SERIESous Spoilers: A feature where we discuss what happened in our favourite (or maybe not so favourite) books. Did you like the plot changes? The romance? What surprised you? What angered you? And what do you think will happen next?
While reading The Heir of Fire, I got inspired to create a post where I actually talk about the events of the book. My reviews have no spoilers because I hate spoilers. BUT, I love talking about the books I read! Especially ongoing series where crazy things are happening (or maybe not happening) and I have no one to vent to. I don’t plan on doing this every month–it’s more of a spur of the moment, rant driven type of post.
So please vent with me! Share your theories, your likes and dislikes and more importantly, what are you looking forward to the most in the next book.
This month’s SERIESous Spoilers Pick:
The Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas | Throne of Glass Series
–What on earth happened to Chaol!?–
Chaol was my favourite choice for Celaena when the love triangle was proposed between him and Dorian. I love Dorian–and I loved the larger focus he had in this book, his story really captured my attention. But I felt like Celaena had a better match in Chaol.
Now I don’t think that so much…
Most, if not all, “one true pairs” go through rough patches. Especially in a series as long as this one is intended to be. It would be boring if things were always happy go lucky and I can appreciate that as a reader even if I don’t like it. But with this series, I really don’t know. I think Celaena and Chaol are really, truly over!
Or at least, I hope they are because I was super disappointed in Chaol. I really don’t think he can get past who Celaena is and I can respect that to a certain degree. I like that he is strong in his convictions, I find it rather refreshing. I just hate that I…well hate him now and I’m really struggling with that because he was a favourite character of mine.
–Thoughts on Rowan: Yay or Nay?–
I’m not totally sold on their impending romance …yet. He really reminds me of Sam–who is my actual favourite leading man for Celaena if I had to choose. (Sam was another assassin with Celaena and I loved their connection and relationship during the novellas.)
I think he has potential to be a great partner for her. They just seem to connect on all the right emotional levels when it comes to duty, fighting and life. I could easily be sold on this new romance with the right development in the next book!
–Did your heart break for Dorian or was that just me?–
Wow, was this Dorian’s story or what? I was so addicted to his story that it pushed me through this book when I found it to be dry (at times).
I was so shocked by the turn of events (I honestly didn’t see it coming with Sorcha) that I still refuse to believe it happened.
–Was anyone else reminded of Game of Thrones when reading this?–
I have no idea what was going on with Manon except that it was very Daenerys Targaryen to me, just no dragons. (Manon’s whole arc made me feel like I missed something completely in the previous novels) And those weird creatures Celaena had to fight–white-walkers anyone?
I actually felt like this entire book was very reminiscent of Game of Thrones. Not that that is a bad thing, it just took the series in yet another direction I wasn’t expecting.
What are your thoughts? Agree or disagree? What are you looking forward to the most in the next book?
