Free download King of Scars ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Download é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ¿ Leigh Bardugo Nikolai Lantsov has always had a gift for the impossible No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war and he intends to keep it that way Now as enemies gather at his weakened borders the young king must find a way to refill Ravka?. Most of us can hide our greatest hurts and longings It s how we survive each day We pretend the pain isn t there that we are made of scars instead of wounds Oh friends it has been a long while since I read the concluding events in Ruin and Rising Honestly I probably really would have benefited from doing a reread Yet I will be the first to admit that I was complete Darkling trash back in the day and I have grown a lot as a person and realized that he is someone that shouldn t be romanticized but I was so damn hyped for this story and to see how the people of Ravka are doing after that final battle and living under a brand new king And I can t believe I m saying this but I was truly let down Also I want to emphasize that a three star rating isn t a bad rating I still enjoyed this and I loved seeing some of the character that I love with my whole heart and soul and also falling in love with a new character too But this was just so ungodly slow for the first half which is something I ve never felt while reading anything by Leigh before I know that we had a lot of be caught up on but I just couldn t immerse myself into the world or story until after the halfway point I really recommend that you don t read King of Scars or this review honestly if you have not read all the other books in the Grishaverse But as a uick recap before I get into my thoughts and feelings People are still fearful of Grisha and are capturing and killing them regularly Grisha are also still becoming addicted to jurda parem and many different variations of it which enhances their powers but at a cost The books do not tell the whole story And this story is told in many points of views but there are pretty much only three locations that this story takes place until they will hopefully all weave back together Zoya and Nikolai are off with a new character trying to discover what lives inside Nikolai Meanwhile back at the palace family friends are teaching a young boy how to impersonate Nikolai himself so no one will know that he is away And then we have Nina off on a completely new mission where she finds out so much about herself and what is happening to Grishas in areas that are still living in fear of themBut this is a story about grief and loss and how living with those two things can impact your life beyond words This is a story about being the person everyone wants you to be while ultimately choosing the person you truly are This is a story about feeling like your life is predicted for you but realizing that you are capable of doing any and everything you want Call me Grisha Call me zowa Call me death if you like Zoya Nazyalensky One of the strongest Grishas ever Sualler of the Etherealki Order and is an incredible fighter and leader She was also the Darkling s favorite but is now my favorite Genya Safin My second favorite character Genya as the Darkling s gift used to be the servant to the ueen and was treated so very terribly She is much happier now but still is living with the torture that the Darkling inflicted upon her David Kostyk A very skilled Fabrikator who helped make things to hold amplifiers Tolya Yul Bataar Tamar Kir Bataar Twin Grishas who own my heart Isaak The common boy solider who is impersonating Nikolai while he is away I fell so in love with this new character so easily truly Nina Zenik Heartrender of the Corporalki order who used to be a part of the Dregs in Six of Crows Now on a top secret mission that is about to be jeopardized because of new information Also she is on a mission for herself to finally lay someone to rest at home Hanne Fjerdan who Nina meets and instantly feels connected with Hanne is just trying to live in a world where every opportunity has been taken from her because she is a daughter and not a son Leoni Adrik both are Grishas who are accompanying Nina on her new mission Yuri A monk who is with Nikolai and Zoya who is also one of the leaders of Cult of the Starless who worship the Darkling Nikolai Lantsov The current King of Ravka who is expected to marry and produce an heir because so many foes are looking to overtake him But he is dealing with the torture that the Darkling has left in his body A handsome monster husband who put a crown on her head It s a perfect fairy tale to sell to some starry eyed girl She can lock you in at night and kiss you sweetly in the morning and Ravka will be secure Nikolai s monster is something that no one really knows how to control but he is constantly being drawn to The Shadow Fold which was the breeding ground of unspeakable shadow horrors and where the Darkling harnessed so very much of his immense power We are also introduced to three new characters that I m not going to really talk about because of spoilers but they were amazing I loved learning about amplifiers since there are so few people who have had them in this world and seeing the power that they bring is pretty intense and such a cool development in this story Again without saying too much I loved all the scenes involving The Fold We are all connected King Nikolai The Grisha the Fold the