In the fifth book of the Throne of Glass series, Aelin Galathynius uses every trick up her sleeve to unite the people of Erilea to fight against the looming darkness from Morath. Yet the gods have a bigger plan for Aelin, one that might require more than she is willing to give. Despite the increasingly large cast of characters, Maas was surprisingly able to focus on each character’s development individually. With plenty of action and an intense ending that makes you immediately want to pick up the next book, Empire of Storms gets five stars from me.
Kingdoms will collide.
The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius as war looms on the horizon. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those who don’t.
With her heart sworn to the warrior-prince by her side, and her fealty pledged to the people she is determined to save, Aelin will delve into the depths of her power to protect those she loves. But as monsters emerge from the horrors of the past, and dark forces become poised to claim her world, the only chance for salvation will lie in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.
In this breathtaking fifth installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, Aelin will have to choose what—and who—to sacrifice if she’s to keep the world of Erilea from breaking apart.
