It begins with a simple farm boy, youngest of a crop of brothers, sent out into the storm to close a barn door that has blown open in the wind. Inside, there's a monster waiting for him.
It ends ... later. In a very different place. With very different people. But the monster? It's still there.
King of Scars, the latest from Leigh Bardugo and her Grishaverse, is a story all about monstrousness — about the regrets, the resentments, the terrible things that live inside everyone and what happens when those things come out to play.
