“She was the heir of ash and fire, and she would bow to no one.”
― Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire
*WARNING!! THIS IS BOOK 3 IN A SERIES!! DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU HAVE READ THE FIRST TWO BOOKS!!* (however if you have read the first two then please continue because this is a spoiler-free review, just like all my reviews!)
Synopsis: She was the heir of ash and fire, and she would bow to no one.
Celaena Sardothien 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. To defeat them, Celaena must find the strength to not only fight her inner demons but to battle the evil that is about to be unleashed.
My Review: 4.5/5 stars
Now please don’t let the .5 fool you, this book was absolutely fantastic! The only reason I gave it 4.5 instead of 5 is because the beginning was quite slow and hard to get into.
However, once you get into the book it’s amazing! You follow Celaena on her journey to accepting her power and herself. (and of course its a totally badass journey!) If you thought Celaena was powerful and unstoppable before, wait till you find out what she can do now!! And along the way we meet quite a few new characters, such as Rowan, who helps her come to terms with her past and her power.
There is also still Chaol and Dorian at the castle trying to do what they can about Dorian’s magic. We get to find out a lot more about Chaol while he tries to sort out his feelings towards Celaena and everything that happened in Crown of Midnight.
One thing I REALLY liked about this book was all the character development. THERE WAS SO MUCH IT WAS FANTASTIC!! We find out so much about all the characters and their lives, past and current. I have never felt so close to all the characters until now. Especially Celaena, who tells us everything about her past and finally puts down the shield around her feelings.
Lastly, the king is starting an army of witches, so we follow the best witch in the Blackbeak clan (and every clan, tbh), Manon. I did enjoy these chapters but I could’ve done without them. I guess they were very helpful for the fact that now we know what our warriors are up against.
Overall this book was just fantastic just like the rest of the books in the Throne of Glass series!
Thank you for reading my review!! Until next time, happy reading! 🙂
Find the book! 🙂
