Review: Ruin and Rising
By Leigh Bardugo
Genre YA Fantasy
The final battle between Alina and the Darkling is looming but Alina is struggling with her power and without the the Firebird she doesn't have a chance. Can she and her band of alliances find the third amplifier in time?
I stood on a carved stone balcony, arms spread, shivering in my cheap robes, and tried to put on a good show.
I'm so glad I finally read this series. Sometimes people rave about a book or series and when I finally pick it up I can't figure out what the hell they see in it. Luckily all the raving was well warranted.
This book in particular blew me away. I talked in my reviews of the other books in this series about them following the usual fantasy recipe. This one had its moments but it took turns I totally didn't see coming.
Once again it made me FEEL so much. I love when a book can influence my feelings like that...even when it influences them to anger. Love it!
I wasn't so sure about the ending for a few moments but then I just melted. I loved the ending! It was perfect and just what needed to happen. I loved it.
Great series! If you haven't picked it up yet, do so. It's worth it!
