Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy.

While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?
 
First off can I say that this book has one of the highest ratings on Goodreads that I have ever seen? Also I have not heard ONE person say they didn't like this book, and there is a great reason for that because this book is EPIC!!!!! So many questions are answered in this one. I don't want to give too much a way in case someone is reading this who has not read the first two books. Lets be honest we all do it at some point. I loved the world building in this book because it not only gives us extraordinary details, but it also answers a lot of questions that were left unexplained in the first two books. HOLY CRAP were things intense when we learn We get to see so much more of the true Celaene and not just scratch the surface. I always loved Celaene but now I feel like I understand her and know the true her. She finds herself and we get to take part of that journey which is EPIC in case you were wondering. BEST CHARACTER GROWTH EVER, and not just from Celaene. There were old characters that we all have grown to love. They get their own spots in the spotlight in this book which I enjoyed. It was nice to see them as individuals and not just what they are to Celaene. We get to see their true feelings, beliefs, and their own problems.
There are new characters that were introduced and every single one of them were fantastic. These characters are so well developed that you love to love them or love to hate them. There is not one character that was introduced that felt not needed which happens often in books.
This is a huge book and you guys have heard before how I feel sometimes with big books. I will feel overwhelmed with all the information the book gives me, I feel like I will forget something important. I will feel like I will never finish the book and end up feeling discouraged. I DID NOT feel that way with this book because I flew through it. I was shocked at how fantastic this book was. How do these books keep getting better and better? If you are scared this book will disappoint you don't. You will love this book just as much as I do.
Make sure to let me know you thoughts on this book =)
