The much-anticipated conclusion to the Grisha Trilogy

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.

Hidden away, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and 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 forges new alliances as she and Mal search for Morozova's last amplifier. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that alters 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 future she?s fighting for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Perfect end to my fave story!
Date published: 2016-11-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Somewhat bittersweet (but mostly happy) ending to this trilogy! I'm finally finished the Grisha trilogy. And oh my was it a ride. I loved getting to know Nikolai more, I really grew to love him as a character. I loved Genya and David together and reading more about them, discovering more of their personalities. My heart broke for Genya upon finding out what the King did to her. I loved the strong bond between Alina and the group; the friendship and banter. And Alina has grown to become one of my favourite female characters; I loved her character development. There were plot twists I didn't see but once they were revealed I understood them (even if they did rip my heart out). I basically got what I wanted in terms of how the book concluded and yet I still feel sad for some of the characters and how things concluded. Overall, this was a very satisfying and action-packed, badass, crazy good conclusion to the Grisha trilogy. I love this series!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it! There are rarely series with happy endings nowadays, but this is one of them. It ends well, although it may not be to some readers fancy. All loose ends are tied up though and I think that's a big factor in determining how good a book ends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal! I read this a little while ago and absolutely loved it! It is usually very hard to find an amazing book that ends a trilogy well, however this is not the case with Ruin and Rising! Pick up the trilogy and give it a try, I promise you won't regret it!

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.)
