Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing After reading this I'm convinced that Throne of Glass is my favourite series by far. The plot has so much depth and intrigue I didn't want to stop reading. But I did because I had to pace myself, to savor all that I had left for a whole dang year of Celeana and her world. Why? Sarah J. Maas, why do you do this to me?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! My favourite of the three. In Heir of Fire, we are introduced to a large roster of characters, learn more about Erilea, and experience Wendlyn for the first time. I loved the multiple POV’s and the fact there was a lot more character development going on - as the reader, we could feel the emotion and depth. The third instalment of the “Throne of Glass" series is longer than the first two, but this only pushed it to be my favourite of the three. One of my new favourite characters is Manon Blackbeak, an Ironteeth witch. Calaena is my ultimate favourite, but I wasn’t heartbroken when the POV switched to Manon. Through Manon, I was able to learn more about the witches, so much so that now I see them as an almost separate species from the humans of Erilea. Beforehand, I had always thought of them as humans with a longer lifespan and a taste for blood. Furthermore, Manon could always take me by surprise. When we first learn of her, she’s hidden herself in a closet from three male intruders in her house. I knew she was a witch, but she played the role of scared and innocent so well I thought she was a Crochan - the ‘good’ witch. Another surprise was taking on Abraxos and not Titus as her Wyvern. I did not see this coming until the very last moment. I found Calaena and Manon to be very similar, in that they seem to be two sides of the same coin. Manon more easily embraces and enjoys darkness, but both view goodness as this unknown entity - suspicious yet tempting. Calaena wants to do good more than Manon, but doesn’t always feel she deserves it like her dear friend Nehemia. This book was great for showing where the plot might be heading in the upcoming sequels. While it wrapped up the problems from the first three books, it seemed in return to open up more serious problems for the next three. I think one of the most important ones was how the King of Adarlan played a role right from the beginning - particularly his connection to the deaths of Calaena’s parents. The author provides so much detail that I feel more comfortable predicting how things will go down in the sequels. Overall, Heir of Fire is filled with multiple locations and in-depth characters, fitting the part of epic fantasy. Throne of Glass intrigued me enough to continue with the series, but this book has proven the world of Sarah J. Maas is beautiful and breathtaking. I have easily fallen in love! I cannot wait for the 4th book and hope it follows Heir of Fire - multiple POV’s and a deeper exploration into the world of Erilea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maas' ability to weave this tale continues to surprise me (in a good way!). I loved Book 1 and Book 2 of the Throne of Glass series. Typically for me I get bored of a series after the first couple of books but Sarah Maas has been able to enthrall me to date! I've been pleasantly surprised by the continuing character and plot development in this series. At present I'd have to say it is my favourite fantasy series out there. Maas' ability to weave this tale continues to surprise me (in a good way!). I really have no critiques for this series - in fact, now I'm eagerly anticipating Book 4. I highly recommend the Throne of Glass series to anyone who enjoys Young Adult fantasy with strong female characters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the previous books I bought this book the day it came out because I LOVE the first two books in the series! I was going into this book with high expectations but sadly, I didn't enjoy it as much as the previous books and at times, I had a hard time getting into it. There is not as much action and suspense in Heir of Fire compared to Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight. There is also very little romance in this book, as Celaena is separated from Chaol and Dorian, and this takes away a huge part of this series. Overall, it is still a good book but definitely not at the same level as the first two books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Magnificent Comeback?Feels, Romance and Action. Beware of spoilers below. Just warning ya. ;) "It was like being underwater again. Like charging into Nehemia's room and finding that beautiful body mutilated on the bed. Like seeing Galan Ashryver, beloved and brave, riding off into the sunset to the cheers of his people." WOW. WOW. WOW. I'm sitting here, speechless and unable to put my thoughts together after this one hell of a thrill-ride. *takes 5 deep breaths* I don't know what to say, think, act, or be after reading this book. 600 pages of awesomeness? Yes, you've got it right here. As you may or may not have known, this series has SO MANY FANS. There's only a few authors who can grab a reader and intrigue them so easily, and that's what Sarah J. Maas simply does to me, and to thousands of other people. Almost every single review I've read on a book from this series is strictly a rave and fangirled. 4-5 stars, usually. Thankfully I began reading this series a little late, so the Crown of Midnight cliffhanger and book-hangover was worth it to wait for another couple of weeks. But now, I'm dying here. *joins the club of crying, bawling, and angry people* Eh. I can't believe it's all over?for now, at least. I spent only a few hours tearing through this novel (at once in one sitting) because I loved it too much. I felt that Sarah's writing is so coincidental (in a good way) and she purposely creates such horrifying cliffhangers because she wants us to be in mutual pain. Either way, I still love and heart you, Sarah, Celaena, Chaol, Dorian, and Rowan. :) So really, *thinks hard* where does this book began. As Part One, Heir of Ash comes into, Celaena is now at her destination, Wendlyn. Crown of Midnight left off with a crazy cliffhanger and suspenseful ending that we couldn't let go, and we're fast-forwarded into a little off into the future from the past's events. This chick, as we'd expect her to be, has been alone, but strong during this time although the truth behind her and her destiny is boggling her mind to this day. Once she