power inside you The Fold is a wound that may never heal But perhaps it was not meant to But chapter twenty five is the best chapter in this entire book and that s because Zoya is the best character in this book Like I get that it is called King of Scars but this book was way about Zoya and her beautiful story and everything that she has overcome than Nikolai s Especially since this book also spends half of the time focusing on Nina and what she is up to on her mission I just feel like this is not Nikolai s book it was half Zoya s and half Nina s Which is fine I m not saying I disliked that I just feel like it was a weird flex because going in you expect it to be all things Nikolai and it really couldn t be further from the truth Plus it really doesn t feel like his character progressed all that much either where Zoya and Nina both had tremendously big events happen that will alter their future and the very future of Ravka Okay but now I m going to say the thing that s probably going to make you all dislike this review but I don t really ship Nikolai and Zoya together Like I think the story would have been way powerful if they were just friends But this weird romance is laced throughout the story even though there is no confirmation or reward or actual romance it just felt weird to read Especially with that annoying ending I don t know I just really don t ship them together yet but I probably will eventually And I totally would have shipped them if we would have gotten of them actually starting a romance instead of us just being like okay yeah this is totally the direction that Leigh is leading us Plus that ending I really don t want another unnecessary love triangle And I want this review to be spoiler free so I m not going to go into details but you re either going to love or hate the ending And friends I for sure hated it One of my favorite things in literature is when a spin off series comes out and the overarching threat is the ramifications of the what happened to that book s conclusion andor villain Having a cult that views the Darkling as a saint and worships him That was the setup of my dreams friends And the ending just felt like such a cop out and made me so angry and it really left such a disappointing taste in my mouth All fuels burn differently Some faster some hotter Hate is one kind of fuel But hate that began as devotion That makes for another kind of flame Overall I just didn t love this the way that I truly anticipated that I would Maybe I hyped it too much Maybe I shouldn t have reread The Wicked King right before starting this Maybe I m just being salty over the Darkling I don t know friends but this let me down I am highly anticipating what will come with the next book and I hope to have a much higher rating and happier review Also Ninth House is going to be everything and I

Free download King of Scars ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Download é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ¿ Leigh Bardugo Will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanuish the terrible legacy inside him He will risk everything to save his country and himself But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried and some wounds aren’t meant to he. Nikolai had always understood that he and Ravka were the same He just hadn t understood how He was not the crying child or even the drowning man He was the forever soldier eternally at war unable to ever lay down his arms and heal Maybe because he knew he and his country were the same MY SPOILERY DISCUSSION WHICH TALKS ABOUT THIS BOOK MORE IN DEPTH CAN BE FOUND HERE It was angry hungry full of broken animal longing Though Nikolai might not like it those things were all a part of him still Like calls to like Fair Warning this review is going to have a million uotes because this book was written SO BEAUTIFULLY and Leigh please lend me an OUNCE of your talent I think anyone who is in the YA book community knows just how big a deal this book getting announced was Every single update on Goodreads was people adding or talking about it twitter was going off and speculation and theory videos kept on popping up as and info got announced I was 100% a part of this hype Crooked Kingdom was one of the best books I ever read and that entire duology owns my heart I also actually really enjoyed The Grisha Trilogy for its political intrigue expansive world and interesting character who still inspire debate in the community even now Needless to say I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this book for uite some time And it kind of failed to live up to my expectations But it also way surpassed them in some regardsKing of Scars splits perspective between three main characters Zoya Nina and Nikolai There is also other perspectives but I cannot say much without spoiling We follow each after the events of Crooked Kingdom Nikolai and Zoya are trying to protect Ravka from threat from their bordering nations and rally the Grisha to support their country Nina is living in Fjerda under the kings orders to find and protect Grisha but also to fulfil her promise to Matthias to bury him back in his homelandFor me the first part of King of Scars was much stronger than the second The focus on politics in the first half was something I really enjoyed It had the same feel as Grisha but on a international scale I enjoyed that Bardugo kept up the intricacies of international politics established in Six of Crows but brought back