Consumed by guilt and rage, Celaena can’t bring herself to spill blood for the King of Adarlan. She must fight back…
The Immortal Queen will help her destroy the king – for a price. But as Celaena battles with her darkest memories and her heart breaks for a love that could never last, can she fulfil the bargain and head the almighty court of Terrasen? And who will stand with her?
I don’t know where to start with this review. It’s the first Throne of Glass book that I actually loved. I knew pretty quickly into the book that it was so much better than both the first and second book. It also made me buy book #4 while I was still reading this one and that doesn’t happen a lot so yes, Heir of Fire was really good!
I was simply addicted to this book. It was larger and it had just more epicness all around. I loved that the fae played a bigger role, which was a huge part of me liking this book so much. I love reading about any kind of fae. And Rowan… I loved him so freaking much.
I also liked Celaena a lot more than I did in the previous two books. Especially once she met Rowan and they started training together. I adored their relationship. I feel like he played a big part into the person she was becoming towards the end of the book. And I had lots of love for all the magic!
There’s also some other points of view. I love different POVs so that was yet another reason to love this book. It was nice to read about how the others were doing and also some new characters were introduced. Manon was by far my favorite and I loved her chapters to bits and pieces. I can’t wait to read more about her! I also loved Aedion and Sorscha, too.
The author’s writing has improved a lot in this book than in the two previous books. It was so, so much better! The end of the book made me kind of wanting to scream, like seriously! But hey, at least it wasn’t boring or anything.
With how amazing I thought Heir of Fire was, I’m really glad I didn’t give up on this series and gave it another shot. So fingers crossed for the next book! But I’m sure it’ll be great also.
