Rating: 5 hearts




In the next installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, follow Chaol on his sweeping journey to a distant empire.

Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.

His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent’s mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.

But what they discover in Antica will change them both—and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.


I was afraid to read this book because Chaol had disappointed me in the past but as you can see I was delighted with this volume. Chaol is rising in my esteem and I really like Irene, Nesryn and Sartaq so it helps.

Chaol and Nesryn went in search of an army, but not only that, Chaol can no longer walk and he went in search of someone to heal him. Irene is that person, she has powers that will help her and they will get to know and appreciate each other. Meanwhile, Nesryn will try to find a solution to their problem and convince Sartaq and his family that they must help Aelin and Dorian.

I will stop there on the subject and talk to you about what I felt, Chaol becomes a little more mature as the book progresses, he comes to understand what is blocking him, and Irene helps him to understand why he does not heal and what he does not forgive himself. I liked that Chaol, who we have always seen as a strong character, feels a little weak and useless, it changes and feels good. He came with Nesryn but life is not a long quiet path and their relationship will change over time.

Yrène is a young girl that I really liked very much, she is adorable, sweet but she has her little character, she doesn’t let herself be stepped on and knows how to put Chaol in his place. Nevertheless, she will help him, their relationship will evolve in a way that I appreciate.

Nesryn is also an important character in this book and she has a great place in the discovery of their enemy. I also really liked the way her relationship with Sartaq is created and evolves, they are made for each other, much more than Chaol and her, mainly because I find that Sartaq has more respect for her than Chao I.

One thing I really like about this series is its atmosphere and we discover every time that Aelin is a very intelligent person who has planned everything in advance, she is one step ahead of everyone else, and all the events that have followed one another in previous volumes, even those in the news, are linked.

I loved this book and I’m glad the last one is coming out soon and I don’t have to wait too long.

Quick word: A book to read absolutely.

J’avais un peur de lire ce livre car Chaol m’avait déçu dans le passé mais comme vous pouvez le voir j’ai été ravie de ce tome. Chaol remonte dans mon estime et j’aime beaucoup Yrène, Nesryn et Sartaq donc ça aide.

Chaol et Nesryn sont parti à la recherche d’une armée mais pas seulement, Chaol ne peut plus marcher et il est parti à la recherche de quelqu’un pouvant le soigner. Yrène est cette personne, elle a des pouvoirs qui vont l’aider et ils vont apprendre à se connaitre et à s’apprécier. Pendant ce temps Nesryn essaiera de trouver une solution à leur problème et de convaincre Sartaq et sa famille qu’ils doivent aider Aelin et Dorian.

Je m’arrête là sur le sujet et je vais vous parler de ce que j’ai ressenti, Chaol devient un peu plus mature au fil du livre, il arrive à comprendre ce qui le bloque, et Yrène l’aide à comprendre pourquoi il ne guérit pas et ce qu’il ne se pardonne pas. J’ai aimé que Chaol, que l’on a toujours vue comme un personnage fort, se sente un peu faible et inutile, ça change et ça fait du bien. Il est venu avec Nesryn mais la vie n’est pas un long chemin tranquille et leur relation changera au fil du temps.

Yrène est une jeune fille que j’ai vraiment beaucoup aimé, elle est adorable, douce mais elle a son petit caractère, elle ne se laisse pas marcher sur les pieds et sait remettre Chaol à sa place. Malgré tout elle va l’aider, leur relation va évoluer d’une manière que j’apprécie.

Nesryn est aussi un personnage important de ce livre et elle a une grande place dans la découverte de leur ennemi. J’ai aussi beaucoup aimé la manière dont sa relation avec Sartaq se créer et évolue, ils sont fait l’un pour l’autre, beaucoup plus que Chaol et elle, principalement parce que je trouve que Sartaq a plus de respect pour elle que Chao l.

Il y a une chose que j’aime énormément dans cette série, c’est son ambiance et on découvre à chaque fois qu’Aelin est une personne très intelligente qui a tout prévu à l’avance, elle a une longueur d’avance sur tout le monde, et tous les évènements qui se sont enchainés dans les tomes précédents, même ceux des nouvelles, sont liés.

J’ai adoré ce tome et je suis bien contente que le dernier sorte bientôt et que je n’ai pas trop à attendre.

En bref : Un tome à lire absolument.
