Yeah Celæna is actually the Aelin person who's heir to Terrasen. Yes she's fae ~ Great -grandmother was Mab, an old Fae queenish-person, her aunt Maeve (Sister of Mab) is current Queen of Wendlyn.
There were hints through the Crown of Midnight about Aelin but only properly revealed at the end.
Hope this answer helps
Enjoy reading Heir of Fire!

Shit seriously just went down. Oh wow, where do I start with this sequel? I wasn't even sure I was going to read it when I recently finished Throne of Glass and found it entertaining but a poor excuse for fantasy. You want to know what Crown of Midnight felt like? It was like the author listened to every piece of criticism I could have thrown at the first book, listened to everything I loved and everything that irritated me... and then wrote a perfect kind of book. The kind I wanted the first on ...more
I just.... wow.
The only reason this isn't rated higher is because the first half was quite slow in pace and I wasn't as invested, but the second half SURE DID REMEDY THAT. Help me?
Holy mother of all Gods! I'm starstruck. This is what I'd like to call a gorgeous sequel. Dare I say it, it might even top Throne of Glass!
Celaena Sardothien is doing her job as King's Champion, meaning she's killing people that stepped on the king's toes. And now she's got a new target: Archer Finn, former crush and friend from the time when she was within the Assassin’s Guild. Turns out, she's not killing her targets, but faking their deaths, so she's in a lot of dan ...more
Hear ye, hear ye all who seek adventure, ass-kicking and romance come forth! The second installment doth not disappoint! Our heroine is back as the King's Champion so expect action galore. Hear ye, hear ye . . .
Her lovely dresses and ornate clothes were gone, replaced with an unforgiving, close-cut black tunic and pants. Her hair pulled back in a long braid that fell into the folds of that dark cloak she was always wearing. She was a beautiful wrath …
This book turned up in my room ...more
To say Sarah J. Maas stepped up her game in the second book of her “Throne of Glass Series” most certainly would be the understatement of the century. No, scratch that, it actually doesn’t even get close to the truth. XD
I swear in comparison to the first book this truly was an action packed and suspenseful read! =)
Alone the many awesome fight scenes and the countless revelations throughout the entire book were already enough ...more
I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING, well actually some of it, like C heritage I saw coming.
BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO PEOPLE IN THIS BOOK WAS OMG
SERIOUSLY ITS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER.
THAT ENDING THOUGH
AND MY FAVOURITE CHARACTER DIED
CHAOL, CHOAL HOW EVER YOU SPELL IT. I am not sure i like him anymore!
(P.S. Fucking Chaol, man.)
Reading this with Kat Kennedy!

Don't get me started on the cover,because you all know how much I appreciate these beauties.This series has everything on it's perfection,starting from the covers to the story and the characters,and everything.Simply perfect...more
So, I'm going to rant a little about Chaol and Celaena's relationship in Crown of Midnight ...more
Ten(ish) years ago, before the explosion of hair removal services, I used to go to this tiny South Korean lady who rented a space in a nearby salon. The moment she got me in her room, she'd keep up a constant stream of very bad English. The only thing she said that I could understand was, "Oh my GAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH." This was also her favorite thing to say, so I heard it a lot.
That's how I feel after finishing this book.
Oh my GAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH.

Celaena is keeping up her end of the bargain to the horrible king. She is killing people and bringing their heads to the king. Or is she really?
We find out some secrets about Dorian and Celaena that I just loved. I loved it! Loved it!
Chaol and Celaena have a little thing but when something bad happens i ...more
❝The best lies were always mixed with truth.❞
Crown of Midnight was the book that shattered my heart into pieces and made me cry many times when I least expected it. Sarah J. Maas has done something, something with her writing that has now captured my heart and owns it. Her writing is phenomenal, and knowing how much improvement was actually made, I can already tell HoF and QoS will be phenomenal as well. Crown of Midnight had its own improvements in everything - Celaena became more badass, mor ...more
Answer me something. How can this—
"She tipped her head back and gave the moon a wicked smile. She'd been called Adarlan's assassin for a reason. Dramatic entrances were practically her art form."
"Curled on the couch beside Chaol, Calaena took a sip of her tea and frowned. "Can't you hire a servant like Philippa, so we can have someone bring us treats?"
—possibly be the same person?
I teetered between liking and hating Calaena while reading. Mostly hating. I can handle the sh ...more
Basically, everyone I know and their mother loved this. They loved it so so so much. They praised it endlessly.
I am Yzma with this book. Everyone else is Kronk:
INCOHERENT RANT BELOW. I JUST WANT TO COMPLAIN. LET'S GO:
DID I READ A DIFFERENT BOOK THAN EVERYONE??? It was no better than Throne of Glass to me! The storyline expands and I thought the plot showed hints of getting complicated but ...more
Chaol improves & shit, but... no. Dorian. Love. Celaena. Eternally~
& this has title & blurb! Best way to start the year! Which BTW tells me that Celaena shall love Dorian. The heart is never easy, okay? That's why she has me, to show her the way.
Oh, & other thing this book will need: A dead king(!).
Hmm... that cover is v ...more
She is an assassin.
There's a difference. (Probably.)
He had no idea what sort of darkness lurked inside her, or what sort of monster she was willing to become in order to make things right.I honestly don't even know where to start with this one. It was so good and I'm just absolutely reeling from that ending. Because. Wow. Sarah J. Maas just delivered on this sequel.
"Enough! We have enough enemies as it is! There are worse things out...more
It left me with so many feelings that I'm still picking through.
But but but before I continue.. its OK. I can see the bigger picture now... sooooo I'm ok. Actually you know what? She's bloody brilliant. This entire story was planned to be this way from the get go. She's building towards something much bigger in this series as a whole. So for those of you who are t ...more
secondly, i saw a status update the other day where someone expressed their frustration with how women in novels, specifically YA, are too often portrayed as fierce and dangerous. while i agree that kindness and gentleness should also be represented, i have to say that i live for my ruthless and downright deadly ladies.
for me, reading about celaena, about an a ...more

#1 Throne of Glass ★★★★☆
#2 Crown of Midnight ★★★★★
I’ve got this schedule going where I’m trying to read one book in this series per month, leading up to the Kingdom of Ash release, so that I’m all caught up in time for the big finale, but this one took me a little while to pick it up because I had a horrible slump in May. I went a week without touching a book, which hasn’t happened to me in years, and—no exaggeration—this was the only book that was able to cut ...more
