Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB; choose sentences at random from your current read. Identify the author and title for readers.

Shadow and Bone
"The servants called them malenchki, little ghosts, because they were the smallest and the youngest, and because they haunted the Duke's house like giggling phantoms, darting in and out of rooms, hiding in cupboards to eavesdrop, sneaking into the kitchen to steal the last of the summer peaches." (page 1; from an advanced reader's edition; final copy may differ).
Title:Shadow and Bone: Grisha Trilogy

Book description:
Alina Starkov, orphaned by the Border Wars, relies on her best friend and fellow refugee, Mal. Drafted into the army of their war-torn homeland, they’re sent on a dangerous mission into the Fold, a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh.

Alina reveals a dormant power no one knew existed. She is whisked away to the royal court to become a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling. He believes she is one person with the power to destroy the Fold.
