WOW!
This book is a masterpiece. It contains so many twists and turns that if you don't have your head on straight you'll most likely miss something of great importance.

All the characters are really, really well depicted and have a lot of depth to them. Like in the third book, readers get to read from the various point of views, which in my opinion, is both a blessing and a curse.

I very much enjoy how readers get such an in-depth and broad perspective of the story; how every single detail intertwines in such an intricate way that it sometimes boggles the mind. How in the world Sarah J. Maas even came up with half of the ideas are a wonder. Normally, as a reader, you wait impatiently for the one "aha-factor" in the book that's either going to surprise or disappoint you; this book had like eight or nine really good ones. This is why I'm proclaiming this book to be a masterpiece.

Apart from great characters, an amazing plot, and aha-factors that are unreal, this book is also written in an English register that enables people with "lesser" English skills to still be able to read and understand what is said and done. This is not to say that the language is simplistic, but it isn't written more difficult than needed, either.

To conclude: This book...
...has characters of great depth/quality.
...has lots of aha-factors.
...has an excellent plot.
...is written with good English = Not too simple or too hard English, which enables readers with various skills in the English language to read this book.

This book is a Masterpiece.
