Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy.

While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?

HOW DO I EVEN BEGIN? I seriously scorn myself for not starting this sooner. This book has been the best thing that has happened to me this month, and I’ve had a pretty awesome month if I do say so myself – that’s putting into perspective how totally freaking amazing this book is. I loved this book as much (if not more) than the previous ones, and I wasn’t even sure that was possible!

Warning: this review is obnoxiously long, and I can’t bring myself to shorten it.
I’m currently going through a major book hangover, so this review is full of pointless totally necessary gifs, and some fan art. 😛

LOVE. SEX. MAGIC.

Before her 20th birthday, Gabriella was pretty much clueless about all three. In love with her best guy friend since the age of 14 and too crass and intimidating for most of the male population of Colorado Springs, love and good sex were virtually a myth.

And then there’s magic. Freakin’ magic. There’s no way that legend could have a place in her less than exciting life. So why after twenty years of utter obscurity do her adopted parents hit her with the ton of bricks that is her true identity? And how the heck is she supposed to accept all this and become what she was truly created to be?

Lucky for Gabs, sexy as sin Dorian is more than equipped to help her embrace these new revelations. And while everything about him feels oh so good, she soon learns that there’s more behind his crystal blue eyes, chiseled body and exotic beauty. Something dark, menacing and downright unnatural. Yet Gabs is in way too deep to even try to turn away from him now.

Dark Light, Book 1 of the Dark Light Series, is the raw, emotional story of a young woman’s journey of self-discovery in a world that was not meant for her. And her scorching hot, lip-biting addiction for the man she can’t deny, no matter the cost.

 

My Review

I COULDN’T FINISH THIS BOOK. I really couldn’t. My first DNF. It’s been on my shelf for a long time (yay I’m sticking to my TBR list for once) and it’s one of the few New Adult books on there, so I was looking forward to reading it. I was expecting it to be so much better. I mean, how long should I give a book before I give up, all the while resisting the urge to throw my Kindle against the wall? Because I gave it a whole 50% and I got absolutely nothing. I couldn’t read anymore. What a waste of my time. The characters, the story, the… Oh jeez, everything was bad.
