GoodreadsBook Depository.


Celaena has survived deadly contests and shattering heartbreak―but at an unspeakable cost. Now, she must travel to a new land to confront her darkest truth . . . a truth about her heritage that could change her life―and her future―forever. Meanwhile, brutal and monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, intent on enslaving her world. Will Celaena find the strength to not only fight her inner demons, but to take on the evil that is about to be unleashed?

The bestselling series that has captured readers all over the world reaches new heights in this sequel to the New York Timesbest-selling Crown of Midnight. Packed with heart-pounding action, fierce new characters, and swoon-worthy romance, this third book will enthrall readers from start to finish.

The Good:

This book is a treasure. What I love so much about it is that Sarah J Maas explores serious themes in a really defined way. At the beginning of this book Celaena is depressed and ready to do nothing and just give up. The character development she goes through is incredible and worth reading.

The way the story progresses is just so fantastic. You learn more of the world with the addition of Manon’s storyline (& Abraxos!). We meet Aedion and the demi-fae and see more of Terrasen’s court, or what’s left of it. We also meet Rowan, a fine Fae who knocks some sense into Celaena, literally. She finally gets a friend and every moment they are on the page they steal the show.

The plot is fantastic and I love that we get to see Dorian and Chaol in a big part while Celaena is off in Wendlyn. Their story is so relevant too and I just love how the individual storylines all interweave with the big one, facing off against the King of Adarlan.

This is such a great addition to the series and I am not sure whether I like Queen of Shadows or Heir of Fire more. Either way, if you have loved the Throne of Glass series so far, read this one!

The Bad:

I don’t have any issues with this book. At all. I loved it.

The Interesting:

What I love (and find interesting) is that I can open the book to any part and I enjoy it. I don’t have any parts I hate. My favourite interesting part is Aedion. What a character. The love he has for his people is amazing and I can’t wait until Empire of Storms so we can see him again.

Recommended For:

YA Fantasy lovers. People who love action. Anyone really! EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS SERIES.

“Because I am lost,” she whispered onto the earth. “And I do not know the way.”

“It would not take a monster to destroy a monster – but light, light to drive out darkness.”

“Witches didn’t need blood to survive, but humans didn’t need wine, either.”

“She was the heir of ash and fire, and she would bow to no one.”

“All she knew was that whatever and whoever climbed out of that abyss of despair and grief would not be the same person who had plummeted in.”
