Because reading is better than real life...
Book Reader, Blogger, Reviewer, Lover of Fairytale Re-tellings, Middle Grade & Young Adult. I am also a huge fan of all things make believe ;)
I'm not even sure where to start with this book. It took 10 pages, yes, 10 pages for me to realize this was going to surpass the first book. More amazing? I called the first book EPIC is there a word better than EPIC? I don't know, I am just going to say it's beyond EPIC!!!
This one starts off pretty much were the last one left off (give or take a month or two).
So now that Celaena is the Kings Champion, her mission is to find out what groups of people are trying to get the king removed from the throne. The king will give her one name at a time for her to find and kill. Celaena knows she must do what the kings asks, her friends lives are in danger.
The first person she is asked to kill is someone she has history with, Archer Finn. They have known each other since she first started with Arobynn Hamel but he hold secrets and know things that could destroy everything Celaena knew and hoped for.
She spends a lot of time with her BFF Princess Nehemia and they really get a lot closer.
She meets a doorknocker named Mort in Elena's Tomb. He is hilarious and just a great addition to the character.
The chemistry between her and her two love interests are more intense and emotional in this book. At the end of the last book she tells Dorian (the Crown Prince) that nothing can happen between them and she only wants to be friends. At some point in this book she starts to realize she has feeling for Chaol, who I adore by the way he is the perfect guy. I seriously just love him. I am 100% team CHAOL!!!! The interactions between them grow more and you really get a sense of how much they care about each other.
Love, loss, betrayal, mystery, heartbreak (I was in TEARS), secrets revealed and a shocking end that will make you desperate to read the next one.
OMG there is so much going on in this book. So fast paced and super exciting.
The writing was amazing. The chemistry between ALL the characters was intense. I found myself laughing, rooting for them and at some point in tears.
I believe I loved this one more than the first and I LOVED the first one. 5 starts are not enough for this book. I haven't been this excited for a third book since Harry Potter. Sarah J. Maas has written something really amazing and I will recommend it to anyone, ANYONE, looking for an amazing book with action, mystery, fantastic romance and pure emotion.
I will say it again I completely and totally recommend this book for anyone wanting to read the most amazing book they ever read in their entire life...Seriously :)
