My Throne of Glass reread is officially over!!! I loved every single moment of this reread and will most likely be completing it again next year before the final book makes it was into my hands.
This series as a whole constantly has me on my toes and racing (and I mean racing) to find out what happens next. Sarah J Maas actually blows my mind away with her writing. If you wouldn’t mind, could you please tell me how it is possible for someone to be this talented at writing???
Empire of Storms especially, but the rest of the series as well, shows just how much effort Sarah J Maas put into this series. There are so many simple and yet so complex details that are put throughout the story that are overlooked and then three books later you are left going “OMG THAT IS WHAT THAT THING MEANT HOW COULD I BE SO STUPID? HOW DID I NOT SEE THAT???”
I do remember reading this book for the first time and hearing a lot of people say that they did not feel connected to Celaena as much as they had been in previous books. I however, feel that this was because there were so many plot lines twisting into each other. This is the book were everything clicks into place. Although, to be far, there is still a lot more to happen. I do understand why people felt disconnected. It’s because Celaena throughout this book is keeping secrets, massive secrets, and as readers we are meant to feel excluded from these until Celaena pops up out of no where and leaves you saying “OMG THAT IS WHAT THAT THING MEANT HOW COULD I BE SO STUPID? HOW DID I NOT SEE THAT???”
There are so many ships in this book it’s impossible for you not to like one of them. Seriously though, there are so many opportunities for you to jump onboard one of the ships and say goodbye to your social life forever. (Or you could actually go on one of the ships, like boat ships, cause there are plenty of those in this book as well.) From my original read I was mainly team Rowan and Celaena as well as Aedion and Lysandra. But now I have also joined Elide and Lorcan plus Elide and Manon. No Dorian just yet because it kind of felt forced to me, but Dorian and Chaol will always live on forever in my heart.
And that my friends if my 11:53pm review of Empire of Storms, have you read this book? What did you think?? If you ever want to have an in depth conversation about this book or any other feel free to message me on bookstagram
Until next time,
