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.

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.

Didn’t disappoint

This book was everything I hoped for. I read it extremely fast staying up late into the night reading. I laughed, cried and had horrible anxiety at certain points. All the loose ends are tied up leaving you feel fulfilled by end. There are some losses which are to be expected in a battle of the ages.

i love this series but...

I am am absolute lover of this series and of high fantasy books in general. I personally loved Tower of Dawn, and if you haven't read it you absolutely have to before diving into this or you will be lost on Chaols storyline. I cannot believe this series is over, and props to Sarah J. Maas at what an amazing accomplishment.
That being said this finale does not hold a candle to other epic fantasy series finales in the completion and way it was written such as: Harry Potter (which who the hell else can compete with JK Rowling, but its ok) Any Brandon Sanderson series finale, George RR Martin, The Wheel of Time series, Lord of the Rings.

*spoiler ahead*
It was unnecessarily descriptive I found myself skipping ahead minutes at a time because it would be "witty" banter or descriptions of things I've basically heard over and over already. I must have heard the phrase "well and truly" a million times and "pine and snow scent" another million. It got a little tiresome. Also, there were times when I thought oh this wasn't edited very well because Dorian mentions "Earth" and all I thought to myself was he is in Erilea, how the hell does he know what Earth is? I was happy that there were less sex scenes, but sometimes there were still whole chapters literally dragging out and dedicated to sex that did not advance the plot whatsoever. Pretty much everybody pairs up eaxctly like you think they will.
There is some heartbreak in the finale. However, I honestly never got the feeling any main character was going to die at any time throughout the book. Which predictably, literally every main character lives, only tiny side characters die. Not saying I didn't feel immensely sad when the 13 sacraficed themselves but you don't know all of them on a personal level. Gavriel was also a great character but he was not a huge part of the storyline to have his loss feel gut renching. The only part I felt most anxious was with Aelid and Lorkin trying to make it back to the gates. Also, how Aelin defeats Maeve was kinda implausible. She barely has any magic, but yet still somehow opens a giant portal for an army to come through without burning herself out.
if you are a fan of the series it is a must read but it is very predictable every step. There are no huge twists that make say oh I didn't see that coming like in the Deathly Hallows.

A disappointing conclusion

I really looked forward to this book, but found it disappointing. It is far too wordy, and seemed to drag on and on. it took me forever to get through the last third of the book, both written and audio because my interest would wander. The preceding books are fabulous, I just think this could have been better edited.
