Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
In the third installment in the Throne of Glass series, Celaena is going through more than ever before. She’s trying to get through the huge block of grief she encountered in Crown of Midnight, forced to face her heritage, and trains with Prince Rowan in Wendlyn to turn into a proper warrior. She slays not only the physical demons but her own as well. In another point of view, we see Dorian and Chaol struggling to find their places at the capitol. They interact with Aedion Ashryver, who seems like the typical reckless and ruthless killer for the King, but appearances are not to be assumed in Maas’s incredible world. With yet another new perspective in the series, we are introduced to Manon Blackbeak, an Ironteeth Witch in the Blackbeak Clan. She is cruel and shows no mercy, but we soon realize that there’s a miniscule little ember of something that resembles love that’s smoldering when she gains her steed, a wyvern.
We follow these two strong-hearted females in this thrilling novel which is so far, my favorite out of the series. The character progression we see in Celaena is absolutely jaw-dropping. The new characters introduced in this book are probably my favorite thing about this book. Aedion is my new favorite little baby and Rowan makes me tremble at the knees in anticipation for the next chapter with him. Sarah J. Maas, how do you keep writing men I love? Manon slays my life just as much as she slays her enemies; a world where Manon and Celaena rule is my ideal world. In terms of relationships, Celaena and Rowan’s friendship makes me complete; it’s most likely the best friendship I have ever read. Heir of Fire is significantly larger than the two previous books, but understandably so. Maas includes an ever intensifying plot and list of problems to overcome, while still keeping up relationships and emotions of all the characters, old and new. To keep this to a reasonable length, I must stop right about here, but for the love of Wyrd, please don’t miss out on one heck of an adventure and read this book.
