Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed it I wasn't sure if I would enjoy this aside story but it stands well on its own and is yet ties into the series. Definitely don't read this one out of sequence.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still Don't Like Him Although this book was well written I mainly read this spinoff understand more about what was going to happen in the next book. I know that SJM probably wanted us to like Chaol or forgive him, but I still hate that piece of trash. There was no explanation on why Chaol acted so vile to so many people. -- I might be petty or something but I really only read to see Aelin and Rowan's names.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SPINOFF This book was so thoroughly detailed and so exciting to hear more about the Valgs but it definitely wasn't as interesting as S.J.M.'s past books. I think this was written to entertain her readers while she wrote her new book. I also think it was for cash. It wasn't really interesting and I caught myself becoming bored. The only thing that kept me reading were names from other characters-"Aelin"- but it was well written and a nice read overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow-pacing and a bit dull I think this book was a great addition to the Throne of Glass series; we got to discover some amazing characters and it definitely made me understand and appreciate Chaol more even though I still don't like him. The story had a very slow pace and it didn't pick up until about 75% of the book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ready for this? Well well well Chaol, we meet again. This time you are strapped to a chair and that fucking attitude gone. I’ll be clear Chaol is the worst, I hate him. But then I read Tower of Dawn. Chaol goes with Nesryn to The Southern Continent, in search of aid for the war against the Valg and also to heal his broken spine and be able to walk again. This book is very long, there are parts that I thought were to repetitive, but at the same time I could understand why. For example, in order for Chaol to walk again, they had to heal his back and also his broken self, a soul healing if you will, to come to terms with all the crap he did and how can he make it better. To me this part was crucial in forgiving Chaol for his very existence. This is a new world, beautiful and very hot, everyone is sweating all the time (yuck) a lot of new characters and a lot of politics. I’ll just mention one new character and most likely a game changer: Yrene Towers, a healer blessed by the Goddess, with the power to heal the “Valgness” off of a person. I always thought the relationship between Nesryn and Chaol was forced, like whatever lets hook up kind of feel, and now with the introduction of these new characters I came to terms to the fact they are not meant to each other. I started this book with no hopes of information for the happenings in the Northern Continent, WRONG. Valuable information is discovered, information that is crucial to Aelin winning the war, at some point my jaw hit the floor so hard I forgot the boring parts of the book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PLOT TWIST This plot twist in this book had me SHOOK. Also Chaol and Yrene are literally goals and I love their bickering. I ADORE YRENES SASS and it's paired well with Chaols stubborness. <3

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 10/10 would recommend Not gonna lie I wasn't totally interested in reading this book since Chaol was one of my least favourite characters, but I am SO GLAD I did!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tower of dawn I admit that I was not very excited by this book. I do not like Chaol very much and to read a whole novel without Aelin, Rowan and the others was not that appealing. I was positively surprised with this story. The beginning was well written, a lot of new characters that I would have like maybe to get to know a little more. I found it a little long near the middle, the action was slow, but it was up to my expectations in the end. Overall, it was a necessary book in the serie and it was better than what I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend Going into this novel I wasn't the hugest fan of Chaol, but as I got reading there was a huge character development and I am so proud of him! Also, I went into this book with one ship, and came out with another! This book is very important to the storyline and I discovered many truths.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh My Gosh! Beautiful writing. Even this book focus on a few side characters that I don't really care about, there is something about Sarah J Maas writing that makes you fall in love with this characters. At the end of this book, I actually didn't mind these characters that I had problems with in the previous books in the series. Can't wait for the last book to come out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Amazing I was so disappointed when I realized this next book in the series wouldn't be continuing where the last one left off (on a mad cliffhanger!) and I was really doubtful that I would enjoy it because I came to sort of hate Chaol. But oh man, it was amazing. Sarah J. Maas is just a genius as an author. She made me care about a character I hated. And it added SO much important information to the entire series. The action was fantastic too. I can't believe it but I loved this book! Go read it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome I LOVE chaol so so so so so so much!!! such a fantastic story
Date published: 2018-05-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not to be overlooked!! Beyond the common knowledge that Maas' world-building and writing abilities are impeccable, this novel demonstrates her capacity to take characters I've always felt were under-developed and prove me entirely wrong! Not only was "Tower of Dawn" heartbreaking, exhilarating, hilarious, and fantastical, I believe that this novel was necessary to fit a lot of the pieces into the puzzle before we get to that all-anticipated final instalment!!
