Quatrième de couverture
The Darkling gently folded me in his arms. He pressed a kiss to the top of my hair. "I will strip away all that you know, all that you love, until you have no other shelter but me."
For Alina, time is running out. To destroy the Darkling, she needs to find the elusive firebird, and she needs to find it soon.
The Darkling's power is growing. And so is his connection to Alina. Can Alina escape the hold he has over her? Does she want to?
Mal is the one person Alina can rely on in an increasingly uncertain world. But could giving in to the bond between them be the most dangerous decision of all?
The stunning conclusion to Shadow and Bone and Siege and Storm by New York Times Bestselling Author, Leigh Bardugo.--Ce texte fait référence à l'édition paperback.

The world-building is yet again fabulous. Leigh Bardugo has created amazing imagery that enthrals the reader and she vividly portrays every scene with architectural details, local legends and stories, meticulous descriptions of landscapes and fantastic, creepy and deadly creatures. All these details give a special charm to the story.
After her last confrontation with the Darkling, Alina has transformed a lot. She is no longer the vulnerable girl from the previous volumes; she has become a skilled strategist, a fighter/a leader/ a saint who arouses admiration and fear in allies and enemies alike. The road ahead is not an easy one, but with Mal, Nikolai and her Grisha friends by her side, she always pushes on. I appreciate Mal for his devotion to Alina, though I still can't see them as lovers. He becomes the hero who sacrifices himself out of love and loyalty, driven by honour and duty. He puts Alina before anyone else, above his own life, without a second thought. As for the Darkling, he will forever be my favourite in this story. He remains true to his nature until the end. A veritable foe who does not seek redemption and won't apologize for his actions (I wouldn't imagine him in any other way). And that ending was a genuine surprise.
Magical, seductive, surprising and devastating, Ruin and Rising has definitely surpassed all my expectations. I am looking forward to reading the other books set in the Grishaverse.
The narrative is so wrapped up in Alina's boy trouble that the real issues are left to one side. The political plots could have made this really interesting and given a real look at what is at stake. Instead it's a monologue of a bratty teen who is more interested in who fancies her.
The last chapter signposted that this whole story was about "love". I never got that. Alina's relationships are all so flawed that I couldn't really root for any of them.
There is a lot of love out there for all the male characters and every one has their favourite. But each use Alina for their own gain, the plot twist about the amplifier just made it even more problematic and the end made me so angry. Can a female character not have power that is all her own? Why is it always somehow given or made greater or even suppressed and taken away by a man?
Another issue I have is that the characters never really get fleshed out. The first book got me excited about the villain who seemed like a great character, the second book made me think he was the only thing that made this book interesting as there was a real attempt to question Alina's feelings and his motives and he was a strong baddie. The third turned the ancient powerful and initially very menacing figure in to a spoilt child. Maybe that was the point?
Books like these live and die by the quality of the heroes and the aura of the baddies.
The heroes were too wrapped up in eachother to see the big picture had no real conviction and simply react to situations. The baddie was turned from a seriously creepy and charismatic villain to a pantomime figure.
The series flops down dead.
The Apparat has painted Alina as a new Saint. Alina is not interested in being a saint. Her ambition lies in finding the third amplifier and defeating The Darkling.
This book is better than the first but nowhere near as good as the second. Whilst I did enjoy a lot of the journey, Nikolai was missing for most of the book. There was so much more that could have been done with his character. I also hated the ending.
Believe me, I’m just as surprised as you are that I gave this book 4 stars considering how much of Shadow and Bone and Siege and Storm got on my nerves. There’s still a lot I don’t get about this series; we do learn a little more about him here and he did become a more interesting villain, but I still don’t get the obsession with The Darkling and I really don’t think he and Alina make sense as a romantic couple. That’s more of a discrepancy within the fandom than with this book, however, so I’m not going to hold it against the book; Bardugo is very clear that The Darkling is the villain here.
I also still don’t feel like I got to know Alina and Mal as much as I wanted to considering they’re our heroes, and their relationship drama is still boring. I do like the two of them together – I know a lot of other fans would rather see her with The Darkling, Nikolai or Genya (personally I kept hoping Genya and Zoya might be a thing) – but Alina and Mal are the same level of ordinary to suit each other. As much as Alina’s power might have thrust her into greatness, she was never going to be more at home in the Ravkan court, at either The Darkling or Nikolai’s side, than she is when she’s with Mal.
All that aside, from the very first page this book didn’t stop moving and I really appreciated that. Honestly I feel like this entire trilogy could have been condensed into one, epic beast of a novel rather than a trilogy in which the first two books had to be padded out with boy drama. All the action finally happened in this book.
Even better, Alina has gumption!
From the first page Alina was finally making decisions and biting back at people and she finally started feeling like a person rather than a character filling a role. That doesn’t make up for how ‘meh’ she was in the first two books but it certainly made this book far more enjoyable to read.
And, credit where credit’s due, Ravka is in the middle of a war and Bardugo isn’t afraid to kill off a lot of people. In fact I really liked where she took the plot in this book; there’s a twist regarding the third amplifier that I didn’t see coming, and when The Darkling finally got his comeuppance it was in such an ordinary way that I almost pitied him. Almost. I mean, the guy did gouge his own mother’s eyes out. And I loved Baghra.
Zoya continued to be one of my favourite characters in this series – I know she’s mean, but she’s unapologetically, honestly mean and there’s something about her that I’m drawn to – and I loved the inclusion of a very small side f/f romance between Tamar and Nadia. I would have liked a little more of them, but I loved what we did see of them and considering I’ll gobble up anything f/f fantasy I was thrilled to see their relationship there. It didn’t feel like they’d been thrown together for no reason, either; the two of them suited one another.
My poor, sweet Nikolai goes through hell in this book, too, but I’m glad I made myself read this series before King of Scars so I could understand the whole history behind what his experiences during this war were. I loved having his sense of humour in this book again, and I actually liked his and Alina’s friendship in this book a lot. Again, I don’t think the two of them would have worked romantically, but I still enjoyed their relationship in this book. Alina and Mal end up with a fairly large friendship group and I love well-written friendships in any book, particularly fantasy, and I enjoyed how this odd group was juxtaposed against The Darkling’s loneliness.
While I thought this book didn’t quite feel as huge as I thought it should – though I loved the idea of the religious following growing around ‘Sankta Alina’ and the various towns and villages the main characters visited, it didn’t quite feel like the fate of Ravka was at stake, just the fate of Alina and those closest to her – for me this was a huge improvement on the first two books. I think my opinion is in the minority, most reviews I’ve seen praise Siege and Storm as the best book in the series and call Ruin and Rising a disappointing finale, but I thought this was the most satisfying book in the series. I loved how Bardugo brought Alina’s story to an end, and I can’t wait to read King of Scars.
