In the next installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, follow Chaol on his sweeping journey to a distant empire.

Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.

His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent's mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.

But what they discover in Antica will change them both—and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.

  If you have not read this series offense but what are you doing with your life. The Throne of Glass series might be the best thing that has happened to me since The Mortal Instruments Series. Sarah J. Maas has created such an amazing and extensive world that I just can not help but get lost in. If you love high fantasy, trust me you will love this series. If you have not read this series you can check out my review of Throne of Glass to see why you should read these books. If you could not tell already I love this series and everything I have read thus far. More and more exciting things keep happening and Sarah J. Maas pulls me in further and further into these books.

Now I was ready to skip over this book because I did not think it was worth the read. As someone who has hated Chaol from the start I did not want to read a book that was entirely him. And then after reading Queen of Shadows I REALLY was in no mood to read this novel. That being said, do not skip over this book but it definitely was not my favorite. 

This book started as a novella and Sarah J. Maas just kept writing and writing and some how a novella became a nearly 700 page book. It felt like I was reading an entirely different story set in the same world. So many different characters were introduced that will be a crucial part of the plot in the last novel (which I have already started reading). I did not really fall into this story until the last third. The only thing that kept my interest was the coupling up of numerous people which I felt like was unnecessary but not hated. I found myself skimming through it a lot and honestly I wished it stayed a novella. The one piece I found truly interesting was Maeve's background. Otherwise I did not like this book, but I did finish it because I realized its importance.

I would give this book 2 and 1/2 stars out of 5. You cannot skip this book in the series but I wish I could have.
