Waiting on Wednesday #71: Ruin and Rising

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week's WoW is...

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Title: Ruin and Rising (The Grisha Trilogy #3)
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Release date: June 17th 2014
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

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.

Though I desperately need a reread of the series before I start reading this, I'm so excited for it! This conclusion is going to be epic. I'm just worried about certain things that I fear might happen which I don't want, but I'm still very anxious to read this. Less than a month left now!


  1. I too am excited for this but I've been saving Siege and Storm to read right before this one comes out so that I don't have to wait! I guess it's almost time! =)

  2. I have just read Shadow & Bone so NEED to read Siege & Storm first, but wow I'm excited!!!
