Overview

Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass Series #5) by Sarah J. Maas

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?

Maas has done it once more. She raised my fragile heart, fueling it with fire and love for her characters, her spectacular plot, and her world building so that it burned as brightly as Aelin of the Wildfire. She tested it's strength with the trials of heartache, the battering ram of hope for these beautiful characters. And then she shattered it so thoroughly that I am left yearning for more. Only a few embers are remaining, waiting for the next installment to once again fan it to an inferno. I love her writing style, the way she weaves the characters to life, to become more than just words on the pages. Aelin has grown so much from her first novel, as has Maas' writing. The weight that she carries on her shoulders, the weight of the world, has molded her into a true Queen (albeit a sassy and terrifying one). Rowan, precious Rowan. I wish that I would come across an equal such as you in my lifetime. I was really happy when I encountered that Elide would be a major player, as well as her counterpart, likely and perfectly he is for her. I absolutely loved that Dorian has matured into a character more than fluff. How he is shaping the story, and how he shows his strength. Manon of course is a beautiful character, and we can see how she develops far more in this novel (we were given just the teasings of it in the last). Truly, I could spend days talking about her characters, and how immensely proud I am of how they have shown depth, growth, and realism. Each has played a vital role in forming the plot, which I do have to say was so brilliantly weaved I have to wonder if Maas is secretly Aelin in real life (in her little heart-stopping reveals). My heart is in emotional turmoil from now until the story continues. Bravo, bravo, you have done it again, Maas. Thank you

Holy Goddess Sarah J. Maas literally left me on the edge of my seat gaping in wonder at the tale she has created and her absolute brilliance at the way she weaves it. I was waiting in anticipation at the turn of every page and the only disappointment I have is that I have to wait for the next one! She is just spectacular with the plot twists and revelations of this book. This is one of those stories that will always be playing in my mind and I will always be enthralled. Long live Queen Aelin Ashryver Galathynius!!!

Sarah j. Maas does it again with her latest page turner. I couldn't put it down! Amazing action and character development, there seems to be no limit to the multifaceted Aelin. Can't wait for the next one!

I am in love with this series! The people of Earth are not ready for this intense of a plot. Our brains are not able to comprehend what exactly is going on. Yet, through the twists and turns and threads of this taperstry, it is the seamstress whom gets the gold. She knew exactly what level she wanted Aelin at all along. This book shows what Aelin can do, both with her supreme magic and her cunning skills. I remember first reading this series and falling in love with Celaena's determination, manipulation, and kind heart. I love Elentiya, who fought untill she had nothing left to give, then gave more. Yet, they were called childen then and they are compared to the Wildfire we see before us now. The fact that all of them changed so much... it's like looking back on their childhood from ten years back, but only three years ago. I love how she never forgot Sam; being caught up in this whirlwind can make you forget things of the past, but Aelin doesn't forget her feelings. I love how she never forgot her love of music and is just as enraptured by it as she was at the start. I congradulate Maas on creating such a perfect character with such a perfect plot. After all, all of them look in awe to Aelin at how she puts the pieces together, but greater is she who made the entire puzzle. It is my goal as a novice writer to be as passionate, engaged, and rivoting as an author as Maas is. It is my personal challenge to one day surpass her, though I see very slim chance of anyone topping this in the next four hundred years. I can't help but wonder what would happen if Maas herself wanted to take over the world... though then again, I am quite certain that she is already the master of many reader's worlds.

I am once again sucked completely in to a series in which the author not only refines and perfects her writing as the books continue, but also the characters evolve and change. I need more!

I found Throne of Glass late in the story's life, so I had the pleasure of reading the preceding books to this one in a week rather than over the span of years. Sarah J. Maas entrances me with her detailed and rich world, her plot thickened with lovely heart wrenching turns, and characters developed so much I expect to see them just around the corner. This book follows the trend, it just keeps getting better, but be warned dear reader, there is treachery, and your heart may break, mine certainly did. May of 2018 with the next book can't arrive fast enough!

Sarah J Maas has definitely out done herself again. This series drew me in and had me hanging on every word. Can't wait for the next one.

Sarah J. Maas has easily become one of my favorite authors of all time. She keeps you at the edge of your seat with every chapter and the anticipation of her next book is colossal. I've never waited for so long and try to take my time with a book before, and i cannot wait for what comes next. Aelin is the ultimate heroine and Sarah J. Maas should be acclaimed for this work of art.

Sarah being the writer she is has done it all over again. I started reading this series by chance shortly after heir of fire published. In the time since then I've bought a digital and real copy of every book and novella from the TOG series. I don't know how she does it but Mrs. Maas is one of those authors that debuts once a generation and breathes life into a story that is both captivating and exhilarating. The story of the characters that Mrs. Maas so expertly crafted is enough to make this guy (who only swore by a very few fantasy authors) praise this series to any reader I come across. Mrs. Maas you've done it yet again.
