If you haven’t read the other books please be warned you will get a ton of spoilers in this review!

My Review:

I wanted to go into amazing detail with how much I loved this book and I loved the first 2 books, I even loved the novellas. I am not 100% sure what happened. I struggled through the first half of this books and was hoping for an epic second part but that wasn’t what I got. It was interesting but just dragged by the time I got to about 75% the book it picked up and I was excited at the end and one point completely shocked. So when this was over I sort of felt lost as far as what to write in this review and what to rate the book. As much as I loved the addition of the witches and wyverns, I wasn’t feeling the story between Celaena and Rowan, I understand that it was a build up to what I can assume will be an epic battle in the next book or two but the process was just way to long and at some point I kind of lost the point of why I need to know or really care at all. The POV switches was ok but as much as I missed Chaol and Dorian I just wasn’t feeling what was going on with them either. **bangs head on desk** I really wanted to love this book but it wasn’t my favorite.

I have every intention to read the next one in the series only because I LOVE this series and just because this book didn’t have the WOW factor I was hoping for doesn’t make me hate or abandon the series. I know a lot of people that found this slow and some that loved the entire book. I just believe this wasn’t what I was expecting and the action in the first two book seemed to be lacking in this one.

If you read the first two books please don’t not read this one, just because I found it slow and had gone in a different direction than I thought it would doesn’t mean you wont like it, I think this is a total set up for the next two books so if you love this series like I do read this book!

This book sat at 2 stars for me until the second half then it sat at 3 by the end I only added a half because I loved the series. This is why I gave it 3.5 stars

Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my review

Hope you have a great day and Happy Reading!

  1. I’ve been waiting for this review ๐Ÿ˜‰ I knee you didn’t love it, but I thought you’d be harsher actually. I guess you got the venting out talking to me ๐Ÿ˜› I personally LOVED it, though I did think it started slow. Things got epic for me – but I really loved all the training. And that battle! Sigh. Yeah I loved it. But next book I think will be better ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Like Stormi, I haven’t started this series yet, but it’s on my TBR (I might even own the first one…) so I also skimmed your review very quickly.
    Hmm… so you’d recommend we read the first one as a stand-alone, Michelle?
    I hope you’re having a fantastic Friday ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your weekend.

    • No it’s not a stand alone. The first one ends in an OMG and the second ends like that too, This one had a great ending but the rest was just so slow.. I would 100% recommend the first 2 but when you get to the third it’s very slow however I have heard others say it’s EPIC so maybe it was just me and I was looking for more action and less talking.
