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, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can't outrun her past or her destiny for long.

The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying 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 dark magic and control-and farther away from Mal. Now, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and her heart, or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.

I read the sneak peak and it looks like its gonna be another amazing book

Shadow and Bone, though I didn't review it, gets an easy five stars. That being said, I was a bit apprehensive about reading this excerpt. Surely nothing could trump the beauty and artistry of Shadow and Bone. How could the fascinating characterizations continue with everything we adored from the first book and avoid becoming stale? And why, most importantly, can't a particular character have a whole new series to himself? (i.e. the Darkling, of course) But I was pleased with the sneak peak we are alotted. And though I can definitely sense a different tone than Shadow and Bone's, I decided it would be fantastic (at which point I hit myself over the head and exclaimed. Duh! It's Leigh Bardugo!)

This second book in the Grisha trilogy picks up about where Shadow and Bone left off. Whew this book is quite the ride! Sooo much happens and not nearly enough of it good. It just pulled at my heart and held my attention like few books do. I really didn't want to put it down! After that ending (oh my god) the wait to Ruin and Rising is going to be WAY too long. The book was just absolutely amazing and there was just the right amount of angst (too much makes me feel like I'm drowning in it but in this book it was well placed and well deserved) as well as adventure, danger, the romance and the sudden turn of events towards the end of the book both almost killed me. So long story short, here you have another person anxiously waiting for 2014 and the release of Ruin and Rising. I really would recommend this Grisha trilogy to everyone, it's shaping up to be one of my favorite series/trilogies. But maybe wait til all 3 books are out so there's minimal suffering from waiting to get your hands on the next book. The suffering from the content of the book will definitely be enough. Oh my babies! I look forward to seeing you again in Ruin and Rising! Off to read the novellas to hopefully tide me over a little til it's release :)
