Tower Of Dawn… Oh My God!!!
Imagine a girl who finished reading her book at 3:00 AM, weeping with joy and Sadness. Tissues all around her, feeling an overwhelming sense of contentment yet frustration (the book couldn’t be long enough..duh.. but also because the next book comes out in 2018)…. THAT’S ME. The Girl.
I admit, I was kinda torn between excitement and a little apprehension when this book was going to be released, only because Aelin or Rowan wasn’t going to be in it. Especially after how the previous book ‘Empire Of Storms‘ ended. BUT, Sarah J. Maas did not disappoint ..at all! This is a 500+ pages book, a thick book but never once did I feel the need to skimp pages- She weaves a spell on her readers and keeps you captivated from the very first sentence.
This book is the journey of Chaol Westfall and Nesryn Faliq and their adventures in Antica. I would say that, I highly recommend you read the other books in the Throne Of Glass series first even The Assasin’s Blade (which is a novella| The Assasin’s Blade # 0.1-0.5), to fully enjoy the book.
Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken. Nesryn Faliq is a former city guard of Rifthold. She worked with Aelin and the rebels to overthrow the King of Adarlan. She is cold and unyielding yet she has a strong sense of honor.
After the coup’s success, she became the Captain of the Royal Guard while Chaol became the hand of the new king of Adarlan, Dorian.
Chaol’s only shot shot at recovery lies with legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica- the stronghold of the southern continent’s mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing it’s rulers to ally with them.
–Small spoiler ahead–
This adventure was meant to be done together. Chaol and Nesryn were meant to figure out what and where ‘home‘ was,together. But little did they know that their journey of adventure, atleast this adventure in Antica, was paved to be taken differently.
I admit, It would be so easy for me to spill out all the spoilers of this book. But I wouldn’t. I want you, as readers, to enjoy this book- every surprise, every angst, every fear, every love because regardless of these things… this book was beautiful! This is the type of book you’d re-read again and again. You won’t regret reading this book and I guarantee that you will be grateful that I didn’t spill out the spoilers.
If you’ve made it this far… comment below and we can fawn all over the characters!
