Everyone Celaena Sardothian loves has been taken from her. But she's at last returned to the empire - for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past.
She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die just to se her again. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen's triumphant return.
Celaena's epic journey has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions across the globe. This fourth volume will hold readers rapt as Celaena's story builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world
This book, and this book alone, is enough incentive to hurry up and finish my "assigned" reading. I haven't quite gushed over the Throne of Glass series like I have Maggie Stiefvater's Raven Boys, but dear goodness do I love this tale. It's big, and it's complicated, and it's building into an amazing confrontation that I am both excited and terrified of seeing. Celaena isn't without her faults. She's super stubborn, but she's fierce. And she's wild. And she's full of mystery.
So excited! If you haven't picked up the first one yet, please do yourself a favor and get on that. Because it's about to get really good (even though it's already really good...but you know what I mean.)
