Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy.
While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?
The Throne of Glass series is definitely an amazing, original series about a young women named Celaena who is one of the worlds greatest assassinations. I loved watching Calaena grow throughout the series, and I can't wait to see what will happen to her in the next book. While I didn't like Heir of Fire as much as I did the first two books, it was still a wonderful book.
Heir of Fire takes place right after Crown of Midnight ends. Calaena has left the palace on one of her errands, but at the same time has her own agenda. I hated that she wasn't at the castle with Chaol. I hated so much that they were separated. I also didn't like that Dorian and Chaol weren't being honest with each other and keeping secrets from the other. I love their friendship so much, so it's definitely something I missed in Heir of Fire.
In this installment we are introduced to another leading man-Rowan. I absolutely loved him! Maybe even more that Chaol and Dorian, which I never thought could be possible! In the beginning he was so closed off and kind of a jerk, but I loved watching his walls break down. **Swoon**
We got to see a lot more of Calaena's vulnerable side in Heir of Fire. She blames herself for so much that has happened. I hated how broken she was. We also learn a lot more about her past and family, and what really happened 10 years ago when everything she has ever known was destroyed. These parts were so hard to read.
Heir of Fire ended on such a cliffhanger. I am so excited for the next book. I don't know if I will be able to wait a whole year!
