On the Screen: Any book worthy of a "Harry Potter" producer to option is worth reading. The Potter franchise's producer, David Heyman, optioned the book and will bring the story of Alina, Mal, and the Darkling to the big screen. YESSSS!
“The Darkling will hunt you for the rest of your days." "Then you and I will have something in common, won't we? Besides, I like to have powerful enemies. Makes me feel important." Mal crossed his arms and considered the privateer. "I can't decide if you're crazy or stupid." "I have so many good qualities," Sturmhond said. "It can be hard to choose.”
With interesting Russian influences and an absolutely unpredictable plot, Siege and Storm kept high fantasy alive and well in YA fiction. There are power struggles and epic battles and evil dark forces at work. This book kicked my butt and broke my heart.
