Publisher's Summary

In the next installment of the New York Times best-selling Throne of Glass series, follow Chaol on his sweeping journey to a distant empire.
Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the king of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.
His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica - the stronghold of the southern continent's mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.
But what they discover in Antica will change them both - and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.

What's Chaol been up to?

First of all, I adore this book series. Right from the beginning. Having said that: Chaol is not my favorite character by any means. He's blindly loyal, broods too much, and has made some really bad decisions...which is exactly why we needed this book. I want to go right back to where we left Aelin, but the fact is that this book tied several pieces of information together. We learned so much new information as well, and Chaol got a lot of personal redemption. He's still not my favorite character, but I really like Yrene. We got a ton of character development out of Nezrin, which was needed.
In the end, this will not be anyone's favorite book of the series, but it is a necessary part of the whole.

Okay, I don't care if you hate Chaol. READ THIS.

So the whole world is falling to pieces and with Chaol in Antica, it seems like nothing will go right. And it doesn't. Sarah has done it again, and I love this book to the end of the earth.

Amazing performance makes up for it

Elizabeth Evans is one of my favourite audio narrators, and she really brings this whole series alive- and I think without these audio books I would've stopped reading this series by now.

I was worried to pick up this book as it focuses on Chaol (my personal least favourite character) and a bunch of new and side characters. I enjoyed it better than expected, but can't say I've grown fond of any of these characters despite spending 600+ pages / 20+ hours with them. The plot felt streamlined, a few important details and twists but otherwise a rather by the numbers Sarah J Maas book. All the character relations and developments were predictable, and she has so many characters that a lot of their personalities are starting to overlap and show troupes within her own books. With audio, and all the brothers and sisters with unusual fantasy names, it took a long time to learn characters names, or to even recognise who was who- I got through that mostly via context until near the end of the novel.

The best part of this book was Choals recovery process. I was worried how that would be handled, and I've heard mixed things about the representation (but mostly good things from own voices reviews that I saw browsing goodreads before I picked this up). I had one or two issues with it, but overall thought it was done well and was satisfied with how he ended up.

Overall, amazing narrator, entertaining, but nothing outstanding compared so some of Maas's other novels.

Maas' best so far!

it started slow, but got interesting pretty quickly, as character relationships develop and unfurl... then it finishes strong bringing together Throne Of Glass' last novel and the next one to come, all together. It's intricate and intelligent, great read!
-this from someone who didn't find Lord Chaol Westfall very interesting and couldn't fathom how the story could be filled out and enjoyable... you showed me Miss. Mass!!!
