  7. I loved the first book! I think my favourite part of it all is Celaena and her badassery. And the snarky remarks. :D

  8. I think my favorite part is the relationship between Chaol/Celaena and Celaena/Nehemia :)! She is also one of my favorite MC's, because she is so flawed. Sensitive, yet kick-ass and I like where the plot is going to.

    I know I've commented before, but I keep getting confused by "a pre-order of The Assassin's Curse." Do you mean "The Assassin's Blade"? :D
