download (1)Royal assassin Celaena must travel to a new land to confront a truth about her heritage, while brutal and monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, intent on enslaving her world.

This book was even more awesome than the books before it. I can’t wait to read the next book. The ships were awesome and so were the other characters. The plot was so intense and also very interesting. We learned way more about magic then I’ve ever learned in one book. I loved it. And then we learned about blood-oaths and all the types of Fae. So this book was very important for the rest of the series. Want to know more awesome things about this book? Then read on.

The characters were really intense. I loved it. How strong and smart can these women get while still making mistakes? These characters are so realistic and I totally ship some of them. The way the Aelin (aka Celaena but I’m going to call her Aelin now) was healing with Rowan’s help was amazing. So I loved how strong the female characters were. Not talking about Maeve. She’s a worm. But instead of talking about that piece of trash we should talk about my favorite character in this book: Rowan.

Rowan is really sweet and his past was really sad. I feel so bad for him. And it’s obvious what Aelin is to him so why should he conceal it? I called it as soon as they met. But then everything changed and Aelin started liking Rowan. I was so happy!!! That needed to happen. Hopefully, in the next book, Rowan and Aelin’s relationship will continue forward.

The plot was really intense and and action-packed. I loved how we saw more of the king’s actions. but that made me dislike him even more so I suppose that it went both ways. Personally, I hope the king dies in the nest book. It distresses me. But we had epic fight scenes. And I mean epic.  They made up for everything. There was also the reveal of Aedion’s true loyalties, but, I won’t talk about them. Then, there were some scenes that had me wondering how the characters were so smart. But they are and I loved to cackle at how stupid everyone else seemed when Aelin and Rowan came up with this brilliant plans. The plot was just as good as the setting, which I’m going to talk about now.

The setting was very detailed. I still am not sure how SJM does it. I envisioned myself adventuring with the characters every step of the way. It was awesome. I can’t wait to see what they do with the TV show. Whenever that comes out. Mistward was such a beautiful place. As was the forgotten temple of Mala Light-Bringer. I loved how the sun Aelin as felt stronger there. That was impressive. I loved it. 

As you can see, I loved this book. I highly suggest it. Please remember to fill out my survey. You can find the link on my about page. Thanks for Reading!!!! Have a Great Day!!! -Annalee and Buttons
