A brilliant addition to the Throne of Glass series
An amazing addition to the Throne of Glass series, we get to see what happened to Chaol and Nesryn as this book runs parallel to the events in Empire of Storms.
I quite liked Chaol as a character when we first met him in Throne of Glass but then I thought he turned into a bit of an idiot as the series went on. I was really apprehensive for what would happen in this book, what with his injury and whether it would be healed or not or if I even wanted it to. But it went sooo much better than I thought and I'm actually so pleased with the ending and how everything turned out. It's just really fitting and works so well.
As always, the writing is fantastic and I love the ships. We learn more of the Southern Continent and its ruler, the khagan, and his princes and princesses who made fantastic additions. The Torre healers are explained more and Yrene Towers is a wonderfully brilliant character and healer who gets assigned to help Chaol, who we get to see a lot of, inevitably.
With some twists and new bits of information revealed regarding the Valg and the war along the way, this book does not disappoint with delivering more action and secrets revealed. I thoroughly enjoyed Chaol's story and I like him a lot more as a character now! It's a story of healing in every sense of the word, and setting up for the war that's about to begin and end as all of Erilea is threatened by Erawan and a newly discovered enemy...
