Author: Leigh Bardugo
Genera: YA, Fantasy

** spoiler alert ** This is more of a rant than a review, sorry in advance*

     Oh my gosh, I LOVED this book! I read the whole thing in less than a day! And for once in my life there was a book where my shipping actually came true! Team Mal all the way! I was rooting for him and then the Darkling kissed her and I'm like "dang it!" But then he turned all evil and I'm like yesss! But not yes cause ya know evil...bad... Anyways I am so glad she ended up with Mal cause I loved him from the beginning and it makes me happy that an author pick the best friend and not the hot new mysterious guy that ALL other love triangle books pick. Because it's just so common like for example the hunger games, and the selection, the girl picks the new guy and not the best friend which just KILLS me! I'm like "he KNEW you longer and UNDERSTANDS you and you pick another guy?! Ugh!!" 

Oh I'm soooo happy that she ended up with Mal and not The Darkling! 
    I loved the plot and the characters and the storyline, basically the whole book. What a plot twist when we found out the bad guy was the Darkling! Like Omg! I did not see it coming (and I usually do)! Can't wait to get my hand on the second one! Yeeeeeeep! A MUST READ!
