Celaena has survived deadly contests and shattering heartbreak―but at an unspeakable cost. Now, she must travel to a new land to confront her darkest truth . . . a truth about her heritage that could change her life―and her future―forever. Meanwhile, brutal and monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, intent on enslaving her world. Will Celaena find the strength to not only fight her inner demons, but to take on the evil that is about to be unleashed?
The bestselling series that has captured readers all over the world reaches new heights in this sequel to the New York Times best-selling Crown of Midnight. Packed with heart-pounding action, fierce new characters, and swoon-worthy romance, this third book will enthrall readers from start to finish.
I was so close to mark this book as did not finish for the last 200 pages or so. Everything just felt so draggy and it was tremendously slow. I feel like nothing interesting much happened apart from Aelin who has managed to hone her powers and control it better.
First it was Dorian, then it was Chaol and now even Rowan? Why are there just so many guys involved around Aelin’s life? And they are all mostly romantically involved. Please be wary that this is my mere opinion but I do find that it would be nicer if she could just stick with one man to hold him tight and never let go.
In terms of the story flow, I was pretty much bored out of my mind. The book was so long and I couldn’t get into the story most of the time even though I wanted to so much. I was more than ready to move on from this part of the story and find out about the next of Aelin/Celeana’s journey.
