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.

The narrotor, awkward at first then I got used to it. I've read all the books but this one so it may have been my own stigma that got in the way. once i got used to the narrator i loved it.

Always the best from Maas

What an absolutely wonderful book. The story is compelling and refreshing. It doesn’t even feel like a side book at all. Definitely worth the buy and improves the story line as a whole significantly!

Loved it

I had planned on skipping this book, as it wasn't the main story or characters I loved. But I read some reviews and comments about how it reveals important information for the next book in the series so I decided to listen.
I'm so glad I did! I loved the story and the characters, and it's truly so important for the main storyline. I highly recommend it!

Still a Great Story

*Spoilers* It was surprising to find out it was a whole book of Chaol and crew but despite no Aelin it was still a great story and a necessary piece to the puzzle. I also loved how it tied in Irene from the Assassin's (pre-book).

Good for what it was

Did Chaol deserve a book to himself? Probably not. Regardless it was still good but left me wondering plenty of times when they were going to cut to what's happening to Aelin.

I also find Elizabeth coupling everyone off very annoying.

What's Chaol been up to?

First of all, I adore this book series. Right from the beginning. Having said that: Chaol is not my favorite character by any means. He's blindly loyal, broods too much, and has made some really bad decisions...which is exactly why we needed this book. I want to go right back to where we left Aelin, but the fact is that this book tied several pieces of information together. We learned so much new information as well, and Chaol got a lot of personal redemption. He's still not my favorite character, but I really like Yrene. We got a ton of character development out of Nezrin, which was needed.
In the end, this will not be anyone's favorite book of the series, but it is a necessary part of the whole.

Excellent

I was reluctant to read this as I am not a fan of its main character, but have to say it was the best one yet!

LOVED!!!!

I was not really excited about this novella, but OMG it was so amazing! I could not get enough of it! I was so excited to finish it but didn’t want it to end at the same time. Definitely a must read... or listen.

An Offshoot From The Main Storyline

First of all, Chaol is my least favorite character in the Throne of Glass series (which is one of my all time favorites) so I wasn't thrilled to get into a whole book about him. That said, there was quite a bit revealed that will be necessary to the next book in the series. I enjoyed the Nesryn and the Prince story line and even the Chaol and Irene story line.

This book lacked the excitement of the others. I feel like these stories could have been part of the other books and didn't need to be so long but I'm glad I know what I know now and CANNOT wait for the next book due out in 2018.

This is basically a stretched out Novella

This book is basically a long drawn out novella. The story line was OK at best and definitely not what I would have used as the next book in the series. It's very slow going and doesn't really pick up.

A-FREAKING-MAZING

I absolutely loved this book from beginning to end! I started it very hesitantly because I hated Chaol, the main character because of his douchebag ways in previous books. (I'll add I loved him the first two, till he changed my mind in book three)

Anyways, the book starts out with Chaol and Nesryn (my least favorite character) going to the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica to see if he can be healed.

Yrene Towers who w've previously met briefly in the Assassin's Blade is featured as a main character as well. Both she and Chaol must work together, both having huge chips on their shoulders from past experiences, both in desperate need of healing. . .

This book gives us lots of information key to the series, and by the end of if I have to admit I have fully forgiven and fallen in love with Chaol once more.

The Throne of Glass series is one of my absolute favorite series of all time! And this book is essential and just as good as the others in my opinion! Aelin makes a teeny tiny appearance in the very last chapter, making the reader squeal and desperately want the next and final book in this amazing series NOW. Sadly, well have to be patient and wait until next year.

I HIGHLY recommend this book! I will write no more as I myself LOVE spoilers, so intern I'm a walking spoiler. lol Hopefully I've given just enough to make you realize if you care for the series at all you MUST buy this book!
