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.

Siege and Storm is the second book in The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. I'm really loving the series so far, it is the right book at the right time kind of thing. I have been spoiled on the love interest who will end up with Alina and that is kind of a shame, it would have been nice to hope she would end up with someone else, now I'm really forcing myself to like him, which is a new experience for me.
However, I do still like all of the characters even though some of them annoy me at times. Leigh Bardugo has a gift of creating very interesting and likeable characters and I can't wait to read Six of Crows as well, as I hear that's even better than The Grisha Trilogy. I'm definitely glad I bought the series and I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in a young adult fantasy series.
For a second book in the series this one was pretty good, I'm really excited tp see how the third book will turn out. I gave Siege and Storm 5 out of 5 stars.
