This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
She was the heir of ash and fire, and she would bow to no one.
Celaena Sardothien has survived deadly contests and shattering heartbreak—but at an unspeakable cost. Now she must travel to a new land to confront her darkest truth…a truth about her heritage that could change her life—and her future—forever.
Meanwhile, brutal and monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, intent on enslaving her world. To defeat them, Celaena must find the strength to not only fight her inner demons but to battle the evil that is about to be unleashed.
I’m not sure what to say about this third installment. It took me a long time to finish it and it was a struggle to say the least. The plot itself was great but the amount of characters we had to follow alongside our main character became too exhausting and the development throughout the books’ story was dragged out similar to her other series A Court of. I believe we get some references in this book to that series and I’m not a fan of that. Like in A Court of series, the amount of mate used is unbelievable, and we see a lot of that in this one too.
Dorian and Chaol had be bored. I used to care for those two characters, but now they are bland, boring and charmless. My issue lies here too, just when the chapters with Dorian and Chaol started to get interesting, a new chapter would turn up with some complete stranger.
After finishing the second book, I was literally surfing the net for the whole series to purchase, but somehow I never got around to buying it, and now after finishing this third book, I’m glad I didn’t waste that kind of money. I’ll wait until they come in Danish and I’ll purchase them, then.
Rereading my review it makes it sound like the book is nothing but a big snooze, but that’s not exactly right. The book is interesting at times, but the main problem here is that, the second the book starts to get exciting and action is about to happen, we get a new chapters, usually, following another character, and a slow moving pace.
I’m not a fan of this book. If the book only revolved around Celaena this would have been a masterpiece.
I’m not sure if I’m the only one who feels this way, but the writing seems different from the first two.
