Review: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

The second book in The Grisha Trilogy by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Six of Crows.

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.

Siege and Storm is the second book in The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. Book one, Shadow and Bone, is a New York Times bestseller, and book 3, Ruin and Rising, is an Amazon Best Book of the Year and a USA Today bestseller. This title has Common Core connections, and this deluxe paperback edition features bonus materials like an interview with Leigh Bardugo, a bonus short story, "The Tailor," and more.

 My thoughts

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

wow, I am struggling with this book. It is so hard for me to read it. Everything went well until we all met Nikolai, after that I am having a hard time to keep interest in the story. It is sooooo slow and boring . It is taking me too long to finish this. The Darkling is the life of the story and without him in it there is not story for me.
Alina... I do not like her in this book.
Mal... I feel bad for him.
I am so happy that I am done with this book! and I meant it in a bad way. It took me a lot of days to finish it because I could not get into it. I felt like 70% of the book was just boring and very slow. I felt like a lot of the stuff that the author wrote was just to fill the book and make it big.
The beginning and the end were good because, of course, The Darkling was in it.
The writing was good but still the book was boring.

  1. I read the series and admittedly, I can't remember much. I know I enjoyed them. Not my favorites but easy reads. Do you think you'll read the third?
