So, funny story, one night a few months ago, I had some Fireball and went to Barnes and Noble and bought a ton of books. Like, so many that the guy who checked me out made a face. This book was one of them. I’ve actually been carrying it around with me for about two months meaning to read it and I only just finally got around to it. The release of Kingdom of Ash (along with Daniel‘s recommendation) finally got me to pick it up.
I’m not really sure why I waited so long to read it because this book was great. I read a few pages after work on Thursday, maybe 100 pages on Friday… and then read the rest in two sittings on Saturday. The break between sittings was to go to Barnes and Noble for Heir of Fire.
It’s going to be so hard to keep this review spoiler-free if I talk about literally anything that I liked or disliked plot-wise, so I think I’m just going to say a couple things about the characters:
- I didn’t mind Celaena in the first book, but I loved her in Crown of Midnight.
- I know that a lot of people hate Chaol, but I still like him. (Although we’ll see how I feel after the next five books.)
- I feel like we don’t know Dorian that well yet, but I like him a lot.
- Nehemia is the greatest.
- If anything happens to Fleetfoot, I am going to be inconsolable.
Now all I can say is that I can’t wait to jump into Heir of Fire.
Have you read Crown of Midnight? Do you think I can take a week off work to marathon this series? Let’s talk in the comments!
