Ruin and Rising
Ruin and Rising | Leigh Bardugo
The capital has fallen. The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne. Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army. Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives. Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova's amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destructionand claiming it could cost Alina the very future she's fighting for. Ruin and Rising is the thrilling final installment in Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy.

3.7 🌟
Truthfully i stopped reading the series after the 1st book, but i recently picked it up again just so that i could read King of Scars.
It was okay I guess. The revelation of the third amplifier was a bit odd and didn't really fit with the mythical creature thingy. But overall, I love the world building and the magical system.

The conclusion to the series and bittersweet. The build up, the suspense, the race to finish it to see what happens and emptiness in your heart when it concludes. The group of characters must make a final stand against the darkling by finding the last amplifier and missing prince. I come to love the characters, the richly built universe and every twist and turn in the series. Sad for the series to end but Leigh Bardugo has gained a fan for life!

Easily the best of the trilogy. All the set-up in the first 2 books pays off in this conclusion. I enjoyed how Alina finally begins to take control of her own life & power, & how she has to cope w/the trauma she's been through & the sacrifices still to come. It could have been a slower story, but this is fast-paced & fun to read throughout. A few parts caught me off-guard, but I enjoyed it & am looking forward to the next set of books.

This has been the year for me finding some great books! This is the The 3rd book in the series. I loved all of them and will probably reread at some point. I liked how Bardugo ended this series and that it leads into the duology starting with King of Scars. I don't think she could write a book I hated. 5⭐

Shley9225 Make sure to read Six of Crows before King of Scars though!! 4mo
TheSpineView @Shley9225 I have! I read the duology before anything. 4mo
Cailey_Mac This trilogy and duology were my first few books of the year and I‘ve been hard put to find another fantasy that is equally as amazing as this! 4mo

Why did nobody warn me that this one gets terrifying?
@Merethebookgal @kim.guernsey

Merethebookgal Terrifying? I‘ve forgotten a lot of this story at this point, but what I do remember I wouldn‘t consider terrifying...sorry! 4mo
jmtrivera @Merethebookgal Where the Darkling turns Nikolai into a monster? I was like, "NOOOOOOOOOOO!" ?????? 4mo
Merethebookgal @jmtrivera lol okay, that was an unexpected plot twist, but not what I‘d consider terrifying. That‘s a word I‘d reserve for talking about horror novels... which I‘d never read because they‘re terrifying 😂 4mo

jmtrivera @Merethebookgal I don't read horror novels either, because my threshold for terrifying is bad guy sneaking up on the good guys, killing a bunch of them and unexpectedly turning one of the best characters into a monster. 😂😂😂 4mo
Merethebookgal @jmtrivera 🤣🤣🤣🤣 he really is one of the best characters in the whole series! 4mo
Shley9225 @Merethebookgal @jmtrivera “one of the best”? More like THE BEST. He is my favourite character in any book I‘ve ever read lol. And also yes that scene was SO SCARY AND SAAAAD 😭😭 4mo
jmtrivera @Shley9225 I definitely started getting WAY more into the series when he showed up. I'm not happy about this turn of events. ☹ 4mo
kim.guernsey sorry! I didn't realize that qualified as terrifying. I was surprised and upset than terrified. my bad, my bad. I need a @jmtrivera specific chart that color codes levels of fear and terror, please. 4mo
jmtrivera @kim.guernsey 😂😂😂 So my Kindle copy has previews in the back, and I was reading in bed, not thinking I was far enough into the book for terrible things to start happening yet. I'm beginning to wonder if I was just particularly sensitive in my exhausted and surprised state! Or maybe I'll make a chart. Because I am a big baby. 4mo

What a perfect end to one of the best fantasy trilogies I‘ve read in awhile. The fates of The Darkling, The Sun Summoner & her Tracker were so bittersweet, I don‘t think I could‘ve written a better finale. Poor Nikolai. I‘m trying really hard to avoid spoilers, but I love that she gave The Darkling a bit of humanity at the end, it was one of my favourite scenes. Highly recommend. 5⭐️ #MountTBR2019 #Bk19 #Pop19 #BookThatIncludesAWedding

Onto Bk3 in the Grisha trilogy. I don‘t know whether to jump from these to finally finishing the Six Of Crows duology or shake it up with something different. What would you do? More of the Grishaverse or Something Different?🤷🏻‍♀️

I really, really enjoyed this series. This book might have been my least favourite, partially because of Alina's character, wavering between complete powerlessness (the beginning) and having an unnatural, all consuming desire for more and more power, but it still really delivered a great story and great characters - Nikolai is the best, Mal actually isn't the worst, and the Darkling has more scenes - it's the best of all aspects!

Goodreads 24/52

⭐️3/5
Bardugo rounds out the Grisha Verse series well. I was okay with the definite ending, and the final character development. However… if I wasn‘t already in love with the series it probably would have gotten a poorer rating because I had guessed the “big reveal” in the previous book.

I'm often disappointed by endings as definite at this one, but I'm very content with it, which is a huge thumbs up in the authors direction. I also applaud such a memorable villain, I felt more sadness for him than anyone else, living or dead.
I lost some tears in this book but they were very well deserved, Leigh Bardugo once again gave me a reason to love her writing abilities:)
(My favorite book is still Six of Crows though, just so you know...)

hjreviews I wish I would have read this series first because as good as it is, I just keep comparing it to Six of Crows which I love so much more! 7mo
Jeralyn Yes!! I get exactly what you mean, I feel the same way 7mo
Lisaw13 Six of Crows is still my favorite too 😊 7mo

am going to have major book hangover from this one! I really loved this series and will definitely reread later this year. I‘m so happy the ending wasn‘t super cliche and I was SO thrown that Mal was the third amplifier. I love that they got to build their own life back where it all started. I do have to admit though, that my heart broke for the Darkling and I‘m the author notes at the end she said hinted he might now be dead? We‘ll see I hope!
