BLURB

Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy.

While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?


FAVORITE QUOTES

I think [Celaena] like to suffer. You collect scars because you want proof that you are paying for whatever sins you've committed - Rowan

She would not let that light go out.
She would fill the world with it, with her light--her gift. She would light up the darkness, so brightly that all who were lost or wounded our broken would find their way to it, a beacon for those who still dwelled in that abyss. It would not take a monster to destroy a monster-but light, light to drive out the darkness.




Lots of people have and will review HEIR OF FIRE which is fine by me, gives me the perfect excuse to do a lazy girl review...

There are wyverns and badass witches and this is from the Baba Yellowlegs thread. I don't know yet if these nefarious witches led by this lady called, Manon, will be Celaena's allies or nemesis but they sure are a curious and scary bunch. Their storyline sure was interesting even if they pose a threat.

I love Aedion, Celaena's long lost cousin. He is like the combination of Legolas and Eomir with his fae looks, keen sense, ruthlessness in the battlefield, and loyalty to Celaena/Aelin's memory. 

Dorian is coming to his own. I'm glad that his infatuation with Celaena is finally put to rest however it seems like tragedy isn't far behind...

... and well you know how this ended. 

Oh Chaol, why do you have to be such a hero?! 

As for Celaena, this girl is barely unrecognizable and she went full on Carrie here, I loved it!

She has grown tremendously in HEIR OF FIRE. I could write up a review just about her character alone but I thought I'd "sing" it instead. This is a lazy girl's review after all...

*fast forward to 3:53, to me that's how it felt like when Celaena
faced off with Queen Bitch Maeve*

So boys and gals, the mad gushing and wild fangirling is valid, HEIR OF FIRE, the latest Throne of Glass novel by Sarah J. Maas is EPIC! It'll make you feel a wide range of emotions from the wholesome, to the romantic, down to the bloody and manic. I surely took my time reading this baby, savored each and every chapter for days because I don't want it to end. I have to make myself slow down otherwise this will be a quick read not because of its length but because its packed. HEIR OF FIRE killed it! This book is a game changer in more ways than one starting with the genre. IMO, HEIR OF FIRE transitioned the series from YA to full on epic fantasy. So if you're a fan please do us and yourselves a favor, get the book today and start reading. If you haven't started this one yet then you're missing out on something really good. Every installment is jaw dropping. SJMaas is a true fan of fantasy, she knows what we readers love and she delivered.

  5. I've yet to finish Throne of Glass! Man, I suck! For some reason, I wasn't really getting into it but I think it's because I tried on audio and the narrator didn't really engage me. So it's on my pause shelf right now but will def pick it up again and this time, I think I'll go for the traditional reading route lol

    I skimmed your review since I still need to finish book 1 but I can feel your Fangirl love! I really need to step up my game and finish this series! I think almost everybody I know loves it! Thanks Braine! :)

  13. Now that I have read the series, I can't stand the first cover, it does not fit the series at all. The new covers are so much better. I love that you are so enthusiastic about this series. I am starting this one this weekend. Looking forward to seeing how everything pays out. I have heard such great things about it.

  14. I haven't started Throne of Glass yet, Braine, but it's on my list of series I really want to read. And I'm very happy to see that even the third book really did it for you :)
    Have a great afternoon and evening.

  15. So much love for Heir of Fire around the blogosphere! I've got my copy, and I'm just waiting for Ally to finish her current read so we can read HoF together. It took me a while to recover last year from Crown of Midnight, so I'm not sure how I'm going to cope once I'm done with HoF. Glad you loved it, my sister!

  16. YAY I am so glad you enjoyed it as well, I thought it was awesome and really expanded on the world, even though some of those new characters were a bit of an overkill! Celaena just gets more and more awesome during each and every installment :)

  18. Yay, so happy you loved it. To be honest I am 25% in and I am a bit bored. I don't like all these different POVs.

    1. I'm not the biggest multiple POV fan either but I didn't mind it much with this one. I feel she's expanding the world so it's a necessary evil at this point.
