After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king's contest to become the new royal assassin. But Calaena is far from loyal to the crown. Keeping up the charade - while pretending to do the king's bidding - will test her skills in an entirely new way. And it certainly isn't the only point of confusion for the young girl. Because though she's made her choice between Dorian and Chaol, the ways of the heart are never simple...

First of all, just so you know .. I still don't like Dorian and I'm still team Chaol no matter what happens, ok ? .. ok

I have to admit this book was so much better than the first book and I think this one should be the first book of the series because Throne of Glass was so unnecessary and very long, so in this book we see how Celaena is such a badass and a ruthless killer and that made me appreciate her character more, I still have a question about her reason to investigate the wyrdkeys I mean everything she needs is in the castle so ..
the ending was really good and it reminded me of The Lunar Chronicles and now I want to know what will happen :) yay

Well, I've been wanting to read this series the moment I heard about it, first of all let me get 2 things straight
1) I don't like Dorian .. like AT ALL !! .. I feel he is such a spoiled brat, a handsome one at that, nothing else
2) I don't like books that depends on researching a history of a country I know nothing about because I have to depend on what the character is saying and that will lead to too many flaws and I will be waiting for the conclusion rather than enjoying the plot
so, that being said the book felt dull and on the dragging side for me .. I like Chaol and Celaena is cool .. but the adventure didn't show me Celaena's capabilities as an assassin .. I wish the rest will be better than this

The narration was nice .. but I wish if she had more voice ranges, specially for Dorian

Well, maybe because I expected much from this book that it couldn't match up .. I wanted to feel sympathetic towards Vic but he was a grade A jerk .. I wouldn't want to be near someone like that Ew.. I liked that we get to see Alex again <3 .. I felt my heart flutter when I saw my favorite boy well and happy with his wife Brittany :D .. but overall this was boring

The narration was good and I think it's what got me through this book .. but I didn't enjoy the book

and with that this great adventure ends, man it was a whirlwind and full of so much action and feelings
in this book we know more about Riley's past and his relationship with this cute chick Caitlin.. I liked this book but I have to admit it wasn't as enjoyable as the other two .. maybe I expected more of Riley ?? or maybe the love story didn't sit out with me ..
Anyhow I liked the video the author made " A look into the future of Eton Wolves " about 10 years after the events of the trilogy .. I liked it, and I will try and check out more of this author her stories are really good :)

Though the narrators were the same for all the books I don't know why their narration here wasn't that great .. but it was a nice trilogy after all

Ok people, before I start gushing let's get one thing out of the way
Christiana is a stupid girl who doesn't know a lick about being careful when there is a guy trying to KILL her .. I mean, geez

Now I'm done.. let's begin .. I loved this book so much, it has the aspect I love the most, suspense, a girl disguised as a boy .. and a brotherhood to live for :D Terry was a great love interest ( although I'm a Riley girl myself ) but he is sincere and had an interesting back story, I wish if he discovered that she was a girl in another way but it was fine.. EEEPPPP I can't wait to see how will Kade ( The Lone Wolf ) will find his girl to protect .. this is a really feel good book despite all the killing and revenge thing .. so yeah .. I loved it and I am soo ready to begin book 2 :)

The narration was really good and I would recommend this audiobook :) I got it as a part of the Romance Package which I am in LOVE with :D

If you need a book that will get you into that Christmas spirit I think this is the perfect book for you .. I liked most things about it, the happy moments, the traditions, the family love and how strong and supportive they are to each other .. I liked how Christmas had a role in the story unlike most stories that I've read
although I didn't root for Alex and Noelle at the beginning but I couldn't help but to laugh with them as they were making memories together and it sounded so much fun .. it was a really enjoyable Christmas read

The narration could've been better but I didn't have major complaints about it
