Of course :)

I've just finished the first section! So far I'm rather intrigued - the dynamic between the different Londons reminded me a little of Neverwhere at first!

This seems nothing like Vicious or Vengeful so far - it has a very different tone! (I loved Vicious and only liked Vengeful). This one is more high fantasy than sci-fi and so far so good - Schwab has a really interesting writing style!


Isabella (isabella32324) | 46 comments I am listening to the audiobook edition and i think the voice fits perfectly.


Laura ☾ | 1258 comments I've just finished today's section! What are your thoughts so far? :D


Isabella (isabella32324) | 46 comments OK I may or may not have finished the entire book already so i am not going to say much to prevent spoilers. I got invested so i couldn't put the book down.


Laura ☾ | 1258 comments Haha that’s alright! I’ll let you know when I finish it - I’ve been pacing myself but in that case I won’t restrain myself 😂 give me a day or two and we can discuss


Isabella (isabella32324) | 46 comments alright great


Laura ☾ | 1258 comments @Bree did you get to start this yet?

@Isabella - I finished it! What did you think? I absolutely loved it!

(view spoiler)


Celaena (akacelaenarenee) | 92 comments Yes! I was slow to starting it as college classes started up this week too, but i'm going to try to knock out at least 100 pages a day.


Laura ☾ | 1258 comments Ok will continue to tag all spoilers for now and you can jump in the discussion whenever you’re ready!


Isabella (isabella32324) | 46 comments (view spoiler)


Laura ☾ | 1258 comments Who's your favourite character?

(view spoiler)


Isabella (isabella32324) | 46 comments I don't really have a favorite character thus far cause each character has their own flaws and are very different people.
