4.5

i was not expecting to like siege and storm or the entire s&k trilogy that much after reading soc and ck but this was a good read. the action, new characters and plot were very well done. alina’s character was especially more interesting this time around as she adapts to another amplifier & more political responsibility. i was originally going to give this 4 stars but then I read The Tailor - A Genya Story that comes as bonus material and decided this deserves 4.5 stars

! SPOILERS !

”she would rise.”

honestly, this book surprised me with how enthralled it had me, especially with the plot. i went in expecting to hate it because everyone else did, but its only proven to be another favorite of mine. i really loved the character growth in the book. the progression of the plot never felt too slow or too fast to me. it was so easy to read and i loved it.

of course, my favorite part of the whole book was nikolai. he’s simply the perfect book character and i fell in love.

i was a fan of mal for most of the book; however, at the end he started acting selfish when it came to alina. she carried so much ok her shoulders during the whole book and he never even stopped to consider how she felt.

and the darkling - i simply hate him. he’s disgusting, gross, vile, and manipulative. he spent most of the book tormenting alina and making her think she was losing her grip on sanity. i have no clue how people continue to ship them together, especially after he SAs her ?!?!?!?!?!?! nasty gross vile man.

my main take away from this book really was: men should shut up (not nikolai) and alina should girlboss more.
