Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien only lives for the thought of vengeance against the murderer of her most dearest friend. But as the King of Ardaland's assassin, she is bound to serve this vicious and bloodthirsty tyrant, but he will pay for everything he has done. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn and at the behest of a malicious and cruel queen. 
Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the captain of the Ardaland King's Guard, has sent Celaena away in order to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that very same place. If she can overcome them, she will become Ardaland's biggest threat, and his own strongest enemy. While Celaena learns of her true destiny and the eyes of various Gods look on, a brutal and ferocious new threat is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to fight her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties between her own people and those she has come to love? 

A favourite series of mine, 'Throne of Glass' has yet another victorious and beautiful story to places under it's rather impressive title. I only put down this book once in order to sleep before I finished off at a rapid and almost frenzied pace. I cannot get enough of the characters in this series, and even when more and more POV's are introduced, the new personalities and traits are always to varied between good, evil, betrayers, courages and broken that I never know what to expect with each and every one of them. You can never judge any of the characters at their first introduction because there are so many different paths that they can climb or fall down, they could end up a hero, a monster or even a slave to others or to themselves. There are just so many layers to the characters, the kingdoms and the magic that even if you lived there you would never know everything about this mysterious world you lived in. I havn't been so completely teleported into a new world as I have with this one, the writing is almost hypnotising, the characters so complex and the world building so complete and yet still so mysterious that if I could, I would erase this story from my mind just so that I would be able to experience it again and again. 

Rating: 5/5 Titans
