Review: Kingdom of Ash - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

Years in the making, Sarah J. Maas’s #1 New York Times bestselling 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.

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.”
