I've very much enjoyed Sarah J Maas' previous books. I was looking forward to an epic closure of this trilogy. Though the storyline itself was okay, the cringeworthy sex scenes and constant sexual tension between everyone and everything made this book close to unbearable to listen to. At times I had the feeling that I was fast forwarding through half of the book when trying to skip the way too detailed sex scenes. Unfortunately the sometimes very slow moving and repetitive storyline did not make up for the uncomfortable and constant make out sessions.

The day my mother was killed, she told my father I wouldn't speak again, and she told him if I died, he would die too. Then she predicted the king would sell his soul and lose his son to the sky. My father wants desperately to be king, and I just want to be free. But freedom will require escape, and I'm a prisoner of my mother's curse and my father's greed. In a land purged of enchantment, love might be the only magic left, and who could ever love...a bird?

Interesting story. The characters are kind of annoying though. I wish there was less whining.

The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don't. As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

I couldn't wait for this book to finally come out. I must say that I'm rather disappointed. The author couldn't quite recreate her epic story telling of the previous books and instead turned this one into softcore porn. Way too many and too detailed love scenes. I hope in the next book we will get to read about done more epic battles and the love making details are kept to Pg 13.

Not the best thing I've ever read but not the worst thing either. The author gets tangled up in too many details which makes this story kind of long and drawn out. The concept of the story is good though. And of course it end on a cliff hanger so you buy the next one.
