Ugh. Love triangle. Annoying MC. Thank the Goddesses for Chaol Westfall.

Warning: Long Celaena bashing ahead. I am just too disappointed in her. Just so very disappointed. I couldn’t contain myself. I just have to let all these negativity out or I’ll burst!

This is the sequel to Alice which I reviewed here

I was actually expecting something more darker than the first one but this was surprisingly mild. Still had some creepy and disturbing parts but the dark violence in the first book  is gone. Spoilers ahead.

First of all, I haven’t read Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Still, I have watched movies and read several rendition of the story and it’s one of the classic tales I am very fond of.

I am a sucker for fairy tale/myth retellings so when I discovered this book, I couldn’t shake it out of my head and I knew I just had to read it. So I did.

Trigger Warning: This book contains mentions of rape, child abuse, cannibalism, violence and suicide
