Heir of Fire Book Review

Heir of Fire is the third book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas.


Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy. While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love? 


We definitely see a change in Celaena in this book as she accepts who she really is. She also grows in her powers as in Wendlyn, she is able to access her magic.

I enjoyed reading how her relationship with Rowan develops and changes as she spends her time training and accepting the Fae part of her. We also see how she digs deep when she learns of Calaculla and Endovier.

We also follow Chaol and Dorian as well as new characters to their perspectives who play a role in what happens. How Dorian does have magic and how they can help him survive.

We are also introduced to Manon and the Thirteen. She is powerful witch and we are introduced to wyvern which are dragon like creatures. It will be interesting to see the role she plays in future books.

This book is full of happiness, shock, magic, fae, battle, self sacrifice and much more that keeps you hooked.

5/5 stars
