Can we just pause for a moment to take in the awesomeness that is Sarah J. Maas. *pauses for eternity*
WE ARE BREATHING THE SAME AIR AS HER PEOPLE, WOW.
Heir of fire is quite possibly one of the best books out in the world! I don't know how Sarah does it, but she just has some crazy writing mojo that I've never seen before. EVER. And I love it. I love it so much in fact that I wish to print out this whole book and tape the pages all over my bedroom. Yes, that might be slightly strange, but for those of you who have read this book you probably have the same urge. Now for the souls who haven't read this life changing book, you're probably asking yourself right now one) if I'm sane and two) what's so special?...
The plot is so freaking complex and fantastic in this book that you don't even mind being lost in the madness called Heir of Fire. You know those book that are told from multiple perspective and just seriously suck, yeah well Sarah J. Maas rocks the multiple perspective thing. And not only does she rock it but she knows just how to intertwine these characters to make the plot that much more interesting. You are introduced to this massive plot through the use of multiple different characters and it is mind blowing. I was enthralled, completely, totally, and everything in between.
Not only did the plot kick ass, so did Celaena. She is one of the best heroines to read about especially on the third book because you can easily see just how much she has changed. She's still the baddest bad ass out there, but it took her some time to really get there in this book. However when she did, it was just sooooo satisfying, because you are rooting for her to get there throughout the book. You want her to overcome all of these obstacle, and figure out who she is. I became attached to Celaena, I cried when she cried, and my heart went out to her when she was lost. Her fictitious life became so incredibly real to me and watching her develop as a character is as satisfying as any accomplishment. "For she was the heir of fire, and she would bow to no one". Indeed.
Now Rowan, people I am not ashamed to say this at all, nope no even in the tinniest bit.... I SHIP ROWAN AND CELAENA.
I made a mistake and waited this long to read Heir of Fire.
Don't pull a Stephanie.
Read the book now, right now because I promise you don't want to miss out on not only the awesomeness that is Sarah j. Maas, but the amazing world of Celaena Sardothian. This chicks going to rattle the stars people. :)
Stay Drunk on Book,
