I loved this one. It made me laugh. It made me cry. The world that the author created for this series is so believable and so heartbreaking for the way anyone who is different is treated. I wish the ending was different but I'm not sure how I would have ended the stories of Alina and Mal and the Grisha. I would love to see a sequel set some time in their future.
