I always love the covers of Sarah J Maas’s books. They’re always unique and look really cool. The girl on the front, who represents the main character, is always fierce and looks ready to slay the world.
These plot twists had me chopped and the ending. Omigosh, the ending made me feel some type of way that I really can’t even explain. The plot twists in the Throne of Glass series just keep on coming and make you wonder how one person can make you so confused and surprised every time. I love how every little detail ends up being of some sort of relevance in this series.
What is not to love about Sarah J Maas’s characters? Aelin has grown so much from the first book and she is the fire-breathing bitch queen every girl aspires to be. This book had a lot of ships that tugged at all your heart-strings. Aelin and Rowan. Lysandra and Aedion. Dorian and Manon. Lorcan and Elise. These ships had me wanting more every time.
Chaol, one of the original characters from the first book, was not in this book at all. He was mentioned like once or twice, but did not appear. I don’t really mind about that, except that he used to be really important; but, I do understand why he wasn’t really important enough to be in this book.
It was excellent as always. I love how SJM changes the point of views often and gives you a glimpse of what everyone is thinking and doing. The only downfall to this is that I never gt enough of a character’s point of view like ever.
Do I Like It? Would I Recommend It?:
Would I recommend? Of course! SJM is my favorite author as of this moment. Throne of Glass is honestly my favorite fantasy series and any fantasy lover should read this series. And honestly? Each book is better than the last. Every time, SJM writes a book for this series she keeps getting better.
Rating: 5 stars
I love this book to the ends of the earth. Everything just ties together so nicely. After reading this book, I was shook for like three hours before I snapped out of it. The ending was just that good and I couldn’t stop thinking about. This took me forever to read because of school and everything, but I’m glad that I finished it and I don’t ever want the series to end.
