Since this book is the second of a series, I was ready to completely dislike it and move on to the next book quickly. I definitely got through this book fast, but not because it was horrible. There was so much going on! It's rare that I like a second book in a series, and it's even rare-r that I like it better than the first - This is the exception.
This book gripped me and wouldn't let go. I read it in just a couple days (and it would have been faster if I didn't have to do things like go to work). I ate it all up - om nom nom. The fantasy is much better in this book and actually became a huge part of the plot, rather than just a footnote in Maas' world.
I was tricked. I felt warm and fuzzy. I was worried. I was right there with Celaena and the whole gang. The revealings made me hungry for more. I'm so happy this is more than just a trilogy and it won't be over with one more book. I'm ready!
