      Summary: 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.

Booklist Reviews 2013 April #2

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. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Fall

In this sequel to Shadow and Bone, love interests Alina and Mal are running from an evil Grisha who wants Alina's sun-summoning ability for his own use. Bardugo builds on strengths she brought to the first volume, including a richly crafted fantasy world with its own twist on magic, a surfeit of handsome leading men, and plenty of teen-appropriate romantic angst.

Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2013 #3

In this sequel to Shadow and Bone (rev. 7/12), love interests Alina and Mal are running from the Darkling, an evil Grisha (mage) who wants Alina's sun-summoning ability for his own use. Once he captures them, he ships them back to Ravka on a whaler commanded by the privateer Sturmhond, who then engineers a revolt mid-voyage and spirits Alina and Mal away. Sturmhond is secretly Prince Nikolai, second in line for the throne of Ravka; his ne'er-do-well older brother "cares more about horses and his next drink of whiskey than his people," so Nikolai wants the Sun Summoner to help solidify his claim to the throne. In exchange for helping Nikolai, Alina asks for command of the Grisha army to shore up their defense against the Darkling, but will Alina's star rise only to see her relationship with Mal crumble? Bardugo builds on strengths she brought to the first volume, including a richly crafted fantasy world with its own twist on magic, a surfeit of handsome leading men, and plenty of teen-appropriate romantic angst. The Darkling's attack at the climax tears apart everything the characters have worked for and sets up the third volume in the trilogy. In the meantime, the tension Bardugo sets up between Alina's conflicting desires for power and for love is thoughtfully wrought -- and creates an engaging wish-fulfillment fantasy for teens who would be glad to have either. anita l. burkam
