ALL SPOILERS ARE HIDDEN.Update from a reread this story was way powerful the second time through once I knew where it was going All the subtle lines about time just broke my heart.This series means SO much to me, but that doesn t mean I m going to blindly love it or treat it any differently than other book I review I really enjoyed the story, but still thought I was only going to give it 4 stars until the ending the exclusive short stories changed everythinggggg.First off, I would absolutely re [...]
Where do you think you re going Darrow demanded.She looked over her shoulder To call in old debts and promises To raise an army of assassins and thieves and exiles and commoners To finish what was started long, long ago 3 1 2 stars Much better than Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows, methinks But maybe not if you re unable to skim over the gross love scenes between Aelin and Rowan, or you just can t deal with a book where Chaol is completely absent.I have to say, though, I think Empire of Storms [...]
Here are my reviews of the previous books in this series Throne of GlassCrown of MidnightThe Assassin s BladeHeir of FireQueen of ShadowsThese two girls said it all Simona s review , Paige s video sigh I m not sure where to start I ve pretty much loved all the previous books in this series but aghhh this one Welcome to Empire of Storms, the try not to cringe challenge book edition The first thing that you notice while reading Empire of Storms is the similarities it has with ACOMAF I think that i [...]
My name is Aelin Ashryver GalathyniusAnd I will not be afraid Someone willing to talk This book destroyed me and I think I need therapy to endure the wait and pain until next year.Edit So, I ll need to wait another year to know what happens next Not fair Sarah J Maas, not fair I know there s another book coming but really, I just don t care much for Chaol at the time Why did I read Queen Of Shadows so fast Dammit, this happens every damn year.I read the damn book way too fast and I don t think a [...]
Brilliance Sheer, pure brilliance This is what this book is Everything I wanted and everything I didn t know I wanted It s a whirlwind of emotions Quite probably, the best in the series Full review to come.
I ll have a full video review discussing my thoughts soon.
I DEVOURED THIS AS I DEVOUR ALL OF SARAH J MAAS S BOOK ENJOYING EVERY SECOND I love the characters in this seris so much Here s my booktalk youtube watch v W9tnt
MORE WYVERNS AND BATHTUB SCENES, PLEASE.
Do I need to remind you to be civil No, I don t Good kids.This is the story of how Sarah J Maas reviewed her own poetics in one of her books You will hate any moment of peace or happiness Because rest assured they ll use every single one of them to have sex or to seduce someone into having sex, and sometimes not even imminent danger will be enough of a deterrent Sadly A massacre or two would have spiced things up Dorian offered a lazy grin in return Believe it or not, this ship has an unnatural [...]
The world will be saved and remade by the dreamers It was unexpectedly relieving to slip back into this world Initially, I was dreading this sequel because there was just so much that could go completely wrong, but Sarah J Maas seriously knows her stuff She handled the situations she put my favorite witches through with excellence.This review contains spoilers.Right from the start, we get to hear from Elena Galathynius, which, finally She s one of my favorites from this series and getting to rea [...]
Review to come
I flew through this and had a blast while reading, but after finishing I started to focus on the problems I had with it I did still enjoy it overall, but it s not my fave in the series Tone and content wise it just felt very different from the previous books I m still invested in the series though, and I can t wait to see how this all wraps up in the final installment I talk about this book both spoiler free and a spoiler section in this video youtube watch v gmRwb
1.5 starsHere s a compilation of my live Snapchat updates Some jumbled thoughts I don t care about any of the characters that I m supposed to care about any The longer you spend with SJM s characters, the it seems like she s completely incapable of keeping character s consistent or giving them realistic development Not caring about these characters has a significant impact on one s ability to enjoy this book, as so much of it hinges on characters and their relationships with one another The plo [...]
But Aelin had promised herself, months and months ago, that she would not pretend to be anything but what she was She had crawled through darkness and blood and despair she had survived This series doesn t mean a lot to me, not like a lot of my other friends, not like some people out there that consider it one of their favorite series no matter what happens But I do consider Sarah J Maas a phenomenal author and even though she isn t one of my favorites, I don t think I would miss out on a new se [...]
best book ever.i need to breathen you please message me if you have read thisi need to talk about it
All Hail Queen Maas I may hate her right now, I may be cursing her name and shaking and screaming, but deep down I love her with an unprecedented reverence She can t be human, no, she is a terrible, brilliant and cruel deity that messes with us mortals For the past 48 hours I ve been fighting and bleeding in Erilea Now, I m in a daze Powerful gusts of wind scattered my mind Bright fire reduced my sanity to cinders And icicles have pierced my heart Because this book, because Empire of Storms, was [...]

Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen, knew the time would soon come to prove just how much she d bleed for Erilea Had to give myself some time after reading this epic book, to gather my thoughts, and pull myself off the floor I think I ve had some time to get it together and am finally ready to right a review for this book We re pretty deep into the Throne of Glass Series so writing reviews for it are getting harder and harder It s getting harder to talk about events going on and where are chara [...]
After re reading a few parts I cannot help but rate it lower Well, maybe it ll be one of those books that I rate lower and lower with every time I re read some parts and revise them in my head Oh, SJM, you could have done it so much better Why Pity.I will start with the flaws.Well, the mature content that reminded me a bit of fanfictions from AO3, not because it was horrible, but because it was given too many pages and written in an over the top manner That said, I am generally not fond of sex s [...]
I SWEARSARAH JASIS GOD S GIFT TO EARTHIS BOOK IS A MODERN MASTERPIECE.
Full spoiler free review youtube watch v qr moI FINALLY GODS DAMNED DID ITIt was long and it was difficult but it was worth it I have the hardest time getting through Sarah J Maas books because they re so long and there s so much going on, so I complain A TON as I m reading it, but I always end up loving it in the end.
Reread April May 2017WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF.Honestly, I m terrified for Tower of Dawn because, hell, if it all went to crap at the end of Empire of Storms, what on earth are Chaol and Nesryn dealing with in the Southern continents I am dying to find out, but also too scared Hulp.I shall go mourn my babies now After reading I am dead.Basically, Maas is the reason I have trust issues when it comes to book She is too skilled at ripping my heart out of my chest, beating it up, cutting it to piec [...]
Re Read on Audio Okay, so I found another hardback copy with the poster on the inside of the dust jacket so dad took it over and got it laminated for me and it s on my shelf now Yes, I m crazy Did anyone else get the Barnes Noble edition with he beautiful cover art on the inside front pages and the inside back pages They are beautiful THIS BOOK IS FREAKING EPIC AND I LOVED IT AND I LOVE ALL OF EVERYONE IN THE BOOK AND I LOVE ROWAN AND ETC AND SO FORTH THERE WILL BE NO SPOILERS The revelations th [...]
e lezbehonest, guys, that s basically the premise of this book Though that sentence is pretty bloody ironic considering this, and Maas s other series A Court of Thorns and Roses, are pretty much the most hetero books I ve ever read I think sometimes people misunderstand the meaning of this statement It s so hetero There are a couple of very small, have to squint to see them, barely there queer characters in this, two of whom we met for about two pages in Heir of Fire, another who has about three [...]
4.5 StarsI want to cry my eyes out, throw this book across the room, and hug Maas This was nuts MILD SPOILERS BELOW nothing big I am completely wrecked but in the best possible way This book was astounding so many amazing moments I do have complaints that I ll explain out below cough, mush scenes but overall, this series is one hell of an emotional rollercoaster and that most definitely continues here By the way I ve decided this book is basically what were to happen if the Avenger and LOTR had [...]
I did it I got my hands on an early release of Empire of Storms and binge read it however painful that was.And oh my gracious god what did I just read.Look, if I wanted fanfic I d go to archiveofourown, not go and buy one in a bookstore Honestly I d also get better quality on ao3 than I got in this book.Queen of Shadows was a bit of a disappointment but thisThis was painful to read, this is an insult to the genre.This is blasphemy view spoiler Look fanfic is the best way to describe this.Rowan a [...]

DNF at 60% One star for Manon Blackbeak.Welp I tried Full review to come.____________________________________________ Edit So my opinion on this series has changed after re reading QoS, so I don t exactly consider myself a ToG fan any, but I still stand by what I said in this review Edit I feel like I should clarify that I am not talking about sassy or sarcastic reviews, because I have written a few myself, and I find those reviews absolutely hilarious, regardless of if I liked the book or not I [...]

Wow Just wow.I ll be filming a full video review for this so I ll keep my thoughts here brief I didn t have high expectations going into this because, as this series has gone on, I ve increasingly lost interest in most of the characters and the plot But this took everything I didn t like in the series and multiplied it by 10000 and took everything I loved and shattered it to pieces.For a while, I actually really enjoyed the direction of the plot It seemed like the world would actually start expa [...]