Date published: 2018-05-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW I wont lie, I didn't anticipate I I was going to love this book. I wasn't sure how I felt about an entire novel focused on Chaol, with our regular squad nowhere to be seen but HOLY CRAP. I was genuinely surprised by how much I adored this book and I honestly think it is my top three in the TOG series. This is a must read for SJM fans, even if you arent a big fan of Chaol, SO much happens in this novel that sets us up for KOA. 10/10
Date published: 2018-04-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not disappointed! Yes, yes its about Chaol and we all know how some feel about him. I loved this book personally I felt like it is a necessary book to carry on the series. I fell in love with the new characters and I know you will too! #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book This book was way better than I was expecting. At first I was disappointed that it was a book just about Chaol, I didn't really like him before this book, and just wanted to read more about the other characters. The story was amazing, it somehow managed to add so much to the story so late in the series, and completely changed my perspective of Chaol.
Date published: 2018-04-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it! So I love all of Sarah J Mass s books however Tower of Dawn seemed like a drag to read in the beginning. I had to push myself to keep on reading it (which never happened before). If you are thinking of putting the book down, DONT. i repeat DO NOT! The book gets so much better!! I do loved the story and the new character that came into play!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good World Building I've been reading this series for a while now and its definitely had its high and low points for me. But what I did enjoy about the Tower of Dawn was its world building and the introduction of some new characters. Overall it was good read, even for someone who wasn't originally the biggest fan of Chaol.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprising I went into this without a ton of expectations but am really glad this book happened now! I was curious to see how Chaol’s story would unfold, but also a bit wary that his character growth would be tied to his current disability being cured. I just love how much character development Maas takes the time to put into her stories because everything becomes 1000x more realistic and emotional. The story does take a bit to get moving, though, and I wasn't totally into it until about 1/4 of the way through. So hang in there... Also, this didn’t really feel like “Chaol’s book” to me because Nesryn and Yrene both have equally important stories and POVs. (Aaaand there's one more POV at the end that made me SO EMOTIONAL for all of 2 pages). So you don’t necessarily need to read The Assassin’s Blade before this, but I'd absolutely recommend reading this before the final Throne of Glass book. This isn’t some side story. So many important things are revealed! Chaol’s healing felt a lot like Aelin’s story in Heir of Fire with how she had to really break and face everything she was before she could rebuild herself and move forward with a purpose. He has to choose whether to stay in that darkness and give it power or to forgive himself. I was also glad he had a chance to let himself process everything with Aelin… and seeing his total devotion to Dorian was so sweet. Basically, the story hit every part of the healing that was necessary to get Chaol’s character mentally back in the same fight as everyone else. In the previous books he was a confused, lost character who was starting to not fit in with the flow of the rest of the story for me because he wasn't sure what he was for. Now he's an equal player in the war to come and has a clear purpose. Chaol learns to find a new way through life and his entire take on his “disability” is transformed along with his self-worth/image.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good! Waited awhile to read this since I was pretty skeptical. Wasn't sure about it at first, since it's a different point of view, and was originally supposed to be a novella. I was pleasantly surprised! Gives some nice insight into what's going on in the southern continent, and some character revelations too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Take it or leave it I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this book as the main character wasn't one of my favorites from the series. It was good and I enjoyed reading it but I would have bee n as happy with it as a novella instead of a full blown novel.
Date published: 2018-02-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from it continues... I waited an full year for this book to come out after what happened in the last book. I was not disappointed at all. I read for two hours straight to finish this book... and WOW

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful Story I was quite disappointed with how Sarah J Maas wrote off Chaol's character but I have to say that she definitely redeemed herself with this story. I thought the writing was absolutely beautiful and you really got to follow Chaol along his journey of healing which really contributed to his character growth. So excited to continue this series!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from really good I really like the series with Aelin. THis instalment is great in the sense that you get to see what happens else where. Gives you also a good insight into Captain Feliq and Chaol's lives. However it toke me at least 200 pages to get really into it because lots of details and important elements needed to be put in place. Great caracters (Hasar) and lots of new info though some of it is really ovious (the paper in Yrene's pocket who it comes from, Shen, ...). Finally the idea of attaching the healers to the Valg like the author did was different and made me think of The Faculty. Enjoy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Addition to the series This was a really great addition to the TOG series. It was nice to know what was happening with the characters we missed out on in the latest TOG book and it honestly kind of made me like Chaol again. It wasn't my favourite book in the series but it is a must read if you have read the other books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tower of Dawn I loved the parts with Neshryn, not so much those with Chaol. What he does in the end shows he has not learned anything.
