Review: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
Title: Heir of Fire
Author: Sarah J. Maas
(Finished copy sent to me for review)
*Synopsis from back of back*
Consumed by guilt and rage, Celaena can't bring herself to spill blood for the King of Adarlan. She must fight back...
The Immortal Queen will help her destroy the king - for a price. But as Celaena battles with her darkest memories and her heart breaks for a love that could never last, can she fulfil the bargain and head the almighty court of Terrasen? And who will stand with her?
So, absolutely amazing. I loved the introduction of Wendlyn in this instalment, the new characters are great and the pace of the book is great.
I couldn't stand either of Chaol and Dorian prior to this volume. I thought they were both bad matches for Celaena and were very pompous. However, I warmed to them in Heir of Fire, mainly Dorian. He was so sweet with Sorscha (all the feels with that.) What I adored was Rowan and Celeana's relationship. Flawless. I think they are a far better match. He is as strong willed, fiercely protective and a kick-ass fighter. That is why this is my favourite book in the Throne of Glass series so far.
I love Manon too. I have a theory that she is going to end up helping Celaena on her quest, there seems to be some doubt forming in her mind as to what she is and what the King wants her to do as Wing Leader. Interested to see how that pans out.
Omg. Just go read it.
