Synopsis: She was the heir of ash and fire, and she would bow to no one.

Meanwhile, brutal and monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, intent on enslaving her world. To defeat them, Celaena must find the strength to not only fight her inner demons but to battle the evil that is about to be unleashed.
Review: I absolutely love this book and it was even better on re-read. And yes most of the reason I loved it was Rowan but another big part of why I loved it was the transformation of Celaena to Aelin. It wasn’t something that happened over night, it was something that happened slowly, and progressed during the events of the book, and by the end of the book she accepted that Celaena was a dream of hers that wasn’t meant to be, and Aelin was who she was and truly meant to be, and she is amazing. Seriously Aelin is everything. I can’t even think of her as Celaena anymore, Aelin is so much more of a powerful, strong person than Celaena was, it’s such a huge difference. Also we get Aedion, he is Aelin’s cousin, and omg he’s just as awesome as she is. When I first read this I didn’t really care for Manon and her Thirteen, I didn’t get the hype around them, but I think most, if not all of my attention, was focused on Rowan and how amazing him and the fae are. On my re-read I paid more attention to Manon, and even Aedion, and my love for them grew, a lot. Like crazy a lot. Seriously this series just gets better book by book.
