I would have devoured this in a day if I hadn’t gotten distracted with probably one of the biggest heartbreaks in my life. Coming back to it, after my heart was broken, really spoke to me and allowed me to start putting together the pieces again. Books are crazy that way because you can be completely destroyed but then they will start to weave you back together.
That’s how I felt with Celaena, there is so much going on with her at the beginning of this book and she ultimately is turning into the woman that she is meant to become. There are some passages that feel like I could have written them, like my heart is screaming through the page.
I’ll always be thankful for the experiences that I have had, for the love that I have given to people and the heart that I put forth and allow to be broken. Just like her, I will rise, I will change, I will become stronger and better. I’m glad that this book exists.
Yeah, this review is fairly personal, but books are meant to speak to you, to unlock a piece of yourself. A key to bring out a better person, to allow you to grow and change and feel. That’s how I feel with this series. I have become so attached to the characters even the ones that were introduced in this book. I can’t wait to see them grow and chance, to see the path that they take. To feel their triumphs and their pain and learn through them. To grow along side.
Sarah J Maas will always be one of my favorite authors because of these bonds that she writes, because of the subtle way that these characters show love and respect.
