Enemy Lover.Queen Heir of Fire is undoubtedly one of the best books I ve ever read It certainly will be my favorite book of the year It is gloriously long and kept me occupied for an entire day night hours included making me crave to find out , but also stop reading so that the book won t end just yet.You think you know Celaena from reading the first two books, right Oh, but you re so so wrong In this book we see her than broken, relentlessly blaming herself for the fates and deaths of her beloved ones She takes down her every shield, leaving nothing behind to shed her emptiness threatening to shatter her from the inside out I believe this was her turning point, the true crossroad in her life, making her see, accept and embrace all that pain, regret and self loathing she carefully kept hidden inside her soul, etched into her dire and gruesome memories You collect scars because you want proof that you are paying for whatever sins you ve committed And I know this because I ve been doing the same damn thing for two hundred years Tell me, do you think you will go to some blessed Afterworld, or do you expect a burning hell You re hoping for hell because how could you face them in the Afterworld And gods, what memories and past We are able to witness how she became Celaena Sardothien, how her life changed forever on that fateful night ten years ago But by facing all that sorrow and darkness, she s making a stand She s slowly becoming a queen, one powerful and deadlier that you could ever imagine.Her character development is phenomenal, because through her new experiences she is stronger, wiser and determined Her fierceness was awe inspiring and I loved that she s still the same stubborn, snarky and brave young woman, maybe with her ego a little bruised She s not proud of who she s become, abandoning her kingdom and not fighting for rebuilding it for the past ten years, but she s ready to throw herself into battle to win back her land To say that she s badass would be an understatement Celaena makes the transition from assassin to queen with the help of Rowan, a Fae Prince and my favorite new addition to the series Not that he is so eager to help, but in order to find answers about the Wyrdkeys and how to destroy them, she has to be worthy of entering Doranelle, the land where Queen Maeve awaits her to answer her questions May I shout something I LOVE ROWAN WHITETHORN In the beginning, he s infuriatingly patient and stubborn, brooding and secretive But when he opens up And when he actually smiles Laughs Scrap me off the floor cause I am hyperventilating Gods, he was brilliant Cunning and wicked and brilliant.Even when he beat the hell out of her Every Damn Day He s an alpha male in all his glory, with the kickass moves that would bring Celaena s to shame He s scary and intense, protective and defying, caring, but lethal when it comes to his enemies Rowan is the no nonsense type and I was glad there is finally someone who doesn t put up with Celaena s bullshit She throws a verbal punch He throws one that will leave her with a black eye for the entire week But they develop a friendship and something so important on the intimate level not talking about romance that it will warm your heart to realize that our girl finally has someone to fully rely on No secrets, no barriers, no judging left between them They would die for each other, kill for each other, fight for each other And when they work together, as a pair, as a team, they re astounding and terrifying I claim you, Rowan Whitethorn I don t care what you say and how much you protest I claim you as my friend Dorian Havilliard is the same swoon worthy, sentimental, humble yet a bit arrogant as well young prince He will win your heart regardless of the team you re in, because in the end he stands up to his father in a glorious way that had me cheering for him He is way mature, weary of everyone and everything and you can see him becoming a true worthy king right before your eyes A lot of heartbreak and despair was in store for him and I guarantee it will all leave you in a pile of overwhelming feels In addition to his wonderful character development, Dorian is moving on from Celaena And I m not sure I like who he s moving on with Heck, I don t like that he s actually moving on Makes the whole Dorian Celaena shipping a bit harder But truth be told now, as much as I was against his new lady Sorscha, I was glad he got a little happiness and support to fight his growing loneliness, worries and magic And you want to know why Because freaking Chaol Westfall pretty much abandoned his friend when he needed him the most.Yeah, you read that right Dedicated, loyal, selfless Chaol was so unable to make up his damn mind that I was uncounsciously pulling my hair I was very much irritated with him until the very end when he came to his senses In the aftermath of Crown of Midnight, his friendship with Dorian is left in shambles and things don t get prettier in this book They grow estranged, but I ll give it to the captain that he has only the prince s safety and freedom in interest But keeping