She was fire, and light, and ash, and embers. She was Aelin Fireheart, and she bowed for no one and nothing, save the crown that was hers by blood and survival and triumph.
Queen of Shadows was a special book in this series for me. I had to deal with a major reading slump while going through it – without blaming the books for it. But since I definitely wanted to join Aelin on her journey, I plunged myself straight into Erilea and fought against the slump. And let me tell you – it was worth it. Every single page of it. I’m still not quite sure whether I am able to write this review – I finished the book a few days ago and I still cannot comprehend it. The world of Throne of Glass just got amplified and I desperately want to live there – even though I’d probably die there. But everything I learned from the first three books just got better and more intense – it was just like the tip of the iceberg.
