Siege and Storm
Siege and Storm | Leigh Bardugo
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.

I really can‘t get enough of the Grishaverse. I love every book more than the one before it. This was a solid addition to this trilogy. #ebook #Kindle

Lauranahe I love these books!! And the six of crows. ❤️❤️❤️ 1mo
jenniferajanes @Lauranahe Yes!!! Crooked Kingdom was 🤩😍!!! 1mo
Lauranahe When I read the six of crows books, in my head I have to make them older, at least mid-twenties. Otherwise, I feel a little weird about Kaz being my book boyfriend. 😂 Have you seen fan art of him?? 😍 I do like the guy who plays him on the show. 1mo

jenniferajanes @Lauranahe Perfect! 😂 I haven‘t seen much fan art, and I haven‘t seen the show either. 🙈 1mo
Lauranahe I watched the show first, and really liked it. So then I read shadow and bone book. Halfway through the book, I was getting annoyed. Where is Kaz?? I googled it, and learned he has his own series, and his storyline in the show was a prequel to his series. After that, I was able to enjoy the shadow and bones books. But as soon I finished, I went out and got the six of crows. AND it made me appreciate the show more. (edited) 1mo
jenniferajanes @Lauranahe That‘s awesome! Have you read the King of Scars duology yet? That‘s next for me! And The Lives of Saints, of course! 1mo
Lauranahe No I haven‘t, but I will now! I did like ninth house, and am looking forward to its sequel. 1mo

The story picks up right where it left off with Alina and Mal in hiding and on the run from the Darkling. Alina changes significantly in this book as she claims more of her power. A huge chunk of the book is just them traveling on the road and it was SLOOOW. Great writing, but not as much action in this one. Not until the very end.

It was a little slow in the middle, but there was enough drama between the characters to keep me going and keep me in anticipation. I really enjoyed it and it ended on the perfect cliffhanger to lead me into the final book. The characters are really going through it and I can‘t wait to see what happens…

This book was also good. It takes place across the True Sea with Alina and Mal hiding from the Darkling and his forces. After an encounter with him, they sail wayward to the Bone Road for the second amplifier.
If you enjoyed this book or any in this series, I suggest either the Magnus Chase series or the Kane Chronicles, as both are similar when it comes to their descriptions of different creatures.

I‘m surprised by the low ratings for book 2 in the series ; But then again our reading is a personal experience. I thought it had a slow start but picked up pace after around 100pages ; love the character of Nikolai and the tangled love affairs between Alina , Mal, Zoya and Nikolai , it was pure escapism for me and I personally loved it , now on to the others . Love a series 😆

Fantasy, YA. This is the second book in the series and it does not disappoint. Alina & Mal are forced out of hiding to battle the Darkling and save Ravka whose King & Queen are incompetent. However, their estranged second son is a worthy leader if only he was first in line to the throne. Nickolai joins Alina & Mal in a contentious relationship to save their land, but the Darkling is more powerful than any of them believed possible.

As second books go, this one held it's own against the "second book curse". Alina's narrative drug a few times for me but the story was really pretty good. A lot of times you get romance focused fantasy in YA, but Alina is often too busy being a badass to have time to worry too much about her love interests. I like the change of pace and the tone she sets for younger readers.

I ship Alina/Mal on the run forever. Ruin and Rising up next!

Four stars of YA enjoyment which demanded little of me. A strong middle book in a trilogy, Siege & Storm offers everything you‘d expect, action, sexual tension, betrayal, mystery, plenty of red herrings, all packaged within a pretty well-tested narrative and character arc. A great escapist read.

So I get it. The series is addictive. Thinking back to my 12 year old self, I would have probably been obsessed. I can see the appeal to young readers: it is age appropriate but delves into grown-up issues like pain, loss, sorrow, defeat, love and longing. Young peoole feel all of the above often more acutely than adults whose senses have dulled over the decades. Cannot wait to find out what happens next and have a secret crush on the Darkling. 😳

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I loved “Shadow and Bone,” so I had high hopes—and I was not disappointed! Bardugo allows her universe to become significantly darker than in the first book, introduces a whole new, fantastic, crew of characters, and ends with a real tearjerker. If you didn‘t like the first book, this probably also won‘t be for you, but I found it thrilling from beginning to end.

I think I liked this more the first time around. You can see Alina trying to come into her own more which I great but she's still very much in the background when it comes to Mal. I'm hoping she finds her way to becoming the badass I can see her being 🤷‍♀️

This was my #doubkespin back in February or something. Happy to finally have it checked off the list 🤣

I was unhappy with Alina‘s choice at the end till I saw her purpose. Now she has 3 men trying to persuade her they are the one and only for her…all while she‘s trying to save the world. A good picture of how we try to find a balance of the good and wicked in ourselves.

I enjoyed this book way more than the first one, probably because there is way less world-building and a lot more plot in this one. I also really liked the new characters that were introduced in this book. My biggest complaint with this book (and probably the series as a whole) is the fact that the main love interest is so busy being a whiny, jealous brat that it makes no sense why the main character continues to be in love with him.

I actually struggled to get into this book, but by the middle I was hooked. I liked a lot of the characters who were introduced in this part of the story, and all the characters from the previous book had some character development. I am actually surprised how emotionally real those characters are. They had human responses to trying circumstances. Unlike most heroes, they weren't perfect.

A great book to lead us into the last part of the trilogy.

A good continuation from the first book. Is it just me or is this book very fast paced?
It was a lot of things happening all at once.
But I appreciate the author‘s bleak outlook on the story. Where there needs to be drastic changes, she brings it with no mercy. As harsh as it sounds, it‘s necessary for the storyline. (Spoiler in the comments) So far I like where the story‘s going.
Rating: 4/5

“Why won‘t you leave me alone?” I whispered one night as he hovered behind me while I tried to work at my desk.

Long minutes passed. I didn‘t think he would answer. I even had time to hope he might have gone, until I felt his hand on my shoulder.

“Then I‘d be alone, too,“ he said, and he stayed the whole night through, till the lamps burned down to nothing.”

This week I entered the Grishaverse. Listened to Shadow and Bone then jumped right into Seige and Storm. Fortunately I also have a Library copy of this one to check the map and read when I take a break.

Enjoyed this 2nd book so much more than 1st. Great plot twist that really add to the adventure. Typical 2nd book of a Trilogy Cliffhanger. Joy of being late to the party already have Ruin and Rising for next week's #listenwhileyouwork 👩🏻‍🌾🎧📖

Book 2. I didn‘t like this one as much as the first one. The beginning was so full of action as well as the last 100 pages. But I think it was repetitive in the middle about the strategies they were going to use. Sometimes struggled to continue with the story. We discussed the book in our informal book club “The Forgotten Book Club”. We had the same impression. It was so-so for me but obviously necessary to continue with the series. 3.4⭐️

⭐⭐⭐ lot of stuff happens in this. Alina and Mal's relationship is tested. Alina has to make some hard choices. She has yet to learn a lot about her powers and yet to grow as a confident and a mature leader. Politics vs religion is a strong theme.
Many plots were predictable but m eager to know the ending in the third book. A pleasant read.
