I liked this one but the PoV switch led to several problems for me. The switch was the main reason it took me so dang long to read and get into this one. It also just made it feel so different from Maas’ other books. I mean all of the books in Assassin’s Blade feel so off and different but this one especially. It was told mostly in a new character, Yrene’s, point of view. Celaena does have some PoV but it’s few and far between and even that feels so off from what it usually sounds like. So we were stuck with a random character’s PoV for 96% of the novel and that wasn’t working all that well for me.
