OMG. This is So good So good!!! It borderlined on becoming an adult urban fantasy book.
Unlike previous books, there were two storylines going on. Celaena and Manon the witch. I had yet to see how the two stories coincide.
This was a much deeper book than the normal YA fantasy. It centered on comradeship, loyalty, and empathy. The romance was there without it being explicitly written. You could literally see the connections forming between the characters before your eyes. But really who cares about romance when you had to deal with betrayal, evil king, the ever conniving fae, and meeting the deadline of mastering your power.
Like an adult UF book, this was very heavy on magic, and had multiple POVs. But the number of characters was relatively contained... so I didn't get confused unlike some other books.
The action was really good, the escape from the skinwalker, the battle against the Valgs, the downfall of XXXX, the War Game etc.
Lastly, I should mention I really liked this new friendship Celaena had. Chao's sacrifice now seemed water under the bridge. Sorry Chao, you didn't get forgotten just no longer the focus.
