“A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.
It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend.”From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.
Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.
Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena’s world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie… and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.
I didn’t really have a ship before, because I still wasn’t over Sam, but now I do. Chaol, I will love you forever and ever, you are my heart and soul. I spoiled myself and read the reviews for the next two books, and I know that some shit is about to go down. Chaol and Celaena probably won’t end up together, and Chaol’s character may turn into a total asshat. I’m too invested in this series to stop reading though. I guess I’ll just have to accept things when it comes to that. I caN’t exactly hunt Sarah J. Maas down and beg her to have Celaena end up with Chaol. *sigh*
This book had a lot of surprises. I was devastated in some parts, while I was elated in some other parts. I must admit that I have spoiled myself yet again by sneaking peeks in later chapters. Why do I do that to myself you ask? I’m insane. That’s it.
I’m still thinking about when to read Heir of Fire. I really want to read it, but I’m trying to restrain myself. I want the series to be finished before I go all out and have a series marathon. I don’t think I’ll be able to hold out much longer though.
