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.
I’m pretty sure that a HUGE portion of today’s WoW posts will be dedicated to Ruin and Rising, seeing as how the cover was just revealed. (And holy WOW that cover. I mean seriously.) But even knowing that it’d probably be a popular choice today, I couldn’t not pick it. I COULDN’T NOT. I JUST. I am so excited for this conclusion, you guys. I don’t even. I adored the first two books, and just… this worldbuilding is incredible, and I am in love with ALL THE CHARACTERS (but Sturmhond especially)–NO, ALL OF THEM (Sturmhond), and just… everything. Everything.
Okay I’m getting incoherent now.
Just do me a favor – if you haven’t picked up this series yet, DO IT NOW. …Go ahead, I can wait.
What book are YOU anxiously awaiting today?
Link me to your WoW post and I’ll be sure to stop by! :)