secrets, judging, not being able to accept Celaena s and Dorian s powers all these things make me wonder if he has any shot left at our heroine s heart, because whereas Celaena would always pick him, Aelin would not As for Celaena, he said again, you do not have the right to wish she were not what she is The only thing you have a right to do is decide whether you are her enemy or her friend We meet awesome warrior Aedion Ashryver, Celaena s cousin and childhood best friend He s all deadly smiles, muscles and wild behavior Aedion is daring, clever and doesn t give a rat s ass about anyone but himself Or so they say But he s dead set on taking down the King of Adarlan from the inside When he finds out Aelin is alive, he makes it clear that he would move mountains in order to see his true queen back in Terrasen He s loyal, determined, skilled and I hope he reunites with Celaena sooner rather than later, because he is in a pretty bad place at the end of the book A cry went up from the witches, save for the Thirteen who stayed cool and quiet They did not need to cheer, for they were immortal and infinite and gloriously, wonderfully deadly Another addition to the newbie characters is Manon Blackbeak, heir of the Blackbeak coven of the Ironteeth witches and leader of the Thirteen The witches play a big role in the King s newest and darkest plans by being the riders of the wyverns he has created and Manon wants nothing than to lead them into battle as Wing Leader She wants to prove herself and although she is a bloodthirsty, wicked creature, I completely loved her She s by no means a villain, just a different kind of heroine, firm and unyielding, with great ambition Her encounters and silent dialogues with Abraxos cracked me up, because in that moments you could glimpse besides the wyvern s total awesomeness how Manon starts believing there s a chance she has a heart and soul and that her grandmother s rules might not be the best to follow Witches didn t need blood to survive, but humans didn t need wine, either The King of Adarlan is still the biggest bastard I ve had the dis pleasure of reading I loathe the guy with every fiber of my being He is wicked to the core, manipulative and selfish to no end No, not just selfish, but greedy Greedy for everything and anything, exactly like a monster And what he did at the end, to my poor baby Dorian, made me wish that once Celaena comes back because she will come back she won t kill him Oh no, I want her to keep him locked in a basement, to visit him everyday and torture him until he breaks, only to do it all over again the next day, because killing him would be too much of a mercy for the deeds he has done The other secondary characters were very well developed the Ironteeth witches, Ren Allsbrook, Emrys, Luca and Maeve they were a testimony to SJM s awesome writing skills And I might add that for me the writing style was slightly different Improved Better More realistic, if you wish There was a certain ease with which she used words that enchanted you completely Plus, the swearing I don t mind it one bit, but am I the only one that noticed it appeared often than in the first two books Matured characters, matured world, matured language, I guess The atmosphere is darker and the pace is thrilling, allowing you to breath for a bit before another near death encounter or epic battle starts The world building was another winner, as we were able to see Wendlyn, Doranelle, the Ferien Gap and Adarlan again We learn about the past, we meet Queen Maeve who s quite a manipulative bitch , we run from terrifying creatures and we accompany Celaena as she masters her powers There isn t so much romance in the air, besides Dorian s plotline, because it s the last thing in our character s mind And honestly, I don t really know who Celaena is going to end up with Chaol still has issues with her and Dorian is currently viewing her as his friend, but things could still drastically change since there are 3 books It seems that even Aedion, her cousin, might have a shot since he wouldn t deny anything his queen would ask of him And then there s Rowan who I m not sure will actually have a romantic involvement with Aelin, but it s worth hoping for they would be unstoppable He would not apologize for today, or yesterday, or for any of it And she would not ask him to, not now that she understood that in the weeks she had been looking at him it had been like gazing at a reflection No wonder she had loathed him In terms of plot, you could say it s action driven, but I beg to differ the character development plays a part as big as the twists and turns and fights It sure keeps you at the edge of your seat, courtesy of Sarah J Mass amazing writing, and makes you shudder at some new evil creatures or at the violence, but I basically view Heir of Fire as Celaena s healing journey, one necessary to fully accept her legacy So you d save another land, but not yours Why can t your friend save her own kingdom Because she is dead She screamed the last word so loudly it burned in her throat Because she is dead, and I am left with