Y’all are probably sick of my Throne of Glass reviews by now because they are obviously over-hyped and way biased, but oh well. It’s hard reviewing a book you absolutely loved, because then it just sounds like you’re vomiting rainbows and it’s hard to take opinions like that seriously. I know it. But that doesn’t erase the fact that I am completely in love with these books. Especially this 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.
Likes: Okay. Where to begin. The main thing I love about the series is the characters. All of the characters are beautifully detailed and even if they aren’t likable, they’re interesting. That just continues with Heir of Fire and the introduction of some new characters. It also shows in the development of Celaena’s character, her backstory, the emotional turmoil she faces throughout the novel. Speaking of emotions, this book was incredibly emotional and the author did an amazing job of conveying those emotions and really making the reader feel them. Finally, the world was developed even more. It really feels like this world has history and culture of its own.
Dislikes: Queen of Shadows isn’t out yet! 😉
Tune in next week to read my review of The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas!
