Ruin and Rising – Leigh Bardugo

Title: Ruin and Rising (The Shadow and Bone Trilogy #3)
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co
Genre: Young Adult/Fantasy
Page Length: 369 pages

During this strange time in all our lives, I am taking the opportunity to get some reading done.

Ruin and Rising, is the final chapter to the Shadow and Bone series. It was a grand finale and while it did not end the way my poetic heart wanted, it did have a satisfying ending for most readers.

Bardugo wraps up the storyline concisely, and the characters make a full circle. If you are a young adult, fantasy junky like me, then I feel you will enjoy this series as much as I did.

You can find the book/series on Amazon in multiple formats.

Synopsis: 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.
