Publisher Description

See the Grishaverse come to life on screen with the Netflix series, Shadow and Bone. Daring rogue Nikolai finally joins the fold in Season 2 -- covering explosive events of both Siege and Storm and Ruin and Rising -- streaming now!

Enter the Grishaverse with Book Two of the Shadow and Bone Trilogy by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom.

Soldier. Summoner. Saint. Alina Starkov’s power has grown, but not without a price. She is the Sun Summoner—hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Shadow Fold. But she and Mal can’t outrun their enemies for long.

The Darkling is more determined than ever to claim Alina’s magic and use it to take the Ravkan throne. With nowhere else to turn, Alina enlists the help of an infamous privateer and sets out to lead the Grisha army.

But as the truth of Alina's destiny unfolds, she slips deeper into the Darkling’s deadly game of forbidden magic, and further away from her humanity. To save her country, Alina will have to choose between her power and the love she thought would always be her shelter. No victory can come without sacrifice—and only she can face the oncoming storm.

Thinking Face“Honestly...the like first few maybe 5 chapters were good and the last two chapters plus the after chapter were good but the rest just drained me to read, hopefully the third and final book in the shadow And bone series will be better...”

Red Angry Face“I really hated this book... 1 star for Nikolai and thats it. The rest of it was so boring and stupid and painful to get through. Especially when you're in the head of someone as useless, annoying, pretentious, incompetent, rude and annoying brat named Alina Starkov (starkov? Really? sounds like a cringey last name I'd give an oc when i was 11), who for some reason thinks she's smart??!?!! Like girl why so delusional?”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“I loved the first book so I was super excited going into this one. I definitely enjoyed this a lot. The first half of the book definitely kept me interested the whole time and after that there was definitely a slower part more focused on politics and planning but it is definitely vital for the character development and to be able to understand everything. Finally, I’d say the ending was great. Can’t wait to read the last book (:”

Thumbs Up“3.5 stars This was a fun read! Alina is a lot more independent, Mal is super boring, and we meet the lovely Nikolai who is my favourite character so far! And his dynamic with Alina is pretty funny. I mean who doesn’t want to propose to a girl and then be punched in the face? The plot was a bit boring at small points and Alina and Mal can bore me sometimes but the things that happen after she arrives at the Little Palace make up for it! Much more happens when they arrive there and that’s when I got more hooked to the plot. This book was a nice read but I definitely prefer the first book in this series! Tbh Nikolai carried this book + the ending Also, I’m excited to read Six Of Crows when I finish this trilogy because 3 friends of mine keep telling me that it’s amazing and much better than the Shadow And Bone series so yeah hopefully I’ll get around to that soon! I recommend this book series if you like fantasy series that aren’t very intricate.”
