Hello humans! It’s a predictable W2RW post today and one that I feel every YA fantasy book blogger has already basically written. But I’m so excited for this book and it felt like it would be a crime to leave it off my W2RW list!
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’s coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army.
Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha Squaller, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish 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 heal.
Confession time, I still haven’t read the Grisha trilogy *hides behind a wall while you fling rotten tomatoes at me* but I keep meaning to and I think this will spur me forward because IT’S ANOTHER LEIGH BARDUGO DUOLOGY AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE READY.
Seriously, I’m still not over Crooked Kingdom but I will read the heck out of this as soon as humanly possible. Give it to me now.
