Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas, reviewed by Alex

Heir of Fire

Calaena Sardothien has travelled to Wendlyn to
locate the Immortal Queen Maeve of the fae, for her
help in defeating the King of Adarlan. In Varese, the
Prince Rowan takes her to the castle, where Queen
Maeve names her price: Calaena is to train her magic
and hone her skills, embracing her destiny as Aelin
Ashryver Galathynius, almighty queen of Terassen.
Meanwhile, Manon, leader of the Thirteen, member of
the blackbeak witch clan is offered the chance to take to
the skies once more, an offer made by none other than
the King of Adarlan.

Overall, I would give this book ★★★★☆; the main
story is well-written, plot twists have you on the edge of
your seat, and the effort put into the writing of the
characters really shows in this book. I finished this book
in around a week or two and I couldn’t put it down. It
was an effort every day to put in the bookmark. I gave
this book four stars because, while it was a superb book,
I still want to leave room for improvement.

Queen of Shadows

Calaena Sardothien is now Aelin Galathynius,
queen of Terassen, and is back in Rifthold hunting down
Arobynn Hamel, her former master; for he stole
something of hers. And she wants it back…

Overall, I would give this book ★★★★★; every
word was well thought out, and this made the excellent
story all the more enticing. The plot was exciting and
had me desperate for more. I thought that the book was
over far too quickly, and the whole time I felt I was
watching a film. I gave this book five stars because, I
gave all the others four stars to leave room for
improvement, but this book, I felt, deserved five stars
