    Need The Sequel Now Please

    This book. I fangirled through it from start to finish. Not only was it fun to re-enter a world rich with lore and unique magic, but it was exciting to meet new characters from both the GRISHA trilogy and SIX OF CROWS. The story followed various different characters, but ultimately took two paths: One that followed Nikolai and his inner demon, and one that followed heartbroken Nina as she went on a mission for Nikolai. Both storylines didn't quite connect in a way that can be seen yet, but if you asked me to pick between them, I would say... why would you ask an impossible question? With Bardugo's signature, flowing writing, the emotional scenes and heart-pounding action left an even greater impact. There were so many twists and turns, and a final line that put a chill in my bones, that the very smart characters were left scrambling as their worlds were turned upside down. Speaking of characters, I definitely can't choose one. Nikolai is always fun, but a much deeper and more complicated character than his swaggering personality lets on. Zoya was always a hesitant fan favourite for me, but het dialogue with Nikolai, her ferocity, and her intense backstory left me cheering for her in the end. And Nina... Nina just breaks my heart all the time. Seriously, there were some tears during one particular scene, and I can't wait to see what she gets up to next. KING OF SCARS has been hyped for a while, and it lives up to that hype and then some. A beautiful book from cover to cover, this is a book every Grishaverse fan will love, and readers of thrilling dark fantasy will crave more of. My only regret is that I will have to wait another year to see how it all ties together.

    Great overall

    I'm a HUGE Grisha fan, and let me tell you, this story did not disappoint! Coming back into this world after so much time away felt like coming home. Nikolai is smart and sexy, Zoya is tough (and yet, she also has a soft side....who would have known....), and I just love Nina. Honestly, a few of her chapters made me tear up (like Matthias' funeral...I'm not ashamed to admit I shed some tears). My only complaint is the ending. I liked it, don't get me wrong, but I found it a little predictable. I knew from Chapter 1 where she was going to take the ending, and I was right. I like a little mystery in my life! But like I said, I still felt satisfied at the end. I'll definitely be picking up the next one when it comes out (soon? please??)!

    I LOVE it!

    While it might be advisable to read the Grishaverse books that precede King of Scars, it's not necessary, most vital information is included. The characters are rich and flawed and quirky, the plot is intricate although there is a cliffhanger so it isn't a complete story. I'm still giving it 5 stars because the story I did get has left me wanting more.

    Superb storytelling.

    My only disappointment with King of Scars is having to wait for the second, concluding book. I am particularly impressed with the increasing depth of characterization; the reader cannot help but begin to care about these people.
