Sarah J. Maas's New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series reaches new heights in this sweeping fourth volume.
Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she's at last returned to the empire - for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past . . .
She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die just to see her again. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen's triumphant return.
Celaena's epic journey has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions across the globe. This fourth volume will hold readers rapt as Celaena's story builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter the world.
Queen of Shadows summed up in one word:
Sarah J. Maas continually impresses readers with exciting book after book. This year we've been fortunate enough to receive two new Maas releases. And although I felt A Court of Thorns and Roses started off a bit slow, the action monumentally picked up, and by the end of the book, I was in complete bookish love.
Queen of Shadows, the fourth book in Sarah J. Maas's bestselling Throne of Glass series, was no exception. I was and still am in awe of Sarah's captivating storytelling. Like A Court of Thorns and Roses, Queen of Shadows, is action-packed, bewitching, and unputdownable.
On September 1, I immediately headed off to the bookstore after school to pick up my own copy. This book was worth every penny spent; I blazed through the pages in only a matter of days.
Why was Queen of Shadows so riveting?

3. The intricate plot line
4. All the action
Come on, it's a Sarah J. Maas book.
Aelin Galathynius knows how to bring the action.
Look forward to loads of epic battles and mind-blowing brawls.
5. The relationships!
No spoilers here, but there's some romance, some heartwarming friendships forged, and some beginnings, too! If anything, read this book for the complex interactions between characters. There's funny scenes, sad scenes, cute scenes, and of course, those touching scenes that make our hearts burst in happiness.
I can positively say Queen of Shadows is one of my favorite Throne of Glass books yet.
