Saturday Stars – 07 Aug 2021 – Nikolai Lantsov (King of Scars & Rule of Wolves)

Well, peeps I’m watching The Suicide Squad (2021) on this tiring Saturday evening and the movie is so bad, it’s like being witness to a train wreck and unable to look away. Lol.

But let’s not digress. Today, I give to you Nikolai Lantsov—privateer, prince charming, demon king.

Saturday Star: Nikolai Lantsov
Book/Series: Siege & Storm, Ruin & Rising, King of Scars, Rule of Wolves – Leigh Bardugo

When I first met Nikolai in Siege & Storm (The Grisha trilogy), I was totally charmed and he became one of my favorite characters in this series. I hadn’t thought it possible to like him even more. Then I read King of Scars and I fell deeper for him. And in Rule of Wolves, there was no resisting him. I was done for.

Reading his POV in King of Scars, there was so much depth to him I couldn’t help but love him. There was a surprising sweetness under all that charming swagger of his. The deeper exploration into his character left me awed and fascinated. You think you understood him but there was so much more to him than he let anyone see.

In Rule of Wolves, flawed and complicated and so brave, he became the best version of himself. Wah, I just love him! I can’t wait to see who they cast as Nikolai in the Netflix’s Shadow & Bone for season 2.
