  • Simona Bartolotta
    *Do I need to remind you to be civil? No, I don’t. Good kids.This is the story of how Sarah J. Maas reviewed her own poetics in one of her books."You will hate any moment of peace or happiness."(Because rest assured they'll use every single one of them to have sex or to seduce someone into having sex, and sometimes not even imminent danger will be enough of a deterrent. Sadly. A massacre or two would have spiced things up.)"Dorian offered a laz...

    “Where do you think you’re going?” Darrow demanded.She looked over her shoulder. “To call in old debts and promises. To raise an army of assassins and thieves and exiles and commoners. To finish what was started long, long ago.” 3 1/2 stars. Much better than Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows, methinks. But maybe not if you're unable to skim over the gross love scenes between Aelin and Rowan, or you just can't deal with a book where Chao...

    Here are my reviews of the previous books in this series:Throne of GlassCrown of MidnightThe Assassin's BladeHeir of FireQueen of ShadowsThese two girls said it all Simona’s review , Paige’s video *sigh* I’m not sure where to start. I’ve pretty much loved all the previous books in this series but aghhh this one.

  • Andrea
    “My name is Aelin Ashryver Galathynius …And I will not be afraid.” Someone willing to talk? This book destroyed me and I think I need therapy to endure the wait and pain until next year.Edit: So, I'll need to wait another year to know what happens next... Not fair Sarah J. Maas, not fair. I know there's another book coming but really, I just don't care much for Chaol at the time.-Why did I read Queen Of Shadows so fast?Dammit, this happens ...
  • Andreea Pop
    Brilliance. Sheer, pure brilliance. This is what this book is. Everything I wanted and everything I didn't know I wanted. It's a whirlwind of emotions. Quite probably, the best in the series. Full review to come.
  • Nick
    This book is a modern masterpiece.
  • Jesse (JesseTheReader)
    I'll have a full video review discussing my thoughts soon.

    “The world will be saved and remade by the dreamers.”It was unexpectedly relieving to slip back into this world. Initially, I was dreading this sequel because there was just so much that could go completely wrong, but Sarah J. Maas seriously knows her stuff. She handled the situations she put my favorite witches through with excellence. This review contains *spoilers*.Right from the start, we get to hear from Elena Galathynius, which, final...
  • Katerina
    All Hail Queen Maas!I may hate her right now, I may be cursing her name and shaking and screaming, but deep down I love her with an unprecedented reverence. She can't be human, no, she is a terrible, brilliant and cruel deity that messes with us mortals. For the past 48 hours I've been fighting and bleeding in Erilea. Now, I'm in a daze. Powerful gusts of wind scattered my mind. Bright fire reduced my sanity to cinders. And icicles have pierced m...
  • Paige (Enchantology)
    1.5 starsHere's a compilation of my live Snapchat updates. Some jumbled thoughts:I don't care about any of the characters that I'm supposed to care about anymore. The longer you spend with SJM's characters, the more it seems like she's completely incapable of keeping character's consistent or giving them realistic development. Not caring about these characters has a significant impact on one's ability to enjoy this book, as so much of it hinges o...

    I still want to give those 6⭐ so let's suppose I actually did itFull review on my Blog: The Dacian She-Wolf 🐺Kingdoms will collide yeah, yeah, whatever. This is almost the last thing that interests me about this book at this point. GIVE ME THAT BOSS-ASS GIRL POWER I NEED!GIVE ME THOSE SUPERB SISTERHOOD AND BROTHERHOOD AND POSITIVE EMOTIONAL-PACKED SCENES!GIVE ME MORE MANON, ELIDE AND LYSANDRA ACTION BECAUSE THEY ARE FUCKING SUPREME!GIVE ME.....
  • Kai
    I have an entire bag full of EoS bullshit that I need to unpack so if there’s one thing that SJM did not disappoint at, it was giving me leverage to trash her books. Honestly, she should get an award for the sheer amount of crap that you can put in a 700-page book. If I had to sum up Empire of Storms in one word, I’d choose disturbing. Not positively. Not because of cliffhangers, suspense, drama. In this TED talk, I will point out the many fa...

