Leigh Bardugo is back with another adventure set in the magical and dark world of the Grishaverse, the fantasy realm from her incredible Shadow and Bone trilogy, soon to appear on the small screen in a Netflix TV series. King of Scars is the first book in a thrilling new duology following Nikolai Lantsov, the young king of Ravka. A fan-favorite character from Shadow and Bone, privateer-turned-king Nikolai is a survivor — but his most lethal enemy comes from within.
After the brutal and bloody Ravka civil war, Nikolai struggles to maintain the depleted Grisha Army, and to fend off invaders who would strike when the kingdom is most weak. And all of the king's efforts to protect his nation are threatened by a secret he's long kept hidden. Along with a monk and a Grisha Squaller — a Summoner with the ability to manipulate wind — Nikolai must journey to places of profound magic within Ravka, and enter his greatest battle yet...the one he's fighting against himself.

About the book:
King of Scars
Face your demons...or feed them.
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, the young king 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 Squaller, 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.
