I am so in love with this book. It was sort of forced on me by a friend and I wasn't too sure that I'd like it, but it was amazing. It's the sort of story that had me sneaking off to the back room at work to read a page or two and then when I got to the last 50 or so pages, I was trying to slow down to make it last. Celaena is a kick ass heroine. She's smart and fierce and I want to hang out with her. Not only for her to teach me how to beat people up, but she's witty and has such a great sense of humor. I was rooting for her from the very beginning. Did I mention there are TWO swoony boys to choose from? They couldn't possibly be more opposite, but they are both delightful in their own way and with each page, I couldn't decide who I adored more. The interactions that Celaena has with each of them is just perfection. We get to see different facets of her in her dealings with the boys. Oh. And there's magic. And evil stuff. And fighting. And mean boys who take my girl for granted. I'm already debating whether or not I want to just start this book over again right now. I can't wait for the hardcover and e-book to come out because I want ALL OF THE VERSIONS. That's how much I loved it.
