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.
“Following up on a strong debut is no easy task, but with Siege and Storm, Leigh Bardugo delivers a heady blend of fantasy, romance, and adventure. The stakes are higher, the drama more intense, and the characters even more compelling. With its epic sweep and brilliant re-imagining of Russian history, the Grisha Trilogy reads like Anna Karenina with magic.” –New York Times bestselling author, Rick Riordan
“Scheming and action carry readers at a breathless pace to an end that may surprise them and will definitely leave them panting for the series’ conclusion.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Bardugo populates her fully realized world with appealing threedimensional characters and an involving plot that keeps a steady pace. . . The buzz will be big.”–Booklist
“Bardugo builds on strengths she brought to the first volume, including a richly crafted fantasy world with its own twist on magic, a surfeit of handsome leading men, and plenty of teen-appropriate romantic angst.”
—The Horn Book
