Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Ruin and Rising
by Leigh Bardugo

The last book in the Grisha Trilogy, Alina finally faces the Darkling.

This one took me forever to read. I thought the world building was interesting, but I never fully connected to the main character. She had her moments, but she never felt like the driving force of the story for me. My favorite character was all but gone from the story and that certainly slowed my pace with this book. I enjoyed this trilogy, but I never fell in love with it.
