This book took me 2 whole weeks to finish. And after days and days of torture and of forcing myself to JUST READ, I finally finished it. Umm, I thought this was the last book in the series, for some reason? So the ending was definitely shocking. And somehow –somehow– I realized, halfway into the book, that hell, I don’t like the main character anymore.
So you know how in the first two books I was super confused about who I’m supposed to ship Celaena with? Well, I didn’t ship her with either Dorian or Chaol. Then Heir of Fire came in and HALLELUJAH, I found my ship –or so I thought. I went from Rowaelin IS MY FRIGGIN OTP to ugh those two are so annoying super fast.
In this book, Aelin was incredibly bossy, downright annoying, and simply the most irritating drama queen ever. Everytime her chapters come up I’d literally shut the book and go to sleep.
So I’m not giving the Queen of Terrasen popsicles. Instead, I’m giving these 3 popsicles to my babies, Manon, the Thirteen, and Elide. Plus my baes, Dorian, Lorcan (don’t judge) and Abraxos, the love of my life.
What happened at the end might have made me dislike Aelin a little less. But even that amount of selflessness can’t make up for all the shit she pulled. Talking down to Manon, Aedion, and even Rowan for God’s sake. Yeah, thanks, but no thanks.
KINGDOMS WILL COLLIDE.
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 Timesbestselling 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.
