Ruin and Rising is a fantasy action book written by Leigh Bardugo, and was first published by Macmillan on June 17, 2014. The book is the third and final installment in the Grisha trilogy and was preceded by Siege and Storm.

The book follows the protagonist, Alina, who is now leader of the zealots. Her encounters with the ruler, the Darkling, from the previous book, has left her weak and powerless. However, she works to garner new alliances whilst battling old rivalries, all the while trying to find the outlaw prince. Her journey to uncover the Darkling’s secrets will forever change the land of Ravka and question all she ever knew about his reign.

The book has been extremely well received in the fantasy genre, with The Guardian stating it as being “Utterly, extremely bewitching" and The New York Times Book Review concluding "This is what fantasy is for."
