Aelin Galathynius has vowed to save her people ― but at a tremendous cost. Locked within an iron coffin by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin must draw upon her fiery will as she endures months of torture. The knowledge that yielding to Maeve will doom those she loves keeps her from breaking, but her resolve is unraveling with each passing day…
With Aelin captured, friends and allies are scattered to different fates. Some bonds will grow even deeper, while others will be severed forever. As destinies weave together at last, all must fight if Erilea is to have any hope of salvation.
Years in the making, Sarah J. Maas’s New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series draws to an explosive conclusion as Aelin fights to save herself―and the promise of a better world.

(5 / 5) Really, it is sad this series is over! I still hold this as her best series. Maas’ writing easily grabs me and pulls me in. Once again, she is the master at character development and making each character stand out.
This book has a lot of battle scenes and the turmoil. Once again, we see people coming together, relationships standing out and people giving their all for what they believe in. Well done!
The intimacy was somewhat lower on the scale than some previous (books 5 and 7 being the highest) but battle scenes and gore were higher.
