Spoilers Suck: Queen of Shadows Edition

Spoilers Suck

UPDATE: FOR MY SPOILER DISCUSSION, CLICK HERE

MAJOR WARNING FOR QUEEN OF SHADOWS SPOILERS FROM TUMBLR AND GOOGLE BOOKS

PART 1: THE INIATION
So I was on tumblr yesterday, searching through the Queen of Shadows tag… I am so naive. I thought that I would be safe from the spoilers but instead I found a post saying that Rowan and Aelin are endgame and Dorian and Manon are a thing. When I first saw this, I was livid. The book isn’t even out for another TWO weeks and now I’m spoiled. But then I saw that this post was made by someone who often makes posts to say that Dorian is gonna die, so I thought it was fake.
Things I’ve learnt:
• Rowaelin is endgame *
• Dorian and Manon are a thing *
*Both unconfirmed

PART 2: THE SAMPLER
When I got home I saw that people were reading chapters one though seven of the book from google books, so I decided to check it out. Too bad that sampler is from a bunch of different chapters and basically spoils the whole entire book. Now, I didn’t know this while I was reading the sampler, so I ended up finding out that Aedion gets saved pretty early on and that Dorian and Manon were together?!?!? Well, Dorian was not controlled by the Valg while he was with her.
Then I found the seven chapter sampler everyone else had read and discovered that Chaol and Celaena were definitely not on good terms, which is to be expected. People seem to keep forgetting that they haven’t seen each other since the end of Crown of Midnight. Also, a lot of people seem to think the way they acted was out of character, which I disagree with. They’ve been through a lot, separately, which is going to drive a knife into their relationship.
Things I’ve learnt:
• Aedion is saved
• Dorian and Manon may actually happen?!?!?
• Chaol and Celaena are NOT best friends
• Nesryn is a badass and I love her
• No confirmation of Rowaelin

PART 3: I DON’T CARE ANYMORE
I’ve been spoiled too many times in one day, I’m giving in. I looked through the spoiler tags on tumblr (I only consider what I’ve read of the book confirmed) and discovered that Chaol is paralyzed and in a wheelchair, Aelin saves Dorian and they hold hands, the castle gets burnt down, and Dorian is now king. Oh, and A LOT of people talking shit about Rowan. Remember when Heir of Fire came out and everyone loved him? Yeah, well that’s not the case anymore. Personally, I wanted Aelin and Dorian to be endgame (I know I’m in the minority), but I just want Aelin to be with whoever makes her happy. I’m still in denial of this Dorian and Manon thing, though. I mean seriously?????
Things I’ve learnt:
• A paralyzed Chaol in a wheelchair *
• WE GET DORIAN BACK AND HE’S KING *
• Rowaelin is “problematic” *
• Still in denial of Dorian and Manon
*All unconfirmed

PART 4: IN CONCLUSION
In conclusion, I’m never going on tumblr again. Just kidding! But when Winter by Marissa Meyer comes out, I’m staying the heck away from that thing.
Also, I know a lot of people are already boycotting this book based on spoilers. We don’t even know if half of these are true! I’m still looking forward to Queen of Shadows, even though being spoiled sucks.
