About the Book



The first in an intricate, fantasy duology from #1 "New York Times"Dbestselling author Bardugo, set in her familiar Grishaverse.

Book Synopsis



A 2020 LOCUS AWARD FINALIST!

The Grishaverse will be coming to Netflix soon with Shadow and Bone, an original series!

Enter the Grishaverse with the instant #1 New York Times-bestseller King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo, the first book in the King of Scars Duology.

[Bardugo] touches on religion, class, family, love -- all organically, all effortlessly, all cloaked in the weight of a post-war reckoning with the cost (literal and figurative) of surviving the events that shape both people and nations. --NPR

The story exists at an intersection of past and future selves, and in the dawning understanding that what you most fear may be what you most need. --Washington Post

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.

For anybody wondering, it does have the stupid netflix not sticker thing. Also the dust jacket was folded so poorly. It is not placed on the book very well, it's off center, dented, creased & bent along the top from shipping. It just looks cheap. Can't wait to read the actual book though, but I will be returning this copy.
