Once again, Leigh Bardugo has done it and produced a fantastic and gripping piece of fantastical fiction for the world to enjoy.

The action definitely heats up in this one with the introduction of Sturmhond and the whole Pirates, nichevo’ya, and Rusalye arcs.

It’s so wonderful to dive back into the mind of Alina Starkov as she tries to escape the dark forces after her and her strained relationship with her old friends. While it was a little slower pace-wise than Shadow and Bone it was still wonderfully written and I absolutely loved the new characters we got to meet in this novel.

The ending also was insane and I cannot wait to finish Ruin and Rising and find out what happens!

The book started a bit slow and entertaining, then Mal got really annoying and I didn’t like the first-person-story-telling too much, as the protagonist wasn’t really having the best perspective. (My critique might be harsh, is this is young adult fantasy and the thoughts just don’t to me anymore) 

Towards the end, I liked it better, especially the last 20%. 
Will finish the trilogy right away.
