My fourth and final interview of the Comic-Con weekend was with Shadow and Bone author Leigh Bardugo, who was there to talk Siege and Storm, the sequel to Shadow and Bone and, of course, to be a fangirl just like everyone else there!
Like The Maze Runner author James Dashner, this was her 2nd visit to Comic-Con, and she finds it as enjoyable as everyone else, especially getting to meet other authors that she adores as well as the chance to “get exposed to things that are out of the YA world.”

This time, I got to chat with her a little more about Siege and Storm, and then about the third book, Ruin and Rising. One of the first questions that came to mind was about Sturmhond and what we can expect to see in regards to his role in the Big Palace. Of course, she was quick to remind me that we don’t know what his situation is at this point, stating “Well, we don’t know if he is still alive. He could be alive, he could be dead, he could be held prisoner. We don’t know.” I paused for a moment, realizing my faux pas and told her that I am just assuming he is (basically because how could you get rid of such a wonderful character, right?)
