So my first Sarah J. Maas book. I’m not unimpressed. I like her writing style and I liked all the side characters but I don’t like Celaena. I have a lot of problems with her. While she does have good morals, she lets them get in the way of being a good assassin. Reading this book, she wasn’t very kickass, she was very, very soft. Also, throughout the novelas, her only accomplishments that she ever listed were the ones she did in the book: freeing slaves and etc. I really don’t see the cold-blooded season. And I don’t think that she is a progressive character either, because the only thing that separates her from many male stereotypes is the fact that she likes cosmetics. People can be beautiful without makeup and wanting to be pretty shouldn’t be the only girlish quality of a progressive character. A progressive character should celebrat what is good about being a woman, not just be able to hit people.
