There’s no doubt that war with Hybern is likely to happen, and so Feyre must do all she can to protect Prythian as well as the Mortal Lands from being destroyed. But this is no easy task, especially as Prythian is divided into Courts who have no solid allegiance to one another. And so secrets must be revealed, and pride must be swallowed if the High Lords of Prythian wish to save their lands, and everyone close to them. A Court of Wings and Ruin brings readers a powerful and sensational conclusion to the end of a brilliant series.

Series: Throne of Glass #4

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy,

Main themes: Magic, Love, War, Personal Growth

Rating: 5 stars

When I’d finally decided to read Queen of Shadows, it had been more than a year since I’d last read Heir of Fire. I was a little worried about trying to get back into the Throne of Glass world in case I’d forgotten key parts of the story but honestly I felt like I was returning home with this book! I forgot how much I adored this world and its characters. 

In this book, Aelin Galathynius returns to Adarlan, and embarks on a dangerous mission where she must risk her life in order to save her friends and family, and bring down the King of Adarlan. We also follow Manon Blackbeak, who’s ability as Wing Clan leader is truly put to the test by the secretive errands and questionable decisions she’s forced to make. Queen of Shadows reaches new heights in this incredibly action packed series.

#1 King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard30226723

This is the very much anticipated third instalment of the Red Queen series! With the cliffhanger that left me with so many questions at the end of Glass Sword, I really cannot wait to dive into King’s Cage. I’ve also kind of (really) missed the Silvers and their petty politics back at the palace, so I’m looking forward to seeing how they’ve been handling recent events. Plus, have you seen all the snippets Victoria’s been teasing us with? If not, be sure to check them out by clicking here because they’ve got me even more hyped for the release! There’s just a month to go, so mark 9th February in your calendars! Read more
