King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo (Grishaverse #6)

Hello, readers!
With King of Scars we enter into a new duology written by Leigh Bardugo. Still set within the realm of the Grishaverse, this book (and the next one that is to come) focuses on a different bunch of characters than the Six of Crows novels – however, those characters are old friends!

The Plot:

Three years after the events of Ruin and Rising, Nikolai is King and tries to get Ravka on the right track. Being King is never an easy job, especially if there is a monster inside, just waiting to break free…

The Rating:

This was so good!
Although I was sad to leave Ketterdam and my favorite Murder Babies behind, I was also excited to see what King Nikolai is up to these days.

Unfortunately, nothing in Ravka is ever smooth sailing. Charming Nikolai is plagued by a monster and his conflict is expertly depicted in this book. I like how Leigh Bardugo allows her characters to evolve and how she gives them depth. It’s not only Nikolai in this novel but also Zoya about whom we learn so much more.

The Weasly Twins from the Harry Potter books

You can’t talk about fun without naming the Weasly twins. Fred and George are the most famous pranksters of the Harry Potter universe. They are funny, adorable and I want to be best friends with them.
