Favourite book of series so far

I have listened to this book twice now and I found that the second time round there were a lot of little things that I missed the first time, or that suddenly it clicked and my understanding of bits and pieces became clearer.
The stories are well written enough that despite there being now many, many characters in play you know each of them on a personal level and could reel off a few facts or personality traits of each, making you fully engage and empathise or understand each character.
I do have to say that I am finding the arrogance of Aelin to become quite irritating now and would like to see the author allow her to be more humble or at least attempt to listen to her companions, rather than storming around like a petulant teenager doing what she wants in temper and getting all her own way, and all the much, much older and experienced characters seem to just let it happen as if it's totally okay. I hope it doesnt continue in such a way because it is getting a little unrealistic (if you can call any fantasy story realistic, you know what I mean!)
But otherwise, I have read Tower of Dawn (not as interesting) and eagerly away the next book to find out what happens next

Confused fan fiction

Not impressed with this book in the series. Actually found it quite confusing, had to re-listen to sections to figure out what was going on. Just seemed to jump around all over the place. But the main thing that detracted from the enjoyment were the sex scenes. Jeez, I like a guilty pleasure mills & boon novel with the best of them but not when I haven't signed up for them. Whole chapters made up of the beautiful couples having endless orgasms. Every man is an Adonis, & every woman is scarred in some way but nothing that will detract from her beautiful face & amazing body, ugh ok we get it!
