Assins and warriors from across the empire each sponsored by a member of the king's council If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations she'll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard Westfall challenging and exhilarating But she's bored stiff by court life Things get a little interes. Sorry but it looks like I've been excited for NOTHING After enticing me with its promises of a reading experience reminiscent of Megan Whalen Turner and George RR Martin Throne of Glass ultimately let me down Having been excited for this novel for weeks and actually liking the sample I read I have been brought back to earth now – with a jolt This YA fantasy is a rather sorry example of its genreI have the notion that a big part of this book did not work for me because of its heroine Celeana is smart athletic talented and beautiful She loves music and reading She is fluent in different languages She is great And she knows it And rubs it in your face repeatedly As do her suitors and admirers I had the feeling that Sarah J Maas tried everything to make me love her heroine How do you make readers love someone Present them with a book lover But somehow she accomplished the opposite I did not loathe Celaena but she grated on my nerves I wished someone would tell her off would for once not grant her every wish; I wished the characters I liked would not fall for her charms and good looks The little romance Celaena had I won't say with whom was laughable at best and mostly resulted in me rolling my eyes at the fact that the only attraction that existed between those two stemmed from them both being beautifulIn terms of plot I cannot deny that there was always a level of suspense present I did want to know how this story ended and yes there were actually parts when I feared the whole thing would not end well – partly because my beloved heroine did not deem it necessary to inform certain people about what she had witnessed in the castle Overall though the story remained a tad too juvenile and simple for me Important events were mentioned only in passing and the mythology did not go any further than what was important for the main story line Many things remained unsaid – doubtlessly for the sake of seuels yet to come – but it was not the subtle way of remaining unsaid but hinted at I love in fantasy novels it felt like remaining unsaid to lure me into reading on There were aspects I liked Celaena's friendship to Nehemia the Eyllwe princess and Chaol the loyal and fierce captain of the guard – but in the end there isn't enough to make me interested in reading any seuelsIn short what I wanted A less is mentality World building that does not only cover what is necessary to follow the main story arc Subtle romance Villains in different shades of grey Assassins that actually assassinate And do not only sit in their room talking or thinking about clothes and boys What I got A vain and mostly unlikeable heroine Two men absolutely bedazzled by her presence Hints of a love triangle Lots and lots of descriptions of clothing Flimsy world building An overall poor execution writing wise Thank you Next Thanks a lot to Netgalley and Bloomsbury for the review copy

Once again it seems like I'm in the minority for this book because I didn't like it It's such a shame too because I'd heard a lot of good stuff about it Oh well maybe it's just meor maybe because this book just plain sucksLet's start off with our protagonist Celaena who's the greatest assassin in the worldOkay I'm cool with that But it'd be nice if she could actually prove it because from what I've seen she's once hell of a crappy assassin People walk in and out of her room all the time when she's sleeping and she just keeps on snoring Hello aren't you supposed to spring awake like a ninja and hold a knife to that person's throatThat's what I expect from someone who just left a death camp Instead I get thisThe real clincher is what I call the 'Candy Incident' There's a bag of candy left on Calaena's bed with no note or anything This is during the period where a murderer is going around killing Champions and a couple have died already And what does the 'greatest assassin in the world do She gobbles them up immediately going Oh how I adored candiesRemember that episode in Avatar the Last Airbender when Sokka drinks cactus juice and gets all high Then it wears off and this happensCouldn't have said it better myself Katara Calaena is the kind of idiot that licks stuff off walls even without the hallucinatory assistance of cactus juiceBut wait there's Nothing happens to her because she's purrrfect and fabulous like that song from High School Musical In fact I'm pretty sure she's a Mary Sue Let's check off her traits shall we Tragic past check Pretty check Amazingly good at something check Has than one love interest check Don't even get me started on the love interestsThere is absolutely no difference between Dorian and Chaol except for the fact that I'm leery of the name Dorian Maybe it's because I just recently finished The Picture of Dorian Gray so whenever I see his name I think of thisIt could be me but then again you wouldn't name your kid Lolita would youAnd the ending view spoilerwhere Calaena breaks up with Dorian because she's the King's Champion and it would be inappropriate We all know it's a ploy to sueeze in some kissy kissy time with Chaol in the next book And by being single she doesn't look like a cheater hide spoiler
