The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don’t.
As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.
Aelin’s journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?
Celeana / Aelin has always had a big place in my heart, she’s my hero, she suffers a lot and she is brave and strong. In Empire of Storms we are discovering that she’s really very smart, she planned a lot of things in advance and now my heart is bleeding for her.
I will try to talk about my feelings and nothing else because you must read this book, I know some of you will be disappointed because they want Chaol and Aelin together but they aren’t mean to be together.
First this book is told by Aelin, Rowan, Dorian, Manon, Aedion, Elide and Lorcan POV. It’s a thing I like because all these characters are interesting, they all have a choice to made, some very difficult choices.
I like Aelin because she is a great woman, she wants to fight for her people and even when her people rejected her, she is still strong and brave for them, and she will find the help they all need. This girl is my hero.
Rowan is the best sexy man in this book, I love him and I love his way to protect Aelin, but I also love that he can let her be the queen and he is proud of her, even if sometimes she’s infuriating him.
Dorian is learning with Rowan how to use his magic and in EoS he has feelings that he can’t be trust but it’s not true. I like his interaction with Rowan and I also ship him with Manon.
Manon in QoS wasn’t a character I really like but in EoS, she is all grown up, she takes decisions for her future and the one of her thirteen, a decision which will cost her a lot. But in the end, she made the good choice and I like to see her on Abraxos and their relation is very intense. I also like her when she is with Aelin and Dorian.
Aedion is a good general, he supports Aelin but in EoS he has doubt. I like the way he try to protect Lysandra from everything even if she is strong and she can take care of herself. He will also have to deal with his father and his feelings.
Elide and Lorchan POV wasn’t the best, Elide is a kind girl, she wants to find her queen and for that she will do all she can. Lorchan hates Aelin so it can’t be good, I won’t tell more because maybe you will love them.
In EoS Aelin proves to herself, to us and to all the people in her country that she can help them even if they don’t recognize her.
In her adventure since the beginning of the series, she lives a lot of awful things, Sam, Endovier, Nehemia, Maeve, The King and so much others things and sadly this isn’t the end.
It’s hard to put feelings on EoS because this book is so much better than the others, Aelin is a real queen now, and her team is a good one, a loyal one and I really hope for the best in the next book, because I cry a lot in the end of Empire of Storms. I’m so chocked that Sarah J Maas can put Aelin to all these horrible things, she deserves a happy end and right know I don’t see how that is possible, so I will just hope for a miracle.
One thing I recommend if you haven’t read The Assassin’s Blade with the novel, read it because you will find some characters in EoS, and that’s a wonderful thing.
Quick word: The best book in the series so far.
