Aelin has risked everything to save her people―but at a tremendous cost. Locked within an iron coffin by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin must draw upon her fiery will as she endures months of torture. Aware that yielding to Maeve will doom those she loves keeps her from breaking, though her resolve begins to unravel with each passing day…
With Aelin captured, Aedion and Lysandra remain the last line of defense to protect Terrasen from utter destruction. Yet they soon realize that the many allies they’ve gathered to battle Erawan’s hordes might not be enough to save them. Scattered across the continent and racing against time, Chaol, Manon, and Dorian are forced to forge their own paths to meet their fates. Hanging in the balance is any hope of salvation―and a better world.
And across the sea, his companions unwavering beside him, Rowan hunts to find his captured wife and queen―before she is lost to him forever.
As the threads of fate weave together at last, all must fight, if they are to have a chance at a future. Some bonds will grow even deeper, while others will be severed forever in the explosive final chapter of the Throne of Glass series.
This has been a journey. One with emotion, one with lots and lots of emotions! And I’ll have to say that this was pretty great conclusion to the series!
There are a lot of POVs here! And I love so many of the characters that I can’t really choose a favorite. The only POVs I could have probably done without were Aedion’s and Lysandra’s. The others just had so much more going on within them. Manon and her witches had to be my favorite! Lorcan! Loved him! My baby Dorian! Rowan is swoon! Yrene is courageous! Nesryn is fierce! Fenrys I want to pet his face! Chaol we’re cool now after the last book! Elide you’re brave! Lysandra you can do some cool tricks! Aedion you’re dependable!
Aelin has been through so dang much, and I feel like she’s such a strong character. She’s not selfish—she fights for her country, her people. We need heroes like that in the real world!
The writing was superb, and seriously, Mass deserves 5 stars just for writing such a huge book and series! Wow, the editing rounds for that scares me to think about! But seriously, I give it a 5 because it rocked! I will say that I need an epilogue of a certain character…
