Ruin and Rising

by Leigh Bardugo

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR) | June 17, 2014 | Hardcover

Ruin and Rising is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best one in the trilogy Alina is on a quest to find the firebird to destroy the Fold and the Darkling once and for all. As the Sun Summoner, she has powers the Darkling has and is afraid to use it. Her quest gets her deeper and deeper into the Darkling's mind causing her to become more aware of him and his powers. In this epic conclusion, find out if Alina has what it takes to bring Ravka back from the Darkling's true clutches. I almost forgot most of the characters in this book so I had trouble remembering who was who. But with the recaptains posts I was brought up to date and remembering what happened came back. So thank you ladies for that post. There's a rare occurrence that happened to me in this book. I didn't care which boy Alina would end up with because in some form I liked them all. They were all so different and likable. Even the fact that some were more so evil than others, I still liked the Darkling. He has such a fascinating history and I would love nothing more than to read his back story. I felt some spark for all three of them and I just wanted her to pick them all. The feels were all felt in this one. And when I say feels, I meant tears. I teared in this one because of the raw emotion I felt reading it. Oh that scene.. Bless my heart, I had to take a moment to bask in my emotions. Ahhhh. And did I mention that Leigh brought all the punches and turns and twists? Yep she did, and brought you to the brink. She also ended it so beautifully. I don't think I'd change a thing about this book because it had perfect pacing, tone, plot and character development. Overall, you NEED to get on this trilogy if you haven't read it yet. A beautiful, heart breaking and wonderful ending, I will gladly re-read this series over and over again. Truly one of my favourite fantasy series' of all time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The end. I think this is the best book in the trilogy, to be honest. I love how far Alina has come in these books. I wish the story would never end. There's a unexpected event that happens and it shocked me. I didn't expect that at all. (My favourite part though is the end when everything gets resolved and everything is right.)

Fans of the first two books will not be disappointed." - School Library Journal "Triumphant . . If opener Shadow and Bone was a magical coming-of-age story and middle-volume Siege and Storm was a policial thriller, then this third book is an epic quest. . .
