Review: King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo


Bare with me here, I’m not sure where to begin. I enjoyed this book. A lot more than I thought I would. But yet, at the same time, not as much as I’d hoped. A lot happened and yet nothing really changed. I mean something did, but I felt that the whole point of the story never changed. Clear as mud, right?

I love Nikolai and his snark. After finishing this, I kinda wanna reread the Grisha again just to get more from him. He really was fun and he deserves all the best. And I’m still holding out hope that the one thing I want him to get he gets.

I didn’t care for Nina or her story. Sorry but it’s true. I’ll just say, I liked her more in the beginning, when she was still working through some things. She felt real then. Towards the end of this she changed and I just didn’t care. It felt off somehow. I found myself skimming her parts a bit. Since I’m being honest, her story line feels like it’s going in a direction that makes no sense to me. I could be way off base here, but hopefully I’m reading too much into things.

I loved the Grisha books way more than the Six of Crows so I was hoping for more of them. This book seemed like a bridge to bring them both together, which is FINE, but that’s not exactly what I wanted. But I’m not the author so I don’t make the calls. I will definitely read the next one because I am super intrigued with how this ended. It was not a surprise to me, but it was wild. And I mean W.I.L.D.

So now we wait…
