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.

After reading Shadows and Bone, I was ready to strangle this book alive. HAHA. If you have read the first book, and of course my review of it, you would have realised that I got so angry in that book. BECAUSE. OF. THE. DARKLING. I mean, my God, that guy was such a hottie. But he turned out to be evil. *heart gets crushed into a thousand billion pieces*

So, yes, I was angry again in this book HAHA. But please don’t avoid this book. Read it, because once you’ve read Shadow and Bone, you neeed to know what happened. This book is amazing, and it is listed as one of my favorite series. In this story, both Alina and Mal were tested. Things became more crazy, sides have to be chosen. But what I liked about this book better than the first was that Alina was finally portrayed as a HUMAN. Throughout it all, she stumbled and fell and made mistakes, like any other normal human being. It doesn’t matter that she was the sole heroine destined to save the country. She made mistakes too, and that was being addressed in this book.

The Darkling. Well, the Darkling is bigger, better, stronger and sometimes even I forget that he is evil sigh. Is there still a chance that he’s just misunderstood? No? SIGH. But well, the Darkling is scarier, and as much as I hate that I love him, you gotta admit that this series made a fine point. Sometimes, the most handsome one could be the bad guy, and even when you know he is a bad guy, that doesn’t make it any easier to get away.

But anyway, GO AHEAD, read this book. I’ll be here waiting for your cry of frustrations heh.
