🎧Review: Rule of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo


Title: Rule of Wolves

Series: King of Scars #2

Author: Leigh Bardugo

he wolves are circling and a young king will face his greatest challenge in the explosive finale of the instant #1 New York Times-bestselling King of Scars Duology.

The Demon King. As Fjerda’s massive army prepares to invade, Nikolai Lantsov will summon every bit of his ingenuity and charm—and even the monster within—to win this fight. But a dark threat looms that cannot be defeated by a young king’s gift for the impossible.

The Stormwitch. Zoya Nazyalensky has lost too much to war. She saw her mentor die and her worst enemy resurrected, and she refuses to bury another friend. Now duty demands she embrace her powers to become the weapon her country needs. No matter the cost.

The Queen of Mourning. Deep undercover, Nina Zenik risks discovery and death as she wages war on Fjerda from inside its capital. But her desire for revenge may cost her country its chance at freedom and Nina the chance to heal her grieving heart.

King. General. Spy. Together they must find a way to forge a future in the darkness. Or watch a nation fall.

I didn’t not like this book, anything regarding the Grishaverse and I’m there for it shaking my pom poms but I guess I just expected this to be different, but that’s on me!

So in this book we have 3 point of views, Nikolai, Zoya and Nina and there is a lot happening!

These are just a few of my thoughts:

I think I wanted more Nikolai than this, I mean wasn’t this meant to be his book?

My Nina. My lovely, heartbroken queen. The Queen of Mourning. I mean I don’t mind that she has her happy ending, I’m really happy that she’s happy but I really wanted Matthias resurrected!!

I initially didn’t like Zoya but that had changed  she has grown on me! But…..DRAGONS! Could I be more excited?! The answer is no! 

There was one part where I cried out in anger, why oh why kill off someone else?!!  I mean I know its a world of basically war but noooo!!!

So not much of a review but to do want to say there was the same great writing, great word building and fab banter and loved seeing old friends and old enemies!

And that SoC bit at the end!!!! Happy dance!

I’ll leave you with one of my fave lines:

‘Nikolai followed his Queen through the mountains.’

  2. I’ve been so afraid to read this. King of Scars was a bit of a let down for me, so I have just put off picking this up.
