SERIES REVIEW: Throne of Glass (Books 4 – 6)

In the interest of easily accessing the reviews I’ve written for the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas, I have decided to combine them into 2 larger review – books 1-3 (review is now available here) and books 4-6. The Assassin’s Blade  and Tower of Dawn will remain independent, as they are not directly part of the Throne of Glass timeline.

This second half of the series review will feature Queen of Shadows, Empire of Storms, and Kingdom of AshOverall, I feel that Maas really found her stride in the second half of the series. With world-building (mostly) out of the way, and a plethora of well-developed characters and plot points to choose from, Maas was able to focus on weaving an intricate plot that, at times, left me reeling in awe and wonder.

SERIES REVIEW: Throne of Glass (Books 1 – 3)

In the interest of easily accessing the reviews I’ve written for the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas, I have decided to combine them into 2 larger review – books 1-3 and books 4-6. The Assassin’s Blade  and Tower of Dawn will remain independent, as they are not directly part of the Throne of Glass timeline.

This first series review will feature Throne of GlassCrown of Midnight, and Heir of Fire. My feelings about these first three books are torn, as is evident in my individual reviews below, but overall I feel that without these three books, Aelin’s story, and the general tale Maas’ has woven, would have been less impactful and certainly less cohesive, as a significant amount of character development and world building occurs in these three books.

SERIES REVIEW: Rebel of the Sands Trilogy by Alwyn Hamilton

In this Series Review, I have amalgamated my previous reviews for Rebel of the Sands, Traitor to the Throne, and Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton, so that my readers can find all the information regarding this series quickly and easily in one place.

I have also included a brief review of the series as an entity at the end (following the three individual book reviews), and I must remind readers of this – while the individual book reviews are (generally speaking) free of any major spoilers, the later books will include potential spoilers from the earlier ones.

Gold Seer Trilogy by Rae Carson

With the release of the third and final book in the Gold Seer Trilogy by Rae Carson, I felt that it was finally time to review the three books in this series. I first picked up Walk on Earth a Stranger when its stunning cover caught my eye in my local bookstore, and from there on in I was hooked. In her newest series, Rae Carson introduces readers to a strong heroine, a cast of intriguing characters, perilous roads, fantastical twists, and a slow-burning romance.

In this review I will provide a mini, spoiler-free review of each individual book, then discuss the series as a whole.

The Selection Series by Keira Cass

While its a bit juvenile now, I’ve been following this series since it began, so I couldn’t just not find out how it all ended (yep, I’m that person). So, I’ll be doing a mini-synopsis and review of each of the five books in the series (excluding Happily Ever After, the novella collection, which I never did read). And hey, Moms (and Dad’s), don’t let the face-value content of this book turn you away- unlike The Bachelor (which clearly played some inspirational roll), these books are 100% PG rating approved!

The series takes place 300 years in the future in a country called Illéa (formerly the United States) which has a strict Caste system. When the Heir comes of age, a contest, called The Selection, is held to earn the right to be the next Queen (or King).