my worthless life The Throne of Glass series slowly becomes a younger version of Game of Thrones with less deaths, but keep in mind that there are worse fates than death and I couldn t be happier With the same complexity, a gut wrenching intensity and an amazing world, Heir of Fire brings out the big guns twists, emotional punches, tearjerkers and amazing characters, not to mention the wonderfully built world It s definitely the best one from the series yet and a total game changer, so don t be surprised if it will keep you enthralled from start to finish Fantasy to its finest, a story with heroes and monsters, Fae and humans, life and death Read it the second it hits shelves, cause you won t be disappointed unless you re the type that can t stomach the idea of enduring another year for the next book and to whom I recommend waiting a bit longer, because there is one hell of a cliff hanger If you re looking for anything ToG related then check out this Throne of Glass fansite.ENJOY 3 I m not sure what to say about Heir of Fire Perhaps I don t need to say anything beyond it took me months to read it And I am the kind of crazy passionate reader that finishes good books in a day or two It s been a while since a book took me longer than a week to read.So basically I liked but had issues with Throne of Glass.I absolutely LOVED Crown of Midnight.But this book this book was so bloody sloooooowwwwwww.I wanted to DNF it so bad I kept moving it between my currently reading and on hold shelves I kept wondering if I could possibly just skip the last two thirds of this book and somehow pick the story up in next installment I was informed that I could not I have invested so much time and love in this series and these characters that I simply had to make myself finish but holy shit, it was such a struggle.The majority of this book So Maas tries to experiment with a bit of something different here and it neither a works, nor b fills me with much confidence for the state of the rest of the series I m seeing the way this whole thing is goingBook one was fantasy lite with a simplistic plot, filled with characters lacking in any real development to distinguish them from others in the genre, but it was fast paced, sugary entertainment Book two cranked it up several notches here the characters became fleshed out and nuanced, the plot was equally engaging but complex and clever, and there was way badassery No complaints at all And then we arrive at book three Heir of Fire feels like an attempt to be sophisticated It is well written, contains several stories told through constantly changing POVs, and it is than a hundred pages longer And it is far far slower Maas sacrifices everything deliciously fast paced and compelling about her series in the first half so we can be introduced to a whole new cast of characters we don t care about, be taken through different all boring perspectives, and emerge feeling like we ve read an extremely long filler book.Dorian s new romance only served to remind me why I found him unbearably boring in the first book Celaena now in Wendlyn meets a whole set of new people who failed to make any kind of impression on me Even Chaol whom I absolutely loved in both other books lost his charm somewhere amid his own boring plot line And just when I thought I might be starting to get invested in one of the stories, the chapter would end and I would leave the story of interest for at least fifty pages, guaranteeing that I would no longer care when we finally returned.The most annoying thing about this book is how it wasn t even consistently slow We d get tiny little tidbits of awesome that would last a mere two or three pages and I would sit up a bit straighter and think This is it Finally we re getting to the good stuff until I realised it was just a false alarm and the story was still boring If I m to give credit where it s due, I will say that I like the way Maas portrays friendships and makes them as important if not important than the romantic relationships It s an area of YA so often neglected and I find it especially refreshing to see a platonic relationship between young male and female characters crafted so well.I will be reading the next book just because I have to give it a shot, but my expectations have been significantly lowered.Blog Leafmarks Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr This is going to be a book that I will constantly be thinking about until I m able to get my hands on the next book It was incredible and I m so happy with the way this story is evolving NOW GIVE ME QUEEN OF SHADOWS full video review coming soooooon Initial Reaction Holy crap I can t breathe Oh my god That was epic WHERE IS BOOK 4 Read the full review at A Perfection Called Books This review contains spoilers from previous Throne of Glass books As I m sure you all know by now, I am obsessed with the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas I was ecstatic when Bloomsbury sent me an ARC Picking up not long after the heart wrenching end of Crown of Midnight, Sarah J Maas dazzles and entrances readers once with a