Ruin and Rising Book Review

Ruin and Rising is the final book in the Shadow and Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo.

BLURB

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.

REVIEW

This was another well written book and it was paced very well. The events that happened in the book were interesting and I connected a bit better with the characters at the ending.

Alina does gain confidence in herself in the end and I enjoyed that the allusion that Alina and Mal end up together in the year.

I’m interested in the Six of Crows Duology ancestors hope that I connect more to the characters in those books.

2.5/5 stars
