Meanwhile, brutal and monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, intent on enslaving her world. To defeat them, Celaena must find the strength to not only fight her inner demons but to battle the evil that is about to be unleashed.
The king’s assassin takes on an even greater destiny and burns brighter than ever before in this follow-up to the New York Times bestselling Crown of Midnight.
This book gave new meaning to the word “hell” Hell is exactly what it is, its what you make of it. Your own suffering is hell, your own perspective will make hell. This book, it gave life to me. For anyone who suffered from depression and anxiety, the second half of the book speaks volumes of emotions that I couldn’t put to words during my darkness. When I was suffering in a hell of my own making, this book breathed fire into my veins. It will always be my favourite in this series. It made me SEE. See that I’m suffering because I don’t embrace my own imperfections and ugly past, I avoided it as much as I could. I ran, ran so far away until I can’t hear its beckoning.
“She had never contemplated what it would be like–to yield control. And not have it be a weakness, but a freedom.”
Don’t run from who you are, it will come back and bite you. Embrace every imperfection because all of us are perfectly imperfect. You’d think that I’m saying this because I’ve overcome the darkness inside of me, truth is that I’m still battling the obstacles. I am telling you this so that you know you aren’t alone in this fight. You could rattle the stars, you could do anything if you wished just do NOT be afraid. I love you, I am proud of you and I believe in you💖
