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.

I finally got a chance to read this book and WOW. I’m blown away and just don’t even know how to start this review.

Plot: This story takes place right after the last book so I strongly recommend you pick up the first book. If you have read the first book be prepared to be blown away. There is so much emotion and drama going on I can hardly contain myself. I seriously just want to squeal! It’s so exciting!!!!

Greisha/Magic/Darkling: GAH! So much happens here. I want to say more but I’m afraid that I will give it away. Just know that there are many new characters/powers and growth in the story. You will never be bored. Trust me.

Ending: HOLY! WOW! AMAZING! CAN I READ IT ONE MORE TIME AND NOT HAVE A HEART ATTACK!! The ending is just crazy. So may revelations…so many decisions that need to be made. Just so many FEELS!!!

*Big Breathe* Just go era the book and you will be utterly satisfied yet wanting more. Siege and Storm is sensational!

I give it 5 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    Have heard such great things about this book, and I absolutely LOVED S&B, I just haven’t gotten around to reading it.

    I’m so glad this book gave you all the feels.

    It really is amazing, isn’t it? Her writing is gorgeous, and I loved the feel of the whole thing. Plus, DARKLING (good, bad and everything in between. Plus, HOT!).

    YEAH SAVY!!!!! Wasn’t this just amazing! I may have wanted to throttle Mal for a certain something, but other than that I just loved this book. And that ending was brutal. I need Ruin & Rising immediately:)

      OMG!! I know. It took me a lot of will power to keep reading without wanting to throw the book every time Mal brought up his feelings.

  4. I have this audio and I can’t wait to start it! Oh you loved it so much I’m bumping it up on my audio listen list!
