Review: 5 stars - Wow!
What an action packed third instalment in the Throne of Glass series.

I will admit I’m late to the Sarah J. Maas party, and I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to really get into this series.

There can only be limited discussion about Heir of Fire. SOOOOOOO much happens in this book, and I’ll be honest I don’t know if I remembered all of it until certain storylines fell into place. We meet lots of new characters and discover through third person multiple view points, Celaena’s background, new colonies, enemies and allies.

We have always know Celaena is a strong character, determined in everything she does but Heir of Fire shows us the lengths at which she will go to.

I love the witch covens, that although they are similar, each is different. Their competitive streaks make for an exciting read. Rowan is such a complex character. I thought I had him sussed out at one point, but then it was like he had a complete personality transplant. He has the tradition warrior persona, but when he gets to know the true Celaena, he reveals more of himself and proves he can be a friend as well as a soldier. Mythical and supernatural characters are right up my street so adding witches and the fae into the mix with a kick ass heroine like Celaena and we’re onto a winner.

Seeing a softer side to Dorian was also interesting. I was a Chaol fan from the start of the series; so seeing that Dorian has a friendly personality and that he is willing to put so much into relationship is heart warming. However near the end of the book, we learn he has been betrayed by someone he loves and it nearly brought me to tears.

As I said, there’s only so much I can say without ruining Heir of Fire and the two previous books in the series. What I will say is you are kept on the edge of your seat for the whole story. There is enough action to rival the best Hollywood blockbuster. Intrigue and deception by the bucket load and characters that you can’t help but grow attached to.

A definite must read for fans of fantasy fiction writers such as Maria V. Snyder and Holly Black.
