**spoiler alert** I have two issues with this book one being that Nikolai and Alina did not end up together. I loved Nikolai more than I loved the Darkling. My second is that this book was incredibly slow. I really had to power through it. I just felt like I was reading the same situation on repeat until the last 100 or so pages of the book ( )

I definitely enjoyed this more than the first book so that was exciting! I'm going to admit that most of the characters I didn't love in the first book and I don't really like them any more now that I've read the second book but I do appreciate them more as interesting characters. I still don't love Mal as a love interest. I have a really hard time really liking love interest who are people that I would never date and I would never date Mal. He seems like he's very controlling of Alina and that he doesn't trust her to the point where she keeps important facts from him. He's a fine character and he clearly cares about her and I know she was in love with him for a long time but I honestly think they'd be better as friends. A lot of this book dealt with relationship drama which I really didn't like. I liked every plot point beside the relationship stuff but that stuff was so much of the book. I just really hate love triangles and you had Mal, Nikolai, and the Darkling all looking for Alina's attention. It was really frustrating since I hate all of them as love interests. Besides the relationship stuff though I did like the plot more. It is so interesting so see Alina deal with her increasing powers. I actually liked the ending a lot in this book which makes me very excited to read the third and final book. ( )

I like the idea that your beauty/health/etc. is tied to using your power - you can't keep something that essential to you repressed for so long without consequences (though the fact that it sent Alina into another self-doubt spiral about how she's not good enough for Mal was silly). And I liked the fact that the Darkling found Alina and Mal with basically no effort (he has had hundreds of years of experience on you, Alina! You think keeping low and in a cheap boarding house is good enough?) and that Alina knew she was outmatched but didn't whine about it too much.

What I hate, though, and have always hated and will always hate, is that in YA and middle grade novels, the boy is allowed experience and the pleasure of having "tumbled" other girls while the female (main characters) are so "plain" that they never catch anybody's eye other than the one guy who's had them all. Girls are allowed to be confident in their sexuality! There's nothing wrong if a girl has "tumbled" and enjoyed it just as much as her male friends! If you're going to put that specifically in your book in regards to male characters, there's nothing scandalous in regards to the same thing applying to your female ones. Aline has kissed two guys (Mal and the Darkling) and been the subject of unwanted advances, whereas Mal has been catching eyes and running around for as long as she can remember. It's almost a power difference - he knows what he wants and what he likes and how to get it, but here's Alina, waiting, pining purely for the wayword boy to settle down and she'll never know anything else.

Otherwise. I like Nikolai and the twins - complex characters with hidden and understandable motivations that determine their actions (though, again, Botkin bringing up the fact that Tamar will never marry and Marie dying - why are you so afraid to sexualize your female characters Leigh Bardugo??), and Alina's struggle with her hunger for power and her ultimate choice choice where she attempts to sacrifice herself to take down the Darkling (though I'll always be peeved when a character "in love" makes a stupid selfish decision that leaves everyone worse off). ( )

A solid follow-up to Shadow and Bone. If this book has a flaw, it's that the story meanders and feels drawn out, then plenty of action and movement occurs in the last few pages. Still, this book kept me interested throughout and it turned out to be a faster read than I had anticipated. As the middle book in a trilogy often does, this one has unanswered questions and something of a cliffhanger, so I am ready to dive right into the sequel. ( )

The second book in the Shadow and Bone trilogy. Once again proving that the second book in a trilogy is all about the set up for the third or a huge filler for the whole series.

This sequel to Shadow and Bone is about Alina and Mal fleeing from Ravka after the events of the previous book. After a couple of dangerous trips across seas and the fold they find themselves on Ravka ground again. Alina has an interest in 3 mythical beast. One of them they already met in book 1. She get's more and more obsessed with the idea of amplifying her powers to finally defeat The Darkling. She must prove herself a great leader of Grisha to stop him.

So this middle book was just meh. I have a profound understanding that the middle book in a trilogy can't be the action packed or as story driven as the first or last book. But having a middle book gives so much time to explore the world and having great characters arcs. None of that happened for me in this book. The first 100 pages were really good with action packed scenes and a pretty clear path what would lie ahead. After that the book became a day in the life log where everything that was happing wasn't that interesting. Alina made more annoying statements that I would like to admit. Mal wasn't giving the right amount of time to explore his character here. I mean I like that he has to find a way in coping in such a different environment by having him turn into a alcoholic brut in a couple 10 to 20 pages is just too fast. The Darkling wasn't really featured in this one so he felt a bit underwhelming as a villain. He wasn't given enough time to be bad and fucking things up so to say. The edition of Nickolai was a welcome suprise. To be honest I think he was my favourite part of Siege and Storm. Even so much that I now have an interest in picking up King Of Scars which wasn't present before. While I was reading I couldn't stop thinking about how much this world made me think of A Darker Shade Of Magic. Both series have awesome ideas that could be turned into great novels. Only to have them both not live up to their full potential. The ending was a little so so in my taste. It felt a bit rushed and right before the battle begins I couldn't beleave I only had 50 pages left to read.

Overal an okay series. Eventhough this one was just meh I'm still interested in what will happen in book 3. ( )
