Oct 10th.


Andorion (ruineleint) Tentatively in


Kathrine | 1246 comments I'm in too, if I can get a copy of the book by then. I'm having trouble finding the old edition of the book which matches my copy of Shadow and Bone. Darn those cover changes!

Angela Jr. | 995 comments Oh but the new covers are so much prettier 😍 i got those, even though they were more expensive, just because they look so much nicer than the old ones 🤗

I LOVE the new covers, they are gorgeous! I'm just such a perfectionist hahahaha, I want all my series to match (and also be mass market paperback size so they fit with all my other books and series)


Angela Jr. | 995 comments Haha, you would hate my bookshelf! Very few of my series match because i buy most books used and just choose the cheapest ones. All different covers and sizes 😋

I think those kinds of shelves def have their charm too! I kinda shuffle between wanting to have really messy, overstuffed shelves and nice, clean shelves hahahaha

Anyway, I think I found a copy of Siege and Storm that's an older version, so I'm in on this BR!

Katie K | 2266 comments I'm going to join you all in this BR as well ^^

Angela Jr. | 995 comments Starting this one early instead of too late this time :) I'm going to get into it before bed tonight.

Anni | 5048 comments I'm afraid I'll be late for this one. I don't have the copy yet...


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7863 comments I should be roughly on time... 😅


Kathrine | 1246 comments My copies of Siege and Storm and Ruin and Rising both arrived (and they both match my copy of Shadow and Bone!), so I'm definitely joining this

Hahaha this is true! Straight into the action this time.

In fact, (view spoiler) (spoilers through chapter 3!)


Narilka | 3391 comments I'm also 3 chapters in. It feels a tad repetitious though it's moving along quickly. (view spoiler)

Timelord Iain | 18097 comments Mod
I'll be along with my thoughts tomorrow or the day after... reading Alcatraz vs the Knights of Crystallia right now, and will be reading this or Prince Caspian after...


Narilka | 3391 comments And I was right. Through CH 6 (view spoiler)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Chapter 1 and 2 (view spoiler)


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7863 comments Through chapter 7. I love (view spoiler)


Andorion (ruineleint) Chapter 7 done.

While it is interesting that Alina (view spoiler)

I love all the new tech being introduced. So far this book is far better than the last one.


Andorion (ruineleint) 18 chapters.

Ugh. I hate this plot device of not telling people things. (view spoiler)

We are at the same spot and I know what you mean. (view spoiler)

Otherwise, not a lot to comment on other than the very generic, not really a spoiler but tagging anyway, (view spoiler)


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7863 comments I'm up to chapter 11. (view spoiler)

I just finished too! Totally agree with you.

Ooo great point! (view spoiler)


Andorion (ruineleint) Finished.

Overall I felt that what was otherwise a pretty good story was held back by the immature behavious of Mal and Alina.

I strongly feel that Alina should have focused less on her (view spoiler)

I liked this better than the first book though.

Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments No idea what chapter I'm at but I'm onto page 123/299 of my copy so I reckon I'm about 1/3 of the way through. Seriously loving this so far. Usually I don't love 2nd books in a series where there's a revolt as part of the plot as there's usually lots of tedious travelling and fleeing. This book has surprisingly managed to keep my interest despite all the travelling and fleeing.

Nikolai: (view spoiler)

Mal: (view spoiler)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Arkadeb wrote: "Chapter 7 done. ."

Completely agree. (view spoiler)

Agreed! He has so much personality, it's infectious.


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Chapter 13 (view spoiler)


Andorion (ruineleint) Charlie wrote: "Chapter 13 [spoilers removed]"

I would say that 85-95% of the people involved are utter idiots (including Alina).

I like him as well :) I hope he isn't only there so we can have another love triangle 🙈


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments @Anni

There's definitely something magical about Mal's tracking ability. He's not Grisha but maybe something else?
