“While I enjoyed Rule of Wolves more than I did it's predecessor, I still feel that it fell short. I'm not sure that I can give much reason or at least specifics on why I didn't love it, so I'll try to be vague while giving you a feel and idea of the book. While this book did a great job exploring the lives of some previous Grishaverse characters, the main conflict(s) felt like they were thrown together for the sake of character/story development rather than natural consequences/happenings. As a type of "sequel" to the events of Shadow and Bone and Crooked Kingdom the story was a bit of a let down. However, as a story set in the Grishaverse, it is, for the most part a four star read. The story is fast-paced, unpredictable, and heart warming, and I greatly appreciated these elements. I do, however feel that the storyline, conflicts, and ending could have been more thought out and cohesive/consistent with the previous books. While some of the elements I was hoping for were not to be seen, I must note my love of Bardugo's writing. Similar to the Six of Crows duology, this books exploration of friendships, (platonic and romantic) traumas, and the human spirit are absolutely brilliant.”
