Seriously, Leigh Bardugo is one sharp gal. Not only is she a valued contributor to this blog, but her Tumblr is epic, she contributes humorous pearls like this one to places like Tor.com, and somehow, she still makes time to write the amazing Grisha novels! (Thank you, Leigh!)
We all LOVED Shadow and Bone and with Siege and Storm, Leigh has done it again. You will fall in love all over again.
Here’s an excerpt from our own Amie Kaufman’s review:
Are you wondering if there’s room for this trilogy to get more epic? THERE IS.
Are you wondering if you’ll see your favourite characters? YOU WILL.
Up for meeting some incredible new characters you will fall rapidly and deeply in love with? BRACE YOURSELVES.
Looking for a story that will pull you in and refuse to release you until you hit the final page? LOOK NO FURTHER.
Intense, fast-paced, heartbreaking at times and always utterly absorbing, Siege and Storm is everything I was hoping for from the sequel to Shadow and Bone. I loved it.
If you’re like me, your palms are already sweating in anticipation of getting your hands on this book. Just to stoke that anticipation a bit more, here’s the official synopsis:
Darkness never dies.
Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.
The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.
But wait! There’s more! Just when you thought this was the most Ravka-licious day of your life, it just got better. Because not only does Siege and Storm release today, but Leigh Bardugo’s short story, The Too-Clever Fox, a Tor.com original (The Grisha #2.5) releases today, too!
Here are the details on the story:
In Ravka, just because you avoid one trap, it doesn’t mean you’ll escape the next. This story is a companion folk tale to Leigh Bardugo’s upcoming novel, Siege and Storm, the second book in the Grisha Trilogy.
This story is available for your e-reader and you can download it today, along with Siege and Storm.
