Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—In this installment of the fantasy series, Celaena's true identity has been revealed. While on an assassin's errand in Wendlyn, she spends her days drinking and brawling, lost in the pain and anger caused by Chaol's betrayal and Nehemia's death. Queen Maeve of the Fae has different plans for Celaena, and sends Fae Prince Rowan to fetch the heroine and train her in the ways of fairy magic. Celaena begrudgingly agrees by striking a bargain: she learns magic, and Maeve shares her knowledge of the Wyrdkeys and how the king might be defeated. Meanwhile, in Adarlan, Chaol enters a tenuous alliance with the king's general, Adeion Ashryver, to support the underground resistance movement, and Prince Dorian continues to try to control his own newly found magical abilities, or risk being executed by his father. Readers will devour Maas's latest entry. The plot remains fast paced, balancing scenes of intense action with emotionally wrenching interactions between characters. Intriguing backstories continue to develop, vacillating between thrilling and heartbreaking, leaving readers to guess where alliances truly lie. While the story continues to be told from multiple perspectives, the addition of new characters brings tangled new relationships and dimension to the plot. Those unfamiliar with the previous titles will have a difficult time keeping up, but this is a must-purchase for libraries owning Throne of Glass (2012) and Crown of Midnight (2013, both Bloomsbury).—Kelsey Johnson-Kaiser, Columbus Public Library, WI

5.0 out of 5 stars This series keeps getting better!
By Melissa Mitchell on September 15, 2020
“She was the heir of ash and fire, and she would bow to no one.”—Sarah J Maas (Heir of Fire)

(5/5⭐️) Sometimes it takes tough love to uncover true potential. Celaena wants to run from who and what she is. After everything that’s happened, she has given up on life. Until Rowan Whitethorn shows up. Charged with orders to train her, he’s got no patience for her antics. From enemies to friends, they must battle the barriers of her magic. When Rowan encounters a string of killings along the shore, he and Celaena discover the arrival of something sinister, an ancient threat from another world. It’s coming for them, and Celaena’s magic is the only thing strong enough to save them.

Wow! What a whirlwind adventure! I could not put this book down. The addition of new POVs kept me turning pages. Each time I tumbled into one character’s story line, I was switching to the next. And while these characters were all part of a storyline woven together, they were were unique in their own way, with their own flaws and their own challenges.

Heir of Fire was progressively better than the first two books. The plot and character development stood out the most. It also felt more mature than the last two. Celaena’s development really impressed me. At the beginning, she was running from herself. This became more and more evident as she struggled through her training with Rowan:

“You collect scars because you want proof that you are paying for whatever sins you've committed. And I know this because I've been doing the same damn thing for two hundred years. Tell me, do you think you will go to some blessed Afterworld, or do you expect a burning hell? You're hoping for hell--because how could you face them in the Afterworld?”

But in the end, she faced her demons. She accepted her fate. This challenge was woven seamlessly into the main plot. And the plot itself was gripping. My favorite moments were near the end, when Celaena faced Mave. I felt like she’d conquered something huge. It was extremely fulfilling.

I also really enjoyed Celaena and Rowan’s relationship development. I’m a huge fan of enemies to lovers, and while they aren’t exactly lovers (yet?) they are very close. He starts off as such an ass! I disliked some of the things he did. But we learn his reasons, and he softens up. It was a testament to the author’s ability that she made me hate him before loving him. I think Celaena felt the same by the end:

“Gods, he was brilliant. Cunning and wicked and brilliant. Even when he beat the hell out of her. Every. Damn. Day.”

I cannot think of a single thing about this book that I would change. This story was gripping, the characters were fleshed out. The plot was riveting. The pace kept me turning pages. And each time I set the book down, I could not stop thinking about it. I’m still thinking about it, days later. I want to pick up the fourth book SO badly but I’m waiting a few weeks. That wait is going to be torture! I highly recommend this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not my favourite, but still brilliant!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 28, 2020
I really enjoy SJM books, and as a general rule I’m hooked from start to end, and this isn’t so much an exception to that as just... it never seems to grip me as much as some of her others. It’s still a damn good story, but for some reason I just don’t adore it as much as the others.

It’s a necessary book, and it does improve the image of the world she had built, it widens it and deepens the characters personalities, I really do enjoy it.

I enjoy the story, and the changes to the situation. I like the relationships we see building and the new characters that are introduced, even when I don’t particularly like them. (You know, when you enjoy reading about characters even when you kinda want to punch them in the face? That type of scenario...)

There is a lot to be said for the story and the changes that come as a result of this one, but at the same time I still kind of feel like it’s a filler book. It’s the one that Maas needed to write to get it away from the original assassin/cinderella type tale, and weave it into a thicker, more complex story.

That being said, I LOVE where this story takes us to! And when I first read it I was curious what was going to come next, with any SJM book there are twists, turns and surprises throughout, and that ending leaves you reading to dive into the next book.

If you haven’t read them before, all I can say is STICK WITH IT because by the end of the book you’ll be excited to delve into her world even deeper.

I do love how SJM doesn’t have Celaena instantly recover from her grief, instead she works through it. She’s quite frankly a knob at times because of it, but I like that. I like that it takes her time to come to terms with it, and she reverts at times and struggles to cope in many ways. She isn’t a typical “my friend died. I cried and now I’m over it” Character we see so often.

We learn more about where our Assassin is from, and she learns more about herself and her limits, she begins to become that an even more badass Character than we originally adored her for being. Take all that sass and attitude, and throw in the magic, and OMG I want to be her! But ya know... only the fun bits. 😂

Manon. Just OMG I LOVE HER. I love that entire element to this world, it gives it a whole new twist! The first time I read about them I have to say I wasn’t sure what I thought, but now knowing what is coming... it’s bittersweet. Knowing what’s coming I just want to give Manon the biggest hug! The first time I read this though, I had reservations. I remember reading them bits and feeling a bit like SJM was trying desperately to merge two totally different stories.

Dorian continues to be a sweetheart, and between him and Rowan... omg the feels in this book 😍😭😍😭 I’m glad that SJM didn’t just ignore the scenarios Celaena left behind her when she traveled, that would have annoyed me. Instead we see what is going on there at the same time, and I cried. I did. So much happens while she isn’t there and there’s so many “WTF?!” Moments along the way! But then, SJM really is the queen of twists and turns.

But for myself now, this book leaves me excited because I know that the next is my favourite in the series!

Heir of Fire continues to improve the complex world SJM has crafted, we get to know our current characters better and there are surprises galore within it! Well worth reading, and certainly needed to understand all that comes after!!

And besides... this is the introduction of my BookBoyfriend hahaha if you lived Rhysand, you’re gonna ADORE this guy!
