I pre-ordered this book as soon as it was available, I love the series and this book is just as good. I stared reading at midnight when it came out on kindle and haven't stopped accept for a few hours unavoidable sleep.
The series may have began with one main character but now we have many to chose from. Man on and Elide , who doesn't love strong women.

I honestly don’t even know where to start with this review. I’m still reeling after finishing EoS and now I have to wait a year for the next instalment. I hate myself for reading this so quickly, less than 2 days, and I’m just sitting here like “CURSE YOU SJM”.

Once again Sarah J. Maas proves why she’s a force to be reckoned with in young adult fantasy, though there’s so much sex in this that it’s not exactly YA anymore (this isn’t a spoiler there’s a bloody warning on the back of it, even ACOMAF doesn’t have a warning on the back of it.)

One thing I wanted to talk about was how a week or so ago a bunch of people found some spoilers and were absolutely fizzing about it on twitter and how “omg Chaol isn’t in the book, Sarah hates him, first she makes him disabled now he’s not even in it, she’s trash” etc etc etc. I love how they were saying all that nonsense without even reading the bloody book. Chaol isn’t in the book but that doesn’t mean Celaena doesn’t think about him, it doesn’t mean that Dorian isn’t missing him. He’s mentioned a fair amount and come on, he’s in another country getting healed after all the crap that happened to him in QoS.

So if you’re a regular reader of fantasy fiction you’ll be aware that periods aren’t something that’s spoken about. Women just continue on as if they don’t bleed every month, they can go on very long quests and have no mention of bleeding or pain or anything. THIS HAS PERIODS IN IT. Well, one, but it was an important part of the book, because the character hadn’t had one for a while due to being malnourished she had to go to a town to get supplies for it leading to some action happening.

Okay, I feel like I've waited an appropriate amount of time to openly discuss spoilers because if there's a book that ever needed to be discussed in depth it's Empire of Storms.

A lot of people didn't like this book but honestly, it's a continuation of them not liking a certain pairing no longer being together. If I'm entirely honest, with the whole Dorian/Chaol thing, I just rolled with the punches then wasn't upset when it seemed to go more in Chaol's way. With Aelin and Rowan, I'm not mad/upset about it, nor do I have any real issue with it, but I don't really ship it. Idk why, cos obviously I want Aelin to be happy and I'm happy she's happy but only as a passive reader. It's a weird disconnect for me as I would say 90% of the time, I like what the writer thinks is best, unlike some of the comments on books, I realise the writer has thought through every decision and sometimes we don't know why until later.

First off: how on earth was this ever going to be 3 books? Would all the same events have happened?! I remember reading Heir of Fire and being annoyed because it partially felt like a filler book but it has so much background and plot and lays the groundwork for everything that has occurred in the past two books. Empire of Storms was a gift. A gift that kept me up until 7am and ruined my sleeping pattern for a week, and I was grateful. Grateful that I had had the pleasure to read a book that absolutely gutted me and had me ready for the next book before I'd even read the last sentence.

The best thing about this series is that with every book there's so much I want from the next book and Sarah always delivers, exceeds expectations and then gives me what I didn't know I needed.

This is a great well written Saga from the beginning.
Sarah J. Maas won't stop surprising you with an intelligent and well built plot that is never banal.
I find all the characters fascinating, bad ones included.
Aelin is a funny protagonist, lovable and annoying at the same time. I like the way the author spends times describing well the other protagonists and their stories too. Nothing is obvious. Whenever I read her books, I end up reading until 4 in the morning and horribly tired the day after! She knows how to keep you awake. Looking forward to the next book. Hope I don't have to wait a year for that! I felt miserable when I finished it, I need more of it.

Aelin is such a badass. I mean, let's be honest, she's kind of irritating sometimes - she's a bit cocky, a bit too pretty and bit luckier than the average girl when it comes to meeting, and bedding, handsome men. Well, maybe I'm just jealous. But an abundance of Wyverns, kick-ass Manon moments, some cute scenes from the really likeable Elide and some massive, and I mean massive, unexpected forks in the road more than make up for her failings.

I actually didn't realise this was a 6 part story, I thought this was going to be the last book, and because of that it means that this book is basically putting all the characters in the right position for the final attack. So not a great deal of progression happens in terms of fighting off the bad guys, but there is still copious amounts of nasty, gore infested battles (and sneaky Wyverns ripping nasty creatures apart) and some really big plot twists which finally give us the answers to what Elena is up to with her helpful (but mostly cryptic nonsense) clues. I'm glad to finally be on the same page as Aelin - I feel like she's been one step ahead of me figuring this whole situation out much faster than I ever could!

This is action packed, which I love. But there are still elements of romance, some of which (whilst expected) were more exciting to read about than others. Am I the only one waiting for Lorcan and Elide to stop playing it cool? But you know what, I much prefer the "will-they-won't-they" romances which actually are more realistic than the sickeningly sweet love between Aelin and the ever-nibbling Rowan. Too much biting guys, it's not cute.

The secondary characters come more to the forefront in this fifth novel and I felt genuinely invested in all of them.
