Book summary:

        You know those series that get better with each book you read and after each one you feel like there is no way to top it. Well Throne of Glass is that too me. After reading the first book I knew that it'd be on my fave shelf, but I had no idea that my feelings for it will grow and grow after each book. After reading Heir of Fire, they've reached that point where I cannot find any proper words for it.

        I shall try though. Firstly I truly hope you've meet Celaena, either through the previous three books, or short stories which accompany this series. If you haven't, well you are at such disadvantage. She is someone you'd love to be, or at least to have by your side. She is fierce, strong and witty, but also very loyal and self-doubting which makes her real. Beside her, this series offers you a great spectra of characters which you'll love reading about and somehow connect with each of them. I won't even start about romance, which even though not being focus in this book still feels so strong. For me the relationships here weren't in just that friendship/romance boat, but they are so strong and everlasting.

       Besides characters and emotions, there is world-building which in this book divided into three settings, still offers a picture and connections in this world. With addition of Manon who gives a new dimension into all this and by that spreading this story even further. For me by adding Manon and Rowan into this mix it didn't just help us to see this world better, but it actually helped for character development. But still not letting them to take over the story as Dorian and Chaol who are still base of this story. Honestly, it's all I could ever ask for.

       Another thing which improved here was the writing, which seems better and somehow sharper. Now, we can just wait for the Queen of Shadows which will rock even more if you ask me.

Rating: 5 stars. 

Until the next time,

  1. While I know most readers actually didn't enjoy this sequel as much as Crown of Midnight, I'm glad to see you did, Tanja! I'm still torn on continuing this series past Throne of Glass but depending on the next novel, I'll hopefully decide one way or the other. Lovely review, dear!

  2. I adore this series, by far my favorite YA fantasy series out there!

  3. Ahhh I know I know I really need to try this series, I'm so bad mainly as I have the first 2 books. I'll do that! SOON!

  4. I absolutely love that series and the more I read it, the more the characters grow on me !

  5. I only just glanced over your review, Tanja. But I can't wait to read this one. Loved the first two especially after Crown of Midnight. And I just adore that latest cover reveal of Queen of Shadows. Great review! :)

  6. I am so excited to continue on with this series! I'm glad that the relationships are developed so well and that the addition of Manon and Rowan actually helps the overall character development. Great review, Tanja! :)

  7. Ahh! I need to read this last book. I am so behind, I had it scheduled for September but it got pushed. I am so glad your love for this series has grown. I can't wait.

  8. "You know those series that get better with each book you read and after each one you feel like there is no way to top it." THIS. I said the same exact thing in my review, these books really do keep getting better and better. I too enjoyed all the new characters and the POVs, it really allowed for so much development!

  9. Wow! It's awesome to see that you enjoyed this book thoroughly. Now stop watching me. You know I'll eventually give in and read the series. ;) Amazing review!
