Review: Heir of Fire

Heir of Fire
Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Celaena Sardothien has withdrawn into obscurity. Even the vagrants see her as one of their own and she can’t escape the thoughts of revenge spinning around in her mind. Although she is bound to serve the King of Adarlan, she begins an exploration that she hopes will lead to his downfall. Celaena’s quest takes her to the land her family tried to keep her from and in order to discover the king’s weaknesses, she must face her own fears and demons. While Celaena is completing her private mission, another force is working and training to fly into combat. Can Celaena complete her task in time? Will she be ready for the war that is looming closer day by day?

Heir of Fire is the third full length novel in the Throne of Glass series. Although events from previous books are mentioned during various times, there is no review weaved into the story which will please some readers and frustrate others. I found the amount of information supplied was enough to jog my memory without making it seem as if I was reading a forced review. Maas has once again taken her strong female protagonist and ever evolving world and has created an adventure story that will capture the attention of male and female readers alike. I do suggest that readers start at the beginning of the series (or with the new novella collection). Readers would be very frustrated starting with this volume and they will not benefit from the additional details given in the other books.
