Celaena has survived deadly contests and shattering heartbreak—but at an unspeakable cost. Now, she must travel to a new land to confront her darkest truth . . . a truth about her heritage that could change her life—and her future—forever. Meanwhile, brutal and monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, intent on enslaving her world. Will Celaena find the strength to not only fight her inner demons, but to take on the evil that is about to be unleashed?The bestselling series that has captured readers all over the world reaches new heights in this sequel to the New York Times best-selling Crown of Midnight. Packed with heart-pounding action, fierce new characters, and swoon-worthy romance, this third book will enthrall readers from start to finish.
I have a terrible habit of beginning a series towards the middle or the end and I did exactly that with this book but I am so glad I did. Heir of Fire is a captivating read that I devoured much quicker than anticipated because let me tell you, this is a big one. A whole 576 pages. The author’s way with worlds is riveting. I hung onto each and every word, eagerly wanting more. A few things I didn’t love were that there was little to no action until the last forth of the book. The pacing was slow but honestly I barely noticed. Celeana is fierce and I was drawn to her immediately, even when all she was doing was drinking wine on the roof tops.
As the story progressed and I learned more about Rowan, Chaol, and Dorian, and so many others, I found myself becoming invested in their lives. There is so much I feel like I’m missing from earlier in the series that I am diving into book 1 now but I am so glad I read Heir of Fire. What I loved most about this book is that is was character driven from the very beginning.
I will absolutely be devouring the rest of the series and look forward to the next installment.
