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?
Aelin Galathynius must pull together an army in order to defeat an approaching, cataclysmic event in the fifth installment of the Throne of Glass series. Let’s review!
Amazing. I seriously love every single thing about this book. To start, the plot and setting expands to incorporate a global view of the brewing war. Each story line is evenly divided between the various narrators. And let’s slow clap to all of the incredibly daring and intelligent women in this novel. Aelin, Mannon, Elide, Lysandra – all of these women’s arcs are extraordinarily written. The men provide an intelligence and power to the narrative, but they never usurp the women’s power and intelligence. My one complaint lies with the world building. Previous novels should have spent more time building up a knowledge of the gods and goddesses of the world. I should not feel confused every time a god (or goddess) is mentioned, trying to remember if they existed outside of this one book.
tl;dr Loved it! If you have enjoyed the series up to this point, you will not be disappointed in this installment.
