Hey, everyone, and welcome to this week’s Book Review Tuesday!
This post concludes my reviews of the Grishaverse (See 7/3/18 and 7/24/18 for books 1 & 2). And boy, this was a spectacular end to an incredible series. I was, for lack of better words, shook. S H O O K. (Or, as some of my classmates might say, “severely shooketh”.)
So, prepare yourself for feels aplently, and enjoy this week’s review!
Ruin and Rising
The nation of Ravka is in greater danger than ever before. The Darkling’s shadowy fist has clenched ever harder onto the kingdom, and the Shadow Fold grows larger with every day that passes. And the future lies in the hands of Sankta Alina, the Sun Summoner.
Beaten, bruised, and in hiding, Alina must now find the Firebird, the last amplifier, in order to defeat the Darkling. Alongside the tracker Mal and the remains of the Second Army, she must find a way to slip through the grasp of the Darkling, and find the amplifier in time. But as they embark on their quest, Alina and her newfound band soon realize that what appeared to be obvious is anything but what they thought it was. Time is running out, and every second that the Darkling retains power is a second closer to the end of their country as they know it…
OH. MY. GOD. BEST BOOK IN THE WHOLE TRILOGY. ELEVEN OUT OF TEN. JEEEEEEEEESUS. THE FEELS…
The beautiful writing, the astounding world-building, the oh-so-lovable characters, and everything else in between were back with the volume on full blast. This final installment packed a real punch, and truly ended the series with an earth-shattering bang. Right. In. The. Feels.
Overall, the Grisha Trilogy is like no other, and is an essential for all YA fantasy fans-and just fantasy fans, period. I gurantee that you will not be disappointed.
I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day, and keep on reading! If you want, let me know what you think of this book in the comments! 🙂
