Wow. This book was so great. I was immediately swept away into Maas's fantasy world and its characters.
First off, how cool is it to read about a girl, who is a notorious assassin? Celaena is such a badass. I love it. She's smart, witty, and fierce and you can't help but love the way she doesn't take any crap from the Prince or the Captain of the Guard. Set in a medieval world, Celaena walks to the beat of her own drum. Yes, she must be careful, as she does not want to be sent back into slavery, but I love her attitude and spunk.
Watching her interact with the males is such great fun.
Chaol, the Captain of the Guard, is a stoic character, who is very wary of Celaena. Dorian, the Crown Prince, is your typical arrogant, fun-loving, playful prince who ends up being quite taken with Celaena.
If you are a fan of fantasy and medieval settings, this book is awesome.
