I’m not really sure where to start when it comes to this book. It’s been a long journey from Shadow and Bone, watching Alina learn how to use her Sun Summoner powers, to now, Rule of Wolves, following the king of scars and his team of insanely talented characters as they take on the world.
Going into this book, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. From the title, I’d gathered that the book revolved mostly around Nikolai Lantsov. We’d last left him in Ruin and Rising as becoming the king, and in Crooked Kingdom we saw Sturmhond come back to life with his small appearance, however, this was a completely new story with a character that I absolutely adore.
Where do I even start? I think this duology has become one of my favorite series ever. I connected with each of these characters so thoroughly and I felt every emotion with them. I’m currently crying over a few of these characters and I can’t believe it’s over.
This book was amazing. I honestly think it’s one of my new favorites. After finishing the Shadow and Bone trilogy, I was definitely curious to see how this spin-off duology would do, especially since I loved the trilogy so much.
Alright, it’s finally time to talk about Shadow and Bone. This adaptation has been one of the most exciting things I’ve had in months and with the pandemic, I’m pretty sure everyone is just as obsessed as I am.
Okay, where do I even start? This was a complete roller coaster of a book and I honestly don’t know how to feel. Ruin and Rising is definitely my favorite of the three books in this series and I think it wraps everything up so well, although I’m definitely intrigued to read more stories taking place in this universe.
