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! ...

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.Read more ›
This book is non stop pretty much from the beginning and with the introduction of new characters such as Rowan Whitethorn (oh wow I could dream of him forever!), Aedion Ashryver and Manon Blackbeak along with Wyverns, Fae, Skinwalkers and other dark entity's (who's true identities and intentions become clear later on) the story has expanded and become impossibly more engrossing than it was and I have literally been gripped from start to finish. I have read some pretty amazing books so far this year but I think this is now the top runner for being my favourite of the year. I can't recommend this book and series enough.
First two books spoilers follow:-
Celaena or rather Aelin as we found out in the previous books has gone to Wendyln on the King of Adarlan's behest to kill Prince Galan Ashryver.Read more ›
We're building towards the big battle that the reader has always known Celaena must face, even if there were points she didn't know it herself, but what I really love about this book is how much it didn't feel like a prelude to action. What is so refreshing about this series is the clear forethought - the tale is well thought out and I've loved the inclusion of several more prominent and dimensional figures such as Aedion and Rowan, characters who definitely add and not detract from the main narrative thread.
One of my major bugbears with these type of books is what comes with walking the line between YA and normal fantasy - promising works fall to cliches and quite forseeable conclusions. This series does manage to avoid the majority of this and 'Heir of Fire' clearly departs into a more well-rounded novel in its own right. There is plenty intrigue hanging over the sides of each weaved story to keep me eagerly awaiting the fourth (and final?) book in the series. September can't come soon enough where this is concerned!
