ACOTAR has been a great start to this series. I’d been warned that the start was a little slow (and it was a bit), but I’ve also trudged through many books that started slower, so this wasn’t that bad to me. Once it gets going it’s great though! Maas does a splendid job with character development, world building, and great plot twists that are well foreshadowed. 

Feyra’s character gets on my nerves a little bit—basically when she’s being all whinny, complaining, and melodramatic. Luckily she’s not like this in most of the scenes because when she is, it gets annoying super fast. I suspect—or hope—Maas has written her this way on purpose and that she grows and matures over the series. Because if not I may be hoping she gets killed off soon. The other characters are great though: Tamlin is awesome, but Lucian may be my favorite. And Rhys…I don’t trust him at all.

Średniawa, na końcu plot twist, którego każdy mógłby się spodziewać
w stylu Belli Swan
. Napisane jak wattpadowa historia, głębia postaci taka 2/10. Końcówka jakby nie było potrzebnej następnej części (przeczytam, tylko dlatego, że już kupiłam).
