Wow, I can say that I was thoroughly impressed with this book. I was expecting lots of stereotypes, but the authour proved me wrong. I find the style that it's written in a little bland, however the plot line and fun characters mostly make up for that. A really entertaining read if you're looking for something light yet interesting. I couldn't put it down and I'd definitely recommend it to fans of "Graceling!" :)

This book is amazing I cant put the amazingness in words. Don't even read peoples comments like jayliss who think that their is something wrong they are just dead wrong.

It’s not a good sign if, instead of actually reading the book, I’d rather be covering up the “GL” on the cover and yelling “BACK THAT THANG UP!”

Which, for the record, still hasn’t gotten old…

Let’s start with the beginning. It’s 8 pages into the book, and Celaena, our heroine, has just met Dorian, the crown prince. To her chagrin, he’s an Adonis. But “Princes are not supposed to be handsome!....This one….this….How unfair of him to be royal and beautiful.” But that’s OK, because she’s already met mysterious handsome guy #2, Chaol. Like, seriously? IT’S PAGE 8. I can understand wanting to cut to the chase, but PAGE 8 IS TOO EARLY FOR A LOVE TRIANGLE.

Full review:

i am only half way through and its got me hooked :)

Finally, a REAL fantasy heroine! I must say though that I had my doubts as Caelena was often mentioned as "the assassin" while doing close to nothing that warranted that 2 in the series is even BETTER.

I absolutely adored this book. I stayed up all night reading it. She's a bit self centered but it really rounds out her character. This book will entrance you till the end, and make reading the second book a need to do action.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this book. Some people are annoyed by Celaena's arrogance and vanity but I think it's natural for people to want to look good and just because she is an assassin doesn't make her an exception.
