It’s been a while since I read The Heart of Betrayal, so I had to read an in-depth recap of the events of the last two books. Good thing, too! So much stuff happens in this third and final book!
I can’t remember if I’ve reviewed the first two volumes of this comic series on my blog… And shame on me! I picked up volumes 3 & 4 when I came across them at the library. I’ve seriously forgotten how fun and hilarious this series is!
Again, I’m reviewing the two volumes together like I did with Monstress. 🙂
I was absolutely thrilled to hear we would have a novella just on Chaol. He’s one of my favorite characters from the series. And while I do have a few issues with him (mostly his prejudices), I love him above all, lol! So when Sarah announced the novella was turned into a novel, I was ecstatic!
Diving into Tower of Dawn was a bit like coming home in ways I never imagined it would be. Returning to the world of Throne of Glass and being introduced into a brand new world of the southern continent and its cultures and people… To reacquaint myself with these characters and to come out in the end as loving them more… I cannot imagine a better pleasure as a reader.
I’m going to try my hardest to keep this spoiler-free!
Well, I surprised myself in September by reading more books than I thought I did! I can’t necessarily be mad at that considering lately, I’ve been a semi-reading slump and it feels so weird. But in terms of a book haul, I did fairly well. I’ve put myself on a rather strict ban due to ~adulting~. October may not be as kind as September though. 😅
Oh my goodness, why have I just now discovered this lovely graphic novel? I’ve seen the single issue comics in comic book stores, and while it intrigued me, I never bothered to pick it up. But then I heard it was an East Asian-inspired, steampunk-esque, matriarchal fantasy world and hello, yes, I’m hooked.
So I decided to review volume 1 and 2 together. Truthfully, sometimes I struggle with writing a review of a single volume, especially since this is definitely a longer series. Sometimes I feel as if volume one just allows me to touch the surface of the world, while volume 2 drags me under. 😉
Wow. Where do I even begin? Marie Lu solidified her place as one of my auto-buy authors when I finished Champion. (Yes, I read The Young Elites trilogy first.) So when I first heard about Warcross, I did a little happy dance–happiness for my favorite author releasing another book and that it would definitely make my gamer girl heart very happy.
It didn’t disappoint.
Eeeek, am I glad that I reread this book! I mean, I knew I would love it going in, but there are certainly some things I missed. Goodness me, how could I forgot that all these characters were introduced? I read so many books each year that I suppose it’s easy to forget.
(Also, bonus fact: One year ago yesterday, I met Sarah J. Maas on the Empire of Storms book tour. You can check out that post here. 🙂 )

When I heard some characters from these novellas would make an appearance in Tower of Dawn, I knew I had to reread this. Even so, I wasn’t eager to read this book since I remember not really caring about them. That’s remains quite true two years later.

I’m seriously cutting it close here! I won’t be done with these re-reads until after Tower of Dawn comes out, but that’s okay! Now that I’m done with Heir of Fire, I’m going to start The Assassin’s Blade. My Books-A-Million order of ToD shipped a few days ago. I doubt I’ll get it before tomorrow or even the day of its release, but who knows!
Anyway, enough babbling… This review will contain spoilers! You can read my initial review on Goodreads here.
So I heard many great things about this book, but I continued to push it aside for months. Yet I finished one audiobook and none of the ones I wanted to listen to were available, so I downloaded The Serpent King on a whim. Let me just say I was not prepared! I mean, I had to keep myself from crying while at work.
