Teen Review: “Siege and Storm” by Leigh Bardugo

After all their efforts to escape in the first book of the Grisha series, Alina and Mal are taken back by the Darkling. His power has grown stronger, defying the laws of the natural world. The Darkling has a plan to use Mal to find a second Amplifier for Alina. This one is the mythical sea whip. The Darkling’s plans go awry when the notorious privateer’s ship they are on steals Alina and Mal away. Not only are the privateer’s actions surprising, but his hidden identity is, as well. With the help of this “privateer,” Alina decides to take control of the second army, all the Grisha who are left. Now that Alina is in charge, she is finding more and more similarities between herself and the Darkling. Can she save her country and resist the darkness that comes with so much power?
