primary narrator Ben Barnes depicts the villainous Darkling when he was known as Eryk, a young teen who hungered for companionship and stability. An evocative soundscape, incorporating everything from the clip-clopping of horses' hooves to the sounds of the night, further enhances this spellbinding audio."—AudioFile Magazine (Earphones Award Winner)

See the Grishaverse come to life on screen with the Netflix series, Shadow and Bone—Season 2 premiering March 16, 2023! Discover the origin story of the Darkling in this first-ever Grishaverse graphic novel.

Discover the origin story of the Darkling in this full-cast, first-ever Grishaverse graphic audiobook.

Before he led Ravka’s Second Army, before he created the Fold, and long before he became the Darkling, he was just a lonely boy burdened by an extraordinary power. 

Eryk and his mother, Lena, have spent their lives on the run. But they will never find a safe haven. They are not only Grisha—they are the deadliest and rarest of their kind. Feared by those who wish to destroy them and hunted by those who would exploit their gifts, they must hide their true abilities wherever they go. But sometimes deadly secrets have a way of revealing themselves.

Astonished

This was not just listening to words on a page, it was full of ambiance and immersion that brought everything together. What an interesting backstory for the mysterious Darkling. Plus, Ben Barnes speaks into your ear for an hour so it just can't get better.
