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 destruction--and 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.
I could not stop reading this wonderful closer to one of the best series I have read in quite a while. Leigh Bardugo has such a talent at making each of her characters real and distinct and you grow so attached to them with their charm and wit. I love Alina as a protagonist who battles very human struggles while also carrying the weight of the world. Alina's friends are fantastic and make the story so powerful. I am so happy with how she ended the book and provided a compelling and satisfying resolution. Fantastic book.
Some stories you forget when you grow up, but some stay with you forever. I know I'll remember every page of this beautiful book as long as I live.
And that was how it all ended, guys.
If you aren't prepared to be angered, excited, frustrated, gloriously sated from the ending of this novel - then steady yourself. You're on for a bumpy ride. Good luck and enjoy.
