Review:

I thought this book was great. It definitely makes me want to continue on with the series.

Celaena’s character development in this book was great. I think that she definitely matured in this book. I think it was a great aspect for the author to not make her fall in love with any characters in this book (even though at some points I did think that her and Rowan were going to fall in love). Her character has developed well throughout this entire series and I can’t wait to see what she is going to be like in the future books.

I liked the character of Rowan. I think he was really cool. He was another character that I thought developed well throughout this entire book. I think the aspect of him being kind of a Fae warrior and prince was really interesting. Also, the fact of him being a prince just brought my interest in his character to a whole new level. Like I said before, I was glad that he wasn’t a love interest for Celaena but I do hope to see their friendship develop more in the next few books.

I think that getting to know more about the Fae in this book was also really interesting. We got to see kind of what they are like and how they live in their society. I thought it was so cool. Also seeing Celaena use her powers from her Fae lineage was amazing as well. I hope we get introduced to more characters from the Fae in the future books as well.

Even though I loved a lot of aspects in this book, there were a few things that I did not like as well.

First, I didn’t really like how the story was told. Even though I thought all of the different perspectives were interesting, I don’t think they made up one complete story. At some points I felt like I was reading three completely different books instead of just one.

Second, I was the biggest fan of the relationship between Dorian and Sorscha. I really don’t think it was a necessary part of the story. It kind felt like it was just thrown in there for the heck of it. That set aside, I was kind of sad at the death of Sorscha at the end of the book. After reading about Dorian’s reaction, it finally made me realizes that he was truly in love with her.

Third, I also don’t think the chapters focusing on Manon and the witches were necessary at all. I don’t know why they were put in this book because they played no part in the story at all. Maybe it plays a big part in the next book but was it really necessary to be included in this book?

Finally, I felt this book needed more action. I don’t think there was enough of it. We really didn’t get anything throughout the majority of the book. It wasn’t until the last few chapters that we finally got a good amount.

Overall, I did enjoy reading this book. Even though I had quite a few problems with some parts of it, the rest was completely fine in my opinion. I will be continuing on with the series and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

RATING: 4/5
