The long path to the throne has just begun for Aelin Galathynius.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?

This fifth installment in the sensational New York Times bestselling series is the most thrilling yet and cannot be missed.

OMG!! I don't even know how to approach this review. So much amazing, wonderful, heart wrenching and mind boggling things happened in this book. I'm still trying to wrap my head around this story and contain all the crazy feelings I have for these characters.
Sarah J. Mass is a wizard of words and no-one has touched my soul and heart this way since the Harry Potter series. This 5th installment of the 'Throne of Glass' series was packed with action, steamy romance, betrayal, heartbreak, laughter and tears. And lots and lots of plot twists!!!
Although I will admit that some of the sexy scenes caught me a little off guard (But every fan girl has to admit they were secretly waiting for it to happen ;) . Even though the book was just over 700 pages, it still didn't feel long enough to cover everything I wanted and has just made me ''DESPERATELY' wanting' the next and final book.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to briefly escape their everyday life and fully emerge themselves in this wonderful world which Sarah J. Mass has blessed us with. Overall, it will make you cry and laugh and have you craving for more.

I was so, SO excited for the newest edition in the Throne of Glass series! It was the first book that I ever pre-ordered and as a School Librarian I've reccomended the series to literally dozens of people.
That was until the vivid, pleantiful sex scenes in this latest edition that would make 50 Shades of Grey fans blush.
Now, I know that sex is nothing new to this series, and YA books explore these topics rather often but the "hot" scene on the beach and the borderline-bondage was a bit much. Honestly, it felt unnessasary and REALLY made me wish that I hadn't reccomended this series to YOUNG STUDENTS. I mean, they weren't badly written, but the plot would have progressed all the same had the pages and pages of them been replaced with the phrase "AND THEN THEY BONED".

Other complaints include the Mannon twist - SPOILERS - I loved the whole half-and-half thing but I didn't really like the "royal" thing. It's kinda like Oprah on a couch screaming "a kingdom for you, a kingdom for you, a kingdom for everyone!"

But asides those two minor complaints, the overall plot was SUPERBLY written and I will still be pre-ordering the next one.

Comments about Empire of Storms:

Love, love this book to bits. It was one of those "stay up all night despite having work tomorrow: type of books; I just couldn't put it down!
Engaging characters and amazing storyline makes this book an incredibly worthwhile purchase. Would definitely recommend this book (and the entire series) to anyone who enjoys reading about fantasy, swords and magic-y books.

          THIS BOOK! I loved it so so so much. And the ending killed me but in a good way. You know when an ending is amazing and you love it because everything lines up and it's so epic, but something heartbreaking happens? Yea? Well, this is exactly what happens. I love it but I hate it in a good way. Amazingly well-written, I couldn't put this down, world building that isn't boring, and exciting and quirky characters that I am ridiculously attached to. 71/5 definitely. This is my favourite series ever containing my favourite character ever.

            Comments about Empire of Storms:

            As a teacher librarian you read an enormous amount of books of your life; it is a rare find when a series comes across your desk that hits all the boxes for an incredible read. My niece introduced me to this series when it first came out and I have since bought all paperbacks as well as the short stories in digital form. This is book five in a very well written series with characters that hook your heart and demand your presence in the story alongside them. How can one go past a flawed heroine who is everything to everyone in her life but at a cost! An unmissable read but you must read from the start as Sarah J Maas has crafted a superb story line that must be experienced in full to gain the full impact of the world and the sacrifices it demands of its characters. Do yourself a favour and discover the Throne of Glass series.

                Bought for my daughter who LOVED it. She's 13, a real bookworm and has read other titles by this author.
                Not sure it will be read by her again as there are too many other books to read and so little time.
