Series: Throne of Glass #3
Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy.
While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?
A war is brewing and its greatness is sure to shadow any that has happened in the past. Sarah J. Maas knows how to take you through an adventure that will intensify all of your senses and make you feel everything each and every one of her characters are feeling. If you invest yourself in reading these books in this series you will know what I’m talking about. Intense is the main word that will always come to mind when thinking of the Throne of Glass series and this book didn’t even come close to disappointing, it was amazing.
We are back with Celaena who is trying to find her way to the Fae, and she definitely does but not without some much needed training. I know more training but this is different, everything is different now. You can feel the thickness in the air, something is coming, something strong, something very, very wrong. This is the training that Celaena is preparing for with her definitely much adored by me new Fae friend Rowan.
There are a lot of dark things that happen in this book, a lot of fears that everyone needs to face but mainly Celaena. I thoroughly enjoyed that the book went from different perspectives, from the bad side of the witches (who really are trying to do what they need to do so they can take over themselves), and then the prince and his captain who are struggling as friends due to Celaena‘s departure, but there is more brewing between them as well. But my favorite will have to be any scene that has to do with Celaena‘s journey. I’m definitely hooked on seeing her struggle and her strength throughout the whole series. It just seems to grow within every book.
I think this was her breaking point though, because she’s ready for a good fight and I’m ready to read all about it. Watch out nasty King of Adarlan, they are coming for you and even though you think you are ready, you have no idea. I’m sure the same could be said for the side of good, but still I choose good, will always choose good.
