This book reeled me in right from the start. Sarah J. Maas has upped everything about this story. It’s incredible! Her books just keep soaring to new heights of amazing storytelling. The world building continues to be awesome! I love how the story branches out to these two new places. Let’s start with Celeana’s story, shall we? Her storyline is my favorite (but that’s mostly because I’m obsessed with Celeana). Her character development in this book is so incredible. Let me repeat that, so amazingly incredible. I can’t even describe how much character development she goes through. Ugh! So amazing. A part of that character development is her relationship with Ronan. I love that guy. Nowadays, you don’t see a lot of deep complex and meaningful platonic relationships. That’s exactly what these two have and it couldn’t be more perfect! One of the best platonic relationships I’ve read in a long time! Then we have Dorian. Poor Dorian. The guy is just trying to survive, suppress his magic, and be happy. He can’t seem to catch a break. I enjoyed learning more about how magic works. He has a smaller-ish role in this one, but he’s being set up to be a powerhouse very soon. The next book is gonna’ be pretty friken intense for Dorian. At points, I wanted to slap Chaol during this book. His big struggle is whether to be loyal to Dorian or Celeana. It takes him so long to realize that they’re on the same side. A lot of that mentality comes from the way hd was raised, but it’s still frustrating. What I really liked about Chaol’s part was the introduction to Aideon. He is another great character to add to this mix. His devotion to his cousin is precious! I can see all the players of Celeana’s court coming together. She’s gonna’ have a pretty intense court, if you ask me. Just don’t kill anyone off, Sarah J. Maas! The other new plotline we get is Manon’s. I really enjoyed getting to understand the politics of the witch covens. What’s so interesting about the witches is that they’re supposedly born evil, but we get Manon who’s got some shades of humanity rising inside of her. I really liked how when all the witches pick their wyverns, Manon doesn’t pick the biggest meanest one (like she should, since she’s the head of her clan). Instead she picks the small beat up underdog (or underwyvern…). I can’t wait to see how Manon’s story mixes in with the rest of the crew. I can picture it now. The majority of the scary evil witches will side with the king, but I have a feeling Manon is gonna’ switch over to Celeana’s side at some point, taking with her the other thirteen members in her clan. Sarah J. Maas continued to build upon this incredible world. I’m excited to see where it goes (and really afraid for Dorian). The next book is the series is currently being written and I cannot wait for its release. It’s now officially my most anticipated book release (although it’s gonna’ be at least a year…) Basically Sarah J. Maas has turned her story and her writing into a powerhouse in the fantasy genre. I could not have loved this book any more than I did. Can't wait to see where she takes it next!show more

�?�¢??Because I am lost," she whispered onto the earth. "And I do not know the way.�?�¢?? All marked spoilers are only from CoM. Heir of Fire is one of the best books I've read all year. It was action packed, heart wrenching, and beautifully written. I cannot even begin to describe how much this series has grown since Throne of Glass. The thing that's different about this book from the first two is that it's divided into three points of view. First being Celaena's story as she is trying to recover from her devastating heartbreak after Crown of Midnight. Celaena is truly my favorite female protagonist of all time. And I am not exaggerating that. Though she constantly blames herself for the deaths of her loved ones she is trying to "not let that light go out". In doing so, she begins to rise out of her pain, and own up to becoming a queen. The second point of view follows Dorian and Chaol's story back in the Glass Castle. Chaol now is trying to deal with the fall out of learning that Celaena is the lost Queen of Terrasen, making her his biggest enemy. And we follow Dorian as he deals with his terrifying magical abilities. This story line always made me feel very paranoid because any little damn thing that the characters could do could plunge the castle into hell. And by the end... I mean dear God... I was absolutely shocked and destroyed. It was so good. And our final point of view follows Manon (muh-non) Blackbeak of the Blackbeak Witch Coven. And while most people thought these chapters were uninteresting, I adored them to death. They were action packed and interesting. Learning about the life of the Witches was so enticing to see through the eyes of the savage and horrifically aggressive Manon. The basic plot is that we follow the Witch Covens join the King of Adarlan's army by giving them dragon mounts called wyverns. The Witches grow attached to their Wyverns and we realize how much of a threat an army of savage airborne witches will be to our main cast of character. Not to mention that there are ton of new characters that are truly amazing and I loved them all, especially the deranged Manon. I'm not going to tell you more about these characters because I want you to meet them for yourselves in this AMAZING BOOK. Heir of Fire is the best book in the Throne of Glass series and I cannot even begin to tell you how incredibly painful the wait is for the next book. �?�¢??I wish you to become who you �??�?�­were born to be. To become queen.�?�¢??show more

I wanted to read Heir of Fire because I really enjoyed the first two and really wanted to know what would happen with Celaena next. I love her with Chaol, but I also liked the scenes with her and Dorian so I am a bit torn there. I miss Nehemiah right along with C and am very wary of her chasing revenge and what that will take her into. We meet some new characters in this one as well as getting a different look at some old faves. I don't remember the last books being 3rd POV but it works for this one because of how it is tying so many things together. Although we don't stay exclusively with C in this one, I tolerated the other views because it gave me insight into what is going on with Chaol and Dorian while she is off. Even though I skimmed a recap on Recaptains, I was still a bit lost. There was some really good and naturally incorporated recap in the first part, but I am just a little scatterbrained (okay, you got me, its a LOT) so I have a hard time with recall. It did effect my reading experience a bit for the first 10% or so and then I just kinda forgot or filled in pieces enough to really be immersed into the story. I admit though the witch POV in this one wasn't exactly my thing, but I did come to like her especially when the Abraxos wyvern plot came into play. Rowan. Wow, Rowan. He infuriated me at first, just as he did Celeana who others call Aelin because of the whopper that was the end of Crown. But as the layers came back some while he was working with her, I came to like him more and more. There was some chemistry at times between them I though and then other times it was more like brother sister bickering but also the connection. So, speaking of this... I think that Dorian is out of the picture based on the ending of last book, and I am totally not sure about her and Chaol because of the ending of Crown again, but as much as she thought of him, I would say that he's still in the running. So it is a love square, or I guess a triangle again, since we're not sure about Rowan if he's more of a bro or possible love interest. I hope that this is solved, but another part is kind of savoring the build up. A lot happened in this one, throwing more monkey wrenches into the plot but other things are starting to come together. Though I know this is only the third book out of 6 possibly 7, so that would account for some of the moving parts that are setting up instead of giving us revelation or answers just yet. And holy explosive ending. So much happened, some of which left my mouth dropped to the floor and other that made me want to cheer because of the character growth and how they started to stand up for themselves, or begin to see the light about certain events and their responsibilities. I will be continuing this series and can't wait to read more. Hopefully with a bit more recap next time, lol. Bottom Line: A bit harder in beginning to get into, but fell for Celeana plus other characters again.show more
