Let me try to put into words how much I loved this book. I in no way think anything I'm about to say in this review will truly be able to convey the way I felt about this book.

Queen of Shadows was perfect. There was not one aspect of it I did not like. I read it 3 times to be sure that I truly just loved it and I wasn't just on some "The book I've been waiting for for almost a year in my favorite series is out" high. So, after I read it, reread it, and read it again I can assure you I was not just filled with love because it was the next book, or because I'd been waiting for it for so long, or because it was Sarah.

I am a ROWAELIN SHIPPER. YEP. And I wasn't one in HOF, I never even imagined them becomming anything more then friends. (I was also still rooting for Chaolena) BUT THEN IT STARTED HAPPENING AND I HOPPED ON TO THAT SHIP SO QUICK.

Uh, worries I have:
That Aelin will die. I swear if SJM pulls a VRoth on us I don't think I will be able to survive.
That Aelin and Dorian are mates. Okay I am just not an Aelin x Dorian shipper and never will be. But there were some things Aelin was thinking toward the end of QoS that got me worrying. Hopefully, I just read way too far into it (because that sort of thing happens when you read a book 3 times.)
Chaol wont be able to be healed. If Chaol can not walk I don't know what I'll do. Probably cry.

Heres the thing about Chaolena, Chaol loved Celena, not Aelin. He couldn't get over his prejudices and find it in him to love everything about her. Okay I'm going to quote some Grey's Anatomy now beacause this is what Chaol reminded me of
 Theres  a quote from one of the many love confessions on Grey's Anatomy that I really think applies to this situation which is "I love you. I always have. I love everything about you. Even the things I don't like, I love." Dorian said it best "You cannot pick and choose what parts of her to love." When he loved Celaena he couldn't love all of her. He was horrified by some of her actions and couldn't understand her or get over his prejudices. He was never going to end up with her (even though I really wanted them together.)

Things I do not want: I do not ship Dorian and Aelin.

MOSTLY, I JUST WANT AELIN TO DO HER THING. But I obviously won't have anything against Rowan staying along for the ride.

These books are about so much more then the ships, and I wou
