Celaena has survived deadly contests and shattering heartbreak―but at an unspeakable cost. Now, she must travel to a new land to confront her darkest truth . . . a truth about her heritage that could change her life―and her future―forever. Meanwhile, brutal and monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, intent on enslaving her world. Will Celaena find the strength to not only fight her inner demons, but to take on the evil that is about to be unleashed?
The bestselling series that has captured readers all over the world reaches new heights in this sequel to the New York Times best-selling Crown of Midnight. Packed with heart-pounding action, fierce new characters, and swoon-worthy romance, this third book will enthrall readers from start to finish.
I can’t finish this. I tried. I made it to chapter 42, but I have no willpower to read any more of it. It’s too long.
Sarah’s writing is beautiful, descriptive. But I can’t stand her two main characters (but I do like Chaol), so there’s no point in reading if I keep hoping Celaena and the growling male will die horrible deaths.
I got to this paragraph and mentally gagged.
“She didn’t fail to notice how quickly they looked away when they beheld Rowan at her side. Though she did catch a few females looking at him with far warmer interest. She wanted to claw their faces off for it.”
Wtf. I was just so done at this point.
Much earlier in this book, Celaena was calling/thinking Maeve was a bitch from the get-go before she knew about Rowan’s tragic bs. And it’s like, honey, look at yourself. You’re the biggest bitch in the whole series, shut up.
This series isn’t for me. I don’t think I’ll read another Maas book again. Her version of fae isn’t something I like. It’s such a shame because I do like her writing style just not what she likes to write about.
