Goodreads Description

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.

My Review

The second book of most trilogies ends up being a place keeper.  It fills up that dreaded middle section without really adding much to the plot.  I did not find that to be the case with Siege and Storm.

Alina is on the run, you are introduced to several new characters, and the plot gets deeper and wider.  I don’t know what else to say.  It truly sucked me in even deeper than I already was.

Wrap-Up

If you liked the first one, you’ll like the second.  Now, off to the third book of the trilogy.
