Wow this was a wild ride.

Props to the author for killing off a bunch of characters at the beginning (I honestly thought they were going to get resurrected, since there was a decent amount of time dedicated to them).

Then there's the usual "wow this guy is scary and bad but this quirky girl doesn't care!" And then they fall in love etc.

It felt like the plot twist where Hunt was caught buying drugs came out of nowhere and it all went downhill fast from there. Not sure why Bryce was like "I'm going to do something smart" and then proceeds to try and beg to exchange his life for hers (how is that in any way smart, that is SO DUMB).

And then the final battle, it was like everyone was sitting around watching on a Zoom call as she fought Micah by herself? Like what? The battle was actually kind of cool but that really ruined it.

And then the classic "wow she actually had powers and is like the most powerful person ever!! The chosen one!!". The end.

Really dumb, but I guess Sarah J Maas is kind of like a trashy guilty pleasure at this point lol.
