Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha Squaller, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him.

NOOOOOOO!!!!!!! First, why, oh why did I finish this today? Now I'll have to wait for the next one ( )

King of Scars could also be called book four of the Shadow and Bone Trilogy although you need to read the Six of Crows duology.

As it's further in the series, I prefer not to say a whole lot because it gives away too much from the previous books. Alina is no longer around (read book 3), so Nikolai has the Grisha left who fought against the Darkling at his side. He must now rule the kingdom that some believe he has no right to rule. He, however, was born to rule. He knows exactly how to present himself depending upon the audience. He believes in change and sacrifice in order to do what is best for Ravka. Of course, he has the small problem of the darkness within him from the Darkling. Will it take over and the country has no king or can he remove it without dying and rid the world of the darkness? He also needs to marry in order to secure the future of the kingdom with children in case he were to die. Zoya, his general, offers strength and power. Her job and goal is to protect Nikolai in order to save the country. She has her own demons and hopes NIkolai can survive and save everyone.

Meanwhile, Nina, Andrik and Leoni support the effort by doing some spy work. It's while they are out that they discover that girls are disappearing. Undercover, they try to discover what is going on only to find a nemesis from Nina's past (see Six of Crows). Nina doesn't always work well with others. Dangerous foes can outwit even the best of the Grisha.

I really enjoyed this novel and can't wait to read the second book in the duology, Rule of Wolves. I have it on hold! Enjoy! If you haven't read Shadow and Bone trilogy and the Six of Crows duology, do so. They are a lot of fun! ( )

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


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.

This book has been my most anticipated release of this year and you all can bet that despite this review being posted today, I actually did read and finish the book on the day of its release because I couldn’t imagine going to sleep without knowing what happens to my darling Nikolai. And I’m so glad that this book lived up to all my expectations and more. Definitely going to be one of my top reads of 2019.

I am completely in love with the world that Leigh has created and it was so much fun to be back in Ravka. This is a different kingdom now, still ravaged by the failures of the previous king and the destruction wrought by the Darkling. The author gives us a tale of a young king trying his best to give his kingdom peace, of the people who are so desperate that some would rewrite history to project the Darkling as a Saint, of the Grisha and the first army within the country trying to develop their defenses to protect their country from multiple enemies, while the spy network is trying to protect the Grisha who are oppressed and killed in the enemy states. But what astounded me the most was that the author took everything that we knew about the Small Science and completely upended it. The implications of this new reality are staggering and I can’t wait to see how it all plays out in the later books. We also get a much deeper look into the culture and the brutality of the Fjerdans and some history of the Shu royal family and it was great to know about them. And we obviously get more of what Leigh is best at - sassy, funny, sarcastic and extremely quotable dialogues between the characters and I absolutely fell in love again with the banter.

Nikolai my bae is back and I loved reading his POV. However, he is not the same man anymore and the stress of running and protecting his country while the coffers are empty and trying to control the monster in himself is totally stressing him out. This book is essentially his journey, him figuring it all out; how to be the King his beloved Ravka needs, how to vanquish his enemies without trying to plunge them into an all out war again and making the journey to the Fold - back to where it all started and decide what he is ready to sacrifice. We have mostly known his sassy and strategic side before, but in this book we get a more vulnerable side to him, someone who loves his country more than anything, a prince who never liked being idle and always wanted to be productive, who despite being the King and knowing the political reality, longs for true friends and companionship. He really is such an amazing character and even seeing him bare all his insecurities, I can only love him more and I can keep talking about him all day 😂😂

We get to also read from both Zoya’s and Nina’s POVs and they truly were revelations. Nina is drowning in her grief and survivor’s guilt and is trying to live the only way she can - protecting the Grisha who can’t defend themselves. We see more of how the new powers are affecting her and they play such a huge role in her journey. She, Adrik and Leoni are unwittingly thrown into a huge secret plot of the Fjerdans which would drastically affect the future of Ravka and in their efforts to destroy it, they are helped by a Fjerdan girl (possible LI for Nina). I loved this development of friendship between Nina and the young woman, it’s tentative and sweet but also full of secrets and lies ... and when the truths get revealed, they are explosive and I’m awaiting with bated breath as to what their decisions will lead to.

Zoya was never written as someone who we’ll like instantly because she can be very abrasive. But being in her head is a revelation. Despite showing the world her mask of the King’s General, she hides a traumatic past and uses all of her grief and the lessons she has brutally learned to move forward, to protect her people and her King. Her friendship with Nikolai was the best part of the book for me and there is so much push and pull, their feelings quite intense but they never tell each other because their duty to their country comes first. However, they do share some of their truths and fears and insecurities and it was great getting to know more about them and both of them trusting each other so much. Zoya is also tested more than anyone and I totally came to admire her strength and drive and immense resilience in the face of adversity. She never backs down from a fight and I can’t wait to see more of her.

I knew I was gonna love this book even before I started this, so my rating is not going to be a surprise. Obviously if you have read and loved any of Bardugo’s books, I highly recommend this one. I have seen many discussions around if this book can be read without reading the Grisha trilogy and my strong opinion is that it’s not possible to feel the magic of this story without reading both the original trilogy and the SoC duology. This book is full of little references to incidents and characters from them which made me insanely happy and I think the knowledge of the universe makes the reading experience of this book much better. This may not be as action packed as I probably expected, but the writing is wonderful as usual, the plot is engaging, the revelations and the ending are spectacular, completely blew my mind and I would give anything to read what happens next.

While this isn't necessarily the weakest of Leigh Bardugo's books, it is probably the most disappointing. Her first books, the Shadow and Bone trilogy, were by no means perfect, but they showed a lot of promise. Her following books, the Six of Crows duology, showcased Bardugo's improved craft as a writer as she masterfully handled an intricate, engrossing plot filled with engaging characters.
Sadly, the Nikolai duology really feels like a giant step backward for Bardugo. Instead of carefully weaving threads together for a complex, well-rounded story with a satisfying conclusion, King of Scars meanders through three different storylines and makes very little effort to tie them together. I assume there will be a payoff in the second book and the plotlines will finally connect, but with 500 pages of buildup, it had better be awfully good. ( )