phenomenal third book filled with magic, character growth, sacrifice, rebellion and I wish you to become who you were born to be To become queen Heir of Fire has most definitely made my list of best books of 2014 This book is quite different from the others in the series I liked it a bit less than the other two, but it was so different it s hard to compare them The other books center around romance and action while this book deals with the deeper stuff betrayal, confidence, mourning, rebellion, heritage, loyalty This book is huge It was a bit cumbersome to hold, but the content was great The beginning was a bit slow but eventually picked up Everything written was absolutely necessary to carry the story though, so I didn t mind The attention to detail was amazing Everything was there for a reason, there were connections to the other books all over the place It brought back all the feels from The Assassin s Blade Crown of Midnight Sarah J Maas is so meticulous about her writing and is truly in a league of her own The tone of the book was much darker too Maas has set this series on a much darker and awesome road than most YA series even fantasy novels tend to go, and I applaud her for it The high fantasy aspect of this book was amped up There was magic and wyverns and fae I loved it all This series reminds me of a YA version of Game of Thrones a bit Less sex and deaths though The world building was fantastic Everything was so clearly described I could see it all playing out in my mind The character development in this series is fantastic Each of our characters has his her own obstacles that must be overcome they all have their own journeys Because I am lost, she whispered onto the earth And I do not know the way We see a totally different side of Celaena in Heir of Fire We re used to the cocky, confident, invincible assassin In this book we see the vulnerable, defeated, self loathing side of her In the end though she comes out fierce and determined than before, a magic wielding queen ready to take back what s rightfully hers As for Celaena, he said again, you do not have the right to wish she were not what she is The only thing you have a right to do is decide whether you are her enemy or her friend Chaol struggles to decide where his loyalties lie and how he feels about Celaena and the discoveries he made in Crown of Midnight I ll admit, Chaol annoyed me so much in this book He redeems himself in the end though Dorian struggles to conceal his magic and stand up to his father Both characters come so far in this book They sacrifice so much and in the end they make the tough decisions where this is no turning back There are quite a few new characters introduced in this book Rowan, the fae prince and warrior who teaches Celaena how to control her magic Aedion, the fierce general and Celaena s cousin Manon, ferocious heir to the Blackbeak witch coven All of the characters in this book are so complex and well developed The secondary characters are just as descriptive as well I ALMOST ship Rowan and Celaena, but I think they re of a team He s so fiercely devoted and smart and honest and awesome Aedion is so loyal and amazing Manon is okay, she s a bit too blood thirsty With new characters come points of view Overall I liked the various perspectives because the plot needed all sides of the story to make sense Sometimes though I felt that some scenes were quite unnecessary and long and dragging We learn so many things about Erilea and what happened to Celaena ten years ago It s all quite mind blowing and a bit overwhelming We also learn about the King s nefarious actions We see connections all over the place from the various books Maas has been spreading the crumbs throughout the series until BAM you read Heir of Fire, and it all comes together The wyrdstones The tower The rings The disappearances The crumbled note The rebels Baba Yellowlegs Everything happens for a reason and contributes to the story in some way The people you love are just weapons that will be used against you Romance was not a big part of this novel There are some heartache moments for our dearest Chaolaena and a bit of romance, but there are much important things brewing in Erilea and Wendlyn This series is past the silly romance, it s moved on to the important stuff like defeating a diabolical king, bringing back magic, freeing the enslaved, and so on As I said before, this book starts off a bit slow Stick with it though, if you liked the other books you ll love this one as well The ending is horrific yet amazing at the same time The rebellion is forming, and we readers are kept wanting He would see that world reborn, even if it took his last breath Even if he had no name now, no position or title save Oath Breaker, Traitor, Liar Heir of Fire is yet another amazing installment of the Throne of Glass series WHERE IS BOOK 4 She was the heir of ash and fire, and she would

