Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass book 4) by Sarah J. Maas; 645 pages
Warning! Summary and review will contain spoilers from the previous books! Don’t read if you’re not this far in the series!
Aelin is back in Rifthold without her magic. Chaol is working with the rebels who once threatened to kill him. Dorian is under the control of a Valg Prince. And Adeion is scheduled to be executed to lure Aelin out of hiding.
This book was so fast paced from page one. I love how all the characters are back together in Rifthold, even if they’re not all working together.
I kinda like Aelin as a character more than I liked Caelena because she has that fallback identity to use if she needs to. Either way she is such a bad ass character. It is super weird to have her and Chaol butting heads constantly.
And poor Dorian … it broke my heart to read some of the little chapters told from his perspective. It was tough to read about his struggle with the Valg prince.
It was also a lot of fun to have Lysandra back in this book. She added so much to the story. Plus a big secret came out about her that I totally did not see coming and I loved it!
And that ending! Ahhhh it was so good! So action packed and, again, I did not see it coming. Not yet, anyway. I thought it might come at the end of the next book but it’s just got me more excited to read Empire of Storms! I can’t wait!
