Booklist Reviews 2014 May #2

In the concluding volume of the Grisha Trilogy, Alina, chafing at the Apparat's enforced protection in the underground White Cathedral, decides it is past time to break free and seek the Fire Bird, the last of the three amplifiers of her power. Battling across a land ravaged by the war with the Darkling, Alina's band is rescued by Prince Nikolai and taken to his hidden headquarters, where the group of allies plans for the dangerous journey into the Fold. There, Alina must reconcile her country's need for her to be Nikolai's queen with giving up her lifelong love for her childhood friend Mal. A psychic connection with the Darkling heightens the tension as they struggle for control of Ravka. An intriguing plot twist adds an unexpected new element, requiring an unthinkable sacrifice. Readers won't be able to turn the pages fast enough to the conclusion that will generate much discussion. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Since the first title in the trilogy, Shadow and Bone (2012), hit the New York Times best-seller list—and film rights were sold—this series has been big news. Top-level marketing plans will ensure it stays that way. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Fall

Alina and company have only one hope: if they can kill the Firebird, its magical bones can be used to break the Darkling's chokehold on Ravka. In this concluding volume, Alina must rely on her childhood friend Mal's preternatural tracking ability. Bardugo's longstanding theme of "power corrupts" is developed organically; the magic she invents will surprise and delight readers.

Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2014 #4

Fresh from a stunning defeat at the hands of the evil Darkling (in Siege and Storm, rev. 5/13), Alina the Sun Summoner and her small band of rebels have one hope: if they can track and kill the Firebird, a near-mythical beast, its magical bones can be used to break the Darkling's chokehold on the kingdom of Ravka. But then the Darkling attacks crown prince Nikolai (who has asked Alina to become his queen if they survive the battle) and turns him into a nichevo'ya, a cannibalistic winged abomination. With one of her allies beyond reach, Alina must rely on her childhood friend and love interest Mal, whose preternatural tracking ability will take her to the Firebird but whose devotion to her is doomed by their difference in stations. In this concluding volume, Bardugo emphasizes the strength of fellowship among the comrades-in-arms, allowing Alina the comfort of loyal supporters but threatening her constantly with their loss. The longstanding theme of "power corrupts" is developed organically, while the magic Bardugo invents will surprise and delight readers with its lateral thinking and earned promise of a happy ending. anita l. burka Copyright 2014 Horn Book Magazine.
