Ruin And Rising


RUIN AND RISING is the final book in The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. Main characters Alina and Mal continue to search for the remaining amplifier, the firebird, to increase Alina's power as the Sun Summoner. But, in the meantime, she has to deal with a group of zealots who worship her as a saint. Alina feels she's nothing of the kind, that she's just a girl on a mission to defeat the Darkling and protect Ravka from further destruction. Alina doesn't want more lives lost. She must prove to her people and her friends that she can save Ravka. But in her way stand new foes and allies, including her own feelings for the Darkling and Mal. Alina must figure out her own destiny, which could lead her either on a path of ruin or rising.
