Inhaltsangabe

Years in the making, Sarah J. Maas's number-one New York Times best-selling Throne of Glass series draws to an epic, unforgettable conclusion. Aelin Galathynius's journey from slave to king's assassin to the queen of a once-great kingdom reaches its heart-rending finale as war erupts across her world....

Aelin has risked everything to save her people - but at a tremendous cost. Locked within an iron coffin by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin must draw upon her fiery will as she endures months of torture. Aware that yielding to Maeve will doom those she loves keeps her from breaking, though her resolve begins to unravel with each passing day....

With Aelin captured, Aedion and Lysandra remain the last line of defense to protect Terrasen from utter destruction. Yet they soon realize that the many allies they've gathered to battle Erawan's hordes might not be enough to save them. Scattered across the continent and racing against time, Chaol, Manon, and Dorian are forced to forge their own paths to meet their fates. Hanging in the balance is any hope of salvation - and a better world.  

And across the sea, his companions unwavering beside him, Rowan hunts to find his captured wife and queen - before she is lost to him forever.  

As the threads of fate weave together at last, all must fight, if they are to have a chance at a future. Some bonds will grow even deeper, while others will be severed forever in the explosive final chapter of the Throne of Glass series.

The End of my Favorite Story

I loved it. Every single part of it, and i cannot express enough love for these Books in words. It was a glorious and epic end to my absolute favorite story. A story of pain and how to find the light in the darkness. The narration is soothing and absolutely Beautiful. I have no idea what to do with my life now, knowing no other series of books will ever touch me, draw me in, as much as the Throne of Glass one. Knowing these characters that i have come to truly love, to truly have in my heart forever, are going to never be written on pages again. That i shall never know how their stories continued. But it's an Ending i can live with, one that was worthy of praise. I can onlytell everyone thats willing to listen: read these books. You will not regret it.

bestes Fantasy Werk

ich bin zufällig auf diese Serie gestoßen und war mehr als nur überrascht. Der Sprecherin gelingt es fantastisch die Persönlichkeit der Charaktere hervorzubringen. Die Geschichte ist brilliant.

A fantasy as epic as Tolkien

Let me start by saying that I will never be able to adequately put into words what this series means to me and how much immeasurable joy it brings me. I will probably write and rewrite this review in order to try and do it justice. The Throne of Glass series is my favourite fantasy series since Lord of the Rings, simply put. It is absolutely epic in every sense of the word, especially in the way the story unfolds. The story starts off in book one with a rather normal princess fairy tale, and you would think it is just another YA series. But then, in book two, it becomes more. You get a first glimpse of the complexity, the mystery. And by book three, the story unravels, like a luxurious carpet slowly draping itself down a long stairwell. The world unfolds. The characters become more, become deeper than you would have ever expected. And the writing is so deliciously vivid. Over the whole course of reading this series, I have felt immersed in the story in a way I have never felt with any book before. When Aelin sneaks down Rifthold's dark alleyways, I can hear the rain pattering down and hitting the pavement. When Chaol and Yrene walk through the streets of Antica, I can feel the heat on my face, smell the dry air. When Aelin slays hundreds of foes, I get instant goosebumps. And when the characters interact, when secrets and passions come to light, I cry and laugh in equal measure. The last book in the series, Kingdom of Ash, is all this times a hundred. I can feel my heart pounding, I can hear the characters running, fighting, loving, fearing, and I can hear the epic music score that would befit the scenes. Without wanting to spoil anything - the pivotal scene in Anielle is probably my favourite scene ever. All this is due to the lush world-building and, more than anything, the truly amazing characters. Aelin is one of a kind, and to me, the best book heroine out of all of them. But there are a myriad of strong, fierce women in this series, and every woman can only aspire to be like them: Manon, Lysandra, Elide, Yrene, Nesryn... If anything, the series depicts a matriarchy, since the male characters rather follow a certain pattern - almost all of them are tall, beautiful, brute warrior types, but of course they also hold the reader's interest, each in their own way. Apart from Aelin's story, it was also Manon's and especially Dorian's journey that made this book remarkable for me. But I have also rarely read a book that handles an ensemble cast so well. Every story gets room, an individual view and experience, and it makes the whole story incredibly rich. I could continue praising this book forever, but if you've made it so far, let me just say this: read this series. Read the books, and when you get to book three at the latest, the story becomes extraordinary. I am still in denial that it has ended, but I like the ending very much. And not to forget the narrator: Elizabeth Evans is another huge reason to read/listen to these books. Her voice IS Aelin for me now. I love her voice, her intonations and pace. Listening to these audio books and experiencing the world of Throne of Glass is pure joy. A last remark: I think these books should not be strictly "YA". Adult readers will enjoy them just as much, although the reader demographic will probably lean more towards women due to the strong female heroes and the fact the books focus equally on romance as they do on mystery, intrigues, assassinations and epic battles. The perfect blend.

The best Series finale I've read until now

I cannot put into words how much I loved listening to this and reading along to it on my Kindle. The whirlwind of emotions and fastpacing scenes was incredible and easily made this one of my most favourite books ever. an epic conclusion to a well loved series, read perfectly by its narrator.

A last kernel of doubt

I have just this moment finished Kingdom of Ash and my first thought was WHAT? There is no denying that this is a wonderful addition to the Throne of Glass series but my first conclusive thoughts were:

-What about Nox?
-Huh, I’d like to have had some more details about the hidden fea of Terrasen and how Aelin found them in the first place.
-There has got to be a follow-up!

Otherwise it would just be too cruel. I agree that some times its better not to find out what happens in years to come because that gives the readers their own choice of follow-up, but in a series that this SO filled with detail it really will drive `some´ (me) of us crazy!

I also have to word my…mystification that follows and continues from chapter 108. I’m not talking about the death that occurs in that chapter but I just can’t get rid of the feeling that at that point the `ending´ of the book underwent A LOT of editing. I was left feeling that a lot of scenes were cut out or kept too short.
I know that this is a LONG book and any longer would have been too much but really, I’d rather have had an 8th book (and the wait) to the series but therefor a better rounded ending. It could have ended where the golden army came out of forest, for example.

My feelings are confused, on one hand I am happy that the last book is out but really, on the other hand I’m also disappointed that I’m left with a negative taste in my mouth. There were so many scenes that left me crying because it was so heart wrenching (because of the wonderful writing and plot flow) but at the end I’m really left with regret. It feels like a chasm and that’s not a great feeling to end off with. At the end there where a lot of question-marks.

That is why I can’t give it a 5/5. It’s a great book, worth every praise, as is the whole series but there is that last kernel of doubt that tells me not quite there.