Date published: 2018-01-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from EVERYTHING I WANTED AND MORE I thought I would never love Chaol Westfall again.. not after Queen of Shadows. BUT SJM reminded me of why Chaol was my first love in the ToG world. This book is her best work. The world building is rich and expansive, the characters are complex and flawed but you love them so much it hurts. Yrene was such an incredible new voice, but having Chaol at the forefront of the story again was everything I needed. This adventure was next level and has me DYING for the last ToG book!!
Date published: 2018-01-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chaol Redemption I felt like there was just so much important information and plot twists and I'm so glad I got those. I am also happy to say Chaol redeemed himself. I used to love him so much, then Queen of Shadows happened. I like him again. It was a good book. #plumreview

Date published: 2017-12-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from READ IT! EVEN IF YOU HATE CHAOLLLL I know there are people out there who hate Chaol as I use to be one of those people. I hated the way he treated Aelin, especially how he placed all the blame on her when it was him who left Dorian to face the king alone. But after reading this you see his thoughts you see his self-hatred... I basically understood him after reading this. Also, there is some vital information you find out in this book that you need in order to understand the last book, so you have no choice. Plus its not all about Chaol, there is Nesryn and Yrene as well, dont just throw their stories aside due to your hate.
Date published: 2017-12-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It wasn't what I expected Found this book hard to get through, Chaol is one of my most favourite characters of all time and this was a disappointment for me. I think Sarah has too much going on right now and it's showing. The beginning books in the TOG series were well written and wonderful along with the first two books of ACOTAR.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from yes and no! It took me soooo long to actually get into this book. I started to read it, then i put it down, and then picked it up again. Once I got to around page 250 i read the rest of it straight through in 2 days. It needed up being a really good book. I think I was just put off having to learn about a whole cast of new characters. I so missed the original characters while reading this book. BUT!!!!! I can't wait to read the final instalment of this series and see how the big war turns out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing! Where do I even begin after that… It took me forever to finish this book (although it is 660 pages). I was pretty apprehensive when I heard that Chaol was getting his own full fledged novel, especially when I heard it would push back the release date of the final ToG book. Although, this one does contain essential information for the series so it is a must-read. I really enjoyed Chaol’s healing journey and seeing his redemption of sorts. “Using the chair is not a punishment. It is not a prison, he said. It never was. And I am as much of a man in that chair, or with that cane, as I am standing on my feet." I was so excited to see so many characters from The Assassin's Blade- this book really is a gem in the series and if you haven’t read it yet go do it. I also feel like I pronounced everyone and everything from the southern continent wrong in my head… Like where does SJM get the inspiration for all these character names? Also there’s like a hundred characters to keep track of in the series now and I feel like I need to go back and re-read the series already. The last chapter absolutely killed me and I don’t know how I’m going to wait until September 2018 to find out what happens next!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic read!!! This is such a good book! Great to find out what happened to Chaol and Nesryn on their journey to the Southern Continent. I was disappointed when Chaol was left out completely from Empire of Storms but this book defiantly made up for it! An exciting adventure and mystery with lots of great new characters, as well as reappearances of characters from previous books. Lots of amazing character development, along with shocking discoveries about the enemies Erilea faces. This book should not be missed. Can't wait for the next book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! This was a really good departure from the series. I liked having the action move away from Aelin, and it was really lovely seeing Chaol. His struggle with his disability and healing was written very realistically and he also had a great emotional journey and character development.
