Convince us to read the book: The main character is very fascinating - she is one of my favorite things about the book - and two books into the series and we still haven't figured her out (not completely at least). The way Maas builds her characters is wonderful - each one is full of depth and each one is unique.
Memorable or Forgettable: In the middle of the book there was a scene that was by far the most intense scene I've read in a book. Each sentence rolled off the next in a way that was impossible to put down.
Cover: This cover caught my eye, and really was the reason I read the book. The cover accurately captured the feel of the book and was visually pleasing as well.
Age Range: 14 through 18 and up
Quality: 5Q Hard to imagine a better book
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
Annotation: Celaena is the best assassin in the land and now she works for the king, which she isn't too pleased about. But everything falls apart as the secrets pile up, as Celaena loses her control and everybody gets dragged into a war that might be bigger and more powerful than they imagined.
