My first read of the month! (and the review is up late :p *sigh*)
The reason I’ve been delaying writing this review is because I did not know how to properly spill my feels in the *right* way on the screen. But here I am 😉
Arobynn’s enemies stretch far and wide – from Adarlan’s rooftops and its filthy dens, to remote islands and hostile deserts. Celaena is duty-bound to hunt them down. But behind her assignments lies a dark truth that will seal her fate – and cut her heart in two forever…
I still don’t know how to spill my feels right 😦
These novellas are about Celeana before she was sent to Endovier. Each novella was unique and amazing and full of badassery and gosh, feels! All of the freakin’ feels!
From the first novella you are swept into Maas’s incredible world and you meet Celeana, in all of her amazingness glory. Of course you don’t fall in love right away (hihi it takes time 😀 ) with her character (in my case, it was gradual) but over the pages you come to understand her and why she acts in certain ways.
The thing with Maas is that from the first novella you are hinted about a budding romance which will make you fall hard over your knees. This ship will be so amazing that you couldn’t wait for them to be together. And for approximately half of the book you are so happy that at least your ship will live happily ever after… And then Maas breaks your heart with a hammer and you lie in a pool of feels.
This collection of novels nonetheless helps us as the reader to understand Celeana better, and in my opinion, to respect and admire her even more. Yes, she is not flawless, but this contributes to make her a more wonderful heroine.