dared ask.Emrys met his gaze unflinchingly as he whispered, A better world First of all YES, the rumour is true This series really gets better and better with each and every single book Just thought I d let you know lol To be honest, after Crown of Midnight all I hoped for was that Heir of Fire would be able to keep the pace And tell you what It actually exceeded my, admittedly, already high expectations Yes, Sarah You did an amazing job with this one I was hooked right from the beginning and I didn t want to stop to read this damn book I loved this book, I loved it so freaking much It was so, so, so, so, SOOO, good And I was happy with it, I was SO happy with it UNTIL UNTIL the last 20 pages hit me ARGH T_TI thought I d be able to write about Heir of Fire without getting all too emotional but as it seems all my plans and good intentions just went out of the window I can t write about this book without getting emotional I just can t It was too much That ending was too much WHY WHY THE FREAKIDY FREAKING HELL, SARAH How could you do this to me HOW I LOVE THIS BOOK BUT I HATE THIS ENDING SO MUCH I hate it,I love it, I hate that I love it, I love that I hate it ADSFJKLMN ADKFASLDFJASDKFASDK throws book against the wall a second time for good measure Okay, I think I m ready to continue now takes deep breath and collects herself All right Let s do this Just like with Crown of Midnight I won t waste your time by writing about the plot It s way too complex to explain it without any spoilers and because of that, I guess it might be best if I just go for another round of Keyword Boggle It was so much fun the last time around, wasn t it PSo here I go Celaena, Dorian, Chaol, Rowan, Aelin, Manon, Abraxos, Sorscha, The King, magic, faeries, witches, darkness, fire, ice, wind, a kitchen, a healer, an apartment, blood, murder, and let s not forget about the black stones XDI guess by now you could write your own book lol We re still speaking about Sarah s book though, so I ll head directly into the characters section and won t keep you in suspense any longer The characters Do I still have to say it Yes Okay Beware of my characters section because it s known as the spoilery spoiler section of my reviews Don t read on, close your eyes, eat an ice, please think twice, I m not nice, my reviews have spice And spoilers, lots of spoilers, but you already know that or you wouldn t have continued to read that bad rhyme P Celaena So you d save another land, but not yours Why can t your friend save her own kingdom Because she is dead She screamed the last word so loudly it burned in her throat Because she is dead, and I am left with my worthless life sighs deeply Oh, Celaena How much pain does this poor girl have to endure It hurt to read about her feelings after Nehemia s death, it hurt to read how much she ached and wished she could have been someone else That she could have saved her friend That Nehemia would live instead of her That Chaol would have trusted her That he would have told her Oh boy, Celaena s heart was a black void of desperation and pain that only seemed to get worse before it even got a chance to get better In the end it did get better though and I m so happy about that She finally found her inner strength and she accepted her heritage Which is awesome, because I really can t wait for her to kick some ass lol Heaven knows the King s behind is already a formidable target and please Sarah if there is any justice in your world you ll let him burn for what he did You ll let him suffer for all the pain he caused I can t wait to see Celaena s power unleashed Guess the palace is going to be hot stuff soon P He had chosen the king Even though he d claimed he loved her, he still loyally served that monster Maybe she had been a fool for letting him in, for dreaming of a world where she could ignore the fact that he was captain to the man who had shattered her life again and again No, all she could see were the slaves she d left behind, the ashy mountains and those mass graves they dug every day, the faces of her people, who had worked beside her her people whom she had left behind Whom she had let herself forget, had let suffer who had prayed for salvation, holding out hope that someone, anyone would remember them.She had abandoned them and she had been too late She would not let that light go out She would fill the world with it, with her light her gift She would light up the darkness, so brightly that all who were lost or wounded or broken would find their way to it, a beacon for those who still dwelled in that abyss It would not take a monster to destroy a monster but light, light to drive out darkness.She was not afraid Chaol He was afraid of what they would do to his kingdom Because this was still his kingdom He was working for Dorian, not Aelin not Aedion And he didn t know where all of this put him YESH I know it was a long and hard way for Chaol but as it seems he s finally on the right track I loved that he began to question everything He was so insecure and hurt that he had no other choice than to face his outlook on things and in the end this eventually forced him to see behind the kings carefully kept fa ade Which is awesome, because I know deep down within him Chaol is a very good man He was just completely oblivious to