Yes, I did it! I finished the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. This means I can finally dive into Six Of Crows very soon, but first I have a review of the final instalment of this trilogy for you.Ruin and Rising (Shadow and Bone, #3) by Leigh Bardugo

The capital has fallen.
The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.
Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.
Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.
Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova's amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.
I will keep this review very short, because there is not much to say about these books. All books in the Grisha Verse are interesting, action-packed and good. This will set the standards for Six Of Crows even higher, but still.
In Ruin & Rising we see that Alina lost her ability to summen her powers. Will she get them back? Will she manage to ruin the Darkling for once and for all? That’s still a question for you, but I know the answer.
Although this book has not many twists and turns, it was still a fantastic read and a satisfying conclusion to this series. There were some events that left me gasping and you will find out why whenever you will read this book. In a nutshell: I loved Ruin & Rising as much as I loved the other books in this series and I’m even more curious for Six Of Crows now.
