I am an adult, but sometimes I have moments where my juvenile side screams to get out, and let me tell you, I am trying so hard right now not to call this book KINGDOM OF ASS. Trying, but not really succeeding because it really was a Kingdom of Ass. This book sucked. And you know, it's funny, because I've been seeing nothing but 5-star reviews for this book in my feed and had so many people commenting on my reviews for the earlier books

I mean, I’d be happy to swear a blood-oath to Sarah J Maas.


So much thoughts were running through my mind whilst I was reading this, but now that I have reached the ending of this book, I’m just a mess of tears and emotions and I don't know how to express how much it all means to me.

I think I can safely say that this is my favourite book of all time. It was transcending.

Let it be known that Sarah J Maas is a Dreamer, and I don’t think any book has fulfilled my dreamer’s heart as much as this b

“Once upon a time, in a land long since burned to ash, there lived a young princess who loved her kingdom …”

I MADE IT!! And if I never hear a woman’s vagina described as her “heated silk” again, that will be just fine by me!

Honestly, though, I have to give it to her: Maas showed a lot of restraint in this book. It was a good 350 pages before Rowan’s magical penis made an appearance 😬. Sorry, I just can't resist. Overall, I liked it enough to give it three stars. I mean, I read all of the baj

Perfection. I am in awe and weeping, my remnants of a heart full.

I was scared that this last book, through whatever course it took, might diminish my love for the whole series -- but gods, was I wrong. It was a thing of beauty, satisfying and heartbreaking in all the right ways. Bittersweet.

I cried and sobbed, I gasped, I screamed, I smiled, I felt my heart beating out of my chest, I shivered, I swooned. I don't think I'll ever be able to write a proper review, but I still feel the need to hig

I had impossibly high hopes for this book. I make no secret that this is my faverite book series. Yet somehow every book just seemed to get better then the last. Could SJM possible do it again. Yes she can, and she did. Wow what an epic finale.

The book is a perfect length, though close to a thousand pages not a single line is wasted. Every possible loose end is tied up. Every hint or hidden story leads to this masterpiece.

The story is awesome, the character development and use is unreal. Every c

rereading this series has been one of the better things to happen in 2020, tbh.

‘once upon a time, in a land long since burned to ash, there lived a young princess who loved her kingdom very much…’

5 special novellas, 7 powerful books, 10 beloved characters, 572 heavy chapters, and 4856 necessary pages have all lead up to this moment, the conclusion of one incredible story.

I tried to write something longer but I believe that only one word is enough so:
- To this series which made me dream and live in a world of magic, friendship, love and sacrifices
- To Dorian, Aelin, Chaol, Manon, Rowan and every single character that made me laugh, cry and fangirl feel with them
- To everything Sarah J. Mass has done for us, no matter how frustrating it turned out to be or how we didn’t agree sometimes with it

If I am the only weirdo that reads the dedication at the beginning of a book and rates it too in her own head then okay, fine, weirdo I’ll be, but I have to start this review by saying this.

Sarah J. Maas dedicated this book to her parents. It is one of the most beautiful dedications I’ve ever read at the beginning of a book.

"The crow-that-did-not-smell-like-a-crow"

And that's it! Seven books, each getting longer, complex, but most importantly, better than the last, every time. Now, Maas has given a near perfect conclusion to this lengthy series with Kingdom of Ash.

"It's too late for speeches."

By now, there is little new to tell about writing style, character development, and the flow of story. Each of these things are considerably improved to where we started with the first book. The author has come

Let me tell you about my journey through the Throne of Glass series. I fell head over heels in love with the ACOTAR series earlier this year, so I decided to give ToG a shot, for clearly the author who created Rhysand and Velaris can do no wrong.

I've never cried so much over a book. Never. There were points were I had to stop reading because I couldn't see the page through my tears.

This was a journey, and I don't just mean this book. This whole series has such a special place in my heart, and what I think a lot of people don't realise is that the Throne of Glass series, like the Harry Potter series, was designed to age with its readers. The teenagers who started

🌟 You may like Sarah J. Maas writing, you may hate it. Actually SJM may be the most controversial author at the current time. So we may agree to disagree on her style but I think something that we can not deny is her immense success and how big this series has got. In my 3 years on GR and few month of blogging, I

“Once upon a time, in a land long since burned to ash, there lived a young princess who loved her kingdom …”

But this story is not only about the young princess. It's the story of a white-haired queen of a divided people, and the warmth that eventually melted her cold heart. It's the story of a tortured king, a king who was drowning in self-loathing and whose soul was darkened by demons and grief but the light within could not be extinguished. The story of a dark and

3.75 - 4 Stars

All things considered, I enjoyed this book and series a great deal.

As the conclusion to a pretty popular and lengthy series, it had a lot riding on its massive 980 page shoulders...and a LOT of uber-emotional fangirls and boys to avoid disappointing, let's be real.


Overall I thought Maas did a pretty decent job of it...

...even with all the filler, all the battles, ALL the traveling to and fro...all the unnecessary...

I feel like I should get an award for finishing this big ass book.

Not gonna lie, I feel kinda empty now that this series has ended 😪

What I liked
- If you looked at my reviews for the previous books, you would notice that I am not a fan of Aelin but she wasn’t bad in this. She became somewhat likeable (or maybe I just felt sorry for her)

- While in previous books Aelin was usually the hero and everyone pretty much worshipped her, in this, there were o
