Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3)Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG. This book was amazing and I am going through a roller coaster of emotions right now!

I really loved the first two books in this series, but this one, I absolutely, without a doubt, can claim as one of my best books for 2014.
I didn’t know what to expect with Celaena leaving at the beginning of the book, I had the thought, ‘what kind of story can it be without Dorian and Chaol’, but, OMG what a story it was. Dorian and Chaol still played a role in the story – and I loved the introduction of the new characters who interacted with them (but that ending – brutal).
There was a fair amount of focus on the witches and their war games and at the beginning I wasn’t quite interested in this part of the story but as soon as the Wyverns were on the scene, I got very interested. While the witches are evil, unfeeling, soulless creatures, I have this small hope that Manon, one of the key witches, ends up being a hero in the next book!
And then moving onto the main story of Celaena, taken to her Aunt Maeve looking for answers, and then having to learn how to use her magic before she can get the answers. And Rowan, just Rowan….. Rowan, who has to train her. Watching Celaena and Rowan’s relationship develop was fantastic. It was not about swoony-times but about friendship and trust and allowing yourself to be vulnerable…. and also about using your fighting skills and magic to kick some evil monster butt.
This book held the answers to so many questions, about Celaena and her past, about the King of Adarlan, about the fey, and even now, reading the last sentence of the book, it gives me tingles.
