Siege and Storm

Fantasy
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I absolutely loved the writing in this book. It was a little slow in certain places but the parts that were faster were packed with action, intrigue and plot twists that kept me captivated.

The addition of new characters really helped with the flow and I liked their different personalities and their roles.

This book was just as emotional as the first and overall I enjoyed it just as much. I'm looking forward to reading the next book.

I liked it...just not sure I “really liked it”. I did really enjoy the new characters. The love part(s) was frustrating. I do enjoy this world and I am excited about book 3.

Can’t really say much happened in this book because it didn’t. I feel like the whole second amplifier plot line could’ve been carried out a lot more than the first 20% of the book (if it even lasted that). The rest after that felt a bit pointless.

Alina’s characters becoming a bit darker through this, mal just fades into the background because let’s face it he ain’t bringing much to the story, the darkling barely exists and Nikolai carries the whole book.

It was pretty good, but I definitely liked the first book better.

I did not like this book very much. It was hard to get through and it felt repeatedly.
I like Alina less in this book than the first. I don’t think her character has developed in a good way. She seems arrogant and obsessed with finding the third amplifier.
Alina’s and Mal’s fights broke me. I thought the argues were annoying and caused by bad communication, but I do (some how) understand their situation and their dilemma.
The ending was weird and I hate what he did against Genya.
