Release date: 1st September 2015

Series: the fourth book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas

Issue: paperback copy, brought

My Thoughts:

This book was Amazing. Every book in the Throne of Glass series has gotten a million times better than the one before it. This series is spectacular.

In the last book Aedion was captured. And guess what. Now it’s time to free him. Like always Celaena has a plan, also like always i had no clue what the plan was until it was all unfolding infront of me. Seeing i am trying very hard not to put in spoliers, i shall not tell you how the plan worked out or if it worked.

Do you remember what happened in Crown of Midnight. That little scene where Celaena wanted to kill Chaol. Well it doesn’t exactly change, she doesn’t kill him, but she sure as hell does not like him.

Also Chaol is being a little ***** and doesn’t like Celaena. But i guess that is okay considering she did try to kill him. But then against it was his own doing and i hate him so i really wouldn’t mind if she killed him

I feel so bad about going from loving Chaol in the first one and a half books to now hoping he dies in a burning pit of hell. I jumped ships and but before i did i left Chaol tied up below deck and set it on fire. (I seriously don’t like Chaol at the moment)

Chaol annoys me mostly because he won’t jump on the magic train. Like. Come. On. Chaol. Seriously. your world is full of magic get with it.

In this book some characters from the Prequel Assassin’s Blade return. And one of them who returned i have a hatred far deeper than one on of Chaol. Chaol i will get used to, i get it he has lived his whole life fine only to just one day have it pulled out from under him. But this character who returns deserved to be ripped apart by a goat (i figured a goat was fitting)

Remember that collar the King put on Dorian? Well guess what. Dorian now is a baby Valg Prince. and by baby i mean he will always be my baby. But i also mean he is a valg prince and run. I feel so bad for Dorian, first his girlfriend gets killed in front of him. Then his body is just taken over by a Valg. And he didn’t get a circus for his birthday like his brother, no he gets an execution! like really Fatherly over here.

If you haven’t read the book yet let me give you a little hint. When people change there hair colour *cough red cough* pay attention to the description because prequel stuff. Plus it is also in the next book, so just please pay attention. It was the one thing i actually guessed ahead of time and i was right.

I swear this happened in the book:

Chaol: i bet i can be more stupid then you

Celaena: i highly doubt it

Chaol: oh yeah

*appears in front of witches with a death wish*

Celaena: oh please, you call that being stupid

*appears in front of witches and threatens them then uses magic to block them, then runs and has a fight*

Chaol: Yeah i guess that’s true. But get this, I only went to the witches to get Dorian, wait for it, i’m not going to get him.

rowan and everyone else in the background: *slams hand into forehead*

Manon is in this book. But it’s not like in hof where we all were wishing for her chapters to end. her chapters in this book are so feking amazing.

So that’s my little over view of the book.

But the writing and the perfection of this book is 110%. Each sentence was better than the last and i just have no words for the perfection. This book is fabulous

Thanks for reading reader fans, hope you enjoyed.

Goodread description:

Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past…

She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight.

She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die for her. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return.

The fourth volume in the New York Times bestselling series continues Celaena’s epic journey and builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.