Date published: 2017-11-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute must read in the ToG series. Sarah J Maas books are my all time favourite books to read. I bought two of each. One Indigo exclusive (the art work is great!) and the UK paperback edition. Tower of Dawn is an absolute must read. It would be detrimental to your grasp of the overall story to skip this book because "I don't like Chaol". Tower of Dawn nurtures the character development for many other characters in the Throne of Glass series. It brings Chaol to light with his raw and honest, human reaction while processing the world around him. I am so glad I read this book. It's SO GOOD!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED THIS!!! I almost wasn't going to read Tower of Dawn and after finishing Empire of Storms I just needed to know what happens to Aelin after the hell that broke loose in that book!! :( I wasn't the biggest fan of Chaol but after reading ToD I LOVED his POV and his perspective on things! Plus him and Yrene was the CUTEST thing ever!!!! I can't wait for the Westfalls to get into the mix in the next book! Also I was so mind blown with the whol Maeve thing and her involvement with the Valg... I didn't read Assasins Blade so I didn't really know that Yrene had actually met Celeana back in time but I literally called that after Yrene explained the note and the bag of gold in the middle of ToD and the last chapter on the boat I was literally freaking out!!! :) So overall I totally loved it and I need more SJM after the Fireheart Chapter... :( Bhavika

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adds to an establish series and was very fun to read Even though this is supposed to be a novella that turned into a novel, I totally recommend this to anyone who is reading the Throne of Glass series. It might seem like it's a side story that can be skipped but I totally thing it adds to the story. Where we left off with Empire of Storms, I wasn't too happy with how Aelin had become. Somehow, reading Tower of Dawn, it reminded me of why I liked this series. I liked that Chaol's story received it's own stand alone because certain things really needed to be addressed. Especially his point of view from what happened from Queen of Shadows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YOU HAVE TO READ I absolutely LOVED this book because it was from Chaol's perspective. We rarely heard from his perspective in the previous novels and I thought Maas was going to kill off his character until the end of Empire of Storms. This POV was epic and it was cool to learn about the other lands and their cultures. DEFINITELY read this book!!!
Date published: 2017-10-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maas' Best Work To Date In Short: I LOVED EACH AND EVERY SECOND OF THIS BOOK. It reminded me on the initial books in Sarah J Maas’ Throne of Glass series that I fell madly in love with and I don’t know if I have the WORDS to describe what this book meant to me. It was perfect, filled with plot twists that BLEW MY MIND and then some and I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED (and nervous) for the finale that comes out this May. I will admit that I wish this cover matched the white backgrounds of the rest of the series, but it doesn’t matter that much to me, because there was so much else to love about this book. Let’s break it down: REASONS I LOVED THIS BOOK: 1. THE PACE AND PROPER DEVELOPMENT OF CHARACTERS: I went into this book a little sceptical. With the exception of two characters (okay, four, but you barely get to know the other two in The Assassin's Blade) this book was about to introduce you to a whole new CONTINENT filled with characters and I was nervous that I wouldn’t care about them/ the book wouldn’t make me care about them. I was WRONG. Tower Of Dawn has this medium pace through the book as we are introduced to a whole new court, whole new families and so many new traditions. I ADORED the world building that Sarah Maas did in Tower Of Dawn – it was brilliantly constructed and explained, rivalled only by her construction of the Night Court. 2. YRENE TOWERS AND NESRYN FALIQ: If you think that Sarah J Maas can only have powerful assassins/ shape shifters/ fae as her main characters, think again. Both Yrene Towers with her healer magic and her strong sense of self and Nesryn Faliq with her unflinching loyalty and warrior spirit FLOORED me with their strength and courage and I can’t wait to see the both of them again. 3. A WHOLE HORDE OF NEW PRINCES AND PRINCESSES: Of course Sarah Maas introduced a whole new slew of Princes and Princesses. I loved the cut throat world they lived in, and I ESPECIALLY fell in love with Prince Sartaq. I loved the part where Nesryn and he go to the Aerie, and meet his hearth family. He, and all the other Princes and Princesses, were so different from the ones I’ve been used to reading in Maas’ books and I LOVED IT. 4. A KINGDOM I GENUINELY WANT TO LIVE IN: Seriously, you guys, Antica is the accepting, teaching and loving world all of us dream of living in where there is no discrimination, hate or abuse. It was this PERFECT kingdom and I sat around FANGIRLING OVER IT. 5. SO SO MANY PLOT TWISTS: I WILL NOT TELL YOU WHAT THESE ARE, BUT THERE ARE SO MANY TWISTS THAT IMPACT THE WHOLE SERIES THAT YOU HAVE NOT SEEN COMING AND YOU WILL FREAK OUT WHEN YOU DO. 6. THE LACK OF EXAGGERATION: One of my biggest problems with Empire Of Storms was the amount of repetitive praise that the characters gave the others as the POVs switched around. In their heads, of course, but after reading the same thing for over 600 pages, it got monotonous and boring. Tower Of Dawn, however, was the EXACT OPPOSITE of Empire of Storms in this manner. Mass’ introduced up to all her new characters subtly but surely and let their actions speak for themselves. It showed me AMAZING growth in her writing and now I can’t wait for the finale. 