“The World will be saved and remade by the dreamers”
And welcome back to the Book Kingdom. Today i have my review for Empire of Storms. I have finally caught up and now all my Throne of Glass reviews are out and ready for you to read. Now i just need to catch up on many other books (i’m getting to it).
For those of you who do not know Empire of Storms is the fifth book in the Throne of Glass series. Also you live under a rock, go and read the book please so we can talk about them together
This book review will have spoilers for the first four books and the prequel, so if you haven’t read them go now and read.
before i begin i would like to point out that on the back cover of the US book the dress is purple on the AU one the dress is blue. I had been expecting to see purple when i brought mine… but the blue one is so beautiful!!!
My Rating: 5/5
Release date: 6th September 2016
Series: This is the fifth book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Mass
Issue: Paperback copy, brought
now i will try so very hard not to put spoilers in. but i am pretty sure there are parts where my emotions will hint at certain things. so maybe if you haven’t read EoS yet you shouldn’t. idk. up to you.
OMG! this book
i can’t even deal with this book.
The ending. if you haven’t read it i won’t spoil it. but like that ending.
the book got better as it went on. The first few chapters were a bit slow and i wanted to get it moving on to more interesting things. Which it did get to very soon. Back to *a place i won’t spoil* with the gang. Well not Chaol.
Now chaol is not in this book so prepare yourself if you haven’t already read it. I didn’t mind Chaol not being in this book. I know everyone misses him but if he was in it there would be less parts on Celaena. Chaol will be getting a novella so don’t stress. Sarah has said it will be based on his healing adventures, my hope is that Towers from the prequel will be the one to do it. (wouldn’t that just be so amazing)
Celaena and Rowan’s ship is sailing very well at the moment, and chapter 38. if you do not wish to read anything inappropriate skip this chapter. If you don’t mind go ahead and read it. This book does have a few inappropriate scenes like chapter 38. But that is the main one and last a whole chapter. The rest are only a paragraph on i think three different occasions.
Lyssandra in this book, HOLY COW. she is so amazing!!! also they talk more about Dorian’s power in this book and say it is very powerful, maybe even more so than Celaena’s (which i don’t like because Celaena must have the biggest power).
This entire series is just me hating everyone who is better than celaena to be honest. And hating everyone who makes Celaena upset. So yeah, Dorian better keep his powers to himself and not be better than Celaena. (Yes i do realise i’m slightly evil)
Speaking of Dorians powers. Him and Manon. Jesus Christ. Dorian is… i have no words for what i read about those two. I just i just don’t know. That scene (if you have read it i think you know what scene i mean) but hummmmm i just i just don’t know what i think. I can’t… I can’t even imagine my baby dorian… no, it is not something i like to think about.
I like them together don’t get me wrong, but that scene. Dorian. My baby boy i did not expect that of you and i think i’m slightly grossed out. But i still wouldn’t really know where my emotions are at with that scene.
As well Celaena and the gang trying to build Celaena an army, the Fae’s of the past (and by that i mean Elena and the rest of them) have set Celaena the task of finding the lock. What is this lock you might ask. you will have to read to find out. Especially seeing i can explain it without confusing myself.
This book brings back old characters and towns and well as the memories of characters who have died and brought many tears. Read the prequel if you haven’t already, because everyone comes back basically.
I do believe i cried four times in this book. Twice in the end. And the other two times where spread out throughout the book. The ending was one crying moment. The other one at the end was just someone saying how much a character missed another character and love them, and it was just such a nice scene that made me cry.
See ya next time reader fans. What did you think of Empire of Storms? which book is your favourite so far? any theories on the next book?
until next time,
The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those who don’t.
As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.
Aelin’s journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?
