In part, I feel that the prince is a weak character. In spite of his learning and power, his personality seems a bit on the dull side. Maybe I'm just expecting too much of a geek, but I feel this weakness in him is what keeps Celaena holding him at arm's length. She knows she could walk all over him. While Chaol is off the charts in character and personality. He may not hold the same power that Dorian does, but he is the stronger character. Definitely a good match for Celaena. Now that the trio has gone to the edge and come back, they all have new directions to go in. In the next book, Heir of Fire, I'm hoping that I'll get more answers. Though I don't foresee all my questions being resolved since there's at least one more book in the series.
I purchased this ebook from Barnes and Noble for nook. This is an honest review. I am not being compensated in any way. All opinions are fully my own.
