Mini Review~Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo


About the book:

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.

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

My thoughts:

I had been waiting for the library to get Ruin and Rising for me as I requested it as soon as I had finished Siege and Storm. Needless to say, I started it as soon as I got it!

Ruin and Rising is the conclusion to the Grisha trilogy and it was an epic finisher. I a obsessed with the world of the Grisha and absolutely loved being able to immerse myself in their world again!

I can’t discuss these books without wanting to tell you EVERYTHING, but spoilers.So, NO! It is safe to say that these books are amazing though. Packed full of action, with such a great cast of characters, it is easy to get lost between the pages. Not since Harry Potter has a book captured my imagination so much!

Ruin and Rising was definitely a perfect end to the series and I may have even teared up a little. It was quite an emotional read after following these characters throughout their respective journeys in the series. I felt bereft when I finished it, but in a good way if that makes sense?! It was a satisfying end to the trilogy!

I will definitely be re-reading these books again! If you like YA, then I would definitely recommend this series. Its just so captivating, and fun! I’m going to continue my exploration of the Grishaverse with Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom when I have time to read them!

Highly recommended!

  1. I am so glad you enjoyed this so much! 🙂 In my opinion the Six of Crows duology is infinitely better than the Grisha series, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did if you end up reading them. 🙂 Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous review! ❤
