Description

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.

Kinda of Falls For the Sophomore Curse

I'm going to admit to a huge ambivalence about this second book in the Grisha series. On the one hand, I am still loving the world and the magic concepts. But then when it comes to the characters and the action sequences, I'm either bored or baffled. Seems like there would be an amazing story here with different people.

In Siege and Storm, Alina and Mal are trying to remain hidden from the Darkling. But double crosses (from both the Darkling and his allies) will force Alina and Mal back to the heart of Ravka. With a new (and interesting) ally, facing the Darkling in the open rather than in hiding may be their only option.

Book two suffers from a couple of sophomore symptoms: 'manufactured' conflict between the two romantic leads, emasculation of the male love interest, a dead dull, bloated middle arc, and recycled storylines from the first book. It was the same themes over again (Darkling capturing Alina and threatening someone she cares about, Alina trusting and getting romantically involved with a stranger, a large section of nothing but Alina moping/learns new responsibilities, then big action at the end) that made for a frustrating book.

But at the same time, there was an attempt at character growth for both Alina and Mal, though one moved forward and the other backward. Yes, every girl in the story wants Mal and every guy in the story seems to want Alina. That gets old and seems to only be there to create jealousy and uncertainty in the Mal-Alina relationship. As such, it made it hard to get into either character. Mal was an elusive character at best in the previous book - now he's practically inscrutable in his insecurity.

The action scenes were also very problematic for me. It seems that none of the Grisha were able to use their powers for anything other than collecting water or making a breeze. Alina can only do a sickle strike with her powers. Even knowing that an army of smoke like creatures are coming, no one seems to bother to create any kind of defense or train to defend/attack those creatures. We get one crazy invention and that's it. I admittedly became really annoyed that all the Grisha and soldiers were so amazingly ineffectual. As well, the Darkling's new power is supposedly life sucking but he seems to be able to summon an entire army just fine, other than looking a bit tired. It just didn't ring true.

There are consequences for those who side with the Darkling. And a few surprises (with hints that Mal is more than he seems) with a trail leading back to the birthplace of Mal and Alina. I'm excited, despite my lukewarm response of this book, to see where Bardugo ends the Trilogy.

The narrator did a good job and felt right for the part of Alina.

Riveting! A Must Listen

There is no "middle book syndrome" here. This one was amazing! I loved the new characters, the action and all the plot twists and turns along the way. I don't want to give away any spoilers here, so I will just simply say this sequel was awesome! The narration was brilliant as well.
This is a must listen and totally worth the credit. Just be sure to read Shadow and Bone first (you won't be disappointed)

5 *huge* stars!!

Aggravating

I spent most of the time yelling at the main characters for being irrational brats. Even the villain made more sense. Mal yelled at everyone for no reason, I think he needed a hug. This book was thoroughly disappointing. The main characters where completely unlikable.

The villain is one of the most likable characters in the series...I was actively rooting for him.

Annoying

Annoying characters. The narrator's S words were so sharp I couldn't listen with headphones. Overall, I'm just listening just to be done with it.

Not as good as I had hoped

Liked the first book, was hoping in the second that the main character would grow a spine. For someone who supposedly has a lot of power she let's people push her around. Love triangle is getting old.

I hate the main character

The book is fine, but the main character drove me up the wall. I spent too much time yelling at her to make up her mind, say something, use her power, stop being useless, etc. My husband was listening with me and quit half way through because he couldn't take it anymore.

Just OK for me

I thought listening to this sequel would be fun. I liked the narrator but felt the story lagged a bit. There was a lot of building up to the impending battle-too much time spent on preparation. Alina's character was frustrating; she was self centered and withheld personal information that alienated her from those she loved. It had some surprises, but overall I felt like I just wanted to get to the end of the book.

I WANT THE PRINCE!

Is it just me?!

Siege and Storm is delightful story. I will be honest I find myself struggling with fantasies a lot of the time. Too many strange names and places to remember and pronounce. This book is an exception for me. It is no fluff ball but it never takes you too deep you get lost. The plot stays on course and the people and places stay to a minimum, which in my opinion is essential to a great fantasy.

Wild adventure, beautiful magic, good vs. evil, and a little bit of love sprinkled in. What else do you need?

The Sun Summoner will suck you in and leave you waiting for more!

p.s. cliffhanger

Love it

Not as good as the first book but in terms of worldbuilding and pushing the story further very nice. Although I missed some action I definitely enjoyed it, we learn more about the main characters and how alina is changing slowly and tries to accept it but is struggling with her new role and what she needs to do to save her people.

A boring superpowergirl story poorly narrated

How can the same author who wrote the crow series underperform so greatly? This story is antagonizingly boring, clueless, and redundant like it was written by a pre-teen girl. Well, this isn't fair. My 9yold dauther can write better stories. The plot is shallower than that of any fairy tale. Its all about: will the poor little girl with the superpowers kiss her guardian hero or rather the mighty prince who spends his time pirating or the handsome badboy who rules an army of monsters and fell in love with her? The orphan is asked all the time to mary this or that prince and cannot decide, because the guys are all so cute. I passed the audio book on to my daugther and even she was bored to death.
