Happy Monday! To start off your week I am going to share with you the third book in the Throne of Glass series. It was a fantastic addition to this series. I really can’t say enough about this series and Sarah Maas. Both a fantastic story told by a phenomenal storyteller. I will be waiting with bated breath for the next book in the series. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb. Hope this week starts off well for you. My week will be a short one thank goodness.
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.
Celaena has survived so much heartbreak. Her world has been tipped and turned inside out many times in her short life. So, this errand for the king shouldn’t be much different. She must seek out her aunt, Queen Maeve of the Fae. It doesn’t take long for the Fae to seek her out and bring her to Maeve. Upon meeting her they strike a bargain. Celaena must find her magic and then she will get the answers that she seeks from Maeve. While Celaena is training with a Fae prince, Choal and her cousin, Aedion, strike many deals for information. With the information they glean they are in peril constantly. While Choal and Aedion are working with rebels, Dorian is learning to control his still new powers. It seems that all in this world are facing dangers untold and as the King uses more of his power it is only encouraging those in danger to risk more. Will Celaena finally rise up to claim what is hers? Will Choal finally choose a side? Will Dorian learn control and use the power that is so volatile? All will be answered even if those answers cause more pain.
I have total girl crush on Celaena. She has grown to be one of my favorite heroines. She is fearless, powerful and passionate in all she does. I think this book illustrates that more than anything. She must face her past horrors and through that she becomes who she must be. It isn’t just Celaena who really develops in this book. Choal and Dorian really come into their own. I’ve always felt Choal was torn on what is right and what is loyal. He finally chooses and when he does it is in a dramatic way. A way that you don’t really expect from Choal. We also get to know Aedion, Celaena’s cousin. He is everything you would think Celaena’s cousin would be. Arrogant, fearless and loyal even though many don’t know that he is. Overall, this book really propelled the story. It was hard for me to put it down. I tried really hard to read this slow knowing that the next book isn’t out til September but I couldn’t help it. These books draw me and never let me go. I am such a Sarah Maas fan now that I am recommending this series to all who ask. I hope if you haven’t picked up the first one yet that you are definitely running out and picking it up to start ASAP.
