*Semi-spoiler free review*

So I decided to pick this up and reread it because sneak peeks from the coloring book were released, and one of those was the scene where Rowan meets Celaena.


I did only read the parts with Celaena in it because I was having a lot of feels, so it wasn't a full reread or else there would be my thoughts and feels on Dorian and Chaol and Aedion and Sorscha and Manon.

I knew everything that was going to happen, but a lot of the smaller self-deprecating things that were thrown in SO much were so painful for me. In the first two books, we see Celaena's confidence and her swagger, but this one just shows all her pain and self-hate. And while I loved getting to know her better, my heart was constantly breaking. Especially with Rowan.

Rowan is my number one all time book boyfriend, and Rowaelin is my number one all time OTP, but at the beginning of this book, he's an ass. He puts Celaena down and he insults her. He's her trainer, but he also beats the crap out of her when they're sparring. It's interesting, though, to see his character development. I've always loved that development.

But in the end, when he's the only one who knows her whole past and still accepts her, that's what makes him my favorite book boyfriend, and one of my favorite book characters of all time. He's hands down the best pick for Celaena, now Aelin, so far. I really hope he and her stay together. But with two more books (and already being on the fourth book with 3 different love interests), it could change. And that terrifies me.

I'm so excited to see how Empire of Storms goes, but right now, I am either going to be rereading Queen of Shadows or A Court of Thorns and Roses (in honor of ACOMAF coming out in May).

There's not much I can say about this book other than it dragged my heart through every pothole and ripped me apart. We got to see so much of Celaena's past, and that was fabulous. I absolutely love this book with all my heart.

If I could give this book more than infinite stars, I would, but I can't. So Infinite stars will have to do.


Thanks for reading
