“Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past…She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight. She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die for her. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return.”
!!!!DON’T READ THIS REVIEW IF YOU DON’T WANT ANY SPOILERS!!!!
amazing. AMAZING. This series is just so damn perfect, right?! once again, i find myself having a hard time writing a review for one of Mass books because, again, all i have to say is : Perfect. The storyline in this one was great! Entertaining, emotional with some epic fight scenes. But, like I said in my Heir of Fire review, i have a hard time enjoying Manon’s storyline. I think it may be because I really don’t care about her character or any of the ones in her story. but that’s just me. I saw many people saying Manon was one of their favorite character in the series. Dorian’s chapters were HEARTBREAKING. He is one of the character that I learned to love a little more with each book. I remember not caring so much about him in book 1 and now look at me, i’m a mess because of him! Chaol is still my perfect book boyfriend, and all i wanted to do in this book is hug him. He is so sad and broken and i just want him to have a happy ending. His friendship with Dorian is probably one of my favorite one in the entire world, i love these two sooooo much! Aelin is incredible in this one. Again, strong, beautiful, smart, funny, she is the perfect main character. I’m also loving how her relationship with Rowan is evolving. They are fantastic together, can’t wait to see how it will go from now. The last couple of chapters were epic. I seriously can’t say it enough : this series is perfection.
Queen of Shadows : 5/5
