My reviews are just so serious and essay-like and you all know I’m not all like that! I’m starting a series where I let out my inner fangirl on this blog and be the usual capslock and exclaimation point loving bookworm I am!
Warning!!! Contains spoilers *gasp*
What better book to start with than A Torch Against the Night? Let’s just say, it left me in freaking pieces. Or rather, the pieces of my BROKEN SHIPS!
Keenan. Oh my gosh I LOVED THAT BOY! He was so rough and serious but also gentle at the right moments, his smiles so rewarding and rare. I honestly fell in love with him and yes, I admit it, preferred him over Elias. Then it turned out that my little flaming cinnamon roll was the NIGHTBRINGER! And…and SHE HAD SEX WITH HIM! I was so horrified because that’s like doing it with a dementor. It was such. a. shock. and I am still so sad about that.
Elias. HE DIED?! I thought that Helene would heal him with her magical singing powers (I would love to have those powers but I can’t sing note: that doesn’t mean I DON’T sing), but he just died. Sure, he became the ruler of the Waiting Place but he’s tied there forever in all eternity. I shipped Laia and Keenan, but I also shipped Laia/Helene and Elias but that would be as impossible as dating an immortal (Aelin, looking at you!). Which ship sunk more? At least I’m not horrified about Elias and am just sad.
I feel that Elias and Laia don’t belong together. He is so serious and strong and old beyond his years, while she’s so gentle and soft and young. Polar opposites can work, but with them, I don’t feel like they really know each other! On the other hand, Helene and Elias are like Rowan and Aelin (two Throne of Glass references? Don’t mind if I do!): they’re like twin swords, perfectly coordinated and dangerous together. Their only problem is their differing views on the Empire, but I feel that Helene can change! I DON’T need another sunken ship!
What do you all think? Let’s fangirl!!!
