Summary from Goodreads:

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.

There is something so unique about this series.

I absolutely loved the first book. Read the book and watched the Tv Series. Leigh Bardugo took me to a world of fantasy that I was used to, but with a new backdrop that I would have never excepted. It was refreshing, but this book didn't touch me as much as the first book. Lets call it growing pains.

Bardugo is an incredible mastermind with stories, but she took Alina's character and ran her through the mud. Alina wasn't the strong orphan who had something to prove, Now she was a silly girl with no love for life. She was just like all the rest of the characters. Plane and ordinary.

I'm really wishing for the next book to take me back to a wonderful place. Still a good read. I have hope.
