Summary: Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy. While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love? -goodreadsAgain. Sarah J. Maas has done it again. The third book in the Throne of Glass series and my love burns strong. It's almost visceral now: read the book, love the book, wait impatiently for the next. But this time you can't just love the book because oh the pain. I know some people who weren't that intrigued with the first claiming it was too fluffyromancelovevomit. I wish it was like that now. This book devitalized my heart.
The title of this book: Heir of Fire, seems to be the hidden symbol for my adoration for all the characters in this series, for the plot, the plot-twists; everything: it burns like a fire and does not reduce to ashes, no matter how long the wait until the next book and my next installment of kindling - if anything, it powers higher and brighter.
Heir of Fire blew me away. It is as simple as that, and what I cherish about this series is that each book gets bigger and is filled with more information regarding the story-line to satisfy my cravings and more characters to love and hate. But it never gets too complicated. And I have another favourite character.
What can't Sarah J. Maas do? Because she has managed to find ample firewood for the love that blazes inside me, she has left enough plot twists to have me startle like a rabbit confronted by headlights on a dark night, she has reduced both Caleana and I to grains. of sand: once we were both castles, now - we have vanished into dust. We? Yes we, because when you read this series you will no longer be yourself, you will be within the story: caught up in iron teeth and nets and burning. And you won't want to escape. So I repeat myself, what can Sarah J Maas not do?
Platters of food go to the lovely Bloomsbury team for kindly sending me this book for review, and to reduce my life to desolation. How kind. *clutches chest*
