“Zoya of the lost city. Zoya of the garden. Zoya bleeding in the snow. You are strong enough to survive the fall.”

Ok, I’m obsessed. I wasn’t sure how to feel about this arrangement of POVS, but I loved all of them so much. I already loved Nina because of Six of Crows, and it was so great to spend more time with her, even if it was also so so sad to see the pain she was in. Nikolai is always an icon, but it was interesting and again, so sad, to hear more about his childhood and his personality under the mask. But Zoya was really the biggest revelation for me. Zoya’s ferocity was so satisfying to read about, especially in the context of her past and the way she tried to come to terms with the Darkling’s abuse. In my dreams, Shadow and Bone would continue until season 6, so we could see this storyline play out on screen.
