King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo Review

I was really trying to not compare this book to Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom, but it was so hard because those were two of my favorite books! I also need to put a disclaimer and say that I have not read the Shadow and Bones series which in hindsight maybe I should have before reading this, since I felt a bit lost throughout the story.

However, I absolutely loved that this story involved Nina and Zoya, and that Nina references numerous times the heist with Kaz and of course, Mathias.

Additionally, I loved the story of Nikolai, I really want to read more of what will happen to him next! He was a very interesting character, especially for a king! and the dynamic between him and Zoya!! Yes pleaseee, I need more!

Overall, it was a great story and a great ending! I just think I need to brush up on my knowledge of the Grishaverse.

Nikolai Lantsov has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war—and he intends to keep it that way. Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, the young king must find a way to refill Ravka’s coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army.

Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha Squaller, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried—and some wounds aren’t meant to heal.
