Amazing. Lovely. One that demands to be read again and again. The entire book is gorgeous, from Jim Di Bartolo's cover and inside illustrations to Laini Taylor's prose. I could go on and on about how much I love this book.

All three stories are compelling, imaginative, atmospheric, and like nothing that I've read before. Of all three, Hatchling is the longest and while I was satisfied with the story as it was, I can see (and hope) that there's more to tell about the Druj.

This is one of those rare books where I felt like I needed to re-read each sentence, just to listen to the melody of the words. But on top of that, the illustrations! And how they fit so seamlessly with Laini's stories! I could look at them forever. Each of the three stories begins with several pages of artwork. Jim Di Bartolo used this section to illustrate the back story of a woman from a previous generation in each story. So the artwork at the beginning gives a hint of what the story is about, and as I read the story it was addictive to look back at the illustrations as each chunk of the puzzle came into place. Genius design. I only hope we can see more illustrated novels like this in the future. Beautiful.
