Description

The capital has fallen. The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.

Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.

Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.

Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova's amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction - and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for. Ruin and Rising is the thrilling final installment in Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy.

I wish there was more!!

This series was excellently done! I am sad to see it end, but it was the right ending for these characters. Now to go sob because theres not more. 😥

A More Than Decent Conclusion

This culmination of the Civil War in the Kingdom of Ravka is satisfying. Alina's desperate party hunts for the final Amplifier, the remnants of the rebellion gather, and the Darkling's power-hungry actions are fleshed out. By the time we reach the climactic final battle, the tension is palpable. The War and the dénouement are cleverly concluded.
I'm not certain if the principle characters have matured or if it's just that Bardugo's writing has done so: dialogue is more realistic in this installment, characters act like adults, and there is clever (as opposed to painful) banter among the individuals - some sarcasm is actually laugh-out-loud witty.
That said, there are some notable problems with this book: Bardugo starts quite slowly, for example. The first two novels broke the story up into segments (lots of battle - a slow middle segment - then an active climax). In 'Shadow and Bone' she filled the middle segment with world-building and elaborating her magic system - which worked very well. In 'Seige and Storm' she filled it with character development - which wasn't as effective (too much teenage angst/romance). In this one, she drops that pattern - electing to try a slow-build from the start - but adds action fairly early in the middle segment. The result is mixed (maintained interest but inconsistent pacing).
Bardugo also focusses fairly heavily on the spiritual aspects of the Saint Alina/Sun Summoner mythos and the magical powers/ personal history behind the third Amplifier. It explains some motivations but feels overly metaphysical. I wish the author had stuck more to a plot-driven, action-oriented tale.

Lauren Fortang's reading is improved in this installment (relative to the second book). She delivers better emotion and less sharp "s"s, for example.. but some of her chosen character voices are still straight-up annoying (the Apparat voice is cringeworthy every time he 'speaks'). Her pronunciation of difficult names, use of accurate Eastern European accents, and committment to easily recognizable character voices is impressive. Altogether, the performance is decent but nothing special. Once again, I had to increase the recording speed to 1.20X to get the right pacing.

In summary, this book is worth 4 stars. In fact, the entire series does a good job transcending the YA Fantasy pattern. This Grishaverse is most entertaining. On to 'King Of Scars'..

An alright ending to a good story

Again, I think Fortgang needs to be commended for her excellent performance, and I enjoy Bardugo’s creative universe. However, I found this book instalment to be the least engaging.

Spoilers ahead:

I also didn’t like how, after all of her work to learn of and control her power, Alina loses it all. Rather anticlimactic and disappointing.

But, counter to many other complaints I have been reading, I actually liked that Mal was Alina’s one, true love. I think people were projecting their own attraction preferences onto the story in saying they thought Nikolai should have ended up with Alina.

witty banter queen

I took a break from this series and never found time to read this last one so I finally gave up on actually reading it and just got the audiobook and I'm SO glad I did. the narrator was fantastic and I forgot how much I love leigh bardugos writing! she is a queen at inserting witty banter and making me laugh when all seems lost in her worlds.

Bleh

I tried to enjoy the characters but couldn’t care less what happened to them in the end. The Darkling and Nikolai who brought a spark to the book were far and in between.

Heartbreaking in the best possible way...

I had read the books years ago, and decided to listen to the audio books now, as well, as a way to become reinvested in this amazing story before delving into Leigh Bardugo's new book, "King of Scars." And I am so very glad I have.
One day I read a random blurb from a random book titled Shadow and Bone when I was perusing the aisles of a small bookstore, and I bought the book on a whim. I had never heard of the series, or even the author for that matter. Now, however, I consider Shadow and Bone to be the book that sparked this need inside of me to read all the time. After I read Shadow and Bone, I went on to read 60 books in just over two months. And I haven't slowed much since. That is thanks to Leigh Bardugo and this beautiful world she created.
I experienced elated devastation when I finished reading the series, but I got to experience it anew with the audiobooks. The narrator, Lauren Fortgang, is a favorite of mine anyway, but I truly don't think anyone else could have come close to her perfection in regards to this series. Her ability to project the kind of feeling and emotion necessary for a story like this is second to none. It wasn't just the story that had me in tears, but the depth of Lauren's ability to make me feel how the characters felt. Alina Starkov needed Lauren's voice to tell her story. And now that I am about to listen to Nikolai's story, I am-thanks to Lauren's amazing talent- firmly reconnected to this world of Grisha that began my obsession with all things magic. I couldn't be happier in this moment.

Weak "heroine"

A series about a selfish girl who continuously chooses the life of a boy over the fate of the world.

The narrators voice..

The narrators voice was so distracting her lisp?? Or just the way her voice ends a word. I couldn't handle it. I cringe through.. skipping ahead just to know the conclusion. It wasn't as prominent in the earlier books. The story was good but I was more just distracted.

author growth

for me Leigh grow a lot from the first 2 books I couldn't see how the person who wrote those wrote six of crows but it shows in this one not a lot and definitely not as good but its there that's why I gave it a 4 star
im so conflicted about the plot can't tell if I like it or hate it so many questions unanswered it felt rushed at the end after being slow for two and a half books