the fact that the served a monster Still, I m glad he decided for Dorian and I swear if Celaena and Chaol don t do anything about this damn ending, I m going to riot CHAOL you gotta help your Prince and rightful king I will not turn my back on my kingdom or my prince, Chaol snapped I will not fight in your army and slaughter my people And I will not break my vow to my father His honor might very well be all he would have left after the end of this. Aedion was quiet long enough that Chaol got up to leave But then the general said, What would you have given just to see her again Chaol couldn t turn around as he said, It doesn t matter now Chaol kept his sword drawn I will not go to Anielle, he growled And I will not serve you a moment longer There is one true king in this room there always has been And he is not sitting on that throne Dorian Once Dorian might have already said something about it But having magic, getting drawn into whatever mess Celaena was in, seeing that other world in the secret tunnels all of that had changed everything The best he could do these days was maintain a low profile to keep his father or anyone else from looking too long in his direction WHY SARAH WHYYYYY breaks down and sobs Why do you have to use him as a human punching bag Dorian is so decent and compassionate he doesn t deserve to be broken First you hurt him by finding out about Chaol s and Celaena s secret, then you kill off his girlfriend and in the end you even let him be forced into the Kings slavery LIKE SERIOUSLY WTFH WTF I CAN T WITH THIS ENDING I JUST CAN T HE SUFFERED ENOUGH I don t even want to know what is going to happen now that he s wearing this freaking collar He saved Chaol s life GODDAMNIT GIVE MY BOY A BREAK Sarah, I swear it here and now if Dorian isn t saved by the end of book 4 I won t continue to read this series I just won t I know it s the author s right and decision to kill off characters or to make them suffer as they please, but I just can t take it any Dorian is my cutiepie and cinnamon roll and I think my heart hurts enough I survived 3 books of ACOTAR watching how my precious Lucien went through hell and I just can t take this any Lucien never got his happily ever after and it still hurts So no, sorry but no If Dorian isn t at least halfway alright after Queen of Shadows then I m quitting this series Period I made up my mind There was so much potential to give Dorian s character a chance to evolve and to be awesome and interesting So much raw magic that could have been used, but all that happened was that Sorscha died and Dorian sacrificed himself for Chaol I m pissed, I m majorly pissed And coming from me that means a lot So yeah, this wrong is better set right or I m quitting I m serious and I mean it This said TeamDorian forever and for always 333 He d been a fool once, swearing he would tear the world apart for Celaena A boy in love with a wildfire or believing he was in love with one Because you re not really scared of those things, are you No it s what they represent The change But let me tell you, Dorian breathed, his magic flickering and then subsiding in a flash of pain, things have already changed And changed because of you I have magic there is no undoing that, not getting rid of it And as for Celaena He clamped down on the power that surged as he imagined for the first time, he realized what it was to be her As for Celaena, he said again, you do not have the right to wish she were not what she is The only thing you have a right to do is decide whether you are her enemy or her friend We re all risking something There was so little of the friend he d grown up with The prince glanced at his pocket watch I need to go Dorian stalked to the stairs, and there was no fear in his face, no doubt, as he said, You gave me the truth today, so I ll share mine even if it meant us being friends again, I don t think I would want to go back to how it was before who I was before And this He jerked his chin towards the scattered crystals and the bowl of water I think this is a good change, too Don t fear it Aedion Ashryver Handsome was a light way of describing what Aedion was Overwhelming was like it Towering and heavily muscled, Aedion was every inch the warrior rumor claimed him to be I like Aedion I like him a lot He s such a tortured soul and he tried everything possible in order to protect his people He was an intriguing new character and I can t wait to see of him I really liked his interactions with Dorian because they were so much fun lol Those two have a lot of potential to become close friends, but I guess the ending of this book kind of nullified that possibility Still, I want Aedion s noble and brave soul to be rescued as well and I don t even want to know what the king is going to do with him T_T I hope Aelin returns soon because her boys definitely need her right now Poor Aedion, he waited for so long And if I m already at it He saved Chaol s ass too, so Chaol better get his groove on He needs to make plans to save him as well XD Cousin that had been his most beloved title Cousin, kin, protector Those