Siege and Bone by Leigh Bardugo is the second book in the series The Grisha. In this book Mal and Alina are together and they are trying to start a new life for them in another country, but it doesn’t last long, because The Darkling kidnaps them and has something entirely new in store for them.
Alina decides to go back to Ravka to save her country and become leader of the second army and she is set on a course to win the Grisha over. What would happen to her and Mal when she is working all the time and no one is supposed to know about them? Will they make it? Will the Darkling come after them again or are they safe?
This was a wonderful book, it’s a lot different than the first book, because a lot of things change. We meet a few new characters and make new friends, which really only adds to the story.
Alina took the Darkling’s place, but she changes a lot in the second army, which turns out to be really good for the Grisha. In this book we see just how different she is from the Darkling and yet we have to wonder what all of those amplifiers would do to her.
I’m just gonna say this now, you need to read the book! I first thought that the second book wasn’t as good as the first, but then I neared the end and I was so shocked! Go read it! You will only regret not reading it sooner…
What I liked most was to see what a great leader Alina turned out to be. It was really great, but she can’t get all the credit. She had one of the new characters in the book, Nikolai, (you will love his character) mentor her on being a better leader and she learned fast. I don’t think I actually disliked something in Siege and Storm, maybe the fact that the Darkling isn’t featured that much might be one thing I disliked.
I would recommend this book to all fantasy lovers and especially to Harry Potter fans who are on the lookout for something new to read. If you don’t like fantasy (curse you, haha kidding) then I’d say, go read it maybe it would change your mind!
Siege and storm didn’t seem to have any obvious grammar mistakes and therefore I would say it was properly edited. I rate it 5 out of 5 stars, because it was just that good!
