But she's at last returned to the empire-for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past... She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight. She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die just to see her again. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen's triumphant return. Celaena's epic journey has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions across the globe. This fourth volume will hold readers rapt as Celaena's story builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.

Review quote

"Character motivations and interactions. . . are always nuanced and on point, especially as Aelin's growing maturity offers her new perspectives on old acquaintances. . . Impossible to put down." --Kirkus Reviews "Fans of the high-fantasy series likely won't mind the protracted story at all, packed as it is with brooding glances, simmering sexual tension, twisty plot turns, lush world building, and snarky banter. . . The final chapters of this installment promise more epic adventures and badder bad guys to defeat in forthcoming volumes." --Booklist "Praise for the New York Times bestselling series" --: "Heir of Fire" --: "A USA Today bestseller" --: "I was afraid to put the book down!" --New York Times bestselling author Tamora Pierce "Readers will devour Maas's latest entry...A must-purchase." --School Library Journal "Tension snowballs into devastating twists and an absolutely riveting ending... Will leave readers ravenous for more." --Kirkus Reviews "Crown of Midnight" --: "A New York Times and USA Today bestseller" --: "An epic fantasy readers will immerse themselves in and never want to leave." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Series fans will be satisfied not only by the intricate plot, dishy romance, and rich world building but they will be thrilled by the prospect of deepening adventures in the next volume." --Booklist "Throne of Glass" --: "A Kirkus Best Teen Book of 2012, Amazon.com Best Book of 2012, YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults, and MTV Hollywood Crush Best YA Book of 2012 Nominee" --: "A thrilling read." --Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review "A must-read for lovers of epic fantasy and fairy tales." --USA Today "A welcome breath of fresh air to the oft-neglected epic fantasy field." --Tor.com "Fans of Tamora Pierce and George R.R. Martin, pick up this book!" --RT Book Reviews