original trilogy influences such as the power the church has within state affairs and Nikolai s precarious position as ruler due to his family lineage The political games and Nikolai trying to control the trajectory of Ravka when faced with great outside threat was easily my favourite aspect of this book If you enjoyed the original trilogy for its political intrigue I think you will definitely like thisNina s chapters in this were my favourites which I am shocked is apparently an unpopular opinion I don t want to say too much because you can t without getting into the spoilery realms but her role and what she was up to especially in the second half WAS THE BEST In Six of Crows Nina talks a lot about being a soldier and a nationalist and her love for Ravka and I think we saw that here I want even in book 2 Call me Grisha Call me zowa Call me death if you like Lets talk about characters I actually really enjoyed all three perspectives here Nina as mentioned was a joy and while she wasn t one of my favourite perspectives in Six of Crows she really won me over in thisNikolai and Zoya were both enjoyable too I have seen criticism that this book didn t have Nikolai in it that much and I don t agree I think he was in it uite a bit although his perspectives were perhaps the weakest Although he was fun to follow and I love him so much AND HE IS STYLISH AND FUNNY AS EVER I also felt we learnt a lot about him His character was definitely given a depth that wasn t there before and I think his inner turmoil regarding Ravka and how he came to identify with Ravka as a solider constntly at war was a really interesting development for him And definitely added a complexity to his character and his role as a king But even though I did enjoy his arc overall and I loved following him but it didn t hit as hard for me as Nina and Zoya s perspective I think Zoya especially just had such a strong voice in this and it definitely seemed to overshadow Nikolai at times Despite that I m not mad about it at all I think Zoya has such a strong narrative in this book it doesn t matter if Nikolai s fell down a little She was one of my favourite Grisha characters and I found her backstory really interesting It was so nice to have her perspective on the Civil War and to see her relationship with Nikolai Although I really like Nikolai I was interested in getting back in this world then seeing him particularly so for me this book still worked though if you re a die hard Nikolai fan I can see why it might not as muchThere was also some romance things going on which I am going to talk about those in my discussion Who would speak for Liliyana for Genya and Alina and Baghra if she did not Who will speak for me One final thing want to mention that I LOVED before we get into some issues was the theming and discussions around agency and what makes a villain King of Scars looks a lot at the repercussions of war and how The Darkling impacted each characters life The focus on how the state and states at war treat women as expendable and how each characters trauma is dismissed was something I really enjoyed Zoya s uest to reclaim and hold on to her agency and Nina s uest to give voice to victims was something I REALLY LOVED and haven t seen many people talk about much Lay down the thorn boy king Haven t you earned a bit of rest Aren t you tired He was Saints he was He thought he had grown used to his scars but he had never grasped how much of his will it would take to hide them He had fought and sacrificed and bled He had gone long days without rest and long nights without comfort All for Ravka all for an ideal he would never attain and a country that would never care Okay lets get into the issues which for me was the plot pretty much the entire way through part two excluding Nina s chapters I just didn t like it For me the plot became kind of too outlandish and I felt the ending was definitely rushed The careful set up and the way Leigh Bardugo had seemed to plot things out with precision really fell apart for me I found everything that happened with the world a bit too wacky I also HATED the ending I cannot say what happened without spoiling but it is one of my most hated tropes ever and I am SICK of books doing it So while I felt I should have been excited for the seuel now I m kinda just worried I also think the ending does such a disservice to some of her previous works I am going to go much into depth on this in my discussion so stay tunedOverall King of Scars definitely delivered what I was looking for in the majority of the book It was so nice to get back into the Grisha world and catch up with these characters who we haven t really seen in a long time I thoroughly enjoyed Nina s plot and the focus on dealing with the conseuences of the civil war that destroyed Ravka Leigh Bardugo is a really strong YA fantasy author and I think I will always enjoy her works However part two did fall apart a bit for me and the ending was something I hate So that definitely detracted from the enjoyment for me Overall though I found this extremely enjoyable and had all the hallmarks of a Bardugo book I love strong characters great worldbuilding excellent political intrigue and lush writing that sucks me right into the world She wished she had Inej s gift for spywork or Kaz s gift for scheming but she only seemed to have Jesper s gift for bad decisions OH AND ON THAT NOTE EVERY SIX OF CROWS REFERENCE HAD MY HEART GROWING FIVE SIZES The Stars Are Made of
