Summary

King of Scars


A 2020 LOCUS AWARD FINALIST! See the Grishaverse come to life on screen with Shadow and Bone , now a Netflix 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. An Imprint Book Read all the books in the Grishaverse!

Impossible to put down." -- USA Today "There's a level of emotional and historical sophistication within Bardugo's original epic fantasy that sets it apart." -- Vanity Fair "Unlike anything I've ever read." --Veronica Roth, bestselling author of Divergent "Bardugo crafts a first-rate adventure, a poignant romance, and an intriguing mystery!" --Rick Riordan, bestselling author of the Percy Jackson series
