Review: When I heard that Sarah J. Maas was officially taking the leap into New Adult/Adult Fiction, I was dying to get a copy of this book.  I didn’t want to get my hopes up too much, but darn it, Maas exceeded my expectations.  I LOVED this book.  In fact, I think that New Adult Fiction is really her jam.  Considering that her YA series have a tendency to tip into this realm, it wasn’t really that much of a leap, but I am glad she finally just stopped flirting with that line and crossed it.

Maas has a lot of dark content in her YA books, and this book goes just a bit darker.  It has been awhile since a book has made me cry, and more than once this book had me in tears.  Two scenes in particular were just so damn beautiful, they haunt me still.  Interestingly, it wasn’t even the romance that evoked this level of emotion in me, but rather the friendships.  The friendships in this book are by far it’s strongest element.  If I am being honest, the romance followed her typical formula, so no surprises there, and her heroine is very reminiscent of Celaena .  BUT I DON’T EVEN CARE.  Somehow she made it work and I can’t wait for the next book in the series to be released (or even announced for that matter).

If they adapted this book into a movie I would fangirl so hard.  I am not usually one to fancast, but I envision Madelaine Petsch as Bryce Quinlan.
