Hello, everyone!!! I hope you had a great weekend!!! As you can see I’m back with the Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas!!!! After this I’m writing my review on Empire of Storms and I can’t wait!!!!
Celaena Sardothien is no more…Aelin Ashryver Galathynius is back and ready to take her throne!!! I liked how she stops identifying herself as Celaena and starts to use her real name, Aelin. It shows how she is no longer hiding from herself.
So Aelin is back in Rithfold without Rowan. She hears about Aedion’s capture and she starts to plan his rescue. She also meets with the former master Arobyn Hammel in order to take back the Amulet of Orynth which is the third wyrdkey. When Aelin and Chao finally meat they get into a fight and things between them aren’t very friendly considering Chaol knows how to bring back the magic but he refuses to share it with Aelin.
She gets into the banquet held by the king as a dancer and manages to rescue Aedion by creating an exrposion with the help of the rest of the dancers but before they can leave the palace Dorian appears. Dorian has been living in his own mind the last few weeks without even remembering his own name. A Valg Prince has taken over this body and he can’t keep fighting much longer. Aelin tries to kill him to show Dorian mercy but is stop by Nesryn, a rebel who works with Chaol.
Rowan arrives at Rithfold and informs everyone that Maeve has sent Lorcan after Aelin and the third wyrdkey. After reuniting with each other Rowan and Aelin go hunting for a Valg demon to deliver to Arobyn.After taking the Amulet of Orynth from Arobyn, he spends the night with Lysandra who kills him in his sleep. He deserved that so much especially from Lysandra! I felt that was justice for what she had been through all these years.
Now Manon and the her Thirteen are at Morath when they go to meet the king in the forest. There she sees Dorian and Dorian sees her. The demon inside him is afraid of Manon and her golden eyes, the eyes of the Valg Kings. So when Manon asks him for his name he is able to answer with his own voice!!
One of my favorite scenes in tlohis book is the fight between Manon and Aelin. Both of them are warriors and kind of enemies but when the time came Aelin helped Manon and she returned the favor by telling her not to give up on Dorian.
Aelin, Rowan, Aedion, Lysandra and Chaol are getting ready for the final battle with the king. I am not going to go into details about the battle but I have to say it is really good with lots of suspense and feelings. I loved the end with Aelin and Dorian joining forces. It was a pretty epic battle with lots of revelations. I didn’t see them coming!!!
I’m not going to start about the Manon-Dorian encounter because I won’t be able to stop myself. I LOVE Manon and her I-don’t-care-but-I-secretly-do behaviour. Also, I think Manon brings out a different kind of behaviour to Dorian. Once I review Empire of Storms I am definitely writting a post on Manon so I can express my love freely!!
This is it for today! I have an appointment with my hairdresser to dye my hair!! Wish me luck!!!
Her Majesty The Queen❤❤
