Kingdoms collide in Sarah J. Maas’s epic fifth installment in the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series.

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 don’t.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Aelin’s journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?

This is the 5th book of the A Throne of Glass series. If you are reading this review I am going to assume you have started this series already. If not you need to stop everything including reading this review and go get the books and get started NOW! No matter your reading status of the series I will do my best to not give any of the juicy spoilery stuff! In this book Aelin is a total and utter badass as usual. You can expect tons of banter as usual. We get some answers for a lot of posed questions from the past but we also get more questions lol. The romance gets kicked up like a thousand and we learn more about many of the side characters. I fell very much in love with Manon, and will say that if you were not so warm to her in her introduction just give her a chance to win you over. The ending…my GOD that ending… is just gut wrenching. Be very prepared for it and know that this is not the last book before you go in.

I did listen to this book as an audiobook and the series sticks with the same narrator, Elizabeth Evans. She does a great job of switching from character to character I applaud her really I have no idea how she keeps all of these characters straight, lol. This was an excellent book and if you are worried that the series is starting to slow down or drag on for too long I promise you that is not the case. I am just as excited for book 6 as I was for book 2 and 3. This series is a definite MUST READ!!!!

The Throne of Glass Series made my Top Ten in 2015, See below to get links and information about the rest of the series…  


Throne of Glass ♥ Crown of Midnight ♥ Heir of Fire ♥ Queen of Shadows

The Throne of Glass Series currently consists of the four books above. I loved the first book and was sucked in from word 1!!! According to goodreads this series is not complete. So if you are one of those people who cannot stand waiting for books you might want to hold off on getting started on this one. Book 5 according to goodreads is slated for release in September of 2016 and a sixth book is also listed.

Celaena Sardothien, when we meet her in Throne of Glass she is a lowly slave who the Crown Prince Dorian and Captain Westfall come to make an offer too. It’s an offer she can’t refuse. We learn that Celaena is a former assassin a woman of many talents, names, and power. There is romance and violence and adventure and even when you think that you know who these people are or who will end up together there is another twist and change. I really enjoyed how Maas introduces these characters and builds them in a way that you slowly become attached to them and their part in the story. Someone you loved in book one may be someone you don’t like at all in book 3. That insignificant character that came out of nowhere ends up saving the day. Those are the plot arcs that make this series addictive and why it made it on my top ten list of the year. I listened to the entire series with Audible and loved the narration.


You can also partake in the prequel novellas that tell the stories of Celaena as an assassin. This is one badass female you definitely want to meet!!!

 Also, if you have not had a chance, be sure to check out the A Court of Thorns and Roses Series by Sarah J. Maas. Book 2, A Court of Mist & Fury is my Top Read of 2016!!!!
