Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
The Grisha, book 1
Alina and Mal have always been together -- as small children in the orphanage and then as draftees in the army. That all changes when Alina somehow saves everyone by summoning sunlight while trying to cross the Fold. She is whisked off to become a Grisha. She is the one who will be able to finally destroy the Fold and end war for her country.
I have been hearing rave reviews about this book for years. I don't know why I never picked it up until now. I'm sorry I waited. This book was great. I loved it. Even though there was a lot of intrigue and story going on it was still a very quick read. I can't wait to read book two.
