I was not impressed by this book. So many people said that it was a very good fantasy book. However, I just thought it was okay. Too much emphasis went into the "love triangle" aspect of the book for me to fully enjoy it. When the plot was being focused on, I thought it was just okay. Maas is a decent writer, though not really the best. I enjoyed some of the characters (except Dorian, I thought he was a prick) and I do think Celaena was a great protagonist. Chaol was my favorite. As well as Nehemia. Really the only one I couldn't stand was Dorian.
Anyway, long story short, I wasn't a fan of this book. It kept me entertained throughout most of it but it started to lose me towards the end of the book. I do think it's worth the read, just don't expect it to be a great fantasy series like most people were claiming it to be.
