Book Talk: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas (ToG #5)

Hello, my dear readers!
With Empire of Storms Sarah J. Maas wrecked me for good. Everything about it is just intense. So while I piece my heart back together, let’s talk about the fifth book in the Throne of Glass series!

The Plot:

The final battle is near. Aelin is trying everything in her might to buy Terrasen and thus her court a chance at survival. But that is easier said than done. There’s always a price to pay…

The Rating:

Well, Sarah J. Maas really killed me with this one. What the hell was she thinking? Finishing the book with a cliffhanger like that is just pure evil. I am beyond glad that the series is already fully published and I can continue immediately. I feel truly sorry for all the fans who had to wait for the next part!

Believe me when I say many bombs are dropped in Empire of Storms. I spent I good portion of this novel with my mouth hanging open in disbelieve. Although I am not 100% that everything makes perfect sense, I was thrilled by all the plot twist and can’t wait to find out how the story will end.

The hardest decision this novel brought up is which couple to ship the hardest. I have a few thoughts to share on that matter, but I’ll save that for another post.

With Empire of Storms SJM really ripped my hard to shreds, so I’m a bit scared about what might come next. If the “situation” at the end of the book isn’t resolved soon I will throw a hissy fit.

It’s not a perfect novel, but Empire of Storms is a book you’ll devour. The characters are relatable and impressive, the different storylines all keep you on edge. SJM managed to create an entire world that is so vivid, it’s almost palpable.

The next installment is already waiting for me as I burned through Empire of Storms. The TOG series is so fascinating, so far there wasn’t a single book I didn’t wholly enjoy!
