Summary: 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 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.

My Thoughts: I finished Shadow and Bone a few days ago and dived right into this one! It was just as amazing! Man, I love these books.

We are right back with Mal and Alina on the run! On the run from the Darkling and trying to hide as good as possible. But that doesn’t last very long. He finds them and once again they are taken prisoner.

On a boat. Yep, so not really anywhere to escape too unless they want to swim! Alina feels so helpless.

We are also introduced to a few new characters. Sturmhond. He was my favorite. He’s the captain of this ship and he was so funny and charming at times. I really liked him.

Her relationship with Mal in this one is just as sweet but at times I find myself liking the Darkling more and more and Sturmhond as well.  The buys in these books are hot! And irresistible, how can I choose my favorite?  Mal and Alina are changing but not exactly together. Things aren’t perfect.

All the Darkling wants is the precious Sun Summoner, and he needs her for his goals. Honestly, I would see something coming and then a complete twist would happen so I don’t know what's going to happen in the next one.  It could be anything.
Alina believes in herself that she could lead the second army. She knows she can do it, even when others don’t think so. She has her doubts but deep down, she knows shes up for the task, and it would make things right.

I want to go on and on about this one, but I’ll leave you with this, read this series if you haven’t! You’ll get sucked right in and hopefully enjoy it like I do!

Overall: Loved it! Something about the storytelling, the characters, the plot is awesome! It’s easy to read this in a day even if it is over 400 pages!

Oh Mal, can I choose you? Or should I choose The Darkling? Or what about Sturmhond? Oh decisions, decisions.

Cover: Like it! I like the font.

I must give Bardugo kudos for writing three such attractive guys-all of them appeal to me in different ways although I am still probably a Mal fan at heart (despite the Sturmhond's many charms.)
