Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

Title: Empire of Storms
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Genre: YA Fantasy
Type: Book 5 of 7 from Throne of Glass series
POV: Third Person

Aelin Galathynius’ quest of a peaceful kingdom took her on a treacherous road further away from her throne. While slowly forming her court, loyalties and alliances were tested. Though her passion for freedom never wavered, how much more could the young leader take before she buckled under the weight of responsibilities?

Perhaps the gods did hate her. Perhaps this was her test. To escape one form of enslavement only to walk into another.

While this is not my favorite book in the series so far, here is where I have most respect for Aelin. I love the way she strategized her battles. She might be wild and unpredictable but she got things done.

“Because even with our enemies, there’s a line.”
“Then you have your answer.”
“I didn’t ask a question.”
Manon snorted. “You’ve had that look in your eyes all night—if you’re becoming a monster like the rest of us. The next time you kill, remind yourself of that line.”

Beside Aelin, other secondary characters got their own spotlight. I love seeing how each of them evolved and rose up to the challenges.

One major character was missing in this book, but it was made up by the sexiness. A few of them got some much needed release from war matters lol!

A court that wouldn’t just change the world. It would start the world over. A court that could conquer this world—and any other it wished.

Empire of Storms is a story of proving one’s worth. A lot of things unraveled and I am both excited and scared to see how it will all ends.
