(Throne of Glass è BOOKS) By Sarah J. Maas – noapathway.co.uk
Thieves and assassins in the land says the back of my book conveniently forgetting that a right before the final duels the king specifically states that the competitors can wi Sorry but it looks like I ve been excited for NOTHING After enticing me with its promises of a reading experience reminiscent of Megan Whalen Turner and George RR Martin Throne of Glass ultimately let me down Having been excited for this novel for weeks and actually liking the sample I read I ave been brought back to earth now with a jolt This YA fantasy is a rather sorry example of its genreI ave the notion that a big part of this book did *Not Work For Me Because * work for me because its eroine Celeana is smart athletic talented and beautiful She loves music and reading She is fluent in different languages She is great And she knows it And rubs it in your face repeatedly As do Soldados del Multiverso: Guerreros del pasado (Guerras del Multiverso n 2) her suitors and admirers Iad the feeling that Sarah J Maas tried everything to make me love On Disgust hereroine How do you make readers love someone Present them with a book lover But somehow she accomplished the opposite I did not loathe Celaena but she grated on my nerves I wished someone would tell A Dirty Wedding Night: A Dirty Rockstar Romance Collection (Dirty, Book 2.5) her off would for once not granter every wish I wished the characters I liked would not fall for New Menopausal Years her charms and good looks The little romance Celaenaad I won t say with whom was laughable at best and mostly resulted in me rolling my eyes at the fact that the only attraction that existed between those two stemmed from them both being beautifulIn terms of plot I cannot deny that there was always a level of suspense present I did want to know Faja (Naslouchač, how this story ended and yes there were actually parts when I feared the whole thing would not end well partly because my belovederoine did not deem it necessary to inform certain people about what she ad witnessed in the castle Overall though the story remained a tad too juvenile and simple for me Important events were mentioned only in passing and the mythology did not go any further than what was important for the main were mentioned only in passing and the mythology did not go any further than what was important for the main line Many things remained unsaid doubtlessly for the sake of seuels yet to come but it was not the subtle way of remaining unsaid but inted at I love in fantasy novels it felt like remaining unsaid to lure me into reading on There were aspects I liked Celaena s friendship to Nehemia the Eyllwe princess and Chaol the loyal and fierce captain of the guard but in the end there isn t enough to make me interested in reading any seuelsIn short what I wanted A less is mentality World building that does not only cover what is necessary to follow the main story arc Subtle romance Villains in different shades of grey Assassins that actually assassinate And do not only sit in their room talking or thinking about clothes and boys What I got A vain and mostly unlikeable Dirty Work heroine Two men absolutely bedazzled byer presence Hints of a love triangle Lots and lots of descriptions of clothing Flimsy world building An overall poor execution writing wise Thank you Next Thanks a lot to Netgalley and Bloomsbury for the review copy Characters were badly written the plot was full of telling instead of showing Very underwhelmed after Hearts Farthings hearing for years that this was THE YA series to read I don t mind unlikeable characterseck I love them but it didn t feel I was supposed to dislike our main snowflake So tired of the strong female character who can kill everyone in a The Mount Shasta Mission heartbeat but she s tiny and incredibly pretty sheates all other women and Oh also everyone wants Little Darlings her just becauseFor details and uotesere s my reading vlog WHAT I WAS EXPECTINGWHAT I GOT. Eelnemers van Greenwich het toernooi echter op gruwelijke wijze vermoord en al snel vecht Celaena niet alleen vooraar vrijheid maar ook voor aar lev.
