"Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past…
She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight.
She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die for her. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return."
Queen of Shadows is the fourth installment in Sarah J. Maas' YA fantasy series Throne of Glass.
This book kept the series flowing since my enjoyment level still remained the same. The only complaint I had about this was the fact that the characters' personalities were constantly shifting. Which, you know, does happened because character development is a thing, but I didn't think it was development I wanted.
Aelin's character is fine again since I did find her a little less likable in the last book. Manon is pretty brutal in this one which I know that's what her character is like, but at times it is a bit much. And Chaol, good old Chaol, is the absolute worst in this.
