Heir of Fire : No. 3 Paperback
Part of the Throne of Glass series
Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien's only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan's Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did.
Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn.
Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King's Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place.
If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan's biggest threat - and his own toughest enemy.
While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies.
Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?
This third novel in the Throne of Glass sequence, from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J.
Maas, is packed with more heart-stopping action, devastating drama and swoonsome romance, and introduces some fierce new heroines to love and hate.
Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones.

Review by wyvernfriend
Celaena has to try to find more help to defeat the king, to gain her throne. A throne she doesn't really want but realises that she will have to take for the sake of everyone. The King is using dark magic, Dorian is trying to discover more about his own abilities and everything is in flux.I thought this was the end of the trilogy, nope, part-way through and I realised that there weren't enough loose ends heading for tied up, there were ends forming as the book was progressing and more plots and complications finding paths through. I did find it a bit confusing as well as it has been a while since the last book in the series and I was somewhat lost with what was going on, but I caught up eventually. I do want to know what is going on and what is going to happen, but I'm not sure about my reading stamina with it. I really want occasional refreshers on what has gone before.

OH MY GOD!!!!!! SOOOOOO AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! This author truly has a talent for putting in perspective Celaena's self-pity and torturous yet conflicting emotions. At these terrible, wallowing-in-the-worst-points-of-yourself moments, I was kinda waitin' for her to jump back up and THWACK that jerk King!!!! At points it brought me to tears and at others... let's just say people in the Galapagos islands could have heard my brash, yet slightly wheezy, laughter! The book was seriously awesome... and yet, it definatly needs a pick-me-up afterwards. Celaena was actually making ME depressed when thinking about Nehemia. But it really puts into perspective what the author wants us to REALLY see about Celaena: she is human . I know that kinda sounds a bit wacko, but hear me out. When everyone was saying she was a monster, when she HERSELF was describing HERSELF as a monster, she was doing the most humane thing possible: blaming herself and grieving. Yeah, I know it went on for nearly the WHOLE BOOK, but it just goes to show how much she cared for her friend!! So don't mean and inconsiderate and think that she just NEEDED TO GET OVER IT, which she kinda did, but be thoughtful and think about WHY the author would write her that way. Soz for the long comment but this is a seriously good book!!! GO READ IT!!!
