*Whispers* Let’s do this
This will include spoilers from all the Throne of Glass books (I believe) the major ones come from Queen of Shadows and The Assassin’s Blade but I am assuming most of you know what happens in that book considering you have heard of what Tower of Dawn is about. If you have not, I suggest not reading any further in this post, or reading any description of TOD because you will spoil yourself for Queen of Shadows.
This post is just going to go through the books and point out any foreshadowing I have noticed that might have to do with Tower of Dawn and my feelings about Chaol.
The Assassin’s Blade
In The Assassin and the Healer we met Yrene Towers who after meeting Celaena Sardothien has enough money to finally chase her dream and train in becoming a healer.
My theory, along with pretty much everyone else, is that Chaol will meet Yrene Towers and hopefully she will help him out a little. However, I do not want Chaol “healed”. And this isn’t because I dislike him, it’s because I have this vision of Chaol sitting in a wheelchair with a bow and arrow kicking ass. He can still be the captain of the guard but now he is doing it from a chair, so be it. I think he will learn to be amazing at shooting an arrow.
Celaena gives a whole heap of – OMG i just had another theory I will come back to this in a second
During the Assassin and the Healer, Celaena teaches Yrene some self-defense moves
I really really really want to see Yrene teaching little kids who come to train as healers how to defend themselves. I want to see Chaol roaming around the healer school and stumble across Yrene training little kids, and in the moments he watches her fight him, he realises where he has seen those moves before, who has done those moves before, Celaena. It doesn’t make sense to him at first as to why a healer would know Celaena, but hasn’t she mentioned she wanted to be a healer before, maybe he will catch on to this.
back to the other thought
Celaena gave a whole heap of gold to Yrene to become a healer and a necklace.
I want to see Yrene wearing that necklace. Even better, I want Chaol to ask about it and for Yrene to explain how she got it. Then Chaol will connect the dots and bam! He admits that he likes Celaena again, not loves (because Rowan is better) but likes and understands her.
In the Assassin and the Desert Ansel explains to Celaena that she once met an irontooth witch and that the witch told her to go train as an assassin
Anyone want to bet this witch was astrien cause same! Although this won’t come into play during Tower of Dawn because Ansel will not be here
Ansel also explained that Lord Loch killed her father and sister
I also want to bet that Lord Loch has something to do with Elide Lochan, in particular her uncle who didn’t allow for her leg to be healed properly. OH MY GOD can chaol please bring Yrene with her and an army to help save Celaena. Yrene can then fix Elides leg.
Edit: I just found out from my Empire of Storms read that Ansel killed Lord Loch who is not related to Uncle Lochan. Why must characters have similar names?????
Throne of Glass
I didn’t find much detail
Crown of Midnight
I’m thinking maybe Chaol could go an take back his title from is little brother (???)
Heir of Fire
I (re)discovered in this book that there is also a healer academy over in Wendlyn. I’m thinking maybe the healer place Chaol is going to might talk about this school and the two can team up and save Celaena and the rest of the world.
Also in this book Dorian told Chaol a lot (and I mean a lot) that he needs to move forward and adapt so I’m hoping something happens as Chaol goes through this book, that he snaps into place and realizes things are changing. (Also how cool would it be if he had magic???)
Queen of Shadows
Okay so I paid some attention this time around and realised Elide does in fact have magic abilities. I am thinking they will be water as Elide is related to Aelin through their mothers (and Aelin’s mum had water, I remember that being mentioned somewhere).
In the south, aka where Chaol is headed, Nesyrn’s family lives. So I am hoping that will help them build a army.
What are your theories on Tower Of Dawn? I would love to hear them.
