Project Description

Ruin and Rising

BOOK THREE of the Shadow and Bone 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. 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.

Reviews for Ruin and Rising

“Secondary characters truly come into their own here, particularly the ragtag band of Alina’s Grisha, in whose friendship she finds salvation. 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, STARRED REVIEW ★

“[T]he characters are perfectly imperfect; they question themselves, take risks, and make plenty of mistakes. While The Darkling is a little too similar to Harry Potter’s Voldemort, he is still a delicious combination of evil, cunning, and manipulation. Fans of the two books will not be disappointed.”
– School and Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW ★

“Readers won’t be able to turn the pages fast enough to the conclusion that will generate much discussion.” – Booklist

“With her signature style, Bardugo brings her thrilling Grisha trilogy to a satisfying end that will surprise and delight in equal measures. As they face even more harrowing challenges, Alina, Mal and friends display incredible growth and resilience. The dramatic action, tense romance and fantastic world development work seamlessly to keep the reader invested and feverishly turning pages. Resplendently bold and ambitious, this is an all-consuming and wondrous achievement.” – RT Book Review

“Feminism is the invisible jet powering this literary revamp of the Amazon princess.”
– The New York Times Book Review

“Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy comes to a thunderous conclusion”
– Kirkus Reviews
