It’s always intimidating to review a book so loaded by high fan expectations and low critic opinions. This book is DIVIDED, my friend. It will turn husband against wife, brother against sister, dog against cat…wait. Well, you get the idea.
So let me break down what I liked and what I didn’t like so that you can decide whether you want to read it for yourself.
I liked… Celeana. This is not a common thing, apparently.
@_KatKennedy Isn't Celaena the ditziest, most incompetent assassin ever? She's all "ohhh, candy! ohh, Dorian's smile. ohhh, ball gowns"

She was arrogant, vain, narcissistic, flawed and I loved every bit of it. I loved her love of pretty dresses and candy. The girl was in a death camp ffs! She can enjoy anything she wants. I love her love of food I loved watching her make friends, I loved her blood thirsty, ragey nature that was sometimes comical.
