YES. HELL YES. This book was intense. The feels, the magic and suspense, the danger, the romantic drama - everything about this book was amplified. Bigger somehow, like Stacia Kane injected it with a big ol' dose of steroids. It's definitely my favorite of the series so far, and it's also the one where Chess really, truly, and totally won me over. I liked her before, but she really shines in City of Ghosts and I can now say without reservation that I love her character (flaws and all). And Terrible - even when he's hurting and lashing out, he is amazeballs. I heart him so much it's embarrassing ;) 5 very well-deserved stars!
