Where King of Scars left off, Ravka was on the verge of war, Nina was undercover in Fjerda putting herself in a dangerous position for the sake of the Grisha, and … the Darkling had returned.

Now, Nikolai must try to juggle negotiating a treaty with the ruthless queen of Shu Han who has already tried to assassinate him, preparing for war with vastly fewer soldiers and resources than the enemy, silencing the rumours about his illegitimacy for the crown, and dealing with the Darkling who does not yet have his power back but is just as wily and manipulative as ever. There’s a lot on his plate!

Meanwhile, Nina is in the den of the wolves: living in the Ice Court as a companion to Jarl Brum’s daughter — two Grisha under the noses of the druskelle commander. Her mission is twofold: gather valuable intelligence about the Fjerdan war effort to send back to Nikolai, and turn the attitude of the Fjerdan people from hatred of Grisha to admiration and awe. All without getting herself or Hanne Brum caught and killed.

Suffice it to say, there is a LOT going on in this book, and at times it became a little confusing to keep track of everything, but for the most part that wasn’t a problem. It does keep everything moving at a quick pace and there’s never a dull moment. The conclusion had a couple of surprises that I was not expecting but fit very well! Plus, we got a short cameo of the Crows, which was great! It sounds like the next book/series in the Grishaverse will be Crow-centric, so I’m very much looking forward to that! ( )

This book deserves more stars than 5!

I am at a loss. I don't know how to express my feelings.

The way in which the author has captured the feelings, the emotions, the schemes, the plot twists upon plot twists and the ending which does not leave any threads loose- all of this amazed me, captivated my mind and will leave an imprint.

Nikolai is playing political roulette after surviving an attempt on his life in the previous book. And he's still battling for control over the demon inside him and there's no time to lose. Stopping the spread of The Fold has spawned a roaming blight that turns everything to ash. War is imminent with Nina working undercover to get intel and, eventually, the whole gang joining forces. Entertaining fantasy with adventure and humor. ( )

The Grishaverse lives on! At this point in a series, it's hard to say much about a book because you really need to have read the other books. So, Rule of Wolves is second in the King of Scars duology that comes right after book 3 of the Shadow and Bone trilogy, but you must read the Six of Crows duology before embarking on this duology. Got it? Good.

The King of Scars duology focuses on Nikolai and Zoya. Now that Alina has moved on to a new life, the fight remains. Nikolai fights the demon within that is from the Darkling's power. Can he learn to control the darkness or will it consume him? He seems to be able to keep it in check for now. Zoya finds her place in this novel. We learn about her past as she finally must face her past and not keep her scars hidden. Zoya is Nikolai's general, and they need her. Nothing looks good. No one wants to ally with them and the Fjerdans are determined to conquer them. They have more power, men, and weapons. How can Nikolai and Zoya protect Ravka? This war is the novel.

Nina remains undercover with the Fjerdans throughout the novel. She must bury Matthias and find a path to life without him. Seeing only the importance of being a spy, Nina pours herself into her new role and even ends up in the most dangerous place she could possible find herself after what happened to her in the past. Tamar take us to meet the Taban, queen Makhi, who also wants to wage war against Ravka. The nearest neighbors feel Ravka can't win, so they aren't inclined to have their people die in someone else's war. Therefore, it's determined that there's no way Ravka will stand.

The novel changes perspective with each chapter, from Queen Makhi to Zoya, to Mahu, to Nikolai, to Nina, to others. You travel from country to country, discovering what's happening in each country and with multiple characters. The tension builds as there appears to be no hope for Ravka. Can we count the clever Nikolai out? Zoya, Nikolai, and the Triumvirate meet regularly hoping to find a way to win. Not only are they fighting against two countries, they acquire Yuri. Yuri leads the followers of the Darkling, wanting the Darkling to be declared a saint. When Nikolai and Zoya seek to strength Nikolai, they hope to talk sense into Yuri. Things can't get more complicated? Boy do they!

You'll enjoy this novel as much as the others. Back with your old friends, you will hope Zoya and Nikolai find peace (and maybe some love), that Nina survives and finds some kind of happiness or peace, and that Ravka isn't destroyed, leaving them to start all over in the next novel. You will also enjoy meeting some new characters and visiting with the characters from the other novels. Don't make plans for a couple of days and just enjoy a good reading time! ( )

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


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.
