Harlee, David and I are starting a buddy read for Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3) by Sarah J. Maas starting Thursday, Jan 22nd! Everyone is welcome to join!

There are no set chapters per day, we just read at our own paces and start each post with how far along you are, i.e., Chapter #, %, using spoilers where needed. Have fun!


Harlee | 1583 comments I am SO excited to read this!

Ditto that! Yes, I also had to work this morning, just got off and have to do a few errands and things--then its reading time!! Very excited for this book :)


Harlee | 1583 comments I was sitting in a waiting room most of the morning, so I did read then. So far, so good!

Okay just started reading, on page 99 or 18% and loving it and really into this world again! I love that we are getting to know some new characters. The witch, Manon is beyond creepy. I already like Rowan, he actually reminds me a little of Chaol.

I really want to read some more, but I'm exhausted, about fell asleep while I was reading! I might be going to bed very early tonight!


Harlee | 1583 comments I'm around page 59. I agree, Manon is wicked but I'm intrigued by her! I'm looking forward to learning more about Rowan and I kind of want to see Celaena and..oh what's his name? The traitor general dude? I wanna see what she thinks of him!

I can't think of his name right off the top of my head, either Harlee (I'm horrible with names!) I know it starts with an "A" LOL! But YES, I agree with you!

And OMG, the suspense about Dorian not knowing who Celaena really is is KILLING ME!


Harlee | 1583 comments Aedion! That's it! Same here! And I feel so bad for Chaol because he feels awful for not telling him!

Page 42 :) The first Manon chapter was so good! Creepy/scary, but good.

Really like (as in he's totally hateable) Aedion as a new character too.

Jenny (juliababyjen) | 12932 comments Mod
Agreed David! It gets even creepier with Manon!


Harlee | 1583 comments I love the name Aedion though! I finished the second Manon chapter, she is seriously wicked and I hate that I find her intriguing!


Harlee | 1583 comments I'm on page 93. I'm a bit overwhelmed by all these witch gangs and leaders and rules, etc but I like getting it all from Manon's POV.

Oh good, I caught up! Page 153 :)

So far I like all the plotlines so far, but the level of detail is getting to be a little much LOL. But I get the feeling it's all going to come together in a big way. On Aedion (view spoiler)


Harlee | 1583 comments I'm at page 116, hoping to read a little more later tonight. I'm a slight bit overwhelmed by how much is going on, but I like it! Chaol has A LOT on his plate right now, and I hate his dad.

I'm up to page 190. I haven't had much reading time this weekend unfortunately, but its all good!

YES, David, agree completely on Aedion!

Yeah, geez, those things are (view spoiler)

Page 237: The Manon chapters are my favorite by far! Just so creepy and interesting. I thought it was awesome how (view spoiler) The Celaena chapters are okay, but a bit slow-moving. I'm getting a little bored with the Chaol chapters now that (view spoiler) The chapters with Dorian and (view spoiler)

In my head its like "Porsche" with an "a" at the end, if that makes sense.

No worries, Harlee, I didn't get any reading done in this book yesterday, was reading David's book instead ;)

HOping to read some more tonight! I have a meeting to go to up at the school, I'm hoping it will be short!


Harlee | 1583 comments Huh, I think I like your pronunciation better lol! I'm hoping to read some more tonight, aiming to get to the 200's!

Okay, now up to page 306! Getting ready to start part 2!

(view spoiler)

Its really getting good now!


Harlee | 1583 comments Page 178. I think I'm finally liking Rowan. I want to learn more about him. Actually, I'm really liking all these new characters!


Harlee | 1583 comments I'm finally at 200 and wow, I am really getting into this now!


Harlee | 1583 comments I'm at 213 and Whaaaat? (view spoiler)

Yeah, I had the exact same reaction. He was so hateable and then so likeable, I love that sort of a twist! His POV was so good :)

No I don't think so. I think those are just Chaol's assumptions, I don't think its ever been confirmed. Celaena won't face up to it yet.

I couldn't agree more, the new characters are FANTASTIC. I also really like Rowan after disliking him for so long.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure we already knew this...but it's been SO long since I read the prequels and the first two books so I could be mistaken.


Harlee | 1583 comments Me too! And as hard as it is to admit, I'm really liking Manon! She's so cruel but I can't help but like her. Can you imagine her and Celaena in a fight??

Agreed and that would be AWESOME!! (unless someone dies!)

Agreed on Rowan, I actually liked him before, but I was getting pretty frustrated with him! But then again, I was frustrated with Celaena too!

I'm sorry, guys, couldn't help it...after page 350, I was HOOKED!! I would have finished last night, but I was falling asleep, too, David, for the same reason!

I just finished it! And it was OMG EPIC!!!!! Even better than Crown of Midnight! Several big twists and revelations, although not any quite as big as CoM!

The big battle scene that happens towards the end, and lasts several pages...I can't wait to hear your guys reactions! WOW, IT WAS SO GOOD!!!! And I love how things start tying together, but there's still tons of story left for the sequels!

It. Was. Brilliant!!


Harlee | 1583 comments I'm not too far behind you, David. I'm hoping to read more tonight :)


Harlee | 1583 comments I'm at page 277, gonna try and read a bit before bed. I'm so frustrated with Celaena and Rowan! They were making progress :'( I'm still enjoying Manon's chapters and I'm still impressed with how much I am liking her and Aedion!


Harlee | 1583 comments Page 309. Now they are back on track! And wow, his story...as awful as it is, this bond they now share is incredible.
