Summary

Years in the making, Sarah J. Maas's number-one New York Times best-selling Throne of Glass series draws to an epic, unforgettable conclusion. Aelin Galathynius's journey from slave to king's assassin to the queen of a once-great kingdom reaches its heart-rending finale as war erupts across her world....

Aelin has risked everything to save her people - but at a tremendous cost. Locked within an iron coffin by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin must draw upon her fiery will as she endures months of torture. Aware that yielding to Maeve will doom those she loves keeps her from breaking, though her resolve begins to unravel with each passing day....

With Aelin captured, Aedion and Lysandra remain the last line of defense to protect Terrasen from utter destruction. Yet they soon realize that the many allies they've gathered to battle Erawan's hordes might not be enough to save them. Scattered across the continent and racing against time, Chaol, Manon, and Dorian are forced to forge their own paths to meet their fates. Hanging in the balance is any hope of salvation - and a better world.  

And across the sea, his companions unwavering beside him, Rowan hunts to find his captured wife and queen - before she is lost to him forever.  

As the threads of fate weave together at last, all must fight, if they are to have a chance at a future. Some bonds will grow even deeper, while others will be severed forever in the explosive final chapter of the Throne of Glass series.

Perfect ending for a fantastic series

I truly didn't want this to end and would love a novella follow up of each of the power players maybe 5-10 years in the future

Brilliant finale

Fantastic narration of wonderfully emotive and dramatic writing. Perfect combination of storytelling to bring this story to a satisfying ending.

Disappointing ending

After all the amazing adventures and build up through the previous books, the conclusion was immensely disappointing. Unlike the others, this book dragged and the ending was flat and disappointing.

Relentless Finale

Having waited a WHILE for this book I was looking forward to it. However I found it rather a brutal read. The war and loss is relentless for most of it. I have to say all the interim battles and battle planning is not my favourite part of Sarah J Maas' writing and this book as a LOT of it.

Also, unlike the Court of Thorns and Roses series Sarah J *SPOILER ALERT* goes a little overboard with the killing off of characters. This is a trope many writers seem to be fond of in the final installment of a series and I hate it. It may work dramatically, but it is rarely fun to read and doesn't actually bring much to the narrative. *SPOLER ALERT OVER*

It's an interesting climax to the series, but too long and too brutal for me. I enjoyed the previous books in the series far more. I now need to go read at least five funny, light novels to get the doom and gloom out of my system.

Exciting listen

For the fans of the series, this book will definitely scratch your itch! Full of twists and turns in the story line, as well as colourful characters and emotional storms. Definitely worth a listen.

Amazing

Excellent delivery by Elizabeth Evan as always.

I am still feeling weird about the story. It was a roller coaster ride and stretched a bit at some point but was still well rounded. Also atleast it has a happy ending which I am happy with even though I wasn't really thrilled with Aelin losing almost all her powers. But those gods are just shitty and deserved what they got.

I really enjoyed Dorian's journey and his self discovery. I am actually not a fan of Dorian and Manon's relationship but by the end of the book, I felt a bit better about the relationship. I would still read it again and the other ones in the series too (except the first book because Eleina was just so annoying).

I asked to be buried with my ToG books

Anticipating the near destruction of this book on my soul I phoned my parents and asked to be buried with my Throne of Glass books. I've been completely obsessed with this series for a good few years now and this last installment did not disappoint. Thrilling adventures, grief as real as any I've experienced in real life and cheeky twists I did not see coming again and again. Mostly as I read I continually found myself asking how this woman, the literary Goddess by the name of Sarah J. Maas, imbued the pages with magic so real as to ensare readers mind body and soul. I am devastated to see this series end but am so grateful for having had it in my life and I know I will go back to it again again as I already have. This is my number one all time favourite book series ever. Period. I cannot wait to see what she will write next.

As a footnote I will add that I am immensely grateful for Elizabeth Evans' stellar performance that truly brought each and every book to life in a magnificent way as only a gifted narrator can.

😍 To whatever end !

Immensely satisfying and brilliant!

I waited almost 2 days before I finally settled down to do a review for the last book in my favorite series. I was left stunned, speechless and sobbing tears of joy and sorrow. I think I cried about 80% of the time during this book because it's just so heavy with action, romance, suspense and heartbreak. Sarah J Maas just kept me on the edge of my seat and even though I had so many theories of how the book was going to go down she just kept blind siding me with twists and turns I had never even imagined would happen! I won't go into detail because i don't want to spoil anything for anyone but if you're a lover of the series you will thoroughly enjoy this but you will also have a wicked book hangover. I want more and not because SJM let me down but because she blew this one right out of the water. I'm so incredibly happy to have an ending to the series but I so want a spinoff for some of the other characters. I never wanted this journey to end.

Didn’t disappoint

This book was everything I hoped for. I read it extremely fast staying up late into the night reading. I laughed, cried and had horrible anxiety at certain points. All the loose ends are tied up leaving you feel fulfilled by end. There are some losses which are to be expected in a battle of the ages.

i love this series but...

I am am absolute lover of this series and of high fantasy books in general. I personally loved Tower of Dawn, and if you haven't read it you absolutely have to before diving into this or you will be lost on Chaols storyline. I cannot believe this series is over, and props to Sarah J. Maas at what an amazing accomplishment.
That being said this finale does not hold a candle to other epic fantasy series finales in the completion and way it was written such as: Harry Potter (which who the hell else can compete with JK Rowling, but its ok) Any Brandon Sanderson series finale, George RR Martin, The Wheel of Time series, Lord of the Rings.

*spoiler ahead*
It was unnecessarily descriptive I found myself skipping ahead minutes at a time because it would be "witty" banter or descriptions of things I've basically heard over and over already. I must have heard the phrase "well and truly" a million times and "pine and snow scent" another million. It got a little tiresome. Also, there were times when I thought oh this wasn't edited very well because Dorian mentions "Earth" and all I thought to myself was he is in Erilea, how the hell does he know what Earth is? I was happy that there were less sex scenes, but sometimes there were still whole chapters literally dragging out and dedicated to sex that did not advance the plot whatsoever. Pretty much everybody pairs up eaxctly like you think they will.
There is some heartbreak in the finale. However, I honestly never got the feeling any main character was going to die at any time throughout the book. Which predictably, literally every main character lives, only tiny side characters die. Not saying I didn't feel immensely sad when the 13 sacraficed themselves but you don't know all of them on a personal level. Gavriel was also a great character but he was not a huge part of the storyline to have his loss feel gut renching. The only part I felt most anxious was with Aelid and Lorkin trying to make it back to the gates. Also, how Aelin defeats Maeve was kinda implausible. She barely has any magic, but yet still somehow opens a giant portal for an army to come through without burning herself out.
if you are a fan of the series it is a must read but it is very predictable every step. There are no huge twists that make say oh I didn't see that coming like in the Deathly Hallows.
