King of Scars (King of Scars #1) by Leigh Bardugo - A Review


Hello everyone!!

Today we are reviewing King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo, the first book in the duology. It is a YA Fantasy and was published in 2019 by Imprint.

King of Scars is about King Nikolai Lantsov and I really liked reading about him. 
We follow the dashing young king, Nikolai Lantsov, who 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. 

I have said it before that I like the writing style of Leigh Bardugo and the world-building she does. Grishaverse is incredible and there are so much more in Grisha history that we learn in this book.
While reading the book I enjoyed more the chapters with Nikolai and Zoya. Zoya has become one of my favourite characters after reading King of Scars. On the other hand I didn't like Nina's chapters and I thought that they weren't necessary to the book. They didn't add something to the plot in my opinion.
That being said the rest of the book was excellent. Nikolai and Zoya's storyline was action-packed and had me turning the pages to see what will happen next. 

The ending was really good and made the whole story more interesting as I honestly wasn't expecting it. 

On to book two, Rule of Wolves, now.

Rating: 4 Stars

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
