Ruin and Risingby Leigh Bardugo
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.

Ratings and Reviews from the Librarians
Bekka rated it ★★★★ and said, “Excellent ending to a really good trilogy! I really enjoyed the ending; I think it was the perfect way to resolve that particular story line. The book really summed everything up nicely, and for me at least, it was a very satisfying read. I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys the fantasy/supernatural genres, and to those who like action and adventure mixed with some nice romance.”
Miranda rated it ★★★★ and said, “What a great ending! Lots of peril and loss, but that’s how life works.”
