Grisha series, bk 3. Indigo, 2014. ISBN 9781780621166
(Age: 13+) Recommended. 2014 YALSA Teens' Top Ten. The final episode of The Grisha series, brings to a dramatic climax the story that was begun in Shadow and bone and Siege and storm.
The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne and the Apparat forces Alina to stay under his protection, with many zealots worshipping her as a Saint. But she knows that she must hunt for the elusive firebird and find the missing Prince, so that the kingdom can be saved. Her loyalties are stretched to the limit, and she doesn't know whether she needs to break her link to Mal.
Fans of the series will be thrilled with the powerful final book, with its action, character development and the romance and angst of it all.
