Product Description


Celaena balances between the living and the dead, humans and faeries, while her world creeps toward a dreadful war between the great and the monstrous. I was afraid to put the book down! ... Celaena is as much an epic hero as Frodo or Jon Snow! (Praise for HEIR OF FIRE, bestselling author Tamora Pierce)

I believe the word "unputdownable" was created for this very book (Praise for 'Throne of Glass', Once Upon a Time)

Without a doubt the best fantasy book I have ever read in my life (Praise for 'Throne of Glass', K-Books)

Packed with brilliant, intelligent and witty characters, corrupted rulers, dark and good magic alike. The world-building is incredible, and the plot promises something even greater from the sequel . . . This is not one to be missed (Praise for 'Throne of Glass', Pen to Paper)

Like Cinderella's love story and the action and competition of The Hunger Games, handsome princes, ball gowns and deathly masquerade balls? Then this is the book for you! This book is going to be HUGE! (Praise for 'Throne of Glass', Dark Readers)

A rich and powerful sequel that will be loved by Throne of Glass fans everywhere! (Praise for 'Crown of Midnight', Bookworm Blogger)

Enthralling and well-paced, exhilarating and wonderfully-written (Praise for 'Crown of Midnight', Realm of Fiction)

With an ending that left me gaping in shock, my heart battered and my knuckles white, Crown of Midnight was a brilliant sequel and I can't wait to be back in Celaena's world again (Praise for 'Crown of Midnight', So Many Books, So Little Time)

There are seriously no words to explain how epic this book was. I am still sat here completely reeling from the ending and my head is just spinning from all the epic awesomeness that happened (Praise for 'Crown of Midnight', K-Books)

The plot is riddled with intrigue, and the fighting comes thick and fast. Crown of Midnight does not disappoint! (Praise for 'Crown of Midnight', Dark Readers)

Wow. Just . wow. So many things happened in this book. It took a completely different direction to anything I expected. It may be my favourite in the series yet (Praise for HEIR OF FIRE, Planet Print)

THE book of 2014 . I laughed, I bawled my eyes out and I never wanted this to end. A story of family, love, friendship, loyalty and self-discovery, steeped in Maas' signature style, the plot will leave you reeling and breathless for more (Praise for HEIR OF FIRE, Fiction in Fiction in Fiction)

Magic and fantasy come right to the forefront and it is credit to Maas that she can create not one kingdom but two that are so vividly described, so rich with detail and character plots (Praise for HEIR OF FIRE, Words Are the Key to Your Soul)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Brilliant. Sarah J Maas is becoming my favourite author. Her writing style is engaging, engrossing, intelligent, and easy to follow. Her imagination and storytelling are amazing. This story is a lot slower than the Crown of Midnight; it concentrates more on the character development.

At the end of the last book we learned not only who Celaena Sardothien really is but also what she really is. Her relationship with Chaol is in tatters. Having "suggested" to the king to send her on a mission for her own protection, and cutting Prince Dorian out of the loop, Chaol is in no man’s land. Distancing himself from Dorian, for Dorian own protection, he starts to do his job notices some irregularities with a certain high ranking general. This forces Chaol to make some decisions of his own, how long can a good honourable man serve a tyrant like the King of Aldarlan and his many atrocities.

Dorian is more alone then he has ever been, but he does manage to find solace. Finding company is not really difficult for a handsome prince, but who can he trust. This is triply difficult as he has to not only keep his own actives which his father will not approve of secret, his friends secrets, and most of all his magic.

We are also introduced the Iron Teeth Witch Clans and especially Manon Blackbeak. Meanwhile Celaena detours from her mission and pursues her own agenda. Meeting forgotten and powerful relatives. Before she is allowed to get the answers she wants she must claim her heritage (her powers). She must learn to control them and master them all the while putting he shattered life and her past. I really like the way she has to train and relearn everything. Just because you are in a stronger body does not mean you can control it especially in a fight situation.

By Steve Benner TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 17 Oct 2014
Format: Paperback
After a mediocre start to this series with "Throne of Glass", Sarah J. Maas has managed to build on the improvements delivered in "Crown of Midnight", with a very solid continuation of the tale in this third part of the saga, "Heir of Fire". The greater complexities to the storyline which were hinted at in the earlier volume are now much more fully exposed and developed, with the slowness of the earlier parts now fully revealed as but the beginning a long-form narrative piece that clearly still has some distance to run.

Additionally, the writing and the drama have both tightened up considerably in this volume, the author having now very much matured in her story-telling skills, especially with regard to timing and tension. This latest volume has a more complex story line than either of the earlier books, with the author here splitting the action between some four or five story strands. The emphasis has also moved away from the teen romance elements of the earlier books, focusing instead much more on drama and action. Those who liked the romance aspect of the earlier volumes need not worry however, as it has not been dropped entirely.

Sadly, the subject matter and the ideas remain every bit as derivative as the earlier books, with absolutely nothing new being brought to the fantasy canon here. That said, the author has at least developed a credible and consist synthesis of well established fantasy elements and lovers of the genre should be more than happy with the result -- there is nothing that leaps of the page as being wrong and much that is very right indeed.

By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 9 Oct 2014
Format: Paperback
I have loved this series since the beginning but it really is amazing to see how far Celaena has come since we first met her. The end of Crown of Midnight saw her leaving everyone she's come to care about behind in Adarlan as she set sail for Wendlyn hoping to learn more about her fae heritage and hopefully find some new allies to help her fight against the king of Adarlan. The Celaena we see at the beginning of this book is a shadow of herself, she is depressed, alone and scared of what the future holds. She doesn't know how to find the fae queen who may hold the key to the upcoming battle and she is losing hope that she can win this war. After everything that happened she is grieving for Nehemia and she misses Chaol more than she can even put into words.

When Celaena meets Rowan, a soldier working for the fae queen, she has lost all confidence in her abilities but the only way to get the help she needs is by convincing Rowan that she is worthy. Rowan doesn't take it easy on her but he does start teaching her how to use her fae powers. I loved the friendship that slowly develops between Celaena and Rowan, they have both been though things that should have destroyed them but they are survivors and their drive for revenge burns deeply. They may not like each other much, especially in the beginning, but they understand each other and working together brings out the best of both of them. I loved Rowan's character, he is so hard on Celaena and very closed off emotionally but he is definitely a guy of honour and I enjoyed seeing him and Celaena together. I have to say I'm still on team Chaol though so I really hope we don't see this developing into a new love triangle in the next book!
