i read this one after crown of midnight as i saw suggested (because it would be emotionally more). well im not sure about that because then you know 
Spoiler Sam
is gonna die and it kinda takes away from the "omg they're dead nooooo". BUT i did like the little dorian and chaol cameo lmao that was funny. 

i did enjoyed the novellas too, they were pretty cool. Celaena was more annoying and arrogant in this than in the books, but i guess its normal and i appreciate the character development because after all the shit she went through.

BUT LIKE ALSO YOU DUMB BITCH HOW THE FUCK DO YOU STILL NOT THINK AROBYNN IS THE ONE BEHIND ALL OF THE SHIT THAT HAPPENED TO YOU, LIKE REALLY?? He kept fucking lying to you, manipulating you, beating you, like every fucking thing and you're still like "no arobynn is innocent he wouldnt betray me because im his favourite" BITCH YOU ARE HIS FUCKING TOOL. HE DOESNT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOU, HE WANTS TO FUCKING OWN YOU, JUST LIKE HE FUCKING DID LYSANDRA BTW, urgh i was disgusted by that, lysandra seems like a bitch but is she really idk. she didnt seem not to care but honestly im not sure, having your first time with that fucking ass. i guess at least he's kinda hot...

anyway what else was there, ah, ansel. 
Spoiler Bro i was kinda mad she was the villain... i really wanted them to be besties, but who knows maybe we'll see her again in the future 
 
oh and yrene, honestly again because i know some of the stuff from spoilers i saw online, i know we'll see her again. but it was nice meeting her and even if i didnt know she would be definitely appearing, i would wish it. 

and lastly sam. my baby. honestly i really liked sam, he was really sweet, hot as hell, understanding like honestly he put up with so much shit from celaena lmao, he's a saint. 
Spoiler im really sad he's dead. honestly even tho we saw him the least i prefer him over dorian and chaol. also i mean i understand why she didnt have sex with him but im kinda mad that she had her first time, which she considers something important, with chaol and not sam... like ok im being mean chaol is a good dude, but like if she had to choose between sam and chaol i hope she would have picked sam because he was really sweet and she really loved him, more than she loved chaol i think 
 

anyway, i enjoyed the book a lot and i think it does give some insight into celaena's character and on some shit that happens later
