Argh! The MC and beauty gazing in mirrors needs to stop. Within 30 pages it's happened twice and one time before that. And again I ask myself, when's something gonna happen? For 100 odd pages there's been makeovers, fetes, training. And fetes? Isn't evil and mayhem afoot? Shouldn't celebrations be put on the back burner? Or does Evil understand and give them a much needed break?

Oh man, this Alina is a piece of work. Tis a shame that the fate of Os Alta, of all the world, lies in her hands. This dolt believes everything she's told. There's no Sherlocking herself, oh no, she's too busy mirror mirroring on the wall.

Placing antlers around her neck like a necklace. Whose idea was that, Flavor Flav? Kinda unfashionable and clunky, y'think?"

"'He said he wants to make Ravka whole again. He said that-'
'Stop telling me what he said!' she snarled.
She stole the words right outta my mouth. How about stop telling me every damn thing and start showing. Now that's a novel idea. Bright side: at least Alina's not talking about about how beautiful she and everyone else is.

More beautiful people and beautiful ensemble references. And wouldn't you know it, the token bitchy and jealous girl just arrived, Zoya (I believe), and she was described as, guess what? If you channeled Miss Cleo the psychic and said "beautiful", then I pass a virtual cookie your way. But seriously, there has to be a reason. Has to be. And nobody's saying due to it spoiling the whole plot, methinks.

Oh for the love of God, please let there be some kind of magic weaving going on as in the MC is under a spell. "I caught a glimpse of myself in the glass. Maybe it was the lamplight, but I thought I looked even better than when Genya had first finished her work on me...I was just gawking at myself in the mirror and had to smile. For a girl who hated looking at herself, I was at risk of becoming vain."

Really? WTF? "'It's funny,' I said after a while. 'I always thought that being beautiful would make life so much easier.'
'Oh it does,' Genya said, and laughed. I couldn't help but laugh, too."
I'm the only one who isn't laughing. Repetitive much? And not to nitpick, but aside from all the pretty pretty princesses, what's the plot?

P. 99 "Despite silver in their hair and their lined faces, they were strikingly attractive. In fact everyone in the room was unnervingly good-looking." p. 107 same party. "I was quickly surrounded by beautifully dressed men and women." a few sentences later: " The Queen was beautiful." So wait, I'm not fully understanding. Are there beautiful people at the soirée, for the author's a tad vague?

"She shrugged. 'So I'm beautiful. That doesn't mean much among Grisha. The Darkling doesn't care what you look like, just what you can do." Says the girl who was sent to basically do magical plastic surgery on the "ugly duckling" MC. Yet on p. 77 the MC said this: "'Do I look like a Grisha to you?' Grisha were beautiful." So are those who can do magic the most beautiful in all the land or not? I confused!
