Hello friends! Today’s post is my review of the fifth (5th) book from the Throne of Glass series, Empire of Storms, by Sarah J. Maas.

You’ve been warned!
The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius as war looms on the horizon. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those who don’t.
With her heart sworn to the warrior-prince by her side, and her fealty pledged to the people she is determined to save, Aelin will delve into the depths of her power to protect those she loves.
