    One thought on “Queen of Shadows”

    1. When my sister told me about an early review that promised really bad things happening to our favorite characters in this installment, I didn't care. I didn't actually think that was true; I trusted SJMAAS. But oh, dear nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to face the moment I picked up this damn book. With this review I'm putting these book down and getting some needed rest. I think we all deserve it after dealing with Aelin and the author's bullshit, am I right?Now, let's get do [...]

    2. “Maybe the world should burn.”Epicness. That's the only word I can think of to describe Queen of Shadows in order to encompass its complexity and awesomeness, because while I loved Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight blew my mind away and Heir of Fire broke my heart into teensy tiny pieces, neither of those installments felt as grand as this one -- worlds collided, debts were paid and a queen rose to her glory. “Let’s go rattle the stars.”I'm going to start by saying that I've read i [...]

    3. Many people know how I have felt about the books of this series. That I enjoyed the light, fluffy Throne of Glass. That I absolutely loved Crown of Midnight. That Heir of Fire was a slow, plodding disappointment. Did I like Queen of Shadows more than its predecessor? Yes.Do I think it's a fantastic book? No.Do I think you should read it? Well, it depends. It depends on whether you are committed enough to this series and these characters to read 650 pages of just okay.This book is loooonnnng. I t [...]

MORE LIKE QUEEN OF SLAYING YASSSSS GET IT GIRLWAN. i'M SCREAMINGAOL. MORE SCREAMINGDION!!! LYSANDRA!!! MANON!!! AROBYNN!!!!!!!!!I had about twelve heart attacks while reading this book. IT WAS AWESOME.

    6. BRB CRYING FOREVER. This book was a wild ride! While I loved this book, I did feel like the characterization within this book was a bit off. That's the main reason I didn't give this 5 stars. Other than that I was thoroughly happy with what went down in this story, even if certain things didn't go the way I wanted them to. GIVE ME BOOK 5 NOW. K THANKS.

    7. SO GOOD. SO FREAKING GOODT JUST GOOD BUT GREATHHHHHHHHHP.E.R.F.E.C.T.I.O read Queen of Shadows back in June but could not say anything about it (not even that I had it!). But now I can and let me tell you, Sarah has done it again! I LOVED QoS, so beautiful, bloody and outstanding. OH andROWANSWOON!!! 5/5 stars of course!

    8. QUEEN OF SHADOWS WAS AMAZING. I LOVED IT. CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE HERE'S MY EXTREMELY FANGIRLY BOOKTALK: youtube/watch?v=lSSKo LET'S TALK ABOUT IT MORE PLEASE

    9. Updated: September 30th. This is my opinion, my review and if you don't like it, I don't care.#CHAOLWESTFALLDEFENSESQUAD-------------------------------------------------------------------------I FEEL BETRAYED.At first, I wanted to write a long, very long review about Queen of Fanfiction but then i tought Why sould I waste my time? It's not worth it. This thing i call it "thing" because for me QoS is not a book, it's a very poorly written fanfictionNGRATULATIONS SJM FOR RUINING A GREAT SERIES!!!. [...]

    10. Post-reading: WOW. No words for this book. 95% love for this book, but the first 300 pages had issues I can't deny. But overall I just love love love how the plot developed! Full review:Check out my review @ A Perfection Called Books**Spoilers from previous books. Slight QoS spoilers about romance.Throne of Glass has been one of my favorite series for a few years now, so I've been impatiently waiting for Queen of Shadows and building the expectations to the highest degree. The fourth installment [...]

    11. This “review” has a lot of gifs, quotes and feelings.So basically I’ve been waiting a year to read THIS. And yes I said T H I S because I don’t know how I should describe this book.I’m so so disappointed that I’m not sure if I want to read the next book. What happened to Celaena/Aelin? What happened with the characters?I’ve been seeing a lot of comments saying that Celaena and Aelin aren’t the same person. Uhm what? I mean, only because someone has two names, they are different? [...]

    12. “But she was her own champion now.”Brutal and magnificent. A force of nature. How else can I describe a book about witches, demons and dark lords, fae queens and warriors, possessed princes, rebels and whores?Queen of Shadows deserves more than 5 stars. Queen of Shadows rattles the stars.“She was a whirling cloud of death, a queen of shadows, and these men were already carrion.”The fire-breathing bitch-queen is back. Ready to gather her court, claim her throne and wreck havoc to those wh [...]

    13. 01/28/16 Everyone is lowering their 2-stars rating to one star, and tbh I completely agree, this is not worth two stars.***times I broke down and cried: 5times I screamed and cussed at the book: 38fucks I give about this series right now: 0 Let’s start this review a bit different. Let’s think of an alternative title for it… how about… I don’t know… "HOW TO RUIN A CHARACTER AND HIS DEVELOPMENT THROUGH 3 MOTHERFUCKING BOOKS IN ONE BOOK". Yep, that fits perfectly! This is not a proper r [...]

