Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas – Throne of Glass Series


So many feelings for this book!

It’s hard to put them all in words, but I will try. I have been a fan of Sarah J. Maas for years, ever since her first book, about the imprisoned assassin named Celaena Sardothien, was published in 2012.

Tower of Dawn is truly a heart-wrenching book.  There were parts where I cried, y’all. CRIED. Sweet, tender tears for a soldier brought to the ground by fate, and sobbing, ugly tears for that same man when he nearly lost his life.

I felt shock, awe, happiness, disbelief, heartache, suspicion, anticipation, and even a little fear.

The characters are so well-crafted that I couldn’t help but feel their longings, their strengths, and their weaknesses.

Sarah J. Maas has outdone herself with this one.


If you haven’t read the previous books in the Throne of Glass series, STOP HERE. Otherwise, you’re going to get all kinds of mad when you do read them.

This is Chaol’s book. I have loved this character ever since he and Celaena were introduced in the beginning. I was so sad for him when she didn’t choose him, and absolutely devastated when he lost his mobility.

I hoped and prayed there would be some hope for him in the future. This book, y’all, this book… It made everything that happened to him worthwhile.

Chaol and Nesryn are still on their mission. They need to make alliances and get whatever help they can for their queen. They discover a healer and a complicated royal family that will change them both forever, and a secret that, once revealed, will rock the world they know on its axis.
