SYNOPSIS

Aelin Galathynius has vowed 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. The knowledge that yielding to Maeve will doom those she loves keeps her from breaking, but her resolve is unraveling with each passing day…

With Aelin captured, friends and allies are scattered to different fates. Some bonds will grow even deeper, while others will be severed forever. As destinies weave together at last, all must fight if Erilea is to have any hope of salvation.

Years in the making, Sarah J. Maas’s New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series draws to an explosive conclusion as Aelin fights to save herself―and the promise of a better world.

MY THOUGHTS

I can’t believe this series is actually over! This book was freakin’ long, but it was GREAT! There were so many moments I thought all hope was lost before Maas ramped up the stakes and the action and BLEW. ME. AWAY.

Aelin continued to execute so many clever schemes in addition to displays of staggering power. A lot of characters demonstrated so much growth, and there were so many surprises. And can we talk about Dorian??

This series started off a little rough for me, but I cannot believe how much I grew to love it. This conclusion made me gasp and cry, and it had a satisfying ending. (Although after nearly 1000 pages I still want more!!!)
