I’m proud and glad that I finally read these novellas. Some were disappointing, but I’m still glad I read them all. We get to see a side of Celaena that has only been hinted at in the full length novels.
I highly suggest you don’t read this review if you haven’t at least read the Mortal Instruments series. There’s spoilers in Lady Midnight from all previous book series – TMI, Infernal Devices, Shadowhunter Academy, etc..
This book had me tantalized. It sucked me in and wouldn’t let go. At one point my fiancé said something to me and I looked up with crazed eyes. Then he guiltily looked away. I was that absorbed! I just needed to know what was coming next. I guessed but was never right.
This story was cute. Not the best West book in my opinion, but maybe the best character building when it comes to our MC Lily.
Let me preface by saying that Rose Petal Graves was not my cup of tea. I was mislead by the description, I despised the main character Catori and I was overwhelmed by all the characters and side plots.
Wow. Seriously though… wow!!! If Empire of Storms is but a taste of the end, I don’t know if I’ll make it through book 6. I barely made it through book 5.
I quickly and easily became invested in The Girl at Midnight. From the moment I met our MC Echo I knew I was going to like her. Echo is sassy and smart. She’s gotten a raw deal in life but still perseveres.
