The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. 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. –
Synopsis from bloomsbury.com
THINGS ARE ‘BOUT TO BLOW-UP! No, they already did. This book is the BOMB! I meant the whole series is. No words can describe just how I feel right now. Too much revelations, everything clicking to their respective places, and that smart-ass fire-breathing bitc* queen is the center of it.
I came to the aid of my computer because I can’t contain my excitement half-way through the book and I know I am not the only one ~~~
I put my reader down many times. I am not giving up. It’s just that, I wanted a full minute or more to myself just to process things, gather my thoughts and predict what’s about to happen but I can’t!
The whole ride through the book is INTENSE. Insanely intense. At first, it was just fun and all, then came the last few chapters when everything is already 180 degrees turning fast to seriousness and all.
So yeah the book! 😀 Pairing. So much pairing in here, c’mon we are fighting a war but I guess it is indeed the right time to have someone to depend on while the world depends on you. Well!
There’s also just too much Fae-male dose in here. What with Aedion and Rowan, I can manage, but with Gavriel and Feryns? Have I said “I can’t contain” yet? Coz really, I can’t. And with Lorcan, too and oh boy, how I’d love to meet a fae-male arrogance and angst ( don’t forget the territorial fae bastard too!) incarnate in real life. I can’t wait for them to take the blood oath to Queen Aelin! Its obvious they would do that soon judging by how protective they can be to her in the marshes.
Oh and that reunion of Aelin, Aedion and Elide? I cried with happiness because the last time they were in the same room together was when they were still children, and now, now, all grown-ups for they have faced different trials that developed them in to a flawed but wise adults, queens and lords indeed, having the burden to save the world. Behold, the remnants of their court **** (stupid stars) *insert Ren*
I love how Aelin’s unpredictable moves, how she can conceal the deeper motives of her decisions until she dimmed the right time to reveal it, that I can’t fathom. She just let them know whenever she feels the information will become relevant and she surely enjoys their reaction. But the last part is just *SOBS* so heartfelt.
I miss Chaol though. And that thing with Manon, I knew she would go against her grandmother! And she’s about to make a big change. Her connection with Aelin, her role that’s just so touhing that she would do that. She still kept her swag of immortality though. I thought she might soften a bit but I was actually wrong.
“When something is about to end, there’s just another one about to come.”
Looking forward for the sitting-on-edge feeling again. Is it 2017 yet?
Hands down to Sarah for being good at foreshadowing. How an earth are you so smart, queen? Looking forward for the TV show though. At least I could tell, I’ve already read the books and no one can take it back!
I actually highlighted half of my eBook copy. No kidding haha!
