Worst installment in this series

I've mostly enjoyed this series so far. But this is the first time I've found myself pressing the fast forward button. The author just spends way too much time describing sex. I mean, this is not a romance novel, right? But it seems like she wanted to make it one. Some good story development does happen in the book--actually a lot does get explained--but the story, in my opinion, could have been a lot better if someone had cut the sex scenes down to one-tenth their lengths. At this point, I would not bother reading the next book if it is like this one. This one was just too disappointing, as I felt I just could not enjoy it.

Emotional, Stressful and Wonderful

I've noticed trends in a lot of the YA scifi books that I've read, particularly those with a strong female lead, and this series follows all of them. It has the usual love stories, and the usual rise from the lower class, and a strong female protagonist - which to be clear, I always enjoy, AND, this book still managed to give you a plot line to love, even though you've kind of heard it all before. This particular book shows how much Aelin Galathynius has grown and how strong she truly is.

This book was extremely sexual, more so than any of the books prior, and I would not recommend it for the 11-13 age group. There were many sex scenes and sexual conversation and situations, so I think parents should use their own judgement.

I'm thrilled with this book, I wish I waited until the next book in the series was also released, because this is a doozy.
