“The people you love are just weapons that will be used against you.”
― Sarah J. Maas,
The series just keeps getting better and better. And bloodier and bloodier. My gosh, this installment of Sarah J. Maas’ Throne of Glass series is one hell of a wild ride!
THE WRITING. The third installment of Throne of Glass series is awesome, just like its predecessors. The book was told in different POVs, well its kind of an omniscient narrating style where we get to have a glimpse and though the events that took part in the world. Its a good style for we get to know a character’s reasoning on why they are doing that sort of thing. It didn’t eventually sucked me in the way the first two books did. The writings style is also ‘too’ detailed thought at some point I think its a good thing for the author can better make the readers picture the world but too much description on something just made me wanna skip some lines though I didn’t read it like that. All in all, its amazing, the execution of the events and scenes of the book are all well and properly laid out for the reader.
THE PLOT. The suspense almost killed me. There is so much build up that happened in the book that all came crashing down on me on the right effing moment! There are new characters introduced who each have an agenda that moves and unravel the plot. I really like the flow of the story and the way it. The book maybe the my least favourite so far but the transition of everything is really remarkable though a bit slow paced but OH MY GODS! Nothing prepared me at what Maas dumped on me. Brilliant! And heartbreaking. HOW COULD YOU!
THE CHARACTERS. I love the character developments in this book! I like how Celaena Sardothien learned to accept who she is and the vital role she’s gonna play in the game long since played by the King of Adarlan. I like watching her train with the Fae Prince, Rowan Whitethorn, as she grew to learn her power and embrace it so is her growing and developing relationship with the Fae Prince. I’ve grown to ship the two even though they are distant, distant relatives. I like how they trade stories of thier past as they grow comfortable with each other that also gave us the deets on the events that transpired during Aelin’s escape and survival in the sacking of Terrasen. It hurt me so much that there is already a big rift now between Chaol Westfall and Dorian Havilliard, their friendship is admirable but the wall that raised between built on secrets and avoided issues just make me sad. I’m happy for Dorian though because he found a new love with the healer but oh gods, that short loved romance was heart shattering! I loved Aedion Ashryver and his antics, like, hell he’s one brave general for trying that antic with the King of Adarlan. Other key players of the oncoming war were introduced such as the Ironteeth witch clans. Manon Blackbeak of the Blackbeack witch clan is a really interesting character, I would love to know more about her and see her develop in the upcoming books and see if she have a shred of humanity in her brutal and immortal witch self. We also get to know the extent of brutality and ruthlessness of the King where he doesn’t care about the number of innocents he butchers as long as he meets his ends and fulfill his agenda.
THE ENDING. Well… FUCK! Sarah J. Maas must be enjoying her glass of wine right now while she watch her readers riles up clamoring for the next installment! That ending, when it all came crashing down on me, I w was ll like “‘Ey, I saw that one coming!” but nope, I didn’t especially the on on Sorscha. Aelin Galathynuis is one hell of a bad ass fiery bitch queen and I want to see her set fire on Adarlan in the next book. Also, DORIAN!! What the hell?! Why did you do this to us SJM! WHY?!My heart and emotions ain’t taking this so well!
