I should reread this series every year, because this book is absolute YA fantasy perfection. I was rendered useless today by the need to read this book straight through, despite the fact that I’ve read it before. It’s still fresh and surprising, and I love watching these characters grow and come into their own. And I seriously need a wyvern. It’s so unfair that I can’t have one.

PREVIOUS REVIEW:
This is brilliant. My brain almost exploded while reading.

I am totally in love with this dangerous fantasy world, and I want nothing more than to live inside it with all the incredible, unique, and deadly characters. Every book is better than the last. I actually hope this series never ends. It’s not possible that I will ever get enough of it.

This is book four, so make sure you start with book one: Throne of Glass. Also, the novellas are fantastic and can be read as a complete set before you start book one, if you want. I recommend that, because they provide excellent background information.

Holy. Wyverns. Let’s do that again!

Book 3 is where I stopped enjoying this world and started to become absolutely, completely, hopelessly, and irrevocably obsessed with it.

Sarah J. Maas really digs hard into the magical world and structure in this one, and it’s like someone breaking out 30 ice cream sundae toppings, when you expected four.

Three of my favorite characters/creatures arrive in this series (Rowan, Abraxos, and Manon), which makes it so compelling I almost want to read it again right now, only I can’t, as I’m now desperate to reread book 4. Because, holy wyverns, that ending. I now remember the suffering of waiting a whole year for book four and am so glad I don’t have to repeat that part again.

It should be noted that all the Audible books for this series are fantastic, and Elizabeth Evans is an excellent narrator. She brings expression to the story, without getting in the way of the beautiful language and statements. It’s subtle and perfect. I could listen to her read all day.

Sarah J. Maas is a literary beast, and I adore her. She claws these magical worlds out of chaos and serves them up still dripping in blood and angst. She holds nothing back and always progresses the story, with every scene and new character or creature.

I loved revisiting Chaol in this story, as so much happens after this point with his character, both good and bad. I was initially worried about reading TOWER OF DAWN (book 6), but I ended up absolutely loving it, which makes me extremely happy to be revisiting these novels again and remembering the early days of Chaol.

I still stand behind my original assessment that every book in this series is better than the one that came before, so make sure you have book 3 on hand by the time you finish book 2.

SOOOOoooooooo deliriously happy to be revisiting this outstanding world, and my favorite part is that even though I enjoy book one, I know every single book after this gets better and better and better. This is the kind of YA fantasy series that I can get behind and reread often.

 

I absolutely loved revisiting these characters where they started. The magic is minimal in book one, so I can’t wait to watch that develop again in the later books. Everyone who knows me IRL should just not bother talking to me for the next 15 days, as I probably won’t hear anything you say.

Also, I listened to the audiobook this time around, and it’s excellent. Go fetch it on Audible. Elizabeth Evans narrates them all, and she’s fantastic!
