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 who 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?

I announce from now that this review will be me pouring my heart out. I’ve finished Empire of Storms 2 hours ago AND I AM EMOTIONALLY DAMAGED.

I cannot fathom how I am going to survive for 9 months without knowing what is going to happen, but.. My name is Sofia Mariana and I will not be afraid.

There were some people who attacked Sarah after they’ve read this book. What is wrong with you, guys? Even though the ending was painful, I was pretty content. I like pain, remember?

Since ACOMAF, my trust for Sarah reached heavenly numbers.

Sarah, planning all of this makes me wanna delete my book draft, restarting it again. Planning thoroughly because damn, she is a queen…. planning all of this. I anticipated most of it, ’cause oh well, me and Sarah are alike.

(I am listening to Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack right now haha the irony)

Empire of Storms was the definition of epicness. If you think Queen of Shadows was the cherry on top, wait until you read EOS…

Everyone gathers and we get to meet old friends. Life debts are being repaid . I couldn’t stop crying. This was so beautiful. Everyone being friends, or at least allies, with everyone against Morath, Maeve.

Rowan…Rowaelin reminds me so much of Feysand. Especially in the end. They are goals over the highest goals.

The females….the males….I don’t know this book was so beautiful I can’t even describe what made me feel while reading it.

A mess of a kaleidoscope. They rattled the stars, they were not afraid.

The friendship between everyone…Lysandra, Aelin.

New couples. Manon and Dorian are so consuming together. Lorcan and Elide….oh I love Elide.Women in these books are so strong it makes me wanna cry. Gives me confidence.Power.

Empire of Storms is the deifnitoion of Fire and Ice, Storm and Calm, Winter and Summer, Black and White. No middle variables. Only extremes.

I can only quote my favourite lines. I wanna get into that world, to help them out. Aelin was so me. I could identify with all of the characters.

No Hans Zimmer instrumental can beat the epicness of this book’s ending

It was so worth it. So worth it. I am sad that I was in a reading slump and the beginning was agony to go through. But now I am back and thirsty for words.

P.S:I hate Maeve

The world will be saved and remade by the dreamers.

Even when this world is a forgotten whisper of dust between the stars, I will always love you.

He was hers and she was his and they had found each other across centuries of bloodshed and loss, across oceans and kingdoms and war.

I’d walk into the burning hell of heart itself to find you.

A court that wouldn’t just change the world. It would start the world over.

There was no force in any world that could keep her contained

Even when this world is a forgotten whisper of dust between the stars, I will love you.

We’d better eat before we raise hell.

She was a force of nature. She was a calamity and a commander of immortal warriors of legend

We shall create wonders that will make the world tremble.

But they wove a tapestry of dreams, all begging for one thing… a better world.

I’m going to call in old debts and promises. To raise an army of assassins and thieves and exiles and commoners

50000 stars/50000 haha
