Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
Hello I’m Josy, I love to read and I’m very opinionated when it comes to books. I read all books from Historical to Fiction.
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo is the third and last book in the “Grisha Trilogy” released on June 3, 2014. It is a young adult fantasy novel that hit the New York Times bestseller list. This book continues after Siege and Storm.
The capital has fallen and The Darkling, king of Ravka, rules all. Alina the Sun Summoner, the second army, and friends barely escape to an ancient network of tunnels and caverns with the help of the Apparat and the zealots.
Now Summoner lies weak and powerless, trapped by those who want to help her. She must form new alliances and find the last of Morozova’s amplifiers with the help of a disgraced tracker, her life long best friend. In order to regain her strength, the firebird amplifier is the key to her power and to saving Ravka from ruin and destruction.
The characters in this book are memorable and seeing this chapter of their stories’ end is stirring. The pacing of the book is slightly slow and can be monotonous. Although it is not my favorite book in the series, I sincerely think it is a great ending to a great story.
