Review: King of Scars

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Genre: Fantasy


Face your demons…or feed them. The dashing young king, Nikolai Lantsov, has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war―and he intends to keep it that way. Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, Nikolai must find a way to refill Ravka’s coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army.

Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha general, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried―and some wounds aren’t meant to heal


So I have read The Shadow and Bone series and The Six of Crows Duology. Both were ok to me. But I keep coming back to the Grishaverse. I don’t know why I just feel like one of these books is going to really wow me because of all the love I see for them. This book was good but not great. I loved Nikolai’s character so I was excited to read his story. But like all the other books they are told from multiple POV. So you get snippets of each. This book is long and honestly some parts drug on to me. I wasn’t invested in some of the POV. I think what keeps me coming back is I do enjoy this world and most of the characters. The cliffhanger at the end though clinched me into wanting to read the next book of course! Overall I am giving it 4 ⭐️ because I enjoy the world and some of the characters storylines.
