Ruin and Rising (The Grisha, #3) by Leigh Bardugo

Ruin and Rising (The Grisha, #3)  by Leigh Bardugo

As the last one in the trilogy, it is by far the best. This book was really engaging with great character development and lots of plot twists. As Alina and Mal prepare once again to take on the Darkling, they have to figure out who is on their side while also trying to understand the third amplifier better. The whole time I was reading it I was on edge wondering what could happen next unable to predict it. It had me yelling out in frustration and excitement with great plot twists. This book was also funnier then the other two as Mal got more sarcastic and comfortable around the Grisha. I liked the ending, but I definitely think that it could have gone another direction and been even better. I really liked how it took on the edge of religion, because in most books magic or super powers are opposed by religion or other organizations, but in this story, they do not use religion in the typical fearful way but use it to add more depth and meaning to everything (this book is by no means religious, but it has its own religion created within it). Overall  this is a great conclusion to the series and I highly recommend it.
