SYNOPSIS: (According to my husband, who has NOT read the book — see how well he listens to my bookish ramblings)
In a world where gladiators are rampant there is a girl who becomes an assassin for the King. She is the girl on the cover and she is cool because she wears a red cape. So she is sent out to kill people but doesn’t. Instead she finds random body parts from other dead people and brings them back to the King. Meanwhile she finds some hot dude and they start banging all over the place.

He treasures her and it is made so obvious in the way he touches her and the words he uses to express his feelings. He also brings out his fighting skills this time around. This guy is a sexy beast! DORIAN continues to prove to be a stand up guy. He cares deeply for Celaena. His jealousy is pretty hot too. Plus, there is more to him than we initially thought. He steps up to the plate and gets his hands dirty when needed. Balls out!
- THE SWAGGER – This book was intense! I was flying through the pages, not only grinning over the beautiful relationship developing between Chaol and Celaena, but over the suspense of an amazing plot that is being unraveled piece by piece! I loved learning more about the magic of this world, as well the people who use it and abuse it!
