Micky’s 4 star review
Oh my allegiances
What in the Manon?
Here for the growing self-belief
It might of taken me weeks to read this book but I appreciated the time to process all the happenings and despite my own pacing, it kept me involved in the plot and characters. What I didn’t expect (but why not, Micky?) were the Maas-extraodinaire shifts in allegiances, rebels, couples and so on. I find myself with Maas’ plan of Celaena’s longing.
Rowan was a slow burn to like but I got there. Celaena kept me on her side all the way through and I enjoyed finally getting the reveals on her past experiences and how she arrived in assassin life. I’m still not 100% sure what I think of Aedion but I don’t like where he was left and Chaol has left me disappointed.
Manon gets her own paragraph because what in the world building were these sandwiched chapters of Manon? We are left with zero connection to the overall story and this was clearly prep for another book but surely this would have worked better in what ever book this relates to? Everytime it shifted to Manon, it was a groan of whyyyy? Abraxos was the saving grace, and Manon I don’t dislike but it was the shoe-horned narrative that annoyed me.
Overall this was a good read and I am still finding this a worthy series.
