Just wow. That word sums it all up. I will have you know, that this book has you wanting so much more. So, so, so much more. And unfortunately, we don’t have that luxury…yet. Sarah J. Maas’s 6th book of the Throne of Glass in 2017, hopefully. Anyway, back to the here and now, in this book Maas steps up her game. Another love story, another action story, another set of shackles, another age of mystery. We dive straight into Heir of Fire.
I honestly loved it. I barely read this book a month ago, and have already re-read it. And that rarely ever happens. It is like Ranger’s Apprentice with tons of twists and turns, and of course, with Celaena Sardothien. How much more do you want? Above, I wrote, Another set of shackles. You may be wondering what I mean by that. Well, here go’s.
You know how Celaena, all her life, has been bound by something. At some point, we all are. First, she knew she was to be queen when she grew up. Then, she was rescued by Arobyn Hammel, and shackled there. Then, she was taken to Endovier, where she was bound by physical restraints. Next, she was taken to the King, and bound by the King and Dorian and Chaol. Finally, she is in Wendlyn and Doranelle, and bound by Prince Rowan Whitethorn, and Queen Maeve. How coincidental. All her life, Celaena has been bound to something, or someone. Now she just my have the chance to be free.
“You cannot pick and choose what parts of her to love.”
“I claim you, Rowan Whitethorn. I don’t care what you say and how much you protest. I claim you as my friend.”
“And then I am going to rattle the stars.”
“Their hands clasped between them, he whispered into her ear, “I claim you, too, Aelin Galathynius.”
“Because I am lost,” she whispered onto the earth. “And I do not know the way.”
“She was Aelin Ashryver Galathynius—and she would not be afraid.”
“You collect scars because you want proof that you are paying for whatever sins you’ve committed. And I know this because I’ve been doing the same damn thing for two hundred years. Tell me, do you think you will go to some blessed Afterworld, or do you expect a burning hell? You’re hoping for hell–because how could you face them in the Afterworld? Better to suffer, to be damned for eternity and–”
“I claim you, Aelin. To whatever end.”
“It would not take a monster to destroy a monster – but light, light to drive out darkness.”
