The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those who don't.
As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.
Aelin's journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?
I'm in total shock. Can it be next year yet because I need the next book immediately! Sarah J. Maas is the queen of teen fantasy with her amazing, shocking plot lines and addicting writing skills. It took me a while to read Empire of Storms because there is so much information and the story is getting better and better. You will definitely have a book hangover/be tortured after finishing Empire of Storms (EoS).
The fifth installment (EoS) in this amazing series was perfection wrapped up into one. I think I need a family tree just to remember some of the plot! But now I can be a little scared at what Sarah has planned for the last book. By the end it tore me apart and took bits of my soul with it. When I first started the book I was instantly taken back into this brilliantly plotted world. I loved reading from Aelin, Rowan, Manon, Dorian, Aedion and more because all their perspectives are very important because Sarah is an expect at switching point of views as well as leave you wanting more of that scene. I can also finally say I'm full Team Rowan after reading this beauty and already want to reread it. I loved all the characters just the same. But you do notice that one character was missing throughout the novel: Chaol. I was a little sad we didn't get to see what he was up to but I think we will be seeing him in book 6.
Empire of Storms had so many swoons and feels (chapter 38) that there are no other words to describe it as this book will take you by storm and you will be wondering what happen to the rest of the pages since you need to know what is going to happen next! Especially the way it ended. Throne of Glass is one of the best teen fantasy series that I have read and now I have to wait until the last book comes out. Next year will be hard because we will be saying goodbye to all these characters. I'm looking forward to how Sarah will wrap up her epic series that will be on everyone's wishlists once it comes out!