were the secret names he harboured deep within, the names he whispered to himself when the northern wind was shrieking through the Staghorns Aelin would come back from Wendlyn, no matter what the captain believed Aelin would come back, and when she did With every breath, Aedion felt that lingering scent wrapping tighter around his heart and soul When she came back, he was never letting her go All you monsters can burn in hell Because my queen is coming and she will spike you to the walls of your godsdamned castle And I can t wait to help her gut you like the pig you are He spat at the king s feet, right on top of the fake ring that had stopped bouncing.Rowan She noticed then that his arms were bandaged, and bandages across his broad chest peeked up from beneath his shirt She d burned him again And yet he had held on to her had run all the way here and not let go once The fierce, broody and intense warrior I like him even though I have to admit that his abilities as a teacher kind of lack experience lol Still, he s a decent fae and despite the way he acted at the beginning of the book his heart actually seems to be in the right place I loved that he took care of Celaena once he realised why she s so broken and I suppose their fight at the beginning was kind of necessary They both needed to let off some steam XD I genuinely hope we ll see of him in the next book, because I feel like there is so much to tell How how did you come back from that kind of loss I didn t For a long while I couldn t I think I m still not back I might never be She nodded, lips pressed tight, and glanced toward the window But maybe, he said, quietly enough that she looked at him again He didn t smile, but his eyes were inquisitive Maybe we could find the way back together Manon Silent as death, Manon slid up behind him The fool didn t even know she was there until she brought her mouth close to his ear and whispered, Wrong kind of witch I M IN LOVE WITH MANON BLACKBEAK This woman is so savage and fierce I love it lol As it seems for once my prayers were answered I got of the iron teeth witches and I loved every single chapter XD Manon is so damn amazing I just couldn t get enough of her and followed her storyline closely Truth be told, I just want to lean back and watch how her and Abraxos change the world Haha I disliked Manon s grandmother a lot though and even though she became Wing Leader I m pretty sure there will be some major estrangement in the future Still, I loved Manon s connection with Asterin and her Thirteen and I really hope they ll always be at her side Maybe Petrah will join them one day Idk I truly hope she ll be fine some day because I really liked her too _ You re mine, Manon said to him.The wyvern blinked at her, Titus s blood still dripping from his cracked and broken teeth, and Manon had the feeling that he had come to the same decision Perhaps he had known long before tonight, and his fight with Titus hadn t been so much about survival as it had been a challenge to claim her As his rider As his mistress As his And Manon, because no one was watching, because she did not care, flung out her arms as well and savoured the freefall, the wind now a song in her ears, in her shriveled heart You touch him again, Manon said, and I ll drink the marrow from your bones The friendships ships Chaol Dorian He met Dorian s gaze There was nothing kind in it But Dorian said, I m trying, Chaol Trying, because Chaol s not consulting him on the plan to get Celaena out of Adarlan had been a breach of trust, and one that shamed him, though Dorian could never know that, either I know Oh, those two broke my heart I really wanted them to solve their problems and then this damn ending came along ARGH They need a chance to fix all this Sarah give them a chance, please They deserve it And OMG Chaol told Dorian that he loves him Way too late but he did it 33 I just want my two boys to be happy and friends again sobs They both suffered enough in those last two books, they really deserve some peace And to take away their chance to make amends So mean, Sarah So, so mean _ You think I d run to my father The words were barely than a strangled whisper as the temperature plummeted.Chaol stepped forward, putting himself between Aedion and Dorian, his palms exposed Placating I can t afford to guess to hope Even with you You cannot pick and choose what parts of her to love He pitied Chaol, he realized His heart hurt for his friend, for all that Chaol had surely been realizing these past few months Just as you cannot pick which parts of me you accept He looked at his friend, perhaps for the last time, and said what he had always known, from the moment they d met, when he d understood that the prince was his brother in soul I love you Dorian merely nodded, eyes still blazing, and lifted his hands again towards his father Brother Friend King.Sorscha Dorian She usually talked like this when she was nervous Which, Dorian had noticed with some satisfaction, was when he came near And not in a bad way if he d sensed that she was truly uncomfortable, he d have kept his distance