It seems like this book (and the series in general) is either loved or hated. I for one LOVED this book. Celeana finally took care of business. She is developing her relationship with Rowan and for the FIRST time in the series I was actually able to find myself liking Manon. (The rest of the books I just skimmed the chapters with manon and her clan in them and got right back to Celeana’s narrative) This book did seem to be longer than the others but I thought that she had plenty of things to take care of. I would suggest reading the other books in the Throne of Glass series before picking this one up or you will spoil it for yourself.
“Character motivations and interactions. . . are always nuanced and on point, especially as Aelin’s growing maturity offers her new perspectives on old acquaintances. . . Impossible to put down.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“Fans of the high-fantasy series likely won’t mind the protracted story at all, packed as it is with brooding glances, simmering sexual tension, twisty plot turns, lush world building, and snarky banter. . . The final chapters of this installment promise more epic adventures and badder bad guys to defeat in forthcoming volumes.” ―Booklist
