I must admit that although the storyline was one of the best aspects within this novel because of its complexity, it was also quite messy. There was just so much going on that at times it was quite overwhelming to read. At times it was boring, slow paced and not entertaining up until the last 200 pages when it picked up and got intense with action! The writing was incredible, in-depth world building, battle scenes and politics made everything so much more raw and real. The representation of the LGBTQ+ and Transgender community was effortlessly represented which I always highly appreciate.
All the characters were exceptionally built and flushed out so well. I grew so connected with them all that every pain of theirs was my own to feel which meant I cried a lot while reading from all the emotions. One of my favourites things was seeing some previous characters in the Grishaverse make appearances!! Now the core three: Nikolai was a sarcastic characters who warmed my heart from constantly fighting his inner demon yet always being so charming. Zoya is one of my new favourite baddass women. She is so complex and I loved watching her development as we were able to learn more about her backstory. Nina’s story was the most emotional for me and one I really connected to. I love her so much and by the end couldn’t have been more proud of her for enduring everything she’d been through and finding happiness.
Romance was an element that wasn’t included in the previous book and although it was a very light dose and hardly any moments were shared together, the slow burn and angst between Nikolai and Zoya was amazing. Their friendship, banter, strength and raw vulnerability with each other made for such an warm-hearted endgame.
I found the ending events to be such a perfect yet unpredictable happily ever after. I loved how it brought all the Grisha books together smoothly and made all the individual stories connect in a brilliantly crafted way.
Overall, a perfect yet emotional conclusion. It didn’t like up the SoC Duology for me but it’s still an enjoyable one that is worth the read. HIGHLY RECOMMEND for Grishaverse fans.

I wouldn't advise diving in, but would say you should start with the first book of the first trilogy, Shadow And Bone.
Ravka, Fjerda, and the other nations in this world are very real places to me, something I've only experienced as fully as this with Westeros. There's history, there's depth, there's politics. But it's always driven by character, by the story of individuals, and their plots, heartaches, and triumphs.
The first trilogy lacks a certain depth, I'll admit, but when taken as a whole...?
Go and get lost in the Grishaverse.
adore character arcs come to completion and a satisfying ending is given even as the future is set up.
Fan favourite characters return even if there is the trade Mark bardugo bitter sweetness going on as not every character meets a happy fate or how not every villain is brought to justice.
I couldn’t help but feel that the story is coming to a Crossroads even as further adventures are set up . Confident, well written and assured this was a fantastic highlight in the Grishaverse the fun and action was there as always but there was perhaps even more heart then normal, so rather then spoil I will just heartily recommend happy reading.
Story is good though as always.
