By Leigh Bardugo
Genre YA Fantasy
Format Ebook

First Sentence
Two weeks we'd been in Cofton, and I was still getting lost.

After really enjoying the first book I decided to jump right into the rest of the series and finish it all at once.

Second books in fantasy series can often feel like filler books but I didn't think this one had that problem. It starts out with a bang and then carries on with the story nicely. While it may have lagged a little for some people I enjoyed the time the author took to develop the characters. I loved seeing them grow.

Speaking of characters...I LOVED Nikolai! I loved his banter with Alina, I loved his sense of humor, his smarts, Agh! I loved him! Every time he and Alina talked I was giggling.

I found this one a nice, rock solid middle book and am half way through book three as I write this. I'm so excited to see how it all ends.


  1. I really, really want to read this series! I'm happy to see you're enjoying it, and enough to binge the series all at once. Must. Read. Soon.

  2. I'm glad you're enjoying this series. Will have to add this to my wishlist.

  3. So nice that the second book actually had purpose! ;D
    Leigh Bardugo is a good author; I like the way she writes.

  4. Glad to hear this was good. I need to read some Bardugo at some point.

  5. I have all of them, still have only read the first one. I need to continue!

  6. I've been meaning to read this book for forever. I just need to get back to it.
