"Chaol Westfall and Nesryn Faliq have arrived in the shining city of Antica to forge an alliance with the Khagan of the Southern Continent, whose vast armies are Erilea's last hope. But they have also come to Antica for another purpose: to seek healing at the famed Torre Cesme for the wounds Chaol received in Rifthold.
After enduring unspeakable horrors as a child, Yrene Towers has no desire to help the young lord from Adarlan, let alone heal him. Yet she has sworn an oath to assist those in need—and will honor it. But Lord Westfall carries shadows from his own past, and Yrene soon comes to realize they could engulf them both."
Tower of Dawn is the sixth installment in the YA fantasy series Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.
Dare I say that this was my favourite book in the series? Yes. And I have no idea why, but this just felt right to me.
I was shocked going into this because, having not read the synopsis, I had no idea this would focus on Chaol and Nesryn only. My relationship with Chaol was rocky at best since after the first book he became very petty and I didn't enjoy that at all. His pettiness persevered a bit in this book since he tended to lash out because he apparently just couldn't handle his emotions, but he got better.
What brought me the most joy in this book was Nesryn, shockingly. I didn't really care much for her character previously because to me she was just the person with Chaol, but her dynamic with Sartaq was really good to see. Pretty much all of the relationships in their series have started out badly but Nesryn and Sartaq are adorable together.
