Its unusual for me to like the second book in a trilogy as much if not more than the first. But, Leigh Bardugo has managed to capture my heart with the Grisha trilogy. I love the world, the writing and most of all the characters. Not to mention the narrator for this audio series is fantastic.
Alina now feels the weight of the Darkling on her. But her and Mal are on the run trying to escape. But that doesn't prove easily. Her power is growing fast as she returns to her home country to try and defeat the darkness. Will she be able to? Or will she fall in the fold and let it overcome her?
I actually think my favorite character may be the Darkling. He is ever so deliciously creepy. Of course, I love the relationship between Mal and Alina even more. I'm already super pumped to listen to the third one and really hope I love the ending.
Definitely a new favorite series. We'll see if its even my favorite of 2016.
