Kingdom of Ash is the seventh and final book in Sarah J. Maas's Throne of Glass series. It was released on October 23, 2018.

Official synopsis

Years in the making, Sarah J. Maas's #1 New York Times bestselling 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 as 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 our heroes must fight together, if they are to have a chance at a future. Some bonds will grow ever deeper, while others will be severed forever in the fiery final chapter of the Throne of Glass series.[1]

  • The original release date was May 1, 2018 (the same day as The World of Throne of Glass), but later changed due to Sarah's dad's health problems.
  • The release date was moved to September 1, 2018 then pushed farther back to the current release date.
  • *SPOILER* When Aelin passes through worlds, she sees two Fae—a winged male and a very pregnant female. The male lifts his hand and sends a gust of magic to slow her down. We can only assume this is Rhysand and Feyre from A Court of Thorns and Roses.
