Review

Heir of Fire undoubtedly takes the story of Celaena to a whole new level.

In  Heir of fire we see Celaena become  more than broken. She is  relentlessly blaming herself for the fates and deaths of the ones see loves. She final reaches breaking point and takes down her shields.

But by taking thwse shields down and facing her past she is able to move forward and become  stronger, wiser and more determined. She’s not proud of who she’s become or what she has done over the past 10 years but she’s ready to make a change.

We get to meet  some new characters  in Heir of Fire, they include Rowan the fairy  prince, Queen Maeve, Manon Blackbeak, and Aedion Ashryver. With their introduction  we are able to see the world from multiple prospective  and get a better understanding  of how the world has been effected by magic leaving and the King of Adarlan. 

The King of Adarlan is still set on, well  global domination. He does not seem to care what he has to do to reach his goal. Though a key thing we learn during a flash back is that h e has been planning  and manipulating everyone for years.

Heir of Fire take us on a  darker and gritty journey. With twist and turns that will leave you wanting to know what will happen next.
