Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past . . .
She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die just to see her again. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return.
Celaena’s epic journey has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions across the globe. This fourth volume will hold readers rapt as Celaena’s story builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.
You make me want to live, Rowan. Not survive; not exist. Live.
I was always looking toward the horizon, always wondering what waited across the next ocean, over the next mountain. But I think … I think that whole time, all those centuries, I was just looking for you.
As if dealing with Aelin’s plotline was not enough, the author continued with the Blackleak Witch-Clan subplot that started in the previous book. This was why I mentioned in my previous review that this series was very close to become an Adult Fantasy novel, because of its plots and character complexities. Manon continued to evolve. Being the Wing Leader, she had to be ruthless and simply had to had no empathy, one quality that their clan was proud of or taught to become. Her dragon taught her, or in some ways had influenced her to become otherwise
Abraxos had tensed, his tail shifting over the stones. The useless beast was worried for the girl. Manon narrowed her eyes at him. “Isn’t your kind supposed to eat young women?”
I’m looking forward to more of Manon and Elide story.
Multifaceted characters that keep on evolving.
Entertaining plots with stupendous comic relief and sassy comebacks.
Swoon worthy moments that will make your heart swells.
There wasn’t really anything that I could complain, save the time that it took for each book to come out. But, it is so worth the wait.
