Publisher's Summary

Years in the making, Sarah J. Maas's number-one New York Times best-selling 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.

Gave me goosebumps!

This series is amazing- made me cry, smile, and laugh. I honestly had goosebumps multiple times; the character development is so good and the way the story lines weave together is effortless. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Just amazing!

This book above all the others in the series brought tears to my eyes, happy and sad. Sarah J. Maas is an incredible author and I cannot wait to see what her other books have in store for me. Next on my list A Court of Thorns and Roses. I am sad that it is over... I can't even put into words how amazing this book and all the others are, so I guess I will just leave it at that! WOW!

Epic Adventure

Only so many stories have captivated me across multiple books in a series and managed to take me on an adventure. That's exactly what this series, Sarah Mass, Aelin, and the wonderful Elizabeth Evans. This book was really the pièce de résistance of the series non-stop action from start to a thrilling finish. Throne of Glass now ranks right up there with The Dark Tower and Lord of the Rings as books that truly transported me

Immensely satisfying and brilliant!

I waited almost 2 days before I finally settled down to do a review for the last book in my favorite series. I was left stunned, speechless and sobbing tears of joy and sorrow. I think I cried about 80% of the time during this book because it's just so heavy with action, romance, suspense and heartbreak. Sarah J Maas just kept me on the edge of my seat and even though I had so many theories of how the book was going to go down she just kept blind siding me with twists and turns I had never even imagined would happen! I won't go into detail because i don't want to spoil anything for anyone but if you're a lover of the series you will thoroughly enjoy this but you will also have a wicked book hangover. I want more and not because SJM let me down but because she blew this one right out of the water. I'm so incredibly happy to have an ending to the series but I so want a spinoff for some of the other characters. I never wanted this journey to end.

Anticlimactic Ending

While I realize that I'm a bit older than the target demographic for this series, I can say that the Throne of Glass series started out really strong for me; however, the last 2 books really felt like the author was just looking to provide readers with an ending for the story.

The surprising twists & turns, the shocking losses of key characters & the intricate worlds that were the greatest parts of the first books of the series gave way to focusing on the romantic well being of the main characters & making sure that everyone was in love with a bright future ahead. Having the chaos & hardships endured by these characters finish up with everyone living happily ever after was unrealistic & very disappointing... it left the story with a falseness at the end where you were waiting for that one last challenge from the pervasive evil of Morath... but it never came.

Not as good as the rest of the series

I have read the fantasy genre since before it was cool to read. And Maas had a really stellar series going with several smashing female protagonists (though the main character feels a bit like Nicholas Cage - has about three basic expressions). I was really looking forward to the final book...annnd....nope. The first third of the book does well, but after that it feels as if Maas just needed to get the thing written and done. The plot twists and reveals she's had in the other books are just not there. This is pretty straightforward vanilla by comparison. Having said that, it's still very satisfying to see most of the loose ends tied up. It just can't measure up to the rest of the series for excitement and innovation. #ChosenOne #FemaleProtagonist #Magical #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

great story

I loved the story but every character was just the stereotypical "rebellious brilliant woman" and "stoic serious guy" you see in every teen novel. Her writing greatly improved from the first book, but dialog was still pretty mundane.

Good narration but story too drawn out

Unfortunately this last book was a let down, it ended as we thought but was mostly drawn out and in some ways a little predictable. I enjoyed the other books and looked forward to an ‘epic’ ending but was left a little dry. It is definitely still worth reading/listening to though!

Great story, kinda lacking though.

Let me start by just saying that this book is crazy long. There is so much story and action that constantly captivates you that it's very enjoyable. However, towards the end of the book everything feels rushed. I understand that there is a lot happening but it almost feels like there is enough story for another book. Some stuff even feel left out for the sake of time. Overall though, it's a fantastic story with an amazing performance and a lot of likeable characters.

Too emotional and not enough Sass

Honestly. It was not a page turner like the other first books. This one just seemed really drawn out and repetitive and not as fun or entertaining as the other books. this series had so much potential and it just didn't keep its amazing set up and story but dwindled out to something that is not that interesting and extremely basic. Basically the same thing that happened to Court of thorns happened to this. amazing stories. just drawn out too long or didn't have es much depth in the end as the beginning books. I'm very disappointed because I was in love with this series.
