Hi, hello I’m here to talk about the amazingness of V.E. Schwab. I’m late to the party!

Let me tell you about why I love this book. There is a magical tournament. There is a massive reveal of sorts at the end too. It’s all I need in my books. Not all I need, but it does make things a pretty easy buy for me. Seriously you can probably convince me to read anything with magical tournaments in it.

What can I say about this book that hasn’t been said? First of all this is an awful cliffhanger ending. It’s the worst, but I’m relieved I waited to read it until all three books were out. Seriously I could not have handled that wait like my friends did.

Second we get to see Lila become an even more awesome person. I really adore her as a character.

What I adore even more though is Schwab’s writing. She manages to build a world so rich I feel like I’m in it as I listen to this book and work away my days.  I find it hard to expand too much on the plot of this one since it hinges so heavily on the first book.

My one like sad thing is I wished for more romance between Kell and Lila. I’ve been told that book 3 has the pay off I’m looking for and I guess I’ll find out soon!
