It's just sort of... Okay I guess. That's how it feels.

Why aren't we following Nikolai of this series is titled after him? You dump heaps of side characters on me but don't bother beefing up the mains? Aight.

Definitely for the fans but if you're not a fan, it's a middle of the road read. Pure fanservice with no contribution to the plot. If you want fanservice, here it is!

I've seen people say this is a C or C- book and that really fits it.

2.5 stars. ( )

Satisfying conclusion to the Grishaverse (though more stories are always welcome.) Many characters from the Grishaverse have cameos.

The queer content in these books has gotten much, much better. Most of my complaints about this in the first trilogy have been answered. I do like how the queerness in this universe exlplicitly exists and is normalized. The closest we get to a coming out story is about a transman becoming himself. ( )

I just didn't like the ending, I mean sure it's all happy go lucky and also conveniently sets up another set of books but it is just way too and I mean way too unrealistic in the fjerdan side of things in my opinion. If the ending would have been better this book would have been amazing ( )

'The Continuing Saga of Amanda Read All 9 Grishaverse Books in 26 Days'
(This review will span King of Scars & Rule of Wolves.)


This is for the last two books (for now) of the Grishaverse. I really, really, madly adored getting to shift back to the more centralized/original part of this universe. I liked getting back to what was happening to this country post-war, how things were shifting and being reset up. Since the whispers of it are so tiny and barely there in Six of Crows/Crooked Kingdom.

I'm still processing my feelings re: Nina just basically gets paired up with another character immediately, as though these characters can't be single & anyone who is must be questioned as to why they haven't settled down yet. Brum's Daughter's storyline with gender fluidity and selfhood, though, was aces. I'm shrug-worthily okay with the main couple, no big love or loss in it, or in Zoya's new powers.

The thing that bugs me most about Zoya's new powers isn't the highest whine going about the internets about it and her deserving/not deserving this power, BUT that she's taught this power with the note that every Grisha used to access their powers like this / how they've all been diminished by this loss AND THEN SHE NEVER TEACHES ANYONE ELSE ABOUT IT.

Allllsssso, dang, but I super appreciated Bardugo coming out the gate hard on how much The Darkling really was the bad guy and no one has any sympathy for him really. That he only asks for Alina & Mal so that he can steal their blood/power from them again, and that every single one of the girls in the set (Alina, Genya, Zoya) want this man gone, gone, gone forever.

I was so pleased getting just a little more Alina & Mal, Jesper & Wylan, Kaz. I'm sad we never got our Pirate Queen. I'm really happy there's a scene just for Genya, Zoya, and Alina hanging out at the end, talking about how not-to-become-the-bad-guy eventually, because I like that it shows forethought about what choices were made and what their domino choices from there will make of them, too.
