Honestly I was quite anxious to read this book. Good reviews and five star ratings make me uneasy and I feel like sometimes readers can be blinded because of their love for an author.

Thankfully my fears were groundless. I know this book is very long but after I finished it I can really say that every page was worth it. The story itself is now so complex with so many characters and so many motives, that you have to have enough time with each party.

This book is the one that lets the female characters in this book shine. I cannot even tell you which one is my favorite because I don’t have one. No matter if it is Aelin or Lysandra, Manon or Nesryn. The women in this book kick ass and are the main reason why I enjoyed it the way I did.

I cannot wait for the next book but I’m also quite torn about the fact that there are in fact two more books. Torn because I feel like it would take one book to finish the story but I guess we will be left hanging with a cliffhanger in the next book to drag the story out. I do hope that I'm wrong with this assumption.

PS: Still not a Rowan fan.

"Wir sind hier doch nicht in einem Stephen King Roman!"

Richtig! Aber man fühlt sich wie in einem. Denn ganz ehrlich es erinnert schon sehr stark an den Meister des Horrors. Tolles Hörbuch, sehr gute Sprecher. Nachdem ich mir den ersten Tag gratis geholt habe, musste ich mir den Rest des Hörspiels auch noch holen. Super spannend bis zum Schluss.

Einen Stern weniger gibts dafür, dass zwar die Hauptgeschichte mehr oder weniger befriedigend zu Ende gebracht wurde aber andere Dinge einfach nicht mehr geklärt wurden.

Ich hoffe jetzt mal ganz stark auf einen weiteren Teil dieser Geschichte.

First of all I have to say that I watched The Girls Next Door and Holly was my favorite by far. So naturally I had to get the book.

Do I think that Holly probably exaggerated a bit? Sure, but who cares? It is a very entertaining book and hearing it from Holly herself was a treat, especially how she imitated the other girls in the mansion. Also it was quite fascinating to hear what was going on in that house. Some facts actually really shocked me.

And also the references to Lewis Carroll were a nice recurring theme throughout the book.

The Winter Queen of Faerie has manipulated Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden into accepting a case to solve a murder and stop a war between the courts of Summer and Winter that could have literally earth shattering consequences. His own soul is up for grabs. Dresden must dig deep to discover that at time a willingness to accept a little help from your friends, be they a cub pack of werewolves, old loves in sheep's clothing, or a battalion of pizza loving dewdrop fairies, is a very good thing.

Honestly I don't want to read a Harry Dresden book anymore, I just want to listen to it. James Marsters does an amazing job reading those books. Even when I'm reading it I hear his voice in my head. He IS Harry.

The story unfortunately was a bit confusing but nonetheless enjoyable.

That book was such a fun read. You don't often come across zombies like Angel. Yes, I have read other novels that had semi-human zombies in it that were fun but this one is I think the best one yet.

Other than the fact that it is deliciously filled with dark humor it actually has a real darkness and fully human side to it when it comes to Angel's background. She lived her life as blind as you can be. Only when she gets turned into a living corpse does she understand that her life actually had no meaning. She grows so much that I was really proud of her.

I have to say that the narrator of this audiobook is fabulous!!! I think without her it would not have been that amazing! Love the southern accent so much!

New York City has been decimated by war and plague, and most of civilization has migrated to underground enclaves, where life expectancy is no more than the early 20s. When Deuce turns 15, she takes on her role as a Huntress, and is paired with Fade, a teenage Hunter who lived Topside as a young boy. When she and Fade discover that the neighboring enclave has been decimated by the tunnel monsters—or Freaks—who seem to be growing more organized, the elders refuse to listen to warnings.

I'm a huge fan of Fallout 3 therefore I liked the setting because it really reminded me of this awesome game. The problem that I had: I did not like the main character. (Yes sweetheart you are a huntress, we get it! You don't have to tell us every time that you are indeed a huntress.) Although I didn't like Deuce I kind of warmed up to Fade because his story was way more interesting than Deuce's. Unfortunately that wasn't enough.

I'm just not interested enough in the story after reading the first book and I thought the ending was a real slap in the face for readers because the cliffhanger was placed to lure people in to buy the next book, which I won't be doing since it felt like the book actually had another chapter or two but the publishing house decided to break it up and cash in on a sequel.

Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

One thing I absolutely admired when reading a Gillian Flynn novel is the diversity of characters. You can never say that she can only write on particular woman or man. Amy (Gone Girl) is completely different from Camille (Sharp Object) or Libby (Dark Places). Every woman has her own story, her own character, her own fears or psychological problems.

Although for me this time around I kind of had a feeling who was behind it, I can never get it completely right with Gillian’s plot twists which is a good thing because I get bored very easily with less than smart crime stories.

I really like the multiple prospectives because they really help you figuring out why those people do the things they do. Otherwise it would be too easy to make Libby the ever so poor victim, Ben the murderous brother and Patty the absolutely incompetent mother which is not true. All of those three have more to it than it shows at first. My favorite POV by far was Patty because she really thought she was doing all she can to get her kids through.

Gillian Flynn really got me hooked and I’m looking forward to the next book.

Celaena Sardothien is her kingdom's most feared assassin. Though she works for the powerful and ruthless Assassin's Guild, Celaena yields to no one and trusts only her fellow killer for hire, Sam. When Celaena's scheming master, Arobynn Hamel, dispatches her on missions that take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, she finds herself acting independently of his wishes - and questioning her own allegiance. Along the way, she makes friends and enemies alike, and discovers that she feels far more for Sam than just friendship.

#1 - The Assassin And The Pirate Lord
The first story of the novellas is more like an introduction to the story of Celaena and Sam. I forgot how arrogant she can be but we also get that she has ideals. This story is the weakest one of the bunch.

#2 - The Assassin And The Healer
My favorite so far. And for a split second we see another glimpse of Celaena’s caring side. Nice story.

#3 - The Assassin And The Desert
Although boring in the beginning I kind of warmed up to the story - not to Ansel though. In my head I was really rooting for Celeana to kill her and be over with it because I didn’t buy that whole „we are good friends“ bs. I kind of think that we will see Ansel in future stories (though I really hope not).

#4 - The Assassin And The Underworld
I just about had it with Arobynn. Why did I think going into this short story collection that Arobynn was a father figure to Celaena? How can somebody be such an asshole to you when he brought you up? Well, if you hadn’t have any feelings for Celaena I think this story will help you with it.

#5 - The Assassin And The Empire
Although I knew how this story is going to end I sobbed anyway. Pour Sam, pour Celaena. I really hope she can get her revenge on Arobynn. This story really sets the stage for the first novel in the series.

***

Although not all stories were perfect, I enjoyed them very much. The only thing that really bothered me in the beginning was how naiv Celaena was but then I corrected myself: she is a girl not a grown woman and everyone has to learn somewhere, unfortunately Celaena has to learn the hard way.
