Oh my goodness!! What an ending!!!! I'm literally heading straight to Amazon to buy book 3 after writing this. Just saying... I'm fascinated by Celaena. I'm fascinated by who she is and who she becomes. I'm fascinated by the men who love her. I'm totally rapt. This book moves so quickly. Adventure after adventure. Between the characters and the plot of the story, this series is a favorite of mine. It has all the elements I look for in a good fantasy series. Yes, in the first book I wanted more butt-kicking and she gave me that and more with this book! I definitely don't want to tell you too much, that's what the synopsis is for. I will say that you definitely need to read this series. IT is the best of her books in my opinion.
