Ruin And Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Soldier, Summoner, Saint.

“The nations 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 legends power, but claiming the firebird may be her ruin.”

This is the last book in the series and is so good! It has more emotion than the other two and literally made me bawl on chapter 11 and the last two chapters. And it almost made me cry again when I finished, as I was so sad to be done with this series (And books rarely make me cry). It is only a three book series so it is a shorter series but I became really attached to the characters and I am so sad to see this series come to an end. When I read the first book I was seeing a lot of negative reviews for this series and It almost made me stop reading the book, before I realized that I may as well try it and what would it hurt if it wasn’t any good? Now I am so glad I continued reading this series because this world is so beautiful and was an amazing escape from the stresses of life. I definetly recommend this series if you like books with magic and strong feminine characters. Thank you so much Leigh Bardugo for bringing this wonderful world to life! A perfect finish to this series I am giving this one 5/5😁 and i would recommend ages 14+ just because there are a lot of heavy subjects.

Here are some places you can find it;

Have a great day and happy reading!