    14. This review is absolutely STUFFED with spoilers. Spoilers to the highest degree. Please, please do not read it if you haven't read the entirety of Queen of Shadows.*deep, pensive sigh*Oh, this book.I could sit here and review this thing objectively, or I could be honest with all of you: this series has a hold over me, so much so that it can lie and cheat and steal and kill (basically, it can be Scarlett O'Hara) and I'll still let it sleep on my couch, eat my food, and lounge around at home all d [...]

    15. 3.5 starsOkay okay okay so THIS BOOK. I'm so conflicted, I hated half of the things that happened but loved the other half! I was going to let myself give it 5 stars just for the AWESOME ending (overall the whole second part of the book was AMAZING), but the first part was unbearable! I believe it took me one week to finish it, while the second part I read it only in one day because OMGITWASSOAMAZING and I couldn't stop. BUT YES, the first part: BORING and ANNOYING. There are so many pages in th [...]

    16. Edit: I've been wondering about these two stars. Soanging it to 1. Maas just sticks to her pattern of making characters OOC and Manon isn't enough to redeem this I can't even call it a book anymore. *if you comment please be civil. I've already had enough bad discussions about this and my patience has a limit. I've already seen enough of "why are they complaining, QoS is perfect." Everyone can have their own opinion, please respect it. If you liked the book and you want to discuss it feel free t [...]

    17. "Do you think monsters are born or made?" I just I just I can't I just don't know what to say. Celaena is coming for everything they said she couldn't have. Game of Thrones meets Batman. That's what the Throne of Glass series is and yes it's as epic as that sounds. Sarah J. does it again. Another stunning build of a book. This review is going to be so hard to write. I want to gush. I want to scream. I want to rage about this book, but can't because *sigh* spoilers. As much as I want to spoil thi [...]

    18.

    20. FIRST YOU MAKE CELAENA LEAVE CHAOL AND NOW YOU MAKE HER LEAVE ROWAN?! Why don't you just take my first born baby.When Rowan was first introduced in the book I was like uh NONONO, I DON'T THINK SO, THIS FRIENDSHIP BETTER STAY PLATONIC-but by the end of the book I was like YESYESYES SHE MUST HAVE ROWAN and THEN the author kept emphasizing how they were JUST FRIENDS. SARAH WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME, YOU SET ME UP- Making me slowly like Rowan and then just TAKING IT ALL AWAY T_TI hope this situati [...]

    21. Re-read on audio. Still awesome and still loving the narrator of the books ❤️MIND BLOWNSooooooooooooo, I loved this book! I was a little iffy there because I wasn't sure if Rowan was going to be in it but it's all good :-) Celaena/Aelin has returned to Rifthold. She's trying to sneak in undercover. She has a little bit of a different look for a bit. A little bit of hair dye goes a long way, but most people knows who she is. She is back to save her cousin and do what she needs to do to get ri [...]

    22. *** NO SPOILERS! *** Although may contain spoilers for first 3 booksH. HOW DO I REVIEW THIS?!?! HOW. JUST. HOW. But do you know the reason I'm gnashing and flopping like an electric eel? I'm not happy with this book. I am a wild wild fan of the first 2 books and the novellas. Like, WILD FAN. Like I hyperventialte when someone says Crown of Midnight because I think it's the best thing the world has ever invented. But I started losing my enthusiasm in Heir of Fire and now? Queen of Shadows? I'm so [...]

    23. 3.5/5 StarsVIDEO REVIEW [there is a tiny non spoilery section for those who have read the rest of the TOG series: youtube/watch?v=jKhoxI HAVE FINISHED THE BEAST.I really really enjoyed this, though it definitely was not my fave. A lot of things were not done as well as they could have been (so sad to say that) BUT THAT LAST 100 PAGES MAAAAAN. So good.There were a lot of things that surprised me, a lot of things I loved, and a few things I didn't love. ** after more thinking and talking to friend [...]

    24. Initial thoughts upon finishing - 8/22RIP me.Cause of death: brain just exploding from the brilliance that was this book. I don't even know how she does it but OMG I'm shaking right now from how perfect this was and how much I love these characters. A LITTLE DISORIENTED TBH.Direct thy wyverns to a bookstore immediately on Sept 1, buy the book and ignore the world!!! Seriously. Ask my husband how much he has spoken to me in the past 24 hours. REAL THOUGHTS TO COME LATER. But holy shit I cannot wa [...]

    25. Find me on Instagram & Twitter!❝She was fire, and light, and ash, and embers. She was Aelin Fireheart, and she bowed for no one and nothing, save the crown that was hers by blood and survival and triumph.❞HOLY CRAP. I finally did it. After more than a year of putting this book off. After two months of trying to get through this book I. FINALLY. DID. IT. I was on the verge of deciding whether or not I wanted to DNF this series or not but after Queen of Shadows all I can say is: WHAT WAS I [...]

    26. Every time I reread this series, I get fully consumed by it. Heart and soul! I'm going to love and adore it till death do us part. All hail, Sarah J Maas! 👑 Original review!Reread. Crying. Magnificent. My heart is so full and content right now. These books have me feeling all kinds of ways and I'm always drowning in emotions once I'm finished.
