Gr 10 Up—Picking up where Heir of Fire (Bloomsbury, 2014) left off, this work follows Aelin as she returns to Adarlan to rescue her cousin from execution, free Prince Dorian from the Valg demon inside of him, and kill the King of Adarlan to set her people free. Told from many different viewpoints, this highly anticipated installment of the series will live up to every one of fans' expectations. Strong, clever, and resilient, Aelin expertly manages to rescue her cousin from the castle with minimal casualties. Then, with the help of her loyal friends and the Fae Prince Rowan, they devise a plan to destroy one of the king's towers to free magic and take back their powers so they can assassinate the evil King of Adarlan. Meanwhile, Manon, the Wing Leader of the Blackbeak witch coven, struggles with her grandmother's order to select a coven of witches to breed with Valg demons to please the mortal Duke. Aelin and Manon cross paths in surprising ways, and everything comes together in one thrilling and high-stakes climax that will leave readers on the edge of their seats. With a full cast of three-dimensional characters and a slew of emotionally riveting scenes and shocking realizations, readers will be daydreaming about this book long after it's over. VERDICT Beautifully written prose and brilliantly crafted plots come together in this entry of the awe-inspiring fantasy series that will leave readers anticipating the next volume.—Candyce Pruitt-Goddard, Sno-Isle Libraries, Marysville, WA

“Fans of the high-fantasy series likely won't mind the protracted story at all, packed as it is with brooding glances, simmering sexual tension, twisty plot turns, lush world building, and snarky banter. . .

Although this is the downtime of the series, it's also one of the more emotional. Plots and schemes have been caught up, and now the characters have time to concentrate on feelings they couldn't act on before. Emotions that will also decide where they stand in the war. I really loved this one because of my paired up peeps. My choices are fine lol I'm also happy for the character development. You wouldn't recognize some of the characters, and I feel like it's for the better. Certainly made them easier to love, if anything.
I don't particularly have any complaints with the book. It wrapped up very nicely and was glad we weren't left with a cliff hanger. There are a lot of lingering questions and answers to doubted, but I'm excited to see where those lead in the next two books.
Dorian tries to hold on, Manon starts to question the blind obedience, Chaol struggles to accept Aelin for who she is... the lives tangle together to create a book that you just can't set down.
