another day, another review. I’ve finished Tower of dawn more than a week ago. to be honest I wasn’t at all that excited to read it. I didn’t know how I’d enjoy it without the main cast in it. well, I was wrong! I loved it!!

name: throne of glass- 633306347

author: Sara J.mass

genre: YA fantasy 

pages: 672

publishing date: september 5th 2017 

publisher: bloomsbury 



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


Like I said earlier, I wasn’t that excited about this book at all. I was upset that the final book was pushed last year to be published this year because of Tower of Dawn ( it was originally planned to be a novella not a whole book).

but of course in order to read the final book I had to read this one. plus, everyone liked this one more than previous one- Empire of storms- which made me a little more excited to read it. in the end I like it more than I expected.

the book follows Chaol after the events of queen of shadows, as he is one of the main characters in this series and he was there from the start. I loved Chaol at first, but then things happened and he was the same character I fell in love with. and let me tell the events weren’t that compelling for me to see why he became the bad guy. so reading this book and seeing him deal with his inner demons, seeing why his arc got the way it is and basically all the the things that went wrong with his character, and finally him dealing through it all and finding the peace he deserved was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read. this book cured his character’s arc in a way that made me very pleased, and for that I’me very thankful.

the new characters were AWESOME!! one of things Mass excel at is creating characters you can’t help but fall for. I loved Yeren and the royal kids ( but not the eldest!) and basically everyone else.

the world building was incredible. the southern continent was rich, both in it’s history and the land itself. the southern continent wasn’t mentioned thoroughly through the series, it was completely new and compelling.

finally, I was glad this became a book and not a novella. Chaol deserved to have his book and him recover from everything that happened to him. the secrets that were revealed were well plotted and trivial to the plot, and they were mouth-agape- what- the- type of secrets ( even though I was spoiled about some things ;)).
