Opinion on Darklina without Mal?
........................................................................................................... so about malzoya, i talked about them before, cause honestly, they are the type of characters who would start with sex, then moved on to friends with benefits, then catch feelings and remove the sex part, because uh-oh what now and then angsty love confession would follow and i adore that about them. literally, these two, my comfort characters - overlooked, hurt, damaged, good people to the core, snippy little shits falling in love and finding that good place with each other? PLS

the grishaverse characters are actually so feral. Kaz stabbing someone’s eye, Nina scalping Brum, Hanne crushing a guy’s heart, Zoya FRYING hundreds of soldiers alive

Zoya: Does your heart ever hurt so much you just want to rip it out and ignore it?
Genya: That’s called feelings, Zoya

For Rule of Wolves (King of Scars #2) by Leigh Bardugo
📕 BLURB 📕⁠⁠
The wolves are circling and a young king will face his greatest challenge in the explosive finale of the King of Scars Duology.⁠
The Demon King. As Fjerda's massive army prepares to invade, Nikolai Lantsov will summon every bit of his ingenuity and charm—and even the monster within—to win this fight.
The Stormwitch. Zoya Nazyalensky embraces her powers to become the weapon her country needs.
The Queen of Mourning. Deep undercover, Nina Zenik risks discovery and death as she wages war on Fjerda from inside its capital.
Together they must find a way to forge a future in the darkness. Or watch a nation fall.⁠
📕 MY TAKE 📕⁠
Hello friends, a book made me cry! What else is new? 💁🏽
My new top 3 Grishaverse books are:
Crooked Kingdom
Six of Crows
Rule of Wolves
Excellent writing, WORLD-BUILDING, and characterization. Nikolai, Zoya, and Nina grow so much in their own chapters! And we've got a couple of new POVs and side-quests to Shu Han and Kerch. The love triangle that I thought was gonna happen?? Non-existent (thank god), and the 2 romantic subplots were handled SO WELL.
I was completely engaged throughout the book. It's very evenly-paced in comparison to King of Scars, it nearly felt like it was a part of the Six of Crows duology. There wasn't a chapter that didn't fill me with anxiety for all of my faves. I also think this is the first time that I saw nearly all of the countries in the Grishaverse connect in this way, and I loved it.
Rule of Wolves was a highly eventful and entertaining wrap-up to the duology. It's one of my new faves and I can't wait for everything that Bardugo has planned. Can we get a heist in Novyi Zem or the Wandering Isles, please?
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (5/5)

Zoya had barely made it through the coronation. She couldn’t help but think of the night the old chapel had fallen, when the Darkling had slaughtered most of the Second Army, the very Grisha he had spent his life claiming he would protect.  ...
King of Scars (Leigh Bardugo)
“... claiming he would protect ...”?! 
And what was he supposed to do, when you betrayed him in middle of war and openly followed his opponent? Gently scold you?! Beyond naïve. It’s called Second ARMY, deserters and traitors are usually executed.

David: Genya and I don't have pet names for each other.
Zoya: Yeah? What do bees make?
David: Beeswax, propolis, pollen, a type of jelly, bee bread-
Zoya: Why do I even bother.

Why is no one talking about that Zoya, Genya, and Alina scene at the end of RoW? Or Zoya and Alina? The way Zoya is not used to the affection her two best friends show her??????? ZOYA AND GENYA??? PLEASE THEYRE ALL SO PURE I WANT TO SCREAM

The more I think about it, the more I relate to Zoya
Being seen as mean all the time
Believing no one loves you
Believing you are not deserving of love
Trying to find a way to accept yourself
Blaming yourself for everything
Not loving yourself
She is so human, the King of Scars duology is more about her coming to terms with who she is and accepting love into her life than it is about Nikolai protecting Ravka tbh and I am more than fine with that

dream come true
Author’s Note: college au, double drabble
Genya had known that going to college would change her. Yet she hadn’t quite expected this kind of change.
Kicking the door closed, stretching out in front of her is the kind of beautiful dream she never thought she could have. 
The summer heat is crawling in from outside, and Alina and Zoya are curled up, the sheets kicked off the bed.
Genya carefully takes her shoes off, tiptoeing to the bed. Alina tends to starfish when sleeping - her arms and legs just stretch out as far as they can, taking up all the space. Zoya is curled against Alina’s side, a leg and an arm thrown across her. 
Alina’s hair is pulled into a bun, and knowing how much she hates straightening it, Genya carefully pulls out the hair tie. Alina sighs softly, but she doesn’t even twitch as Genya runs her hand through her hair.
Zoya stirs, blinking her eyes open. Seeing Genya, she smiles sleepily. “You’re back.” Genya smiles at her, brushing one of her curls out of her face, rubbing her thumb along Zoya’s cheekbone. Her girlfriend hums softly, closing her eyes again.
Genya can’t help but smile at them - they look rather peaceful like this.

Alina: I really want coke I don’t know if I want cocaine or coca cola
The darkling: the only reason I’m taking driver’s ed is because I want to hit people with cars
Nikolai: does anyone want to platonically fuck me
Mal: if you don’t shut up I will bite you
Zoya: I truly couldn’t give less of a shit I didn’t actually hear you I just know I already don’t care
Genya: I may always be sad but. Wait actually there’s no but I’m just constantly sad
David: My life is falling apart but at least I have a nice girlfriend