    ❝But Aelin had promised herself, months and months ago, that she would not pretend to be anything but what she was. She had crawled through darkness and blood and despair—she had survived.❞ Like others, I either hated this or loved it. I am on neither side, but I am in the middle. I'm not the biggest fan of half stars, so 3.5 doesn't exist for me, it's just 3. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it. I loved the character development, hated ...

    best book ever.i need to breathe.can you please message me if you have read thisi need to talk about it
  • jessica
    rereading this series has been the best decision. i completely forgot how much i loved this book.feelings that stayed the same:- shock and awe that this surpasses ‘queen of shadows’ in terms of creativity, foresight, and complexity. - i only like manon if she is with other main characters, so everyone finally meeting is a big win for her character. - i miss choal. i know why and im excited to see him again in the next book, but man. only two ...

    ”The world,” Aelin said, “will be saved and remade by the dreamers, Rolfe.”So, it took me ages to start writing this review and truth be told I’m still not sure if I’m ready to do it. This book was the equivalent of a wild roller coaster, just with the minor and rather distinctive difference that there actually was no brake in the end. It felt like an amazing ride up until the moment the brakes failed and the entire waggon tumbled int...

    “Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen, knew the time would soon come to prove just how much she'd bleed for Erilea.”    Had to give myself some time after reading this epic book, to gather my thoughts, and pull myself off the floor. I think I've had some time to get it together and am finally ready to right a review for this book. We're pretty deep into the Throne of Glass Series so writing reviews for it are getting harder and harder. It's...
  • Khurram
    Just an amazing book. My expectations were sky high for this book. The Throne of Glass has been one faverite series in a long time. Every book seemed to get better and better. With these kinds of high hope I was just though this book would let me down somewhere. The only let down is the book is finished and I can't wait for the next one. It not only lived up to my expectations but sapassed them. One thing I will put a note on is there is a lot mo...

Yes, I'm crazy =) Did anyone else get the Barnes & Noble edition with he beautiful cover art on the inside front pages and the inside back pages? They are beautiful!THIS BOOK IS FREAKING EPIC AND I LOVED IT AND I LOVE ALL OF EVERYONE IN THE BOOK AND I LOVE ROWAN AND ...

    Full spoiler free review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qr-mo...I FINALLY GODS-DAMNED DID ITIt was long and it was difficult but it was worth it. I have the hardest time getting through Sarah J. Maas books because they're so long and there's so much going on, so I complain A TON as I'm reading it, but I always end up loving it in the end.

    After re-reading a few parts I cannot help but rate it lower. Well, maybe it'll be one of those books that I rate lower and lower with every time I re-read some parts and revise them in my head. Oh, SJM, you could have done it so much better. Why? Pity.I will start with the flaws.Well, the "mature" content that reminded me a bit of fanfictions from AO3, not because it was horrible, but because it was given too many pages and written in an over-th...
  • Kiki
    Another review gone! But my Feelings have Changed! I can't believe how different I felt about this book the second time reading it. I'm going to properly review all of these books separately once I've finished Kingdom of Ash. So RTC, but the reviews will actually happen this time because I have A LOT of feelings.
  • Aly (In Wonderland)
    Reread: April/May 2017WHY. DO. I. DO. THIS. TO. MYSELF.Honestly, I'm terrified for Tower of Dawn because, hell, if it all went to crap at the end of Empire of Storms, what on earth are Chaol and Nesryn dealing with in the Southern continents? I am dying to find out, but also too scared. Hulp.I shall go mourn my babies now. After reading: I am dead.Basically, Maas is the reason I have trust issues when it comes to book. She is too skilled at rippi...
  • Hannah
    Wow. Just wow.I'll be filming a full video review for this so I'll keep my thoughts here brief. I didn't have high expectations going into this because, as this series has gone on, I've increasingly lost interest in most of the characters and the plot. But this took everything I didn't like in the series and multiplied it by 10000 and took everything I loved and shattered it to pieces.For a while, I actually really enjoyed the direction of the pl...
  • Fiona
    I did it. I got my hands on an early release of Empire of Storms and binge-read it (however painful that was).And oh my gracious god what did I just read.Look, if I wanted fanfic I'd go to archiveofourown, not go and buy one in a bookstore. Honestly I'd also get better quality on ao3 than I got in this book.Queen of Shadows was a bit of a disappointment but thisThis was painful to read, this is an insult to the genre.This is blasphemy.(view spoil...
