    Alright, it’s happened: I’ve officially become invested in the Grishaverse. And it’s all thanks to this book.

    After being vaguely disappointed by Shadow and Bone, I tried to keep my expectations low as I continued on with the sequel. I guess there was no need for that because, oh boy, was this GOOD. It surpassed the first book in so many ways and I’m kind of in shock by how much more I loved this? I had no idea that Leigh Bardugo was about to defeat second book syndrome but she definitely just d

    Alina - My feelings for Alina have changed dramatically and I now have a lot of love for her. She grew so much as a character, took on a huge leadership role, and we finally got to see her potential. I’m honestly so proud of her, and even though she still isn’t the greatest MC, I truly appreciate how much she’s been been developing as a Grisha and as a person.

    Mal - Meanwhile, all Mal has done is become an overbearing nuisance. Seriously, this dude got on my every last nerve with the way he treated Alina. While I was taking notes for this book, I literally wrote “1 star knocked off for Mal being a pretentious jerk :)” so that’s... saying something, I suppose.

    Nikolai - Without a doubt the BEST thing that has happened to this series. Like, 100% my new favorite. Nikolai is the epitome of everything I love in a character. I have such a soft spot for the sarcastic one’s that secretly have hearts of gold. Every scene with him was just pure entertainment, and he made such an enormous impact on this series and the other characters. This book is worth the read just for him honestly.

    The Darkling - Although he was hardly in this, the scenes with the Darkling were still some of the best. I just find his complexity so interesting, and his newfound power in this was pretty epic. I still think he’s totally evil, and that he really shouldn’t be shipped with Alina now, but his whole character is certainly well-developed.

    The secondary characters - We also spent a little more time with some side characters, and that was great too. I loved that they had more page time and a place in this story. Tamar, Tolya, Genya, David, Zoya, and so many others, are some of my favorites now and I hope to see more of them all.


    World Building Continues to Be Remarkable

    I feel like I spend half my time actually reading this book and the other half studying the map because I’m honestly so intrigued by this world now. Reading this was a much more enjoyable experience after having a better understanding of the world building and the magic system. It’s just so cool how well developed it all is? Although I’m a little mad we had to spend so much time in the palaces in Ravka AGAIN, but at least we finally got to see some more powers being used and such. Still, this world building continues to be impressive and one of the best parts.

    Leigh Bardugo’s Skillful Writing Makes An Appearance

    I trusted that this would happen as these books go on, but I’m so beyond relieved that I was finally able to connect to Bardugo’s writing style. It was such a huge concern of mine before I read this one because I was like... how will I ever fully appreciate the Grishaverse if I’m not loving how it’s written? But alas, I’m now seeing the improvements as I continue this journey. There aren’t as many cliches in the writing, it’s all starting to flow better, and I’m finally starting to see what all the hype for Bardugo is about.

    Overall: Nothing Really Happened in This Book, But I Still Loved It?

    Looking back on all of this, I do realize that the plot was lacking a bit and not a whole lot even happened in this book. It definitely felt like more of a bridge in to book 3, but that’s what I liked about it. Instead of just being thrown in to more action, there was more time to get to know the characters and to build that anticipation for everything to come. Plus, there’s Nikolai, who pretty much redeemed this series anyway.

    This series still isn’t totally excellent and has it’s faults, but all in all, I’m enjoying it so much more than I thought I would. And I’m so excited to see what’s in store for the rest of the Grishaverse.

    And now... we continue !!

    “What is infinite? The universe and the greed of men.” 
    DISAPPOINTMENT!!!

    I didn't like almost half of the book. I couldn't help that.

    WHERE WAS DARKLING??!!! 😭

    >>I expected much better. First half was great. Loved the concept of second amplifier even though I felt betrayed as I thought there was just one. Even more felt betrayed when found out about the third one. But that's fine. I like this whole plot.

    >>I hated Mal more than anything in the book. Yea yea, I understand his reaso ...more

    Holy freaking crap.

    You know when a book is so good... so captivating.. that you cannot find the words to even give it a worthy review? Even now, I find myself without many words to express how much I love this series.

    So I'm just going to leave you with a few reasons this book is totally legit.

    1. PIRATES. Snarky ones.

    2. STEAMPUNK STEAMPUNK STEAMPUNK!!!!

    3. BADASS MAGIC

    4. YES, this book is much darker than the first.

    5. Mind games. Crazy ones. The struggle is real [and swoon worthy]

    how can this book have been so much better than book one and yet still not good

    “You just punched a prince, Alina. I guess we can add one more act of treason to our list.”

    I shook out my sore hand. My knuckles smarted. “First of all, are we so sure he really is a prince? And second, you’re just jealous.”

    “Of course I’m jealous. I thought I was going to get to punch him. That isn’t the point.”


    2 1/2 stars, again. Again, very mixed feelings, so I’m going to start by talking about why this book is ...more

    ____________________

    This might be the biggest let down of the year for me right now.



    As good as the first book was, and as much as I was looking forward to the sequel, I just wasn't feeling it. If you'll forgive me for being a bit blunt, because I hate to say it, but a fair chunk of this aside from the beginning and end was straight up boring. Plot movement is almost totally sacrificed in favor of propping up events that are s

    The Good:

    1. Alina and her inner dark anti-hero

    2. Nikolai

    3. Nikolai's face

    4. Nikolai's clothes

    5. Everything Nikolai said

    6. Everything Nikolai did

    7. The last 10%, in which some stuff actually happened

    The Bad:

    1. Mal

    2. Mal, cause I seriously hate that asshole

    3. The confusing and vague nature of Alina's powers

    4: MAL

    The Ugly:

    1. How oddly fixated I am with this strange series and how invested I am in it despite lukewarm pacing and plotting and holes in the worldbuilding

    “I have loved you all my life, Mal," I whispered through my tears. "There is no end to our story.”



    “Why won’t you leave me alone?” I whispered one night as he hovered behind me while I tried to work at my desk.

    Long minutes passed. I didn’t think he would answer. I even had time to hope he might have gone, until I felt his hand on my shoulder.

    “Then I’d be alone, too," he said, and he stayed the whole night through, till the lamps burned down to nothing.”
