Description

She is the greatest assassin her world has ever known.
But does she have the heart of a killer?

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...

    Not as good as the prequel and about as predictable as book 1 with the bonus of ending with a would-be cliff hanger, but still fluidly written. Could use more proofreading. While there’s only a few typos, there’s a couple of continuity errors i.e. shaft is silver here but gold in book 1. The wind was taken out of the ending because Elena straight up revealed the information at the end of book 1, so readers were left waiting for characters to play catch up for the entirety of the book. A lot of the story logic didn’t make sense to me. In this book, it is revealed that dresses in Erilea have pockets, so why did she ever need to shove knives down her bodice, much less commission special hair pins, when it’s easier to store them in her pockets and no one ever searches her for weapons? Why risk running into old faces at a ball when the study has a window for her to enter through? A lot of the character thought processes felt less organic and more conveniently written to get characters to go with the plot, i.e. forgetting the glowing rune on Celaena’s head that screamed magic in a land where magic guaranteed execution, which bounced between issues that also conveniently didn’t blow up while sitting on a shelf, i.e. cloaked library figure. Contraception as an afterthought is also alarming. The way the author portrays Nehemia as a “good woman” rather than the morally grey character that she is with her “the end justifies the means” mentality is problematic. I.e. martyrdom, bullying, and manipulation of allies to further your agenda is okay as long as your cause is noble at the very least sets a bad precedence, never mind the trauma she inflicted on Celaena. I’m also going to be that person who points out that it’s not possible for Celaena to unsheathe a broadsword from her back because the blade is longer than her arm. Also, when busting through a door, it’s the door or door frame that gives, not the lock, and for some reason the Captain of the Guard doesn’t know that kicking is the optimal method, but these are nitpicks.

    There is not denying that the plot in the book is riveting. SJM is a good writer. The only reasons this book has three stars is because a): I love Chaol and wish that they had continued their relationship. And b): NEHEMIA! Nooooooo! She was my fav character! That’s why this book has three stars
  • Ehhh pretty bad, not the worst book I've ever read but I'm sad I spent money on this :(

    By Lfdevyefgdsgfsrtdfx
    Idk man it's better than the first one I'll give SJM that but it still falls super flat in a lot of places. This book takes itself far too seriously for my liking and then it has the balls to fail at being a serious book bc SJM will try to incorporate comedic elements but it's never funny and adds absolutely nothing to the story. It's just not good, and I'm trying so hard to like this books series but I legit just can't rip in the chat.
  • 5 stars!
