    When my sister told me about an early review that promised really bad things happening to our favorite characters in this installment, I didn't care. I didn't actually think that was true; I trusted SJMAAS. But oh, dear nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to face the moment I picked up this damn book. With this review I'm putting these book down and getting some needed rest. I think we all deserve it after dealing with Aelin and t...

    “Maybe the world should burn.” Epicness. That's the only word I can think of to describe Queen of Shadows in order to encompass its complexity and awesomeness, because while I loved Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight blew my mind away and Heir of Fire broke my heart into teensy tiny pieces, neither of those installments felt as grand as this one -- worlds collided, debts were paid and a queen rose to her glory. “Let’s go rattle the s...

    Many people know how I have felt about the books of this series. That I enjoyed the light, fluffy Throne of Glass. That I absolutely loved Crown of Midnight. That Heir of Fire was a slow, plodding disappointment. Did I like Queen of Shadows more than its predecessor? Yes.Do I think it's a fantastic book? No.Do I think you should read it? Well, it depends. It depends on whether you are committed enough to this series and these characters to read 6...

    BRB CRYING FOREVER. This book was a wild ride! While I loved this book, I did feel like the characterization within this book was a bit off. That's the main reason I didn't give this 5 stars. Other than that I was thoroughly happy with what went down in this story, even if certain things didn't go the way I wanted them to. GIVE ME BOOK 5 NOW. K THANKS.

    Post-reading: WOW. No words for this book. 95% love for this book, but the first 300 pages had issues I can't deny. But overall I just love love love how the plot developed! Full review:Check out my review @ A Perfection Called Books**Spoilers from previous books. Slight QoS spoilers about romance.Throne of Glass has been one of my favorite series for a few years now, so I've been impatiently waiting for Queen of Shadows and building the expectat...

    This “review” has a lot of gifs, quotes and feelings.So basically I’ve been waiting a year to read THIS. And yes I said T H I S because I don’t know how I should describe this book.I’m so so disappointed that I’m not sure if I want to read the next book. What happened to Celaena/Aelin? What happened with the characters?I’ve been seeing a lot of comments saying that Celaena and Aelin aren’t the same person. Uhm what? I mean, only b...

    ”When you shatter the chains of this world and forge the next, remember that art is as vital as food to a kingdom. Without it, a kingdom is nothing, and will be forgotten by time.”If you read any of my updates I’m sure you’ll already know how I feel about this book. To say it was better than its predecessors would probably be the understatement of the century so all I’ll say is that Sarah once again surpassed herself. <3There were so ma...

    “But she was her own champion now.” Brutal and magnificent. A force of nature. How else can I describe a book about witches, demons and dark lords, fae queens and warriors, possessed princes, rebels and whores?Queen of Shadows deserves more than 5 stars. Queen of Shadows rattles the stars. “She was a whirling cloud of death, a queen of shadows, and these men were already carrion.” The fire-breathing bitch-queen is back. Ready to gather...

    01/28/16 Everyone is lowering their 2-stars rating to one star, and tbh I completely agree, this is not worth two stars.***times I broke down and cried: 5times I screamed and cussed at the book: 38fucks I give about this series right now: 0 Let’s start this review a bit different. Let’s think of an alternative title for it… how about… I don’t know… "HOW TO RUIN A CHARACTER AND HIS DEVELOPMENT THROUGH 3 MOTHERFUCKING BOOKS IN ONE BOOK"...

    This one takes a close 2nd to Crown of Midnight as my favourite in the series. So so SO good!

    This review is absolutely STUFFED with spoilers. Spoilers to the highest degree. Please, please do not read it if you haven't read the entirety of Queen of Shadows.*deep, pensive sigh*Oh, this book.I could sit here and review this thing objectively, or I could be honest with all of you: this series has a hold over me, so much so that it can lie and cheat and steal and kill (basically, it can be Scarlett O'Hara) and I'll still let it sleep on my c...

    3.5 stars...Okay okay okay so... THIS BOOK. I'm so conflicted, I hated half of the things that happened but loved the other half! I was going to let myself give it 5 stars just for the AWESOME ending (overall the whole second part of the book was AMAZING), but the first part was unbearable! I believe it took me one week to finish it, while the second part I read it only in one day because OMGITWASSOAMAZING and I couldn't stop. BUT YES, the first ...

    Edit: I've been wondering about these two stars. So...changing it to 1. Maas just sticks to her pattern of making characters OOC and Manon isn't enough to redeem this...thing. I can't even call it a book anymore. *if you comment please be civil. I've already had enough bad discussions about this and my patience has a limit. I've already seen enough of "why are they complaining, QoS is perfect." Everyone can have their own opinion, please respect ...

    "Do you think monsters are born or made?" I just... I just... I can't... I just don't know what to say. Celaena is coming for everything they said she couldn't have. Game of Thrones meets Batman. That's what the Throne of Glass series is... and yes it's as epic as that sounds. Sarah J. does it again. Another stunning build of a book. This review is going to be so hard to write. I want to gush. I want to scream. I want to rage about this book, bu...

    Re-read on audio. Still awesome and still loving the narrator of the books ❤MIND BLOWNSooooooooooooo, I loved this book! I was a little iffy there because I wasn't sure if Rowan was going to be in it but it's all good :-) Celaena/Aelin has returned to Rifthold. She's trying to sneak in undercover. She has a little bit of a different look for a bit. A little bit of hair dye goes a long way, but most people knows who she is. She is back to save h...

    I am so impressed with this series. She was fire, and light, and ash, and embers. She was Aelin Fireheart, and she bowed for no one and nothing, save the crown that was hers by blood and survival and triumph. I honestly cannot remember the last time when a series was so consistently good. It's the fourth book and yet the story and the characters feel as fresh as the first. Aelin Galathynius has returned and her life as Celaena Sardothien is a par...

    *** NO SPOILERS! *** Although may contain spoilers for first 3 books.AGH. HOW DO I REVIEW THIS?!?! HOW. JUST. HOW. But do you know the reason I'm gnashing and flopping like an electric eel? I'm not happy with this book. I am a wild wild fan of the first 2 books and the novellas. Like, WILD FAN. Like I hyperventialte when someone says Crown of Midnight because I think it's the best thing the world has ever invented. But I started losing my enthusi...

    WHAT EVEN WAS MY LIFE WITHOUT THIS BOOK?!?!?Oh right, it was nothing. My life was trash before this book. Actual trash. “Let's go rattle the stars” Hands down this was my favorite book from the series so far, none of the other books even came close to this one. I HAVE NOT KNOWN LOVE UNTIL I MET THIS BOOK. I don't even know how to form a coherent review on this. So sorry in advance because this is mainly just going to be a jumbled mess of me t...
