I fell in love with the main character Celaena Sardonthien at first sight or better said as soon as i read her first lines. I really love when the main female character is strong, unyelding, beautiful and doesn't need others pity.

Like most of us Celaena was a bibliophile staying up until late at night to finish reding a book or sharing books with Dorian and Chaol.
“I like music," she said slowly, "because when I hear it, I . . . I lose myself within myself, if that makes any sense. I become empty and full all at once, and I can feel the whole earth roiling around me. When I play. I'm not . . . for once, I'm not destroying, I'm creating.”

Aelin Ashryver Galathynius

"Throw me to the wolves and i will return leading the pack."

Later her Fae origins come to light and also her real identity as Aelin Ashryver Galathynius the lost queen of Terrasen and the last surviving member of the Galathynius line.
