“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 bajil

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

AHH this finale was on such a grand scale! SO ENJOYABLE, SO EPIC. Just filmed my booktalk and it will be up sometime in the next week on my channel (polandbananasbooks).

I honestly wasn't sure how any one book could possibly cover every detail I wanted to see from the conclusion. I was worried that maybe the final battles wouldn't have the weight the whole series was building to or that my favorite characters (Elide and Manon) wouldn't get a lot of page time, but everything worked out perfectly and this is probably one of my favorite books in the series now.

A few brief thoughts:
The battle scenes were totally epic. I'm so glad we got
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

THANK YOU to this series which will stay forever in my heart <3

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.

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

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 in

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

4 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.

"What if we go on, only to more pain and despair?"

"Then it is not the end."

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

Maybe, if we cancel this book then the series never has to end.

“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 b

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

This has been a journey. One with emotion, one with lots and lots of emotions! And I'll have to say that this was pretty great conclusion to the series!

There are a lot of POVs here! And I love so many of the characters that I can't really choose a favorite. The only POVs I could have probably done without were Aedion's and Lysandra's. The others just had so much more going on within them. Manon and her witches had to be my favorite! Lorcan! Loved him! My baby Dorian! Rowan is swoon! Yrene is cou
