“The world will be saved and remade by the dreamers.”


The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don’t.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Aelin’s journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?

Personal Experiences

I read this book while on vacation. Believe me, this book was so suspenseful, so intoxicating, that 701 pages breezed by in 2 days. Fast-faster than any other-paced with love and action. Side stories, and so much more. God, I can’t wait till the next book comes out. AND THAT ENDING!!!


“Even when this world is a forgotten whisper of dust between the stars, I will always love you.”

“He was hers and she was his and they had found each other across centuries of bloodshed and loss, across oceans and kingdoms and war.”

“Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen, knew the time would soon come to prove just how much she’d bleed for Erilea.”

“I’d walk into the burning hell of heart itself to find you.”

“Aelin Galathynius had raised an army not just to challenge Morath, but to rattle the stars.”

“Aelin had promised herself, months and months ago, that she would not pretend to be anything but what she was. She had crawled through darkness and blood and despair-she had survived.”

“It is not such a hard thing, is it – to die for your friends.”

“A court that wouldn’t just change the world. It would start the world over.”
