GUESS WHO’S BACK?!?! Well, I say that every time I come on here and then I leave for another week. But, today I decided to FINALLY write up my Queen of Shadows review. I loved this book so much and I can’t wait for you all to read my thoughts on it SOOO, let’s get straight into this review!
Title/Author: Queen Of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
Series: Throne of Glass (4)
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA
Release Date: September 1, 2015
The queen has returned.
Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past…
She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight.
She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die for her. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return.
The fourth volume in the New York Times bestselling series continues Celaena’s epic journey and builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.
I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH!! IT WAS THE EPITOME OF ALL BOOKS AND I COULDN’T HAVE WISHED FOR ANYTHING BETTER FROM SARAH J. MAAS!
Wow, that was one heck of an intro but we’ll just go with it because it is the absolute truth. This book completed me. It filled me with sorrow, happiness, pity and every other emotion one could experience throughout life. This book did the unexpected to me, too. It compelled me to love books even more, which from anytime before that, I would’ve said was impossible. Just a reminder to myself, anything is possible.
One of my favorite pasts of this novel was Celaena herself, of course. **Wow, shocker**. I should probably get into the hang of calling her Aelin now but I feel like at heart, she still Celaena. Even if Celaena was never her real name. But ANYWAYS, in QOS, Aelin brought out the every bit of her bad-ass personality. She was feisty, scary and full-on fierce. Aelin brought forward everything within her. She killed, fought and saved people for her loved ones. And in the end her “court”(is that even the right word?) was made, with her as queen.
Could anyone believe all of the stress Sarah put us through waiting for Rowan to come back? I couldn’t help but wonder to myself, “what is she doing to me. what is this series without Rowan?”. But then, out of no where, he comes back and pieces the whole story back together. It went from a helpless Aelin, Aedion, Chaol and Lysandra to the queen’s court. Rowan basically makes the series as amazing as it is and I don’t think I would be able to continue it if he was killed off.
I’m so sorry that this post was short but It’s pretty late here and I really wanted to get it up! So here it is. I hope you all had an amazing thanksgiving (if you’re American) and are prepared to hit up every single store tomorrow. Happy reading! Xxxx, Alaina
