Sarah J. Maas is a literary beast, and I adore her. She claws these magical worlds out of chaos and serves them up still dripping in blood and angst. She holds nothing back and always progresses the story, with every scene and new character or creature.
I loved revisiting Chaol in this story, as so much happens after this point with his character, both good and bad. I was initially worried about reading TOWER OF DAWN (book 6), but I ended up absolutely loving it, which makes me extremely happy to be revisiting these novels again and remembering the early days of Chaol.
I still stand behind my original assessment that every book in this series is better than the one that came before, so make sure you have book 3 on hand by the time you finish book 2.
