So as many know, this book is about a girl named Celaena Sardothien who is a 18 year old assassin who was working in the salt mines of Endovier. She gets offered freedom on the condition that she must act as the champion for the Prince.
I got into this series late, I just read it in 2015 but I am obsessed with this series! It basically changed my life. I could not put it down, and I didn’t want to put it down. Once I finished it I wanted to read it all over again! It is totally in my taste range, and let me tell you: if you love fantasy and action, you’ll fall in love with this series.
I just really loved how everything flowed so well, the writing was great and it kept you hooked. The characters are so well developed, and as you go on in the series they really show development. Celaena is such a great character, and she really embodied being badass, but also girly. It was a perfect combination of the two opposite personalities. She made it cool to be tough yet feminine. She wasn’t afraid to dress up in dresses, even though she had a tough exterior. She is someone you can really look up to, and I loved reading about her. I feel like for the two covers that were published, two really showed her two personalities, which is funny.
I love her confidence,her arrogance, it was great that she didn’t drown in her self-pity, she really stood her ground, held her head high, and fought her hardest to survive. She didn’t let her time in the salt mines break her spirit and her will to live. It only made her stronger, and made her fight that much harder. It was refreshing to read about a character not wallowing in self-pity.
Dorian was a good character as well, and he has so many interesting things about him. He’s charming, he isn’t what he seems, as well as not liking his position as prince. I’m really enjoying where he is going in the next books character wise, and it’s great to see growth in male characters.
Chaol is obviously my favorite male character. I like getting to know him as the books go on, and I love getting to see him more in depth. In this book he was a good character, but you didn’t get to know much about him yet. he flips from being frustrating to being adorable AF! He’s someone you really enjoy getting to know as time goes on.
This book and series is really close to my heart, I got hooked, and am now super obsessed. I am now attached and I am not sorry about it at all. Whenever my friends and I hit up bookstores, I always make sure to shove it in their faces and hands and insist that they need to read them and fall in love too!
Let me know in the comments if you’ve it and your thoughts on it! I’d really enjoying hearing about it.
