Leigh Bardugo you are amazing! I loved Alina, I love Mal, I loved the plot, I loved the ideas, even the Darkling was amazing! So let's just be honest...I LOVED THIS BOOK! I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING I DIDN'T LIKE ABOUT IT! Wait there is one thing, I don't have the second one and that is going to make me cry. I can't wait to read it!!!
