Badass Books: Heir of Fire

It seems my reading goals for the year are going well--of course I always tend to start off strong then fizzle out, but not this year! Not if I can help it. So onto my review of the second book of 2015: Heir of Fire the third in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah Maas.

I'll be leaving out the summary because I don't want to give anything away from the first two books in the series. But click that link up there if you want to summary from book one.

Why I read it: That's an obvious one--because the first two books were so damn good. The Throne of Glass series has quickly become one of my favorite (if not my favorite) fantasy series I've ever read. I'm still kicking myself for overlooking it because of the original cover, but at least I can admit my own judgmental downfalls.

If you like fantasy, you really ought to pick this series up, it's phenomenal.

ZOMG Yes! I loved the side of Celaena that we got to see in this book. Her character growth throughout the series has been a wonderful journey, but this has been my favorite arc in her growth so far. Also, there's magic in this one, and I love magic.

Beyond that, I really loved the new characters we got to meet here--both in the capitol and in Celaena's journey. I absolutely love Rowan. I knew I would when we first met him, he's my kind of character--broody, dark, sarcastic, fabulous. By the end I adored him. If there any ships to be had, that's the one I'd like to sail.

kthxbai I said this already, but I'm going to say it again: Read these books. They are worth it. They are so, so worth it.

Obviously Sarah Maas gets the chiweenies.


  1. I'm about halfway through this book right now, actually. I've adored this series, and I agree with you on Rowan.

  2. This is one of my favorite series too, and HEIR OF FIRE certainly did the other two books justice. It felt like Sarah J. Maas really expanded Celaena's world in this one, which makes me super excited for the next books. I loved Rowan too and for the same reasons. Kind of hard not to though! So glad you enjoyed it as much as I did! :)
