Siege and Storm (Grisha Trilogy #2)by Leigh Bardugo
Synopses & Reviews
Darkness never dies.
Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can't outrun her past or her destiny for long.
The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling's game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her — or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.
"Bardugo populates her fully realized world with appealing three dimensional characters and an involving plot that keeps a steady pace....The buzz will be big." Booklist
"Bardugo builds on strengths she brought to the first volume, including a richly crafted fantasy world with its own twist on magic, a surfeit of handsome leading men, and plenty of teen-appropriate romantic angst." The Horn Book
"Scheming and action carry readers at a breathless pace to an end that may surprise them and will definitely leave them panting for the series conclusion." Kirkus Reviews
Alina and Mal are trying to make their way in the New World... but it's not easy. Alina has to hide her true nature, and neither of them can quite forget the past.
When the Darkling shows up again, with new and terrifying powers, it's like something out of a nightmare. Soon they're caught up in a whirlwind search for another amplifier, the elusive sea whip. But once they find it, can they keep it out of the Darkling's hands? And can they trust Sturmhond, the privateer who is so mysteriously intent on helping them?
Alina finally returns to Ravka to lead the Grisha against the Darkling. But as she sits where the Darkling once sat, sleeps where he slept, and leads the very people he once led, she finds herself wondering if she isn't playing right into his hands, after all.
