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 book was easily my most anticipated of 2018.

Having been following this series since the third book was released, I was beyond excited and a little sad that it was finally coming to a close. How would it be handled?

This review will remain relatively short, so as to avoid spoilers. But here were a couple things I was expecting from this book:

  • Tragedy
  • Romance
  • Major heroism

Now these terms basically describe every book in the series, but I feel this book covers all of them wonderfully. There were times I was swooning, on the verge of tears, and rooting for the protagonists big time.

Towards the end, I will admit, I was scared Maas was going to take the easy way out. But a completion of the final 100 pages quickly made me fall in love with the ending.

All in all, this was a beautiful close to the series that had me rolling through all of the emotions.

Considering that this was nearly a 1,000 page novel, I could make this review way longer than it is. But, I think my rating will speak for itself.
