Blog Review: https://trishadoeseverythingbutstudy2.wordpress.com/2020/12/18/my-july-reviews-p...

An awesome sequel to [b:Throne of Glass|7896527|Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)|Sarah J. Maas|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1495278054l/7896527._SY75_.jpg|11138426]. These covers are amazing!!!.......even though I am reading the ebook. There were just so many twists and turns......some which I saw coming, others which I didn't. I suspected around 20% into the book that Aelin was Celaena......and it turns out I was right!!!! Also, why did Nehemia have to die?!?!??!(I was loving her). Finally the love triangle has a resolution......one which I was rooting for from the beginning. I solved a tiny bit of the riddle and what it was talking about because the rings had been drawn attention to......black rings anyone? obsidian? they're the same colour? Can't wait to start reading the third book!!! ( )

Even better than the first! Finished at 2AM, spent all day reading. Beginning the third book now. Love how Celaena and Dorian's friendship is developing and the development they have. ( )

*I put down the book and let out a breath fo relief, knowing that I can finally review it.*

There are so many people complaining that x character is a rip off of Celena. I propose you this: Celena is the sucky rip-off of Katsa (and practically all the leading ladies) in [b:The Graceling Realm Box Set|31819871|The Graceling Realm Box Set|Kristin Cashore|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1472762597l/31819871._SX50_.jpg|45871560] by [a:Kristin Cashore|1373880|Kristin Cashore|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1273894652p2/1373880.jpg]. Seriously, that was all I could think about while reading this. She's a knockoff Kasta in a knock off court ruled by a knockoff King Leck and is also filling the role (to some degree) of a knockoff Bitterblue and Fire. I love that series with all my heart and I really could not fall into this and enjoy it because of that. I am bitter that this is more popular and [b:Graceling|3236307|Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1)|Kristin Cashore|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1331548394l/3236307._SY75_.jpg|3270810] is not. And people go around getting mad at "Celena rip-offs". Graceling came out in 2008. Fire came out in 2009 and Bitterbnlue hit shelves in 2012 (although I get that publishing takes years so this one might not count for much).

Also, everyone talking about her names and calling her Aelin when they said they didn't want to spoil the series spoiled the plot twist of this book. I can't even tell you if it was obvious or not, though judging that it's similar to [b:The Lunar Chronicles|36381037|Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)|Marissa Meyer|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1507557775l/36381037._SY75_.jpg|15545385] it was probably something that someone would have deduced if they were fully captivated by the plot. Which, as I mentioned above, was very hard for me for many reasons.

*I let out a calming breath*

On a lighter note, I can see why it has the hype and not just because it's a knockoff of one of the best ya fantasy trilogies ever written. It has a lot of interesting elements and ideas, but they were not executed well. I'm not a fan of Celena's character. I'm a fan of the idea of Celena. She sounds cool, but liking cake is not a personality trait. Being instantly attractive to all the important people is not a personality trait. Having remorse for killing, sure I guess, but it just makes her character weird and inconsistent and it makes me believe like there should be a lot more to her characterization but there isn't. And then I just think back to how well Katsa is everything she is not and, well...

This book was enjoyable. It was fun, light read. I will give it that. It's better than the first one, and after reading the Assassin's Blade I believe there's more promise for improvement as this series continues. I also bought the next two installments at Value Village some time ago, so I'm glad this didn't put me off the series completely. I'm actually really excited to see where this goes if the story improves, but I have read mixed reviews for some of the later volumes so I'm not sure. But that has nothing to do with this book other than to point out that it has potential. It just doesn't live up to it.

Does it live up to the hype? Kind of? I guess? I can't say that it blew me away and that I will now sing Sarah J. Maas's praises from every rooftop, but it wasn't heinously bad. Just very disappointing. Maybe because of the hype. I have a feeling if you haven't read Graceling you would like this a lot more than I did. Because all I was thinking about was Katsa, and how she bridged the gap between Middle Grade and YA for me, and how deeply connected I felt for character and how much I enjoyed Bitterblue and found Fire interesting and reread them for years until I finally had the courage to read more YA. I didn't feel any of that here. Someone else might though, and I'll be happy for them.

And at the very least, SJM is improving as a writer. Maybe her future works will be something I will love. There is that potential. I don't yet believe that it has been squashed.

*I let out a mother apprehensive breath that I had been holding now that I've finally gotten down all my pent-up thoughts.*

And if this review seems long, somehow, this book felt long. Like I was enjoying, but about 70% of the way through I was just waiting and waiting and waiting for it be over.

This review is over now

At least, I'm pretty sure it.

Gotta make sure I have nothing else smart to say.

No, I don't.

This review is over. ( )

Pure magic. Growth all around. Absolute best kind of follow-up. ( )

I completely forgot about how much Dorian's character arc is developed in this book. Rereads always allow you to find more little hidden gems. ( )
