Kingdom of Ash
By Sarah J. Maas

Review: Kingdom of Ash

“Once upon a time, in a land long since burned to ash, there lived a young princess who loved her kingdom…”

Years in the making, thousands of pages devoured, a multitude of characters loved and lost. Sarah J. Maas brought to life a vast and vivid world, brimming with magic and myth, threatened by a darkness that promises to undo a kingdom, and a once-assassin whose quest to save her home changes everything.

In 992 pages, Maas boldly brings this story to an end. It was perfection. Teeming with emotion, intimacy and battles of epic proportions, KINGDOM OF ASH delivered in every way I hoped. The story threads entwined together beautifully… nothing felt forced or fast. Each character’s ARC was thoughtfully expounded.

There were times that were brutal, that made me shudder, and times that were so poignant, they brought me to tears.

Manon was such an incredible badass in this book, and it was frankly a couple of scenes with the witches that had me reading blurry eyed. Dorian’s arc was also one of my favorites, as was Elide and Lorcan’s (one passage with Elide and Lorcan nearly killed me it was so tense, so good). We even saw more dimension to Maeve, and I found her quite fascinating in this final installment.

But it’s Aelin, of course, who brings it—and them—all together through her dogged determination, through her sacrifice, and with a promise of a better world.

It’s impressive how such a behemoth of a novel can feel short—it was just that well done. Never dull, the narrative at an unrelenting fever pitch.

This is the way you end a series.

“To whatever end,” he whispered.
Silver lined her eyes. “To whatever end.”
