Winter 2020 (December);

This is first audiobook arc courtesy of MacMillian audio through Netgalley, and I was so delighted to be granted permission to read and review Bardugo's book of myths that exist adjacent to her own fictional worlds. I madly loved every myth for every saint herein, and on Bardugo's work alone this rating would have been 5 stars.

Alas, the female narrator for the stories has a very hard almost-lisp on each of her "s" sounds and I kept wincing all the way through at each new word with one in it. After this experience with her for half of the few hours of this novella, I would not pursue listening to other pieces she narrated.

(But I will continue to read everything that is ever published by Bardugo!) ( )

I was pretty excited when I saw the announcement for this book and I would have loved to have it in my collection but unfortunately, I can’t afford it right now so I had to settle for reading the ebook from my library.

After listening to a glimpse of the Shadow and Bone tv show’s score yesterday, I was feeling a little nostalgic, so it was nice to be back in the Grishaverse. The stories of the Saints in this book are just little incidents of their miracles in life and while they were interesting to read, I don’t think I would remember most of them. It was still a joy when familiar names of places or characters showed up. But as with many dark fairytales, most of these stories end in brutal ways for the Saints despite their benevolence because it’s human nature to misunderstand people and their good actions while they are alive, but revere the same ones after they are dead. So, this did end up being sad and bittersweet on many occasions. However, the illustrations for each of the Saints are beautiful and I’m sure they’ll look even lovelier in person. Hopefully I’ll get to buy it someday soon.

Overall, this book is perfect for you if you are missing the Grishaverse and want to delve into it again, and have a little time to indulge. Here’s hoping it’ll satisfy me till we atleast get the trailer of the show. ( )

I really enjoyed this audiobook. I loved the utilization of both a male and female narrator for the various male or female Saints. I think it added a bit of depth seeing as how this book is much like a history book, and oftentimes those can get a bit stodgy feeling. But the idea of these Lives or their mythology really works well with the audiobook medium in adding that extra layer of oral history to everything which, taking this context as real, you would assume would be the way these Saints' lives/stories would be passed along.

I applaud Leigh Bardugo, although really no one should be surprised, that she's able to pack so much into each snippet of each Saint's life. You get a couple dozen, plus, short stories that are very fully realized. I think it's just awesome how expanded this world Leigh Bardugo has created has become, yet I don't feel overwhelmed by the ever-growing Grishaverse. Instead, I want to marvel in it and keep soaking it all in.

It's a quick read/listen which I appreciate to break up the larger tomes that I often find myself engaged in reading. I believe that the physical book contains illustrations which I'm also eager to check out, and I like that there are so many options for these stories whether it's through audio, or physical book, or illustration or even through reference from the various full-length books/series set in this world.

‘’There have been too many stories in between, miracles and martyrdoms, too much blood spilt, too much ink. There was a war. There were a thousand wars. I knew a killer. I knew a hero. They might have been the same man.’’

Leigh Bardugo opens one more portal to the exciting universe of the Grishaverse. This is The Istorii Sankt’ya, the Lives of Saints, created by Alina Starkov, narrating the tales of saints. Stories of beauty and death, violence and injustice, mercy and divine providence. Stories of heroines and heroes, of the violent mob and cunning demons.

Sankta Margaretha, the patron saint of thieves and lost children, who saved her people from a demon with the help of her beautiful jewels.
Sankta Anastasia, the patron saint of the sick, who saved her people with the drops of her own blood.
Sankt Kho, the patron saint of good intentions, and Sankta Neyar, the protector of blacksmiths.
Sankt Juris, the patron saint of the battle-weary, who protected the faithful soldiers from cold and starvation, with amaranth as his symbol.
Sankta Vasilka, the patron saint of unwed women.
Sankt Nikolai, the patron saint of sailors and lost causes.
Sankt Maradi, the protector of impossible love.
Sankt Demyan, the patron saint of the newly dead.
Sankta Mariya, the patron saint of those who are far from home.
Sankt Emerens, the patron saint of brewers and protector of the harvest.
Sankt Vladimir, the patron saint of the drowned and of unlikely achievements.
Sankt Grigori, the protector of doctors and musicians.
Sankt Valentin, the patron saint of snake charmers and the lonely.

‘’You can choose faith or you can choose fear. But only one will bring you what you long for.’’

Sankt Petyr, the patron saint of archers.
Sankta Yeryin, the protector of hospitality.
Sankt Feliks, the protector of horticulture.
Sankt Lukin, the patron saint of politicians.

‘’I will die in the woods, a free woman in the company of the trees. Better than the pyre.’’

Sankta Magda, the patron saint of abandoned women, and bakers.
Sankt Egmond, the protector of architects.
Sankta Ursula, the patron saint of those lost at sea.
Sankt Mattheus, the patron saint of those who love and care for animals.

‘’The orphans came to this magnificent place covered in dirt and lice, and those from the border towns arrived with ghosts in tow - memories of raids in the night, homes set to the torch, mothers and fathers gone suddenly silent and cold.’’
Sankt Dimitri, the patron saint of scholars.
Sankt Gerasim, the patron saint of artists.
Sankta Alina, the patron saint of orphans and those with undiscovered gifts.
...and the Starless One, the mysterious, shadowy saint of the ones who seek salvation in the darkness.

‘’I wander now, lost among the shelves. My hand cramps around the pen. I gather dust. But someone has to set down the words, put them in the proper order. I am the library and the librarian, hoarding lives, a catalog for the faithful. Erase my name. Indelible is a word for stories.’’
