Publisher's Summary

In the next installment of the New York Times best-selling 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.

Fantastic.

I hesitated to pick up this one, because ugh... Chaol.

But Maas did not disappoint, and neither did Chaol, to my surprise.

Evans is a phenomenal narrator, which is why I started Throne of Glass to begin with.

Eagerly awaiting number 7.

Chaol and Nesryn’s adventures

TBH, I sort of struggled to transition from the cliff hanger of Empire of Storms…. To across the seas to follow Chaol and Nesryn’s adventures. Overall it was a great book, but I was anxiously waiting to get back to Aelin! Once I finish the series, I’m sure I will appreciate the book more! I’ll love to read it again.

Should’ve been a Novella

TANDEM READ. My god make sure you tandem read this. It was so hard/boring to get through. I can’t imagine reading in order. Yrene and Nesryn were the best parts of it.

The narrator was awesome as always

Tough turn but worth it

This is my least favourite of the series, strictly because of the divergence in protagonist/perspective, however I found it integral to the story development.

Great Story - half of the story explained

This story happens at the same time as empire of storms.
Could not recommend a tandem read enough! I loved bouncing back and forth between all the characters I’ve grown to love.

Tower of Dawn

Enjoyed the entire series but never was a fan of “cringy” Chaol. Have to admit, I did a lot of eye rolling during his recovery. To have a book mainly about him, just reinforced my opinion of that character. Narration was very well done.
