This is book 3...and ladies and gentleman this is how a trilogy should end! For those of you who enjoyed Harry Potter....do you remember thinking at the end...does the wand belong to Harry....or doesn't it? This book had that type of ending, an ending that made me happy/sad/anxious to see if it would work/and just rung out thinking...man, I have GOT to listen to these again, it was awesome but so much happened I'm sure I missed something.
This book is full of murder, mystery, plots, plans, and best intentions. And we FINALLY see who Ileana will pick to be her man. The ending was amazing, it was powerful, and I think this series is good for anyone to read. Not much in the way of steam, but the story itself was so gripping adding in some steam for the sake of steam would have seemed false.
Can't say enough good things about this series!

Ruin and Rising is a beautiful and emotional ending to a fantastic trilogy. I absolutely loved this book and I could not put it down. I lost a lot of sleep over this one and I must say it was well worth the sleepless nights. Much like the previous two books this was a rich story with well-developed characters and plenty of plot twists and turns.
The final installment ties up many loose ends and comes to an absolutely satisfying conclusion. Although many were disappointed by the ending (mainly the love story) I thought the author did a wonderful job of pulling off a love quadrangle. There was never a “clear choice” for Alina and I believe the story came to a logical and satisfying ending.
I cared so much for these characters, including the villain; he was so cruel, calculating and absolutely evil but I still found him completely mesmerizing. Kudos to Bardugo’s brilliant writing!
I’m sad to let this story and these characters go, but I look forward to more from such a talented author.
5 HUGE stars!!

Thoroughly enjoyed it, so so so amazingly well thought out. The universe she has made in these books is a testament to how important world building is when creating such a fantastic story. All the little details and lore, gave the book life, in top of which complex charecters who weren't just one dimensional and showed change in more ways than one. and the over acrhing plot, I thought I had the book figured out as the author has deliberately lead me into repetitive narrative traps. Just turns out she played me like a fiddle and turned the whole thing on my head! was such a great read.
To a great trilogy.
The story twists & turns sometimes at such pace you have to concentrate to keep up! Desperate, exultant & beautiful - edge of your seat listening.
One of the absolute best narrators for an already beautiful story. A story I will be reading again and again and again.
the narration is perfect and lifts the story to a whole new level. i love the language and story and the conclusion is wonderful
