Overall is good, the second part of the story dragged on quite a bit, wordy and repeated information had me speeding the speech up but very glad the series is finally over.

The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don't. As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Overall an amazing and enjoyable story.

HOWEVER I must say that the last part of the story made me fast forward quite a lot at how much one thing is being repeated by multiple characters, as well as how long it dragged on for.

I loved it regardless and can't wait for it to finally come to an end with KOA.

After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king's contest to become the new royal assassin. But Calaena is far from loyal to the crown. Keeping up the charade - while pretending to do the king's bidding - will test her skills in an entirely new way. And it certainly isn't the only point of confusion for the young girl. Because though she's made her choice between Dorian and Chaol, the ways of the heart are never simple...

First book was okay, this was good, and the preview for the next book? oh my god I'm hooked.

I'm glad I gave in and bought the first book, there are a lot of negative reviews on the series but people usually only complain when they don't like something.

Excited for the next book, and the next.

I have been hesitant to purchase this book due to all the reviews I have read, but after finishing the first book, I'm happy to say its not as awful as I imagined, its actually quite nice.

The story is interesting, though there are some aspect that made me roll my eyes but do remember it is a YA book put in age 11-13 section.

I didn't like the so many POV of the book, you'd think POV is for important characters but in this case i feel like it was just to fill up more chapters.

The romance aspect too was a bit forced, in my opinion.

Overall though it is still a nice read, I heard that it does get better in the later books so that's where i am going.

When Nadia's family moves to Captive's Sound, she instantly realizes there's more to the place than meets the eye. Descended from witches, Nadia can sense that a spell has been cast over the tiny Rhode Island town - a sickness infecting everyone and everything in it. The magic at work is darker and more powerful than anything she's come across and has sunk its claws most deeply into Mateo...her rescuer, her friend, and the guy she yearns to get closer to even as he pushes her away.

Performance from the VA is excellent as per usually, tbh she was the reason why I decided to give this a go.

The story itself is nice, predictable and cliche but nothing wrong with that. A teenage read I'm too old for.

I have mixed feelings though on the several POV from the characters, I much rather it just focus on Nadia and Mateo, I don't really care about anyone else

the story had a promising beginning, but as the it go on, the motives of the characters and 'the big reveal' for what kates father did what he did, it was a let down to say the least. and the final boss reveal? who the heck even is that?!

the voice actor did an excellent job non the less, the magic and world building too is great but its the back and forward relationship with the two protagonist that made me struggle to finish it. its somewhat irritating to be honest, I don't think I'd be purchasing the sequel

Struggling to finish it thanks to the selfish, arrogant and privileged female protagonist she claims not to be.

Mild spoilers here, but she ran away from home because she doesn't want to marry someone she doesn't know, understandable. but that started a war and all she could say is "I don't care"?

she lied to her friend about her cheating lover being dead because she thought it would be better for her but we all know that is just going to go down hill when her friend finds out the truth

she pretty much falls in love for no other reason than desperation for love

Perhaps this story is written for younger audience, I just can't bare to go hear anymore of it

Willa has never been a particularly useful dweller: she isn’t very good at chores, she isn’t very good at worshiping, she isn’t very good at not having opinions, and she isn’t very good with rules - but none of that matters anymore. The rules are changing. The dwellers are trying to make their own way in the world, and Willa can’t seem to help getting tangled up in their plans. Luckily, she has the Abcurse brothers to help her out - until she doesn’t, and suddenly she’s alone again in a world on the brink of chaos.

One girl 5 men, that sort of story might sound like a good read for some people... But not for me.

I really enjoyed the first book and bought the next two avaliable right as I finished it. Second book was ok and the third... I just can't take it anymore.

The fact that nudity is a norm is just bizzard to me. The fact that one girl is sexually attracted to 5 males and everyone is okay with that, makes listening to it unbearable. And for everything else in the story... the romance between the 6 seem over rule everything else and contains no substance imo.

Maybe I'm just too old for this?

The voice really threw me off and had me worried. At first.

But as I get deeper into the story, I adjusted to the new narrator and could not stop listening! I thoroughly enjoyed the series and am super excited for more related books coming out in the future.
