Book Review- Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo (3rd Book in Trilogy)


I really enjoyed this book and I thought it wrapped up the story well. I have really mixed emotions about how it all ended though. It was certainly a clean and tidy ending. I wanted so many things to happen that didn’t which is why I can’t give it the full 5 stars. As far as the writing itself goes, it was entertaining and exciting and I couldn’t put the book down. I read the book in one day. I really noticed how Bardugo’s writing improved throughout the series.

There were a few surprises that I didn’t predict, or kinda predicted but didn’t get exactly right. I loved all the characters, how they were developed, and even found myself laughing at some of their interactions that I feel really brought it all to life.

Having said all that though, I really wished for something that I can’t quite put my finger on, and I never got it. I am left wanting…

While I enjoy reading everything, my favorite genre is fantasy. One of my hobbies is reading and reviewing books on various online platforms. I have dabbled in short stories and writing poetry, publishing a small book of my poems in 2022, with an independent publisher. I enjoy keeping the world up-to-date on her writing, reading, and random thoughts on my blog.I am also currently writing my first novel.
