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. 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. Goodreads.

“I took a breath. “Your highness—”
“Nikolai,” he corrected. “But I’ve also been known to answer to ‘sweetheart’ or ‘handsome.”
What did I think about the book?
I love it, I love it, I love it…. Do I need to repeat myself?? I finished Shadow and Bone as fast as my schedule could and I continued directly in reading Siege and Storm!!
I am so fucking in love with this series I can’t help but swear ^^ whoops… I’m like so in love it will be a definite re-read series. I want to own multiple editions of the series [just like I own multiple editions of Harry Potter] and I want to see some freaking Funko’s being designed!!
This book continues where Shadow and Bone left off. But I’m admired by the deepness of this book. The storyline grows, the characters grow and the world building gets more detailed and amazing. I can’t even….. You get me if you’ve read this book!!
I love the new characters like Nikolai in this book, he’s a prince and what a prince he is… *swoon*
