Review | Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass #4) by Sarah J. Maas

Fans of the Throne of Glass series won’t be disappointed by the latest installment. The standard is upheld, mostly thanks to a superb final quarter. 3.5/5 stars.

For background, check out my reviews of Throne of Glass (Book 1), Crown of Midnight (Book 2) and Heir of Fire (Book 3).

Until about 75% into this book, when things ramp up a notch and there are some significant developments, it was just more of the same. Celaena/Aelin was particularly irritating this time out. I’m not sure why. Maybe because suddenly everyone thinks she’s marvellous. Or because she doesn’t say anything which isn’t snarky or full of herself. Or, most likely, because I just don’t dig the romance between her and Rowan (sorry). For me, Rowan seems to exist only to snarl, bare his fangs and take his shirt off.
