Heir of Fire
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy.

While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?

This third novel in the Throne of Glass sequence, from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, is packed with more heart-stopping action, devastating drama and swoonsome romance, and introduces some fierce new heroines to love and hate.

I apologise in advance to everyone who is a fan of this series, but I’m afraid I’ve had enough.

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Crown of Midnight, I found it quite dull and didn’t enjoy it the way I enjoyed throne of glass. But I had high hopes that ‘Heir of Fire’ would be different. Unfortunately it wasn’t.
I found this book so slow, and so dull, and my brain just wouldn’t keep up with what was going on, I think I was just too bored to take it in.
I know other people like this series, and I’m glad that they enjoy it. I’d bet that most people will enjoy this one too, but for me, no. I just didn’t enjoy this one at all, and I think I’ll be stopping reading the series here too.
Overall; not for me,
3 out of 10.

  1. I liked this one more than you did, but I agree that it moved from the light fantasy of the prior books to a more epic/high fantasy style, which probably isn't to everyone's taste. I found the first part of the book a little slow at times but the ending was fantastic!
