Siege and Storm, by Leigh Bardugo

adventurous reflective slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Plot
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


ehhhh still trying to disentangle what i liked and what i didn't. plot pacing got worse, the characters i'd loved in the first book were mostly offscreen, the girl-on-girl hate and poor incorporation of russian culture into the worldbuilding killed me. but the writing got more profound, and i found myself feeling and grieving with alina, especially at the end.
