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?
This book, people. Actually, forget the book. This SERIES is awesome. I don't want to spoil it for any of you so I'll keep this review short. If you want an even shorter version of this, I wrote an "Early Cuddles" post for Cuddlebuggery. You can read it here.
This book starts off with a bang. After we find out Celaena's true identity in Crown of Midnight, I was left a little unsure as to where this series was going. I can officially say that all those doubts were put to rest pretty early on into Heir of Fire. This book is fun, extravagant, and ridiculously addicting. You know a book is good when you want something longer than 565 pages.
There are new characters galore. The beauty of this series is that you get to read multiple points of views, making it so easy to get to know old and new characters alike. The story never gets stuck in one place. Instead, it travels from character to character and this opens up the world in such a magnificent way. And let's not forget the fairy aspect of this series. The Fae are pretty fantastic, especially one in particular *cough* Rowan *cough*. Also, get ready for the craziest ending yet. You've been warned.
For me, Heir of Fire falls somewhere between the first and the second book. It isn't a secret that I didn't love Throne of Glass. In fact, I almost didn't read Crown of Midnight. I only read it because I kept hearing how amazing it was and guess what? Everyone was right. I've said it before and I'll say it again: don't give up on this series! Please read the second one before you make a decision. I would've missed out on an amazing second and third book otherwise. In all honesty, Sarah J. Maas is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors and I cannot wait to continue on with this series!
Since Bloomsbury was kind enough to send me an ARC of Heir of Fire, I want to return the favor and give it to one of you! Due to the fact that this is the biggest ARC in the world, I have to make this giveaway US only. Sorry!
