Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas
Series: Throne of Glass Series #5
Published: September 6, 2017
I absolutely loved this book. While Heir of Fire remains my favorite book in the Throne of Glass series, Empire of Storms very easily overtook Queen of Shadows for the number two spot. This book is looongggg in an absolutely wonderful way. Maas always has excellent character development, and this book does not disappoint in that aspect. She also is the master of introducing new people and power couples.
The end absolutely destroyed me, and I cannot wait for the next one in the series. It is a bit of a cliff hanger, however it is well worth it on the tear-jerker scale. I am not lying when I tell you I have been unable to really focus on any other book for the past week because of how thoroughly Empire of Storms destroyed me. This series is my all-time favorite, and I would definitely recommend to anyone considering reading it.
I was also fortunate enough to be able to get both the Barnes and Noble, and Target edition which both had wonderful fan art by the awesome artist PhantomRin!
I apologize in advance if this section is more of a rant of feelings than actual coherent speech. I will attempt to make this brief
Elide and Lorcan as a couple are one of my new favorites in the series. I just absolutely love how they fight and challenge each other, and Elide’s healing process as well as Lorcan’s softening literally gave me life, as they both developed and evolved so much throughout the book.
I totally did not see the Lysandra twist at the end coming! Perhaps that makes me a little dense because they did mention like twice that the shifters are feared because of their abilities to imitate important people. I was SOBBING when Maeve came and took Aelin. Legitimately was incoherent for a good two hours. And oh my goodness, Rowan being so heartbroken and destroyed! My poor little baby hawk. I don’t know how I am supposed to wait a year for the next book D: I suppose that is what ACOTAR 3 is for!
If you enjoy the Throne of Glass series as much as I do , you might like some of my bookish bracelets. Here are a few that I have made inspired by Throne of Glass!
