Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo Review

“I have loved you all my life, Mal. There is no end to our story.”

We were left off on a cliffhanger from Shadow and Bone and seriously, the beginning of Siege and Storm was great. Then we got to the middle and I thought the middle would never end. It dragged on a whole lot and it made me struggle through the book.

So you had action, never ending boredom, a smidge of action. This is another review where I can’t say much without giving stuff away, so I am keeping it short. Just know that it’s slower than book one but it is an important book to the series. Something else to note about the book, do NOT trust anyone.

I think I might start book 3 today. We will see.

Synopsis (Credit: Goodreads)

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.
