Praise for The Shadow and Bone Trilogy:
"This is what fantasy is for." --Laini Taylor for The New York Times on Shadow and Bone
"Set in a fascinating, unique world rich with detail, Shadow and Bone was unlike anything I've ever read. Alina is a clever, sympathetic character I will gladly follow into the next installment--which can't come soon enough!" --Veronica Roth, New York Times-bestselling author of Divergent, on Shadow and Bone
"Filled with lush descriptions, intriguing magic, and plenty of twists, this memorable adventure offers action and intrigue mixed with an undercurrent of romance and danger." --Publishers Weekly on Shadow and Bone
"A heady blend of fantasy, romance, and adventure." --Rick Riordan, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of the Percy Jackson series, on Siege and Storm
"A well-drawn world, full of deceit and mythology, populated by entirely believable characters. Full of truly surprising twists and turns, beautiful imagery and a protagonist it's impossible not to root for, this is a great choice for teenage fans of George R.R. Martin and J.R.R. Tolkien." --RT Book Reviews on Shadow and Bone
"If opener Shadow and Bone was a magical coming-of-age story and middle-volume Siege and Storm was a political thriller, then this third book is an epic quest. . . Every time readers may think she's written herself into a corner, Bardugo pulls off a twist that, while surprising, will keep them turning pages furiously." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on Ruin and Rising

Mal also is very underdeveloped and we don't know much about him other than Alina and him grew up like siblings in the same orphanage, and are best friends.... and (still unrealistically) he's also a love interest that is also very invested in the main character. Other than that "he's very good at tracking people." Okay. How lucky for Alina! He's so bland, he has very little backstory, faults, or anything that would make you otherwise feel anything toward him whatsoever.
This series left me wanting more, but not in a good way.
Shadow & Bone: 4.0 out of 5 stars.
Siege & Storm: 4.2 out of 5 stars
Ruin & Rising: 3.9 out of 5 stars.
I thought this trilogy was a good time. Great world building, good characters, cool magic system/abilities. I recommend this trilogy. Especially if you plan on reading Six of Crows which was amazing. Sets the world up nicely. The ending to this trilogy was satisfying enough.
What I didnt like:
The main character Alina is pretty weak and almost useless through the entire trilogy. Despite having this "epic" ability she never really does anything with it. Someone always has to save the day, every single time. It got frustrating by book 3.
Be ready for a Deus Ex Machina to save the main characters EVERY TIME they are in a hopeless situation, some random person or event saves them and it was always predictable.
The Villain was very strong but chose the dumbest way to accomplish his goals. Someone so powerful could have come up with atleast 3 other solutions that were better than what he tried to do.
I wish this was a Duology instead of a trilogy. A little more action in each book would have helped.
The books are fine, and no missing page or badly printed ones. The poster is amazing.
The only bad thing was the damaged box of the books (see: photo), but it's not a huge problem for me anyway.
The story is absolutely amazing and recommend to anyone interested in magic. :))
