The capital has fallen. The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne. Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army. Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives. Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova's amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.

THIS BOOK. I don't know how to write a review for it (I keep putting it off and doing everything else instead of writing my thoughts down.) I'm just gonna start at the beginning and work my way to end of the story, the part I don't know how to feel about yet. No summary, cause spoilers. Also, this...
I love this whole awesome and amazing series. I am so sorry to say that I still didn't like the Darkling at all, I did like the certain something that we found out about him. WOW I wasn't expecting what happened to Nick, that's what I call him, at all. And what we found out about Mal, I kind of thou...
Spoiler warning! This is the third book in the Grisha trilogy and therefore NOT the place to start reading. This review will contain at least some minor spoilers for the previous books in the series, and who starts a trilogy with the third book anyway? Go read from the beginning, starting with Shado...
