It’s been two months since I’ve posted a review on here. What is up with me.
Sorry for the silence. I know you missed me.*
I’m back and filled with more nerd rage than ever. Muhahahahaha. Run while you still can.**
I’m going to try not to scream too much at Leigh Bardugo in this review, but who knows. I’m angry. And she sort of ripped out my heart in this book. *glares* I have one question for you Leigh… WHYYYY.
I’m trying to keep it spoiler-free, but if you’re the type who will hunt down anyone who mentions anything and smother them in stuffed animals (that sounds kind of nice, actually) AVOID ME AND MY REVIEW.
That’s right, I’m giving you leave to run. (The footnote doesn’t apply to you, you special bunch.) Now go away. GO.
*Actually, we both know that’s not true. BUT GO WITH IT.
**Just kidding, please don’t run. If you did, I’d have an emotional meltdown and throw my books at the wall in my rage/sadness…and we don’t want that, because, BOOKS. Please don’t make me hurt them.

The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.
Now the nation’s fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.
Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.
Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova’s amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling’s secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.
