"I can safely say I'm enjoying this, even though:

A) the relationship I'm meant to see between Penryn/Raffe is jarring and discomforting as hell. Mostly because I'm unimpressed with Raffe and what he turns Penryn into.

B) It is also pretty obvious that this is a longer story broken up into three books because there seems to be no resolution in sight and only *now* it's getting interesting with the angel shindig?"

The Literary Bystander is on page 129 of 288 of Angelfall: side from tingling of deja vu of Hunger Games (in terms of Penryn's relationship to her sister/mother, being the chief provider for her family) - this is easy to breeze through, Although my main agenda is Penryn randomly commenting on how attractive Raffe is. Like girl please, you're in a post-apocalyptic world with Mad Max biker gangs and hellish angels. Nobody got time or cares about how how so and so is!

Does it count if I've only read one of the short stories (Birthday of the World) in this anthology? I mean, with the discomforting incest thing put aside, the one story I did read had an interesting premise for its world-building (especially with how ...more

“My name is Celaena Sardothien," she whispered, "and I will not be afraid.”
Sarah J. Maas

Sarah J. Maas
“You could rattle the stars," she whispered. "You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”
Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass

Sarah J. Maas
“He would move on. Because he would not be like the ancient kings in the song and keep her for himself. She deserved a loyal, brave knight who saw her for what she was and did not fear her. And he deserved someone who would look at him like that, even if the love wouldn't be the same, even if the girl wouldn't be her.

So Dorian closed his eyes, and took another long breath. And when he opened his eyes, he let her go.”
Sarah J. Maas, Crown of Midnight

Juliet Marillier
“He was sitting not far away, watching me, and I surprised a smile on his face, the first real smile I had ever seen him give, a smile that curved and softened the tight mouth, and warmed the ice-cool eyes; a smile that brought the blood to my face and made my heart turn over.”
Juliet Marillier, Daughter of the Forest

Sarah J. Maas
“Then Celaena and the King of Adarlan smiled at each other, and it was the most terrifying thing Dorian had ever seen.”
Sarah J. Maas, Crown of Midnight
