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 her world.

Is it terribly surprising I’d choose Queen of Shadows for my WoW this week?! I mean, just LOOK AT THE COVER!!

I need, need, need, NEED this book in my life ASAP! I’ve become obsessed with this series, and I can’t wait to see what happens next. This blurb terrifies me, though! Sarah J. Maas isn’t afraid to exterminate a few characters along the way… *sobs* I need Celaena to live! And Chaol. And Aedion. Oh, and don’t forget Dorian! He’s really begun to grow on me… And, I also need my ship to survive - Chaolaena will make it through, people!! Oh my gosh, September seriously can’t come quick enough!

What do you think? And what are you waiting on this week?


  1. I just started this series so I can't say much, BUT I DO WANT IT? Hahahah. I have to finish the rest of the books first. The cover reminds me of a video game hehe. :)

  2. Obviously I need this book in my life. I try to keep it out of my head but sometime I just get feels from Heir of Fire I compartmentalized. Seriously, I'm terrified for everyone. Manon, Celaena, and AEDION, and CHAOL, and DORIAN! AHHHHH!!!! *melts into a puddle of feels*

  5. i only read book 1 in the series but i am collecting all the books so i can marathon them soon. i love the covers of this series though. i am so glad they decided to do away with that first cover of throne of glass and use the same cover art as the UK. they are so much more fitting :)

    hope you can stop by my WoW Post.
