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.
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

Pretty positive this was the fastest I've read a book in a long time.
The storyline of this one has been my favorite out of the two so far.
grew so much in this one, which I was so happy to see. She still had
some naive moments but nothing compared to the first one.
really wasn't surprised though that her relationship with Mal didn't
workout. While I would have loved for it to there was no way it was
plausible. Especially since she is somehow seeing the darkling. (I think
I've figured out how thats happening but I will wait to let you know
after I read the third book.)
we did get new characters I surprisingly liked the majority of them. I
think my favorite one was Nikolai, while he is a bit of social
chameleon... okay a lot of one. You can tell he is over compensating for all the rumors about who his father is .
That ending though... Just rip my heart out why don't you.
Genya... poor Genya. My hatred for the darkling at that moment reached a
new high. I did loved seeing David come out of his shell finally.
know that cant be the end of it though. There still has to be more
fighting to happen since she didn't get to finish. I am really worried
for her though and how she is going to deal with having to potentially
relearn certain stuff.
