Book 2 of the Thorne of Glass series and I am still gripped in the story.
Celaena Sardothien is now the Kings champion and has been sent off to dispatch of people who the King believes are plotting against him. Celaena can’t kill for King after everything he has done to the people she loves. She has to be careful as the King has threaten to kill the people she cares about if she doesn’t complete her job.
The complex relationships between Celaena, Chaol and Dorian is so interesting, the dynamics has change from book one and keeps changing through this book. I am sad that Chaol and Dorian relationship isn’t as strong as before. They were brothers of choice not by blood and they feeling for Celaena has changed that. Although I am glad to see the growth of the characters, especially with Dorian as I didn’t want him to just be the Prince the pretty face of the book. It will be interesting to see with how he deals with his new abilities.
We find out more about Celaena origins in the book and I didn’t expect it, I was so engrossed in the story and Celaena finding out more about the Kings powers that when we find out I was surprised. I shouldn’t be surprised there were clues but there is so much going on in the book that you focus on the bigger story plots. Also I read reviews of the first book that criticise Celaena for her focus on appearance, I like the fact that she like to make an effort, because she is an Assassin doesn’t mean she can’t be girly. If I was in her place after spending a year in the mines I would want to feel beautiful again.
I am a dog person I am not going to lie I am got more upset over Fleetfoot over being hurt than anyone else getting hurt.
Now I am off to read Heir in Fire as I can’t wait to see what happens next especially after Chaol meddling.
Thanks for reading
