Reread Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas

2018-09-29 09.49.29 2.jpg

“The world, will be saved and remade by the dreamers”


Synopsis:
The long path to the throne has just begun for Aelin Galathynius. 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. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?


Plot:
This book was amazing the first time around but managed to be even better the second time around!? I’m shook.
Despite remembering the majority of the plot; there were a few things I’d forgotten and it was so nice to rediscovering them.
The pacing, the action, the character, everything was just great.
I love the character interactions + the friendships. My heart.
The subplots were as good as the main plot; the side characters are SO great in this series.
It got me in such a great mood for KoA, I was both absolutely terrified and eager to get to it.
If you’ve read this you know it ends on a killer cliffhanger, then the next book is Tower of Dawn which is centred around Chaol. I wasn’t super keen on it, to be honest.
After finishing EOS I was desperate to pick up Kingdom of Ash, so I read a summary + the wiki page to remind of the stuff in ToD and jumped in KoA. (review for that soon)

Characters:
Aelin: I love Aelin. She’s so badass in this one and I feel so awful for her at the end, my heart breaks. AELIN DESERVES HAPPINESS.
I swear to god. I’m going to get my heart broken in KOA, aren’t I?

Dorian:
My favourite!! Will forever love my selfless Dorian.
Praying, that Dorian survives the series. Literally, please SJM…
Dorian deserves better.

Manon: More tolerable in this book. Didn’t despise her presence. However, I love the Thirteen. They’re so amazing!! Manon is so much better with them.
However, I am not a fan of her ship. #Sorrynotsorry

Rowan:
I officially love Rowan. I didn’t like him in Heir of Fire, he became likeable in Queen of Shadows but now I love him. Rowaelin is goals.

Elide & Lorcan: This duo. Oh my god. I live for them. I was constantly wanting more of them and couldn’t wait to get back to their chapters.
