After she has served a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, Crown Prince Dorian offers eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sarodethien her freedom on the condition that she act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.
I trusted Sarah J. Maas. And I was right to trust her. This book was just as good as the ACOTAR series. Now I need to go to buy the second book. I hope that “Santa” brings it. Because I need it. Now. This book also told some things that I was questioning for ACOTAR. Want to hear more, then read on.
I loved the characters (a.k.a I loved Celaena Sarodethien). I think that her character was amazing. I want to meet her so that we can bond over candy and books. She would be a perfect book blogger. She would fit right in. I thought that Dorian was okay. But I agree with Celaena, he is a stuffed shirt. And Chaol (who ever spells a name like that) was pretty nice. I didn’t like him that much, to be honest. Something about him didn’t hit off with me. I thought Nehemia was very brave and well done. She makes the perfect spy. No one suspected her until she uncovered herself. But now, back to the best character in the book, Celaena. (I am spelling that right, you stupid red squiggly line) I think that someone should figure out how to travel into books just so that I can meet her. I want to meet her really badly. Like, I would kill to meet her. I am going to stop (somehow) talking about Celaena and move onto the plot.
The plot was pretty good. Not as good as the characters (Namely one… Who is not to be named) but the characters were top notch. As good as the characters in ACOTAR. But they written by the same author so I shouldn’t be surprised. Why didn’t I say thins in the characters section? There were multiple points of view in this book so sometimes I didn’t which viewpoint I was reading from. That was the only issue I had with the plot. The settings were pretty well written too. I could easily imagine myself standing in wherever Celaena was. I could picture myself there and be able to actually know where I was. Which means that I want to go there and live there. Because of… you guessed it, Celaena. Well I totally failed not mentioning her in this paragraph. Ah well, it’s the thought that counts.
I loved this book and I hope that you do as well. I feel bad for not picking this up sooner. Well, I am not going to hesitate to pick up the next book. 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
