~ Thank you to Edelweiss and HarperTeen for providing me with an early copy for review! Release date: May 12 ~
I went into this with some pretty average expectations, and I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised. While I was expecting a light story of high school kids with a little magic, The Fascinators actually provided valuable commentary on prejudice in a way I've never seen done before.
I'm not sure if this is an entirely original idea, but it is my first time r
I- I'm mildly broken. For series like this where I love the books more and more because of how much it expands and how much more I become connected to the characters, I just never know what to say. How could I possibly sum up my feelings from 565 pages into a brief review? That I loved all the different featured perspectives when I wasn't expecting to? That I now have deep emotional attachment to a wyvern named Abraxos? I don't think it's possible, or at least not possible to
'Do they still sing songs of my victory?' August choked.
'They do. And they’ll crescendo like beacons to the farthest reaches. With every new breath of life that forms in a world without darkness that came at the price of your hands and your mind.'
What is up with me reading the WEIRDEST books during quarantine? Seriously, this was so strange.

Dorian really grew on me in this installment, which is interesting consi
This was... very strange. Admittedly, I still very much enjoyed it. It's hard to describe my feelings on a collection of stories that vary so greatly. The standouts in here (to me) were "A Cautionary Tale" by Stephanie Kuehn, "A Ruthless Dame" by Tim Floreen, and oddly enough, "Big Brother" by E.C. Myers. I really appreciate what this book set out to do and the overall construction of it was very interesting.
Some stories were severely weird. And I don't mean that lightly.
This is undeniably a 5 star read. I see what past me was thinking, wanting to leave room for the books to get even better, but I'm over that. This book deserves 5 stars because I love everything about it.
Maas's ability to weave plot-lines together is incredible, and the characters in this series have my whole heart. Celaena is amazing on her own, but I also do love Dorian and Chaol (I think Chaol just a little bit more hehe). I am also very intrigued by Nehemia and her po
