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.
In my review of Shadow and Bone, I talked about how I had an OT3: Mal, Alina, and the Darkling. All the ship feelings, so little time. Well, now I have completely forgotten about those two idiot guys, because a new player has arrived and already won the game.
Have any of you read this book? What did you think? If you want to talk spoilers then you should totally tweet/WhatsApp/message me, because I CAN’T GO ON. We can fangirl over Sturmhond together, y/y?
