Finally finished it. I had a lot of problems with this book.
Pros: 1. Kristin Cashore had this way with writing that made me want to read the book all night. Its the way she wrote it, not the content though. 2. Liked the characters. Especially Po and Bitterblue.
Cons: 1. Hated the twists. They were not creative what so ever. 2. The author just threw bits and pieces of stuff in there. 3. It felt like they were going in circles the whole book. 4. Katsa, oh God how I hated Katsa. 5. Kristin Cashore dragged out the story more than it should have. 6. Leck, Po's eyes(at the end), Po giving Katsa his ring, just twists like that were boring. I think I already said that.
Overall, it was an okay book. Had a good plotline and everything. I for one, just wasn't a fan of it. I don't think I'll read Fire, but I might read Bitterblue.
