My Rating:


The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius as war looms on the horizon. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those who don't.

With her heart sworn to the warrior-prince by her side, and her fealty pledged to the people she is determined to save, Aelin will delve into the depths of her power to protect those she loves. But as monsters emerge from the horrors of the past, and dark forces become poised to claim her world, the only chance for salvation will lie in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

In this breathtaking fifth installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, Aelin will have to choose what—and who—to sacrifice if she's to keep the world of Erilea from breaking apart.

“The world will be saved and remade by the dreamers.”

– Sarah J.Maas


It’s taken me a while to get through this novel, not because of the book itself, but because my life has been so crazy busy lately. Much like the rest of Sarah J. Maas’ Throne of Glass series, I enjoyed this novel. It took me a while to talk myself into starting it because we are close to the end of the series and I don’t want it to end. I enjoyed getting to see the different interactions between all of the characters and also getting insight into a few of their minds when the chapter viewpoints changed. Each character continues to grow with the series. The plot never dulls and as far as I could tell there weren’t any major holes to fill that I felt wouldn’t be left open at the close of the series this year. I wish we had seen something from Chaol in this novel. Hopefully he will come back in the next. I am routing for all of my favorite characters to make it through the series unscathed but I also fear that we may see some casualties in the final novel that we did not expect.
