Hear ye, hear ye all who seek adventure, ass-kicking and romance come forth! The second installment doth not disappoint! Our heroine is back as the King's Champion so expect action galore. Hear ye, hear ye . . .
Her lovely dresses and ornate clothes were gone, replaced with an unforgiving, close-cut black tunic and pants. Her hair pulled back in a long braid that fell into the folds of that dark cloak she was always wearing. She was a beautiful wrath …

SO GOOD. THE ENDING. OH MY GOSH. MIND BLOW.
Oh, goodie gumdrops!
What do I see? 2013. You must be kidding me!
Love triangle. Ehh, I like Dorian. I really do. But I'm Team Chaol all the way. He won my heart after ball.
Alright, so I just wanted to add that (while I won't discuss them here) I did decide to scour a good bit of spoiler material for the following books.

Ten(ish) years ago, before the explosion of hair removal services, I used to go to this tiny South Korean lady who rented a space in a nearby salon. The moment she got me in her room, she'd keep up a constant stream of very bad English. The only thing she said that I could understand was, "Oh my GAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH." This was also her favorite thing to say, so I heard it a lot.
That's how I feel after finishing this book.
Oh my GAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH.
