Kingdoms collide in Sarah J. Maas's epic fifth installment in the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series.

The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don't.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Aelin's journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?

    Best series ever made!!! It is the best book I ever read!!! 👍🏻😃
  • Great!

    By MercedesLicerio
    The story takes a wild turn and offsets the whole series (in a good way). For me personally, it made me wonder about the journey that was laid out since the first novel. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
  • And the plot thickens

    This is a great tie up as we get to the end of the series (no!). I’m honestly in love with the author and this series. I can’t wait for the last book. This is by far one of my favorite series and hopefully she continues to write many more.
  • It's going to break you, and you'd do it all over again.

    The angst that goes through the whole book finally amounts to much sobbing at the conclusion chapters. We all care for these characters and this world so much...pain has never hurt so pain, and want for someone to be okay so intense.
  • Thank You

    Mindblown... I'd like to thank Ms. Maas...because every single emotion that ran through me (there were Many, so many!) as I read the perfectly chosen words, for some reason, was more intense than I've ever felt reading anything, Ever. Magic! Magical ❤️💔🔥 I Cried 😳 lol, I Cried! I would try to express in writing my excitement for the next book, but it'd do no justice... Thank You G
  • Heartbroken

    By Rabaa M
    This was one heartbreaking book. I cried through the ending of the book. I never cried while reading a book before but this made me cry. I love Aelin so much and couldn't handle reading what she went through at the end. I hope that she survives the ordeal she's now in and comes out of it stronger. I don't see Aelin dying to forge the keys. Either Dorian will die to forge or both Aelin and Dorian join together to forge without having to sacrifice them selves in Guardians of the Galaxy fashion. I hope Maeve will be destroyed for what she did to Aelin Ashryver Galathynius. Aelin remember that Aelin Galathynius and you will not be afraid.
  • Epic fantasy ruined by cheap porn right in the middle of it.

    What the..... did Sarah have a Miley Cyrus moment and have to prove how nasty she can get? I read the first few books and loved them so much that I got them for my teenage daughter. Then halfway through this book there is a sex scene so long and graphic that I just stopped reading. There is no way I can be a good parent and allow her to read that. The other books implied plenty of sex, but didn't get dirty with details like this one. Sarah, I believe you are a talented enough writer that you could have gotten all the feeling and point across without alienating an entire age group from your story. And if you intended on your teenage readers to read (or possibly enjoy) that part, that's even worse. Why couldn't you stick to the way you portrayed it in your other books?

    It starts off a little slow but once you start reading, you won't stop. I finished the book in less than 3 days!

    I honestly have no words. SJM has utterly left me in such pain and agony. The secrets, the destiny reveled in the book was just to much to bear. I was so not ready for what happened in the end. I have never cried the way I did for any book before. This books series no doubt is my ultimate favorite. It hurts me so much to see the fate of the characters I have come to adore but I remain with much hope and as Rowan said in the end, I will not accept it. Chaol's novel I hope will fill the void in my heart and thoughts that continue to linger with sadness. If I could put more stars I would because this just overall is an amazing book despite the ending. Empire of Storms brought out so many emotions I didn't know could occur in a span of minutes -happiness, sadness, anger, everything. In all love, love, and love Is what I have for these series in it greatness. I have no doubt the final book in the series will be everything, will be a book I won't forget as I can't forget the strength in Aelin and her will to do what I can't if I were in her situation. Hope is all I have in the final end, and I pray Sarah saves my soul/heart from more tears. Hope for tears of happiness please please!!!
