The Demon in the Wood is the prequel of the series The Grisha. It features The Darkling as a child and it basically shows us what his life was like and it also gives us an idea why he turned out to be the man that he did.
In this book the writer shows us the first time The Darkling’s trust was broken as well as the first time he used The Cut and killed someone. We read about the surcumstances he had to live in because of his power and how it all made him feel.
It was a nice book, but I was kind of disappointed, because I expected more. It was a really short book, I think it was the size of one chapter. I did however like to see more of The Darkling and what his life was like before he decided to become The Darkling.
What I liked the most about this book would be that you can see a lot of The Darkling’s characteristics in the younger version of him, which is kind of nice if you like The Darkling as much as I do.
What I disliked most was that it was so short and that I would have liked more detail. A lot of The Grisha fans crave to know more about him, I would personally have liked to read about when he just became a young man (but this is just my opininion).
I would recommend this to any fans of the series The Grisha and especially those of you who liked The Darkling and wanted to know more about him. I would not recommend it to people who don’t like the series The Grisha or who don’t like The Darkling
I didn’t find any obvious grammar mistakes and therefore I believe it was professionally edited.
I rate The Demon in the Wood by Leigh Bardugo 4 out of 5 stars. I would have given a 5 but, I just wasn’t satisfied. I did however rate it 4 out of 5, because the writing is still good.
