“I always liked you. From the moment you first flipped me off.” -Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
Reccomended for: fans of Throne of Glass, nunneries, or series that are all told from a different characters’ point of view (which I rarely am)
Lately, I’ve been reading books about assassins, and this one was great! There were lots of surprises, and for the most part the story flowed really well. There were a couple of scenes were the action was hard to follow, but everything still made sense. The were a few things I totally missed until Ye happened, like the fact that Anne was only 12. I will definitely be reading the next book, but I’m sad to lose Ismae’s POV! Gavriel seems like a great match for her, and I would love to hear more about the two of them. He was a very full character that seemed pretty realistic, and I loved that the romance went from their loathing of each other, to the reader realizing that over time, they really began to like each other. I am sad that, in my opinion, there was not very much description of what the characters looked like, this makes me have a hard time picturing them. Occasionally a character would be called pretty or ugly, or old or heavy.
As the tagline says, why be the sheep when you can be the wolf?
