Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up–After narrowly escaping the Darkling at the end of Shadow and Bone (Holt, 2012), Alina and Mal are still on the run. Though many believe her dead, Alina knows he will never stop hunting her, and she is right–it isn't long before the Darkling finds and recaptures both Alina and Mal. Forced onto a boat, the imprisoned couple has little choice but to do as he commands: track a second amplifier so that he can use Alina's twice-amplified powers against Ravka. With the help of a pirate with questionable motives, Alina and Mal escape and seek a third amplifier that Alina hopes will give her the strength to combat the Darkling's increasingly evil power and influence before his dark power becomes unstoppable. As with Shadow and Bone, this is a dark fantasy best for patient readers: Bardugo takes her time developing the plot and keeping readers guessing. World-building and character development are top-notch, and relationships and motives are complex; Alina hungers for more power just as much as the Darkling does. Those who haven't read the previous novel recently may want to brush up as there is little rehashing of its plot. An action-packed, heartbreaking ending will leave teens breathless for the final installment.–Leigh Collazo, Ed Willkie Middle School, Fort Worth, TXα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

After twice narrowly escaping the Darkling—the most powerful Grisha (magician) in the land—Alina and Mal find refuge of a sort at the court of the Ravkan king. While the Darkling creates his inhuman armies and regains his strength, Alina copes with disturbing feelings and visions related to her expanding light-summoning abilities, reassembles her own army of Grisha for the next battle, and tries not to lose a sweetheart who daily grows more emotionally distant. Although one could dive into this series here, readers will enjoy it all the more if they begin with Shadow and Bone (2012). In this hefty follow-up, Alina continues her first-person narrative as she, Mal, and Ravkan Prince Nikolai take center stage, with only brief appearances by the Darkling. Bardugo populates her fully realized world with appealing three-dimensional characters and an involving plot that keeps a steady pace. But she doesn’t skimp on the introspective moments that will bond readers to the main characters and have them tapping their feet impatiently for the concluding volume. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A huge marketing campaign and strong reviews met the first book, and film rights are already set for this one, too. The buzz will be big. Grades 7-12. --Cindy Welch --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars FYI Hardcover Warning
Reviewed in the United States on January 19, 2021
Netflix advertisement is printed on the hardcover sleeve. I was disappointed to learn that what I thought was a remove-able advertisement sticker is actually a permanent eyesore. I had to return all 3 books in series because 2 of the 3 had the logo printed on.

Book two in the Grishaverse sees Alina and Mal return to the Little Palace with a new ally in tow, a notorious privateer who is more than he seems. Together they ready themselves to face off against The Darkling and his new powers that have made him an even bigger threat to Ravka's future. Can Alina stop him?

Okay, so I'd heard this book was slow but I actually enjoyed it. Which is weird because I was also simultaneously annoyed at the fact that The Darkling is barely in this book 🙈 I mean all the hype about this series revolves around him and he was hardly there! This annoyance is clearly due to my questionable attraction to The Darkling 😂
It was nice to see Alina become more comfortable in her powers and I liked seeing her grow a spine. But, despite trying to, I'm just not feeling Alina and Mal they have no chemistry and they don't act like a couple. The saving grace in the character end of things was Nikolai bloody Lantsov 😍 that man!! He's hilarious - most of my tabbed sections were just his sarcastic remarks and jokes! He's also the reason for the fourth star, if I'm honest. I'm looking forward to his books.
I've already started Ruin and Rising and I hope to at least get Six of Crows read before the Netflix series starts.
