Years in the making, Sarah J. Maas's #1 New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series draws to an epic, unforgettable conclusion. Aelin Galathynius's journey from slave to king's assassin to the queen of a once-great kingdom reaches its heart-rending finale as war erupts across her world. . .<_o3a_p>


Aelin has risked everything to save her people-but at a tremendous cost. Locked within an iron coffin by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin must draw upon her fiery will as she endures months of torture. Aware that yielding to Maeve will doom those she loves keeps her from breaking, though her resolve begins to unravel with each passing day.<_o3a_p>


With Aelin captured, Aedion and Lysandra remain the last line of defense to protect Terrasen from utter destruction. Yet they soon realize that the many allies they've gathered to battle Erawan's hordes might not be enough to save them. Scattered across the continent and racing against time, Chaol, Manon, and Dorian are forced to forge their own paths to meet their fates. Hanging in the balance is any hope of salvation-and a better world.<_o3a_p>


And across the sea, his companions unwavering beside him, Rowan hunts to find his captured wife and queen-before she is lost to him forever.<_o3a_p>


As the threads of fate weave together at last, all must fight, if they are to have a chance at a future. Some bonds will grow even deeper, while others will be severed forever in the explosive final chapter of the Throne of Glass series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY HEART IS IN PAIN BUT I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT Okay. This series is one that I have been following over the past 5 years. I reread all the books in the series before this book before reading this one in a span of 4 weeks so everything was very fresh in my mind. I read this final book in less than 2 days, staying up all night to read, (keep in mind this book is 1000 pages long), because I could not bear to tear my eyes from the pages because of how amazing, captivating, and action filled it was. This book did not dull for a single moment. Not one second. There are multiple storylines here following the various characters we met when the series first began, 7 books ago. Every single chapter is so brilliantly written and not a single sentence is wasted. Each chapter end left a cliffhanger, keeping you engaged as a reader the entire time, anxious to know what was happening over the other storylines, while worried for the one you were currently reading. The main characters of Aelin, Rowan, Lorchan, Elide, Fenrys, Gavriel, Aeidion, Lysandra, Chaol, Yrene, Manon, and Dorian were shown going through so much for the simple hope carried throughout this series: the promise of a better world. If you are new to SJM books, or even someone who picked up the series and discarded it halfway through, I promise you this ending is worth reading the other books for. The bonding between the characters and their love for each other, carrying them through the hardships they faced is shown strongly throughout the book, having the reader hope despite all odds for their happy ending. The writing in this book is honestly mind blowing. The little acts of kindness, tiny events you never thought twice about, the subtle foreshadowing layer throughout the other books all comes together in this explosive conclusion to the series in a way you never saw coming. Reading all of come to light quite honestly left me with goosebumps and hooked to the book throughout the entire 1000 pages. I'm also not going to lie, I cried MULTIPLE times. Like so many times. The reunions between characters, the deaths of some, the sacrifices, the ending, all of it has be sobbing. Like the last 300 pages was just continuous tears non stop. Anyways, go read this book if you want to be left in an emotional wreck like I am right now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A long awaited ending This was a great ending. It was not perfect though. It hit all the right places but left me wanting a little bit more. Some of the "epic" conclusions to plots that have been spanning over 4 books felt a bit rushed and/or mediocre. However, the feels were real, and I was a total sucker for the ending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 STARS!! I'm so sad to see this epic story come to an end. Aeling Galathynius Ashryver has come a long way since we first meet her in The Assassin's Blade as Celeana Sardothien (which I highly recommend reading first). Few are the heroines out there who compare in level of sass, badassness and inner strength. Few are the heroines who ARE flawed like Celeana, flawed like we all are. She's an example in that way, an example that you can have a badass heroine in your book who ALSO has flaws. She sees them, acknowledges them and that makes her stronger. She's breakable but chooses not to let life break her. That's admirable and I think something we all, at some point in our lives, have to live by when times get tough. She and her friends over the course of 8 books have become like a family to me, a part of me--I's hard not to after reading eight novels the size of a small house, haha! This concluding novel was everything I hoped it would be. It IS a big war, but if you enjoy that sort of thing and political stuff (always with a nice dose of romance), I think you'll really like this book. Sarah J. Maas manages to weave many storylines in Kingdom of Ash in a way that felt natural. I'll admit 100% of me hopes this is not truly the end and that she'll announce some spin-off books. I JUST LOVE THIS WORLD TOO MUCH, ALL RIGHT?! Haha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this!!!! I received this last installment for a Christmas present and I couldn't wait to finish the book I was reading so I could get started on the Kingdom of Ash. I was not disappointed, it was amazing and was so sad to see it end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Perfect End The ending was everything you could want from a series. A great way to conclude the series. There were plot twists, and lots of moments where my nerves got rattled. Sarah really knows how to pull on your heartstrings. Loved the book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic ending Sarah J Maas has never disappointed me when it comes to her novels, and this was no exception. Kingdom of Ash was full of heart. Every part was action packed and full of character development. Every character faced hardships that only made them stronger and the emotional and physical journey's that they went on only made the characters more relatable. I love this book and its characters and I will never stop recommending it to my friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My heart is so full. This entire series was such a joy to read and I was completely in the world of Sarah J. Maas' world. This book was a wonderful ending, it was everything I had hoped for and I am so sad its over. Though I wish we had MORE of Aelin's point of view (but I'm biased, as she's my absolute favourite character). The character development for each character was satisfying in the closing book, I look forward to re-reading the series again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Perfect Ending Totally worth the read if you have read the rest of the series. If you haven't yet gotten to this, what are you waiting for?! There is so much drama and action mixed in with humorous and romantic scenes; all these layers add such depth to the novel, so if there is a character or story plot you may not like (which is HIGHLY unlikely) there is always something else to read about, because there are so many characters and so many different storylines. It gets a little long, but that just makes it even more worth the buy; you can take your time reading, write some notes as you go, and pause often to take it all in (because there is a lot to take in, my friend).