WoW - Heir of Fire



"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

Heir of Fire

September 2, 2014

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.




Let's start with the fact that I'm a big fan of assassin stories and the Throne of Glass novels are some of my favourites. As a result, I cannot wait for this one to come out. The ending of Crown of Midnight was a killer and I'm not sure how I'm going to last until book 6. This is going to be a long series and I can't wait to enjoy them all. Team Chaol!

P.S. If you guys know any other great assassin or high fantasy books to keep me company until this one comes out, name them in the comments.

What Are You Waiting On?

    1. Chaol is amazing and just when I thought I had his future all figured out we got a huge twist. I can't wait to see where Ms. Maas goes with the series.

    1. *High five!

      No! I hope not, waiting 6 years for the whole series to come out is bad enough. From what I can tell I think it's set for this fall though.

  5. I cannot wait for this- already have it on pre-order! I had a severe book hangover after finishing Crown of Midnight; at least I have The Assassin's Blade to tide me over for a while

    1. I know what you mean. I think I'll have to give The Assassin's Blade a chance.

    1. I really like the cover but I don't think it can beat Crown of Midnight which was gorgeous!
