Book Review – Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Title: Siege and Storm
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Series: The Grisha Trilogy
Released: June 4, 2013


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. She finds starting new is not easy while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. 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.


A fantastic addition to the fantasy genre, The Grisha Trilogy introduces us to a cast of unforgettable characters. They're not perfect, which makes them so easy to love. The story of Alina and Mal swept me up in a continual battle of hope and heartache. And I can't help but love Nikolai and his humor and hope he somehow gets all that he the best way. I also hope that all the lost get their redemption in the last book....Genya, Zoya, David, and even Alina and Mal. The Darkling? I'm not sure how I feel about him...
