It’s official, this book is my favorite fantasy book of all time. Ahhh I love this so much I just can’t. It’s such a unique book. The plot, the characters, just everything. I truly can’t believe this only has a 4.43 average rating. Poor book. Anyways.
These are some of my favorite characters of all time. They’re all original and well developed, and I just love them. Not equally. But. I still love all of them. What I wouldn’t do to have Nina’s confidence, Jesper’s humor, Wylan’s… flute playing abilities?, Inej’s stealth, and Kaz’s- well Kaz-ness. Also, updated rankings: Nina, Jesper, Matthias, Wylan, Inej, Kaz. Nina being my favorite of course. All hail queen Nina.
One thing I love about this book is how the backstories are perfectly woven in. Not to mention that they’re perfection at its best 👌. I don’t know when the last time I read a book where the backstories were as great as they are in this book. Whenever a book ends up switching back and forth in time I either get super confused, super bored, super annoyed, or all of the above. Mostly that last one. Not this book. These backstories are also very exciting and fun, I could just read these over and over and not get bored. I could read a whole book simply about their backstories. Btw, best backstory award goes to Nina and Matthias. Perfection.
Oh and then I almost forgot the heist itself. Amazing. Very well described, and I appreciate the fact that there are problems and things go wrong, that’s definitely not what would happen if other authors wrote it. I think it was realistic to be honest, and it could get a little bit confusing at times but what book doesn’t? Other than that I don’t know what to say.
Well thank you for coming to my ted talk, that was a really dry review but oh well, it is what it is and it also could’ve been a major session of me fangirling which wouldn’t have been good 😂. Anyway, adios and until the next sad review!