This was flustered He liked flustered I suppose their relationship was doomed right from the beginning but I still would have liked it to work out They were so sweet together, but I can t shake the feeling that I missed some major parts of their plot I really wish Sarah would have given us of them because to me their entire storyline felt kinda rushed Still, I was glad Sorscha helped Dorian to hide his magic and her being a spy was such an unexpected plot twist _ It really killed me when the King ordered her death and I can t even describe how much Dorian s pain hurt me T_T I m still not over this probably I ll never be Yes, he breathed, and kissed her It was fast but her face was flushed, and her eyes wide as he pulled back His own eyes were wide, gods be damned, and he was still rubbing his thumb against her soft cheek Still contemplating going back for , because that hadn t been nearly enough Celaena Rowan Why don t you just bite me again Why don t I give you the lashing you deserve He looked so dead set on it that she blinked If you ever take a whip to me, I will skin you alive Oh, ho ho Those two So much passion, so much pain They were quite a sight to behold lol I loved how their initial animosity turned into a solid friendship and I was so glad Celaena finally told someone about her past This was so damn necessary and I m glad Rowan was there to listen to her troubles and fears 3 I m sure they ll become lovers in the future, but as it seems Sarah just wants to torture us a little bit P After all she s good at that, torture seems to be her middle name XD Bet the J is just a fib Haha It was a selfish wish, and a fool s hope She read the rest of it in his eyes But it came true Dangerous, for a prince of ice and wind to pray to the Fire Bringer, she managed to say.Rowan shrugged, a secret smile on his face as he wiped away the tear that escaped down her cheek For some reason, Mala likes me, and agreed that you and I make a formidable pair Okay, I think I ranted enough now lol So yeah, I hope I ll get my hands on Queen of Shadows soon and that my precious Gem will continue this journey with me I even wrote nice things about Chaol That s got to count P Brilliant Sarah J Maas is becoming my favourite author Her writing style is engaging, engrossing, intelligent, and easy to follow Her imagination and storytelling are amazing This story is a lot slower than the Crown of Midnight it concentrates on the character development.At the end of the last book we learned not only who Celaena Sardothien really is but also what she really is Her relationship with Chaol is in tatters Having suggested to the king to send her on a mission for her own protection, and cutting Prince Dorian out of the loop, Chaol is in no man s land Distancing himself from Dorian, for Dorian own protection, he starts to do his job notices some irregularities with a certain high ranking general This forces Chaol to make some decisions of his own, how long can a good honourable man serve a tyrant like the King of Aldarlan and his many atrocities.Dorian is alone then he has ever been, but he does manage to find solace Finding company is not really difficult for a handsome prince, but who can he trust This is triply difficult as he has to not only keep his own actives which his father will not approve of secret, his friends secrets, and most of all his magic.We are also introduced the Iron Teeth Witch Clans and especially Manon Blackbeak Meanwhile Celaena detours from her mission and pursues her own agenda Meeting forgotten and powerful relatives Before she is allowed to get the answers she wants she must claim her heritage her powers She must learn to control them and master them all the while putting he shattered life and her past I really like the way she has to train and relearn everything Just because you are in a stronger body does not mean you can control it especially in a fight situation.Great story, very character driven and impossible to put down I kept thinking I will just read one chapter, and flicked a few pages and thought ok I will stop at the next section break, or that s a short chapter might as well finish it Suddenly half quarter of the book was gone Despite being 550 pages the book just flies by It sets up the next book excellently including a confrontation I have been begging for since the first e novel. Reasons why I didn t like this book It was dull as dirt It was waaaaaaaay too long I was so tired of the angst, no matter how justified it was Rowan is overrated There, I said it I fell asleep listening to the audiobook over 15 times 7 alone for the last 10% The chapters with the witches felt SO POINTLESS BTW, the king outlawed magic, but witches are okay dafuq Oh well, I don t care I feel like each book follows the same plot Celena trains Celena fights with cute guy Mysterious monster is killing people Celena kills monster Fin.UGH I CAN T. BEAUTIFUL JUST SO DANG BEAUTIFUL.I loved the new characters except Sorscha and it was just a wonderful book ESPECIALLY BECAUSE OF MANON AND ROWAN AND CELAENA duh.Now where s my copy of Queen of Shadows
