Shadow and Bone
Author
Leigh Bardugo
Review
Alina is a young orphan that originally resides in the army as a scrawny, weak, and relatively untalented mapmaker. On her first trip through the dangerous Fold, she is attacked by the monsters that live there and an untapped power is released from within herself to saved her loved ones from the monsters evil clutches. (The most important one she wants to save being love interest Mal, her childhood friend that's a bit of a player).
After this incident occurs, she is taken to join the Grisha as the Sun Summoner, this is what the story is mostly featured around, how she changes and becomes accustomed to the new palace life, along with her actual being able to hone her abilities without relying on others too much.
With a somewhat predictable plot line and fairly decent character development this story is unique in its own right.
I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a good and relatively quick read (although its 356 pages, it reads quick,) especially if one is interested in the fantasy/action genres.  Find it in the catalog!

Independent Study is the second novel in the highly acclaimed Testing trilogy. At this point, the main character, Malencia Vale, has completed all entrance exams to the University and must now take on the responsibilities as a student. However, she soon discovers that due to her past tests and actions, University officials believe she is a threat and continuously attempt to eliminate her.
