Follow Chaol on his sweeping journey to a distant empire in this next instalment of the Throne of Glass series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas.

This book has a large focus on disability that is fantastically accurate, the characters are vivid and developed and the plot, though not at all vastly paced, suits the book that has been written

My rating: <a href="">4 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />

Alright, I feel as if I need to come clean and be completely honest; I went into this book absolutely expecting to hate it. I was more than a little peeved at the push backs, and was just so eager to see what happened next. So even though I rated this four stars, I'll admit that it may seem like a great book because I expected it to be so terrible that even a couple of chapters of goodness would make it amazing... or maybe I'm being too harsh?<br /><br />I've always admired Sarah J Maas, however I never really enjoyed the way she would change characters completely just because she wanted to change the plot a little. Maas basically killed Chaol, he was written as a strong willed, yet loyal character, however Maas crumbled that personality, just so we would like Rowan more; and that never sat well with me. I expect it would have been so difficult to try and make Chaol interesting again, and I have to admit that Maas did it, Chaol wasn't annoying, he wasn't that hard to read, and I enjoyed it - albeit begrudgingly. <br /><br />Don't be fooled, this book isn't necessarily important to the series at all, you get maybe one or two major plot game changers, but these can be summed up really quickly and did not need a long novel to do so. I wouldn't necessarily say that this book is imperative to read, unless you're a die hard fan. This book is a romance, and that is all. A beautiful romance, and one that I enjoyed much more than Maas' other couples (this one just made more sense to me). <br /><br />I might not sound excited about this book, but I do have to admit that I reacted very fangirl-like at certain points, and the book was still filled with the usual humour which Maas is known for, but I have to say it's hard to read while knowing exactly what's happening to Aelin. One moment you're enjoying a blossoming romance, the other, you're tearing your hair out in worry about much more loved characters. A great - but slow - addition to a beloved series, but one I think would be more suited when the timing isn't so dire.<br /><br /><a class="jsShowSpoiler spoilerAction">(view spoiler)</a><span class="spoilerContainer" style="display: none">[ I was so happy with the very cute ending, it just made me feel a lot better about the series, and then I turned the page... it. was. heart-breaking! I couldn't begin to explain how these two pages messed me up, and now I'm in perpetual agony about where the series will go next. I will say however, that I don't think Sarah J Maas is an author who kills off major game players, after finishing the Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy, and then Tower of Dawn, I've come to believe that she is one of those authors who will go completely out of their way to avoid killing off characters - not that I'm complaining about that! Although I'm worried about the fate of Aelin, I'll admit that I'm not worrying too much, I'm sure it'll end well for everyone <a class="jsHideSpoiler spoilerAction">(hide spoiler)</a>]</span>
