SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
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.
It is rare that I find a trilogy ending as good as this. Now I am in tears because it's over.

This is how you write a trilogy. THIS is how you write a trilogy ending. Unlike some trilogy endings (*cough* Allegiant *cough*), RUIN AND RISING did not disappoint in the slightest. But it brought on the feels, man. ALL THE FEELS.

But the ending more than made up for it.

If you have not read this trilogy, I don't know what you are doing with your life. Go out and read it. Right now. You will not regret it!

CONTENT: Two of the characters have sex, but it is not detailed. Hardly any swearing, but there is some pretty disturbing scenes and gory violence.
