You know, if there's one thing that I don't understand, is why authors who haven't developed their worlds consistently or thoroughly enough, suddenly feel the need to milk it by creating a companion book that details every little aspect that the author was too LAZY to properly explain themselves!

I feel like the people who came up with the name for this companion guide to Throne of Glass, were trying to reap the success The World of Ice and Fire had.


Here's the thing tho. A Song of Ice and Fire.

Of all the book SJM is going to release this is the one I'm most excited for! Well, unless if one of the new ACOTAR books is called The World of ACOTAR... Just imagine, information about Hybern, the courts, the fae, etc. THAT WOULD BE AMAZING!! Returning to this book read the description:

The ultimate guide to the Throne of Glass series and the world of Erilea, including an illustrated compendium of characters, settings, magic, gods, politics, creatures, and vocabulary, plus a timeline of events

I heard from people on Tumblr that went to the meet and greets that Sarah said that this is supposed to be part encyclopedia and part chronology. It’s supposed to take place 10 years after KoA. And it’s going to say what happened to all of the characters. She also might also write more books or novellas one day, if the right story came along, but she wants to take a break from ToG for awhile.

Another update: So after the publishers advertising this and saying it's for sure coming out LAST YEAR, then ghosting the book and pretending it never existed, then moving the release date to a whole year later, now Sarah J. Maas is not sure when it will come out at all.

Update: Seems like the release has been pushed back by a whole year now, with Amazon listing the date as Oct. 1, 2019.

This was originally supposed to come out the same day as Kingdom of Ash, but looks like it got pushed back. I w

Can this book come out in 2021 and be like an award for surviving 2020?

Something like... " CONGRATS! YOU SURVIVED 2020! Here's a story about Aelin and Rowan as Queen and King. Oh and Lysandra and Aedion's married life. And Lorcan and Elide living their best life. Oh and Manon and Dorian are now ruling together. OOOH and Yrene and Chaol have a daughter."

Like... please, Sarah? We deserve this.

Guys I’m not sure if it’s 100% true but I was told from some people who preordered the book on Amazon, that their order and the book was canceled. Apparently the book wasn’t “wanted” enough. I’m seriously pissed.
The book was supposed to be released in 2018. Now it’s the end of 2019 and there’s not even a cover reveal. Sarah says nothing about the book like she pretends it doesn’t even exist. I understand that she’s busy but she could give us SOME news. What I don’t understand is that she seems t

Rowan’s accent will be clarified ?! ( like how Prythian from ACOTAR Is directly based off Great Britain which means Rhysand may have a Scottish accent!?) AHHHH
