Ruin and Rising Leigh Bardugo read online review & book description:

See the Grishaverse come to life on screen with Shadow and Bone, now a Netflix original series.

Enter the Grishaverse with Book Three of the Shadow and Bone Trilogy by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom.

Soldier. Summoner. Saint.The nation’s fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.

The Darkling rules from his shadow throne while a weakened Alina Starkov recovers from their battle under the dubious protection of the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Now her hopes lie with the magic of a long-vanished ancient creature and the chance that an outlaw prince still survives.

As her allies and enemies race toward war, only Alina stands between her country and a rising tide of darkness that could destroy the world. To win this fight, she must seize a legend’s power—but claiming the firebird may be her ruin.

  • Great series...

    By SomLed
    Overall series (the first two books especially) were awesome. The characters and the plot were both developed so well I had a hard time putting the book down. However the last book didn’t turn out as I wanted and expected. I was disappointed that it didn’t seem as well thought out and written as the rest of the book. I would still recommend it, and overall it was a great read and a thrilling ride.

    So here’s the dealio, I had finished of what is so far the shatter me series and have been in a mourning period for the my wait until the next book for that series. Then I search on websites books similar to the shatter me series. And this series isn’t really like the shatter me series, BUT IT IS GOOD. no... IT IS AMAZING. I read it in 2 days (obsessed). I made me cry and want MORE. Just the characters are so well thought out and amazing.
  • And it goes out on a whimper

    By ashj555
    This was a really promising series all the way until the end. The ending was so mundane and bad that it basically negates the rest of the book. Why do authors struggle so much with endings? I’m very disappointed to say the least.
  • I hate the ending
