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.
"A princess who was to live for a thousand years. Longer. That had been her gift. It was now her curse."
"She would not go quietly.
She was not afraid."
"Should they succeed in their quest to find Aelin, the young queen would still be expected to pay the ultimate price to those gods."
"Once upon a time, in a land long since burned to ash, there lived a young princess who loved her kingdom...."
"There was nothing kind in the prince's face. Nothing warm.
Only cold-blooded predator. Hell-bent on finding the queen who held his heart."
"Remember that we have something to fight for, and it will always triumph."
"Terrasen was her home. And Aelin her queen."
"You do not yield."
"A better world.
A world with no gods. No masters of fate.
A world of freedom."
"There is a better world out there.
And I will fight for it."
"She would live.
She would live, and they could all go to hell."
"Rattle the stars.
She'd promised to do that.
Had done so much toward it, yet more remained."
"The resistance was not supposed to break apart so soon."
"She would not greet the Darkness's embrace today,
But they would."
"Darkness embrace you."
"I will always find you."
"She'd never let them break her. Never swear that blood oath.
For Terrasen, for her people whom she had left to endure their own torment for ten long years.
She owed them this much."
"They'd walked this dark path together back to the light.
He would not let the road end here."
"A better world.
A world with no gods. No masters of Fate.
A world of freedom."
- 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.
