Maybe love was superstition, a prayer we said to keep the truth of the loneliness at bay.

Hey loves! How's your summer been? I'll hopefully be going to the beach soon, and I can't wait to read the next novel that I have :) But until then I have the final book the Grisha Trilogy to talk to you guys about!! Ruin and Rising was the perfect ending to this well-written trilogy.

Summary:
Alina after trying to kill the Darkling in the previous book is left weakened and has to submit to the crazy Apparat and all who worship her as a Saint. But she has other plans than to be the Saint the Apparat wants her to me. Finding the firebird, forming new alliances, and terminating the rule of the Darkling. In search of the firebird, she discovers more about the past that'll change her understanding of her present. Will she be able to conquer her mission or will the firebird be the very means of her destruction?

The way this all ended was just beautiful. I have no complaints, well maybe a few, but the storyline left me complete. I didn't have any questions after I finished reading it, and overall, I like how everything happened at the end for all the characters. I still prefer Nikolai over Mal, but I don't hate Mal after finishing this book. I'll be reading the spin-off to this novel and of course, write a review about it.

In all, I have to give this novel a 9/10. It wrapped up the plot and storyline amazingly. It grabbed and hooked my attention. But most of all I was glad that I didn't have "what ifs" or what happens next. So I recommend that you read this whole trilogy, you won't regret it.

Hopefully, if you decide to read this trilogy (you definitely should), then I hope you fall in love with it the way I did. As always, my messages are open if you want to discuss anything, and you can hit me up on any of my social media. Til next time loves! Stay beautiful, stay grinding, and most of all, stay golden. <3
