“You cannot pick and choose what parts of her to love.”
We all know about Celaena Sardothien, better known in this book as Aelin Ashryver Galathynius. She’s now at a new land (Wendlyn) because Chaol sent her to that place to protect her. Meanwhile she confronts some stuff about her heritage that could change her life forever. She has to learn how to control her magic and how to use it properly and the one who’s going to teach her is Rowan Whitethorn. While she’s there, Aedion and Chaol are planning something to destroy the King of Adarlan. Also, Dorian’s has a new love interest. Oh, and Sarah J. Maas also introduce some witches and one of them is Manon Blackbeak.
Let’s start with what I hated the most. The King of Adarlan is the most inhuman, wicked, evil and monstrous character I’ve ever read about. I hate him with my soul. I hate everything he did to Aelin and to her parents when she was a child, what he did to Dorian, what he did to Sorscha and what he’s doing to the whole world.
As I said before, Sarah introduces Manon Blackbeak. She’s a witch trying to be crowned as a Wing Leader. I didn’t like her at all. I had to force myself to read her chapters because they were really boring. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the wyverns and Abraxos, but I didn’t enjoyed Manon’s character as other people did.
“I claim you, Rowan Whitethorn. I don’t care what you say and how much you protest. I claim you as my friend.”
Celaena Sardothien has grown a lot. Her character development has been fantastic. Throughout this book you could see how much she changes. And when I say that she changes, I’m talking about her thoughts and about what she believes. Also, you could see how broken she was, and how much she blame herself for everything. She learned a lot about her heritage, about stuff the stupid King was doing. She was practicing with Rowan Whitethorn and he was a bit cruel to her but then, their friendship grew a lot. He helped her to make that transition from a cruel assassin to a badass queen. The truth is, a lot of people didn’t like Rowan at all, but I love him since the first time he appeared in this story. Rowan Whitethorn, my favorite Fae. He’s intense and freaking protective, but cute. They both are amazing as a team.
“I do. Until my last breath, and the world beyond. To whatever end.”
Chaol Westfall was sad because he knew that Celaena would always pick him but, Aelin would not. He was working along with Aedion to destroy the King of Adarlan but now the King knows everything so they’re fucked. Aedion Ashryver is my baby now. Well, Dorian is MY BABY but yeah. I love how much he cares about Aelin and how loyal he is to her. Aedion is Aelin’s cousin and best friend. He’s now in the dungeons, bound from head to toe.
DORIAN, DORIAN, DORIAN!!!!! I’M SUFFERING WITH YOU. At first I was so happy because he found a new love interest. She was Sorscha, a healer (I LOVED HER AS MUCH AS I LOVED NEHEMIA). They were so freaking happy and she helped him a lot with his magic. The BASTARD AKA The King of Adarlan killed her in a brutal way. He didn’t care about Dorian’s feelings; he just killed her like she was nothing. But that’s NOT all; the BASTART put a collar of Wyrdstone on Dorian’s neck. I’m still recovering from this.
Sarah J. Mass has done it again. This book was a roller coaster of emotions. I absolutely loved it. Thank you, Sarah, for the Throne of Glass series.
“She was Aelin Ashryver Galathynius – and she would not be afraid.”
