Genres: High Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult

Summary: From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.

Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.

Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena’s world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie…and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.

My Review: I feel like I’ve started so many of my reviews like this, but holy crap.

That was amazballs. 

I just finished it, not even 2 minutes ago, and I can’t even process everything right now. I literally closed the book and picked up the laptop. And now I’m here, fangirling with too many gifs and lots of jumbled sentences.

1. Chaol

I’m over him. Sorry not sorry, but I’m not team Chaol anymore. I have this thing that when characters finally get together, I don’t ship them as much. I like the whole “i like you, and you like me, but we don’t wanna acknowledge it so we’ll just have a lot of sexual tention” kind of relationship. The first time I realized I liked that was with Damon and Elena during season 1 and 2 of Vampire Diaries. But now they’re together and I’m over it. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. The only reason I like Chaol as a character is because I pictured Arthur from Merlin as him.

Lets just take a look at my fancast right now. It’s beautiful if I do say so myself.

Dorian:

Hot prince

Celaena:

hot killer girl

I quite like my choices for the cast. *pats on back*

I should probably actually talk about the book now, huh?

So once again, hats off to Sarah J. Maas for making, yet again, a beautifully brilliant novel. This story is just so amazing to me. I can’t get over it or the characters. I just love this world so much and I never want to leave it. I’m so happy to hear that there are going to be six novels in total for this series. I think I said that before, and I’ll probably say it again, but I’m obsessed with this. In the beginning, I was squealing like a little girl during scenes between Chaol and Celaena. I literally smiled so much during that, just staring at my book and smiling in public. I looked insane to say the least.

Emotions, man, emotions

And now here I am, arriving at Team Dorian Land after the rise and quick fall of Team Chaol Town.

I’m on to the next book now, praying for more Celaena and Dorian scenes. I hope she joins him in Dorian Land. She needs to evacuate Chaol Town asap.