7. EVERYTHING ELSE - I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF THE TIME I SPENT READING THIS BOOK. It was one of Mass’ best works to date, and I was so sad when it got over. I honestly cannot believe that we’ll all have the finale in our hands in just a few months because I AM NOT READY FOR THIS SERIES TO END. A brilliant, perfect fantasy with unrivalled world building and character growth. 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than I expected! Going into this book, I was not expecting much, since I was never a big fan of Chaol. But once again, Sarah J Maas delivers; the book has all the elements of a great Sarah J Maas book: beautiful writing, complex characters, and an engaging storyline! A must-read for fans of the series (seriously, don't skip this book just because you don't like Chaol).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chaol redeemed a little I liked this and it was a really interesting back/side story. it did redeem Chaol to me. I never hated him but I just was getting exhausted with his emotional baggage. I do find it a little odd/weird/creepy that he found his partner in the girl who modeled a lot of her behaviour and self from Celaena because of the Assassin's Blade story. I loved getting introduced to a new world and court. I do think that part moved a little slower. the last like...third or quarter of the book made me gasp so many times (in traditional Maas style). Maeve...oh I want to take that bitch down so hard! Lyssandra is my homegirl so I loved the reveal in this book. I loved Nesryn's new ship much more than with Chaol. I'm excited to see how all this plays into the sixth book

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing I did not expect to enjoy this book as much since there was no Aelin but I enjoyed it so much that I couldn't put the book down. I read this book within the weekend. The beginning of the book was a bit dry but once you get past it, it got better. I wish it could have throw in a couple of Aelin chapters to get the book more interesting and help tie in to the next book. I can't wait for the next book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Emotional Journey Holy gods. If there's one author that knows how to hit you in the emotional feels, it's Sarah J. Maas. I wasn't really sure what to expect from this book. I'd heard what it was going to be about and I like Chaol enough that I was excited and ready to read it. I can see why this ended being a novel instead of a novella (healing is a looooooong emotional process after all), and it was certainly slower than the previous books. But this was the first one that made me cry. Full on tears, and no way to hide them. It truly did feel like a journey, watching three characters––Chaol, Yrene, and Nesryn––grow into new people and reach a level of emotional depth that made me want to stand up and cheer. In this way, I thought the pace was perfect and added to the story. Since this was such a character driven story, when the action kicked in, it left me gasping. I refused to stop at chapters when danger was imminent, because I knew I wouldn't sleep if I didn't know how the conflict was resolved. I was so proud of the main trio for their choices, none more so than Chaol. It was one of his chapters near the end that left me a crying mess. And as for how this further connects to the TOG world, suffice it to say there are some MAJOR revelations, one that actually crushed me and leaves me wanting to pull out my hair now that I have to wait until 2018. I LOVED this book, and whether your a Chaol fan or not, this is something you need to read. So many messages, so much emotion, so much heart and soul was put into this, and I cannot recommend it enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from beyond my expectations I have to admit, I was not excited for this installment of the series. When I found out that it was not a continuation from right after the end of Empire of Storms, I nearly screamed in anger and frustration. I was even debating not reading the book at all. However, I succumbed to my conscience's "what if's" and pre-ordered Tower of Dawn. I was pretty skeptical when I started reading and hadn't decided if I liked it or not until the last bit. It is an excellent book (though not as good as Empire of Storms) and has some major plot twists, reveals, and points that are crucial to everyone's favourite characters whom were left behind at the end of Empire of Storms. Though I'm still mad at it, I'm looking forward to the seventh book even more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ugh. Not only Chaol is boring and repetitive, but without all the characters I usually care about there, I become way more aware of all Maas's overuse trope that I usually can put aside. Nothing really happen before the last 100 pages or so of the book, and the first 500 pages are eye-roll worthy. Can we just have the last book already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Wait I know that Chaol did some things that earned dislike for himself and so I really hope he can in some way redeem himself and that we will see some reasons for his prior actions. I thoroughly enjoyed his character although he did some undesirable things, but I am eager for his redemption. He was a pain in some other novels but I know there must be a reason for it, I still have hope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exclusive edition I'm really looking forward to reading this book even though Chaol might be one of my least favourite characters after Maeve. Even though Chaol may not be my favourite character, Sarah J Mass truly has a way with words and has made a character I hate in the prior books into ones that I adore. I know this read won't be a disappoint. *check out her instagram page because the poster of the ToG included looks amazing <3
