I read this book for the first time when it came out last year and I remember really enjoying it. The second read was as good, I really liked this book and all its characters.
I don't really know what to say without any spoilers, this book is the 5th in the series and a lot have happen to our main character since she started her journey. She has grown so much and yet, she is still the same. I remember really disliking her the first time I read Throne of Glass, but now, I think she is amazing.
I just think some romances are a bit forced and do not feel really natural. As if all female characters needed to be with a male character just because he is around. It is the feeling I got out of this book, but I still kind of enjoyed those "romances".
This book is full of adventure and revelations and once again, I'm impressed how the author reveals some part of the story to the other characters as the same time as to the reader. Aelin is scheming and nobody knows it, not even the reader, until one of the characters discovers what she did. I think it really add something to the book.
The ending left me on edge, just like last time, but I had Tower of Dawn to help me get over the book hangover. I just finished Tower of Dawn and will post my review really soon!
Holy Shitake ! What a ride. I was slung to the left, thrust to the right, crushed into the corner, dunked under black water, floated on a cloud, and then flung over a cliff with no bottom. Yep, a total E ticket ride with no safety bar. That ending
How can I go on with real life with that ending ? How ? Ms. Maas you are a beast. :D And I thank you. This series just gets better and better.
The break down, there is love, quests, deaths, fighting, sex, flirting, shifting, sinking, fires, ice, snark, twists, betrayals, truths, blood, and critters. Don't miss it, read the series.
