about

Enter the Grishaverse with Book Three of the Shadow and Bone Trilogy by the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom.

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

The Darkling rules from his shadow throne while a weakened Alina Starkov recovers from their battle under the dubious protection of the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Now her hopes lie with the magic of a long-vanished ancient creature and the chance that an outlaw prince still survives.

As her allies and enemies race toward war, only Alina stands between her country and a rising tide of darkness that could destroy the world. To win this fight, she must seize a legend's power-but claiming the firebird may be her ruin.

Editorial Reviews

"The magic Bardugo invents will surprise and delight readers." -The Horn Book"Readers won't be able to turn the pages fast enough to the conclusion that will generate much discussion." -Booklist"Once again, Bardugo is a master at building an action-packed fantasy with extraordinary world-building and complex characters . . . 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. . . Every time readers may think she's written herself into a corner, Bardugo pulls off a twist that, while surprising, will keep them turning pages furiously." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review"Mesmerizing. . . . Bardugo's set up is shiver-inducing, of the delicious variety. This is what fantasy is for." -The New York Times Book Review on Shadow and Bone"This is one book series you want to get hooked on." -Seventeen.com on Shadow and Bone"Shadow and Bone was unlike anything I've ever read. Alina is a clever, sympathetic character I will gladly follow into the next installment--which can't come soon enough!" -Veronica Roth, New York Times bestselling author of Divergent on Shadow and Bone"This is just my kind of fantasy--rich, satisfying, and gorgeous, laced with heart-pounding action and pitch-perfect romance. The characters . . . are layered and complex. I'll be thinking about it for a good long time." -Cinda Williams Chima, bestselling author on Shadow and Bone"* Fast-paced and unpredictable, this debut novel will be a hit with readers who love dark fantasy. . . .
