Siege and Storm
Siege and Storm - Leigh Bardugo Actual rating: 4.5 Stars

This book was was just shy of the excellence of book one in the series. The only negative thing I can say about it is that the plot lagged abit around the middle. As far as the rest it was all well done, well written and filled with Ms. Bardugo's exquisite imagery and drama. One area that she excells in is writing blockbuster finishes for each book, rather than just for the final book in a series. This book was no exception. I can't even imagine the plot twists and turns she has woven into the 3rd and final book of this series and look forward to experiencing each and every one of them. I have to say I sure hope she manages to have Mal and Alina end up together by the end. Mal is just perfect, if he were real I fall for him in a heartbeat... but falling for fictional characters never ends well... so I guess I just have to hope he and Alina make it in the end. This second book was an enthralling, exciting and very very satisfying read!

Just as fantastic as the first book in the series!!!!!
Siege and Storm - Leigh Bardugo

I really enjoyed this book just as much as the first book Shadow and Bone. I was happy that there was more Mal then the Darkling. Even though Mal at times really did stupid things that wanted to make me throw things, I still understand him and his actions more than I do the Darkling. I also really love Nikolai/Sturmhond, a whole lot even though I wasn't so sure about him in the very beginning, but boy did he really grow on me in the end. I thought parts were boring but not so bad that I would take any stars away from it. So of course its getting 5*stars from me. I really can't see how the series end, and yes I am reading the last book, Ruin and Rising right now. So hopefully I will be finished with this one in a few days. 

One of my book goals for 2018, is to start reading more slowly, so I am trying not to finish a book in one day. Because usually if I love a book a whole lot, I can finish the book in a day. So far I am doing a pretty great job. Of course if the book isn't very long I will of course most likely finish in a day, especially if I am really enjoying the storyline.

Book review : Siege and storm Leigh bardugo
Siege and Storm - Leigh Bardugo

May 5- September 28

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. Book one, Shadow and Bone, is a New York Times bestseller, and book 3, Ruin and Rising, is an Amazon Best Book of the Year and a USA Today bestseller. This title has Common Core connections, and this deluxe paperback edition features bonus materials like an interview with Leigh Bardugo, a bonus short story, "The Tailor," and more. 

Review : I enjoyed the second book a lot Mal and Alina are on the run from the darkling but he finds them and are taken to a ship where we meet some interesting characters Toyla and Tamar and Stumhold who is one of my favorite characters of this series . Alina gets the second amplifier Stumhold helps Alina and Mal escape the darkling . Alina puts on the second amplifer Stumhold takes Alina and Mal to the palace and it turns out he's a prince who was using a disguise he's prince Nickoli and then Alina punches him . Alina is putting together a team to distroy the darkling and keep ravka safe . Alina keeps seeing the darkling and thinks she's loosing her mind . But the darkling is back and a lot of people die but she agrees to go with him and she tries to kill him but she almost dies but she doesn't I love this series and writing is very magical .
Quotes :
Watch yourself, Nikolai,” Mal said softly. “Princes bleed just like other men.”
Nikolai plucked an invisible piece of dust from his sleeve. “Yes,” he said. “They just do it in better clothes.”

The less you say, the more weight your words will carry.”

“Of course not," said Sturmhond. "Anything worth doing always starts as a bad idea.”

I took a breath. “Your highness—”
“Nikolai,” he corrected. “But I’ve also been known to answer to ‘sweetheart’ or ‘handsome.

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

And there's no way I'm leaving you alone with Prince Perfect."
"So you don't trust me to resist his charms?"
"I don't even trust myself. I've never seen anyone work a crowd the way he does. I'm pretty sure the rocks and trees are getting ready to swear fealty to him.”

“You heard Prince Perfect," Mal said, and joined us at the table. Nikolai grinned. "I've had a lot of nicknames, but that one is easily the most accurate.

Mal snickered.
"What's so funny?"
"I just pictured the Darkling being cornered by a sweaty duchess trying to have her way with him.”

“Promise not to kick me again, and I'll promise not to kiss you again," he said.
"I only kicked you because you kissed me!

“Scars made good reminders.”

You just punched a prince, Alina. I guess we can add one more act of treason to our list.”
I shook out my sore hand. My knuckles smarted. “First of all, are we so sure he really is a prince? And second, you’re just jealous.”
“Of course I’m jealous. I thought I was going to get to punch him. That isn’t the point.

So what did Jes say?' I asked again, when my brain felt a bit less scrambled.
'He said I should take good care of you.'
'That's all?'
Mal cleared his throat. 'And . . . he said he would pray to the God of Work to heal your affliction.'
'My what?'
'I many have told him that you have a goiter.'
I stumbled. 'I beg your pardon?'
'Well, I had to explain why you were always clinging to that scarf.'
I dropped my hand. I'd been doing it again without even realizing.
'So you told him I had a goiter?' I whispered incredulously.
'I had to say something. And it makes you quite a tragic figure. Pretty girl, giant growth, you know.'
I punched him hard in the arm.
'Ow! Hey, in some countries, goiters are considered very fashionable.'
'Do they like eunuchs, too? Because I can arrange that.'
'So bloodthirsty!'
'My goiter makes me cranky