arrives, she meets Rowan, fae prince and warrior, and he hates her immediately. The rumours behind her "assassin past" lies beneath her, and there are some people who know, which can possibly change everything. Although romance wasn't a large aspect of this book, Maas of course had to add it in because we all love Chaol, Dorian, and now ROWAN. Damn. Who'd expect another bunch of awesome characters to be added in? "For the better part of half an hour, the creatures fought in the rainy dark, until those wretched shrieks, turned victorious, and the unearthly roars sounded no more. Celaena and Rowan held tight to each other and did not dare close their eyes for the entirety of the night." Okay. I ship them a little, but I'm still Team CHAOL AND DORIAN. No doubt about it. But finally, Celaena has someone who is so similar and alike to her that she can confide and confess anything to them without some secrets and love mysteries. There were the romance moments between them, though, but I found that it didn't change anything between her and the other men. Just like the other books, the feels came back. And they hit me HARD. I have to admit that I wasn't crying or anything, but I went through such jittery mood swings and anger and frustration and basically all the feels that you have been hit with in the previous books times TEN. So that does make me think... *twirls moustache* Do feels get me to give the book a higher rating? Absolutely, and the feels in this one probably gave this book a point five better as well. I felt like I was on fire for more than half of the time while reading this. I DESERVED THE HEIR. *laughs to self* Get it, heir of fire? I'm on fire? xD This book was huge, no lies. Not everyone can go through a 600-paged book so easily, but I just had to because my love for this series is undying. It almost had everything I was looking for from a sequel to CoM. Character-development?ten thousand checkmarks, perfect plot?almost, action?YESYESYES! Sarah introduced us to two main new characters, with a couple side ones. But really, both Rowan and Manon has their own POVs as well as Celaena and Chaol. Rowan was kick-ass, but sweet and sympathetic at the same time. He suited Celaena perfectly, but I cannot see anything possibly more than just a strong bond and friendship. *twiddles fingers together* Manon was a little too sensible, but you know, she added some sass into the novel?not that we didn't have enough of it beforehand. Celaena was Celaena?perfection and my role model, Chaol was hot, steamy, and wanting, but I wish we had more Dorian. Damn, he was only mentioned a few times, and there were no large scenes incorporated with him. Does this mean that there will never be anything between him and Celaena? "Aedion began roaring?roaring and cursing at the king, thrashing against his chains, but the guards hauled him away, and Chaol was too stunned to do anything other than watch the rest of Sorscha's body topple to the ground. And then Dorian, still screaming, was scrambling through the blood toward it?toward her head, as if he could put it back. As if he could piece her together." I think my love for Dorian is crazy and there's a tiny chance that I might love him more than I adore Chaol, and maybe that's why this went to a four star rating? In the end, this series is #1 and beyond for me. Sarah J. Maas is my favourite author?she stuns me during every chapter, page, sentence, and word that she writes. I guess that's the magic of writing a book that makes you want to fight for a heir of fire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Spellbinding I want to write like this. I'm a compulsive editor, and with nearly everything I read the flaws just jump out at me and diminish my enjoyment - but not here. The relationship that builds between Celaena and Rowan is riveting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leave You Wanting More! Sarah J. Maas is the Queen of YA Fantasy with her amazing series, Throne of Glass. Here I thought the Crown of Midnight was the best, but here comes Heir of Fire which blew it away!! It picks up a few months after Celaena leaves after the death of her dear friend. If you haven't read this series, read it right away! It's definitely addicting. Sarah's world building is so detailed and rich that its one of the reasons it took me a while to finish. After waiting a year for Heir of Fire after that amazing ending of Crown of Midnight. There were so many feels throughout the book and while it was a little slow in the beginning it would begin to go so fast that I did not realize I was almost done the book. Celaena's situation definitely get more complicated but it is understandable with her past. It got darker, but with Celaena's past coming back to haunt her as well as to help with the future and promise to Nehemia. Loved seeing Chaol (since I am rooting for him still (while now pining for Rowan) Maas definitely upped the magic for sure! There was surprises, new characters and more of her past that is revealed. Celaena is definitely one of my favorite characters because she also learns that she has magic. So she goes to her fey aunt, but there is a catch, she must train with Rowan to help with her magic. Rowan is very hot, smart and a warrior. He is the perfect to help train Celaena because they are very alike when they have a dream. Secrets of his pasts are also revealed but you will understand why he did them. Back at the Glass palace, Chaol and Dorian are dealing with the King of Adarlan, figuring out his plans. Chaol is looking into why magic disappeared from the kingdom and who he trusts. He deals with his last few days with Celaena from Crown of Midnight. His friendship with Dorian has been strained. Dorian, I felt was more left out in the beginning but he begins a new relationship with his own powers and who he trusts. Heir of Fire will make you want to read the next book (hopefully soon). Manon is a character who is feisty and her point of view gives insight of what is happening on both fronts of the book. She is an evil character but her history is interesting. I can see her playing a major role in the next book. I loved Heir of Fire soo much that I am so excited for the next book! Need it right now especially after that ending! This installment of this amazing series will not disappoint you since Maas knows how to hook you into her books! It is the perfect fantasy for people who love strong heroines. Read this series, you will not be disappointed!
