Melinda Brasher | 24 comments Was anyone else disturbed by how lightly this book treated the topic of being an assassin? We're talking about killing people--possibly quite innocent people--in cold blood. Over and over. For money. Yet Celaena hardly seems to feel any guilt or remorse, never has nightmares or waking nightmares, never wonders about the families of the people she killed. And now she's most likely going to be doing it again.

I found this disturbing. Did anyone else?

Ali | 1 comments Nope. Loved the series.


David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 99 comments Did you read the novellas first? I think that helps with this aspect of the books, but you have to remember that the world Maas has created is a much darker, more violent one. I think you will find some very interesting character growth if you go on to the sequel.


Melinda Brasher | 24 comments I haven't read the novellas, but this is marketed as book one, so I think it should stand on its own. I'm glad there's more character growth in the sequels.
