Sarah J. Maas, you’ve done it again. You have amazed me to the point that the book just flew by like it was nothing. I will admit that I was slightly annoyed with Celaena at the beginning because she was so cocky, but she grew on me. The action was brilliant, the magic was fantastic and I could not get enough of the possible romance!
I really loved the idea of Celaena being an assassin. To my knowledge we haven’t had a main character like this anywhere and it was so unique. The only thing that bugged me about this book was Lady Kaltain. She popped up mainly during conversations between Celaena and Dorian and it was only to make him fall for her. Then at the duel she poisoned Celaena and at that point I just wanted her to go away. If she had a bigger part in the story maybe that would have been okay but I didn’t really understand the beef she had with Celaena.
I don’t want to say too much just because it’s so great you’ll have to find out the rest for yourself! I totally recommend this book to anyone who loves magic, assassins, and royalty. I also recommend it to anyone who has read her A Court of Thorns and Roses series. It is different, but there is mention of Fae somewhere in there!
