Siege and Storm
In this sequel to Shadow and Bone (2012), love interests Alina and Mal are on the run from Darkling, an evil Grisha who wants Alina's sun-summoning ability for his own use. All the two want is to start a new life in an unfamiliar land. They can't outrun their past or their destiny for long and as Alina's power grows, she slips deeper into the Darkling's game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her--or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.
