who needs to stop procrastinating and just write this damn review?? I do. Right, focus.
So helloooooooo! I finished this book a few days ago, and I’ve been thinking, “ahhhh no i neeeeeed to do this!!!!!!” but waiting a while to share my thoughts has sort of allowed me to collect my opinions a little bit more.
SOOOOOO SIEGE AND STORM!!
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
So incase you didn’t know this is the SECOND book in The Grisha Series and I loved the book of course. Howeverrrrrr, I feel like the book started off really action packed, and ended that way, but the middle flopped a little??
Also, I think that this book was more about gaining a little information and meeting loads of new characters rather than really plot based. The characters that we met were fantastic (I have a new favourite character) and there was a lot more world development and character development especially in this book.
Alina had her battles, obviously, but I feel like the book was more about discovering and feeling the impacts of the events with the darkling that connect the first and last book rather than adding anything much (apart from characters) to the series. I feel like a lot of the conflicts in the book were not always to do with the plot (arguments between characters) and basically Alina trying to find out where she stands after the events with the Darkling.
Alina had changed A LOT since the first book. There’s something much darker about her as she grows into her role as The Summoner and tries to find out where she stands in the world of the Grisha.
I did however really like this book (it may not seem it) because we really got to explore the world and it brought so many things together that we needed to see from the end of the first book and completed that cliffhanger, and then left us on a HUGE cliffhanger which now had me pleading for the third, and final, book. GGGAHHHH it can’t end already!!!!
So that was me trying to rapid fire my way thought that book review rather than blabbing on for days and days boring you all to tears.
So, have you read this book? If so let me know what you think about it!
