Heir of Fire: Book Review

Book Title: Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3)
Author: Sarah J Maas
Genre: Fantasy
Target Audience: YA

To whatever end

Book three in the Throne of Glass series I’ve been told is where the story truly gets going and on that basis, I have to carry on. Plus the first two were really good.

Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3)Celaena has survived deadly contests and shattering heartbreak―but at an unspeakable cost. Now, she must travel to a new land to confront her darkest truth . . . a truth about her heritage that could change her life―and her future―forever. Meanwhile, brutal and monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, intent on enslaving her world. Will Celaena find the strength to not only fight her inner demons, but to take on the evil that is about to be unleashed?

The bestselling series that has captured readers all over the world reaches new heights in this sequel to the New York Timesbest-selling Crown of Midnight. Packed with heart-pounding action, fierce new characters, and swoon-worthy romance, this third book will enthrall readers from start to finish.

What I thought

Wow. just wow. When people have told me it gets better they weren’t lying. This book was truly amazing.

Celaena is getting better and better with each book in the series and it’s clear that she is her own woman and she doesn’t need a man to get what she wants/needs/deserves.

I know a woman has “needs” per se but at the moment she seems to be doing just fine by herself. She’s strong, she’s powerful, she’s smart, she is three dimensional and I really do love her.

Rowan has come across to me a bit like Rhysand. (I know Rowan came first but I read ACOTAR first.) Now when I say he came across like Rhysand what I mean is I wasn’t sure of him at first but he grew on me loads and I really think he’s Aelin’s “the one”. He seemed so cold and calculating at first but she got him to open up and warm up and now it seems there is nothing he won’t do for her.

Dorian has found the same for him in the form of Sorscha the healer. It was so nice for Dorian to be able to move on after Celaena and to find someone to help him try and control his powers is precious. But then as always seems to be the case in these type of stories poor Sorscha gets eliminated from his life and I felt heartbroken for him especially when you consider what his father did to him next.

The part with Manon seemed a little odd in comparison to the other character parts but I’m sure that with time we’ll learn more about her. from what I’ve already read, I do like her but I need to know more about her.

So as I finished it at 23:40 last night I have been to Waterstones to buy the next two books in the series today so I don’t have to wait to see what happens next. Just slightly disappointed that I now have to wait until October for the conclusion.

So what rating do I give this book? It can only be


“She was Aelin Ashryver Galathynius—­and she would not be afraid.”

What did you think of this story? If you haven’t read it yet would you consider it? Did any of the characters grow on you? Let me know in the comments.
