What I Liked:
The decision he made! He’s actually a good person even though he’s a hit man. He chose to not take Ronan to be killed and used by Greenmantle. He chose to do what was right because even though his life is based on killing, he understands life and actually has feelings.
The hint of Gansey and Blue liking each other.
If only, if only, they could be together. And if only they could kiss. That would make my life 10 times easier. But no, Blue is sort of with Adam (?) and if she were to kiss Gansey, she’d kill him. That scene with them on the mountain was the cutest thing ever, my heart was exploding when I read it. It was also crying.
What I Didn’t Like:
He was a brat. The whole time until he saved Ronan and everyone by fixing the ley line. He was angry at everything and changed so much due to sacrificing himself to Cabeswater. It may not have been his choice but he seemed to avoid a lot of things. Then when he came to the thing, he went haywire! I didn’t get his behavior through most of the book. And he still hasn’t apologized to Gansey for being so bad to him in D.C.
Adam and Blue’s relationship.
It was never a real relationship. Let’s be real. Adam could never commit to anything, so how is he going to commit to a relationship. He’s to problematic right now for anyone really.
Such a beautiful and edge-of-your-seat book. I couldn’t let go sometimes because I need to know that all would be okay. I was scared that something wouldn’t go the right way. I honestly thought Ronan was going to die. It kept me wrapped in its pages and it still does, with that ending.
5/5 stars. 10/10 stars. (Quite a perfect read in my opinion).