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Epic Conclusion! What a great and satisfying ending to this wonderful series! It's amazing to see how far these characters have come and grown since the beginning. The plot is fantastic with something constantly happening as it switches between the different characters and their many struggles across the continent. Lots of epic battles, as well as some interesting insight into the villains. It is also great to see not only Aelin, who we all know is a fierce and brave hero, but many of the other characters get to show their bravery and get a time to shine. Although there are plenty of heartbreaking moments, fans of the series will be satisfied with this conclusion to the series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The End to A Phenomenal Series THIS IS A SPOILER-FREE REVIEW OF KINGDOM OF ASH MY THOUGHTS: 1. I TRIED not comparing Kingdom of Ash to A Court of Wings and Ruin, but IT JUST KEPT HAPPENING INSIDE MY HEAD. I have to say, in terms of the PLOT, this book took the cake. There was something of substance happening any every point, even though the first 200 or so pages could have been cut out and/ or condensed. There were multiple wars, happening across the continent, with different characters and it was INTERESTING, to say the least. 2. ACOWAR, EVEN DURING THE WAR, WAS A LOVE STORY BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE, BUT KINGDOM OF ASH WAS THE LOVE STORY BETWEEN THE CHARACTERS AND THEIR DREAM OF A BETTER WORLD, AND IT WAS JUST A BETTER BOOK TO READ. 3. Sarah J Maas’ writing, though, pretty much remained the same. There was a repetition of the same thing with different synonyms when she described an emotion or emotional experience. There were a lot of places where there periods were used that SHOULD HAVE BEEN commas, semi-colons or even hyphens being used and that’s to my UNTRAINED EYE. 4. So, basically while the writing was mediocre, the PLOT INTRIGUED ME. Add that together with the fact that I’d been WAITING TO FINISH THIS SERIES, I managed to finish this 988-page monster in three days, and even shed a tear or two at a particular Yrene Towers scene and the king of magic she thought during that time. 5. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO START A PETITION STATING THAT AEDION ASHRYVER WAS THE REAL HERO OF THIS SERIES AND THAT HE DESERVED SO MUCH MORE THANKS. Would I recommend this series? Yes! It has a lot of flaws, and it’s definitely not for younger teens, but the plot, twists and character development are absolutely phenomenal! 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Epic Conclusion I've been head over heels with this series for years. It's been a huge inspiration for me, and I'm sad to see it end, but this finale was worth the wait. Characters old and new returned for a final battle against two vile enemies, and their struggle was one of the most breathtaking things I've ever read. It was a nonstop ride that completely filled all of its nearly 1000 pages. The action was heart-pounding, the romances were swoon-worthy, and the ending left me in tears. I can't get over the strength of these characters. The choices they were willing to make, the sacrifices they did make, it was nothing short of epic and what I expected from this beloved and unconventional court. Aelin, of course, shone like a beacon the entire time and lived up to her name, refusing to bow down and despite her trauma and vulnerabilities, continued to fight to the bitter end with her friends and mate near to her. I could go on and on about how much I love these characters and what they did––Rowan will always have my heart and is the stuff of dreams, Yrene and Elide had courage beyond what I imagined––but I was blown away by Manon for her spectacular arc, and Lysandra turned out to be one of the toughest characters in the TOG world. The myths, lore, magic, and battles, were no holds barred. I literally stayed up an extra two hours past my bedtime to keep reading, because I knew I wouldn't sleep until I reached the ending. It was that impactful, and the ending that intense. I definitely spent the last ten or so pages crying, because I'm sad to see this series and these characters go. Their hardships and trials were nothing short of legendary, which Aelin being one of the most powerful and inspiring women in all of Young Adult fiction. I'll never forget this ending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I finished this book yesterday, and still I can't get my thoughts to make sense. The finale definitely didn't disappoint, and I miss this series already. Looking forward to next summer when I can binge read this series!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Adventurous Finale! What a wild, jaw clenching and heartstopping journey. I'm only talking about this book, not even the whole series! For the Throne of Glass series as a whole, I have not been devout. I've liked some of the books and I have disliked some of the books in the series. I knew I would finish the series at some point but I didn't expect to go out and get a copy of the finale during the week it was released. I also didn't expect the emotions that came with reading this book. Half of it was the dread of the unknown and anticipation! I went through each chapter expecting all of the characters to be killed off (I'm not saying whether that prediction happened or not). I literally had to put the book down every couple of chapters because the suspense was too much for me, made even worse by the alternating and changing of points of view. Without giving any spoilers, this was an epic finale. I think fans of the series will appreciate this as a concluding novel. I appreciated this novel and I would not necessarily consider myself a huge fan. I must admit, that those looking at this novel critically, may see a lot of the events of this novel as being too....convenient and I do recognize that critique. But I think it was a really good ending to a series and kept the suspense and anticipation throughout. It may have been a tad bit longer than necessary (approaching 1000 pages) but I didn't have moments where I was overly bored while reading. If anything, those moments of boredom may have been necessary to relieve some of that tension that was building due to the unknown. A very good ending to a series that has had both highs and lows for me. I'm happy to say goodbye to this series and these characters on a high note with a feeling of being content on how this series has ended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fails to Stick the Landing This will delight the majority of SJM's fans, but for my money this finale lacks depth and stakes. Can't really get into it without spoilers,but safe to say this doesn't live up to the promise of the first 4 books.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from mediocre I can already tell that this book is going to be as mediocre as the last two (queen of shadows and empire of storms). let's just hope aelin isn't as annoying in those books as this one
