“We lose ourselves in books, we find ourselves there too."

Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil, a man with a soul as black as night…the King who rules from the throne of glass.

“I worry because I care. Gods help me, I know I shouldn’t, but I do. So I will always tell you to be careful, because I will always care what happens.”

Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. The King sees spies and traitors everywhere. He sends her out to murder innocents. To murder – not to assassinate – and that makes all the difference.

“But death was her curse and her gift, and death had been her good friend these long, long years.”

Very quickly Celaena finds ways to smuggle out these would-be-victims, but with the ever-rising number of “survivors” the risk is becoming to great to bear. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.

“you remind me of what the world ought to be. What the world can be.”

Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena’s world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie… and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.

“The best lies were always mixed with truth.”

This book seamlessly picks up shortly after Throne of Glass ends. There’s an ongoing tension between Celaena, Chaol, and Dorian. Despite the lack of magic in the kingdom, there’s clearly some still flowing, and there’s plenty of politics, intrigue, and conspiracy to go around. There was more action, more nastiness, more character development, more surprises, more complications, more sexy, no love triangle – all of this and a well-placed, never-saw-it-coming twist.

“Celaena Sardothien wasn’t in league with Aelin Ashryver Galathynius.

Celaena Sardothien was Aelin Ashryver Galathynius, heir to the throne and rightful Queen of Terranes.

Celaena was Aelin Galathynius, the greatest living threat to Adarlan, the one person who could raise an army capable of standing against the king. Now, she was also the one person who knew the secret source of the king’s power—and who sought a way to destroy it.

And he had just sent her into the arms of her strongest potential allies: to the homeland of her mother, the kingdom of her cousin, and the domain of her aunt, Queen Maeve of the Fae.Celaena was the lost Queen of Terrasen.”

There is also Mort, an ancient talking door knocker who is actually just as sassy as Celaena and I am here for it!
