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

A solid final instalment

No time is wasted in recapping what has gone before . Do not attempt to read this if you haven't read all previous books in the series.

There are three distinct groups / story arcs travelling towards each other for the final big show-down. There is no treading lightly around a big ending, and nothing held back in the violence of the battles. It's a well conceived final instalment, with very few loose ends.

I did find the writing a little uninspiring at times. The same descriptors repeated over and over (up, up, up and dive, dive, dive), and the sex scenes a little gratuitous and samey, and a good editor might have been able to tighten it all up. However, despite these few gripes (I know I'm of the fussy variety), the plot is still good, and although the final outcome is not unexpected, it doesn't all go to plan and therefore it keeps it interesting.

It's been a good series, and one I've enjoyed from start to finish. It didn't lose any momentum in this final instalment, and in the end, it was all quite satisfying. It helps that I've always enjoyed the heroine - and her character development is solid and consistent throughout the series.

Narration is ok - occasionally jarring, but on the whole it's alright (but that might be more the writing not being up to par in those places, than the narration's problem).

Brilliant finale

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

Perfect end to a series

A perfect end to the series! I can’t find it impossible to have a favourite character when all the story lines converge in such a manner.

The only down side now is, the fact that it’s all over I’ve a void to fill with other books now

The most emotional book I've ever read.

This is one of the best books I've ever read by my perhaps favourite author.
The narrator is also pretty damn amazing and her voice for Evangeline really portrays her raw innocent emotion.

10/10 would read again.

Excellent

I loved every minute, cried at times and cheered at others. A mythical fantasy world this may be but the strength of hope that rallied again and again through this story radiated like a beacon. If you want to take some time out of reality then this audio book is a must.

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.

A disappointing conclusion

I really looked forward to this book, but found it disappointing. It is far too wordy, and seemed to drag on and on. it took me forever to get through the last third of the book, both written and audio because my interest would wander. The preceding books are fabulous, I just think this could have been better edited.

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.
