Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo Review

“You will always be one of us.”

Ruin and Rising was by far my favorite book in this series. More action packed than the others, more tears shed, more laughs had.

I really and truly became attached to so many of the characters in this series. This book though made me question everything. Were these people loyal? Were they trustworthy? Who was going to switch sides? I grieved the loss of some characters. I literally screamed at some points. It felt good to feel though. Not every book can get to you that way.

My overall rating of the series as a whole would be 4 stars. Simply because book 2 wasn’t that wonderful but if you like fantasy and having powers and good versus evil, then I think you would enjoy this series.

Synopsis (Credit: Goodreads)

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.
