Tower of Dawn Book Review

Tower of Dawn is the sixth book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas. I read this book after Queen of Midnight.


Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since Aelin shattered the glass castle, since Chaol’s men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken. 

Now he and Nesryn sail for Antica – the stronghold of the southern continent’s mighty empire and of the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme. It’s Chaol’s one shot at recovery, and with war looming back home, Dorian and Aelin’s survival could depend on Chaol and Nesryn convincing Antica’s rulers to ally with them. 

But what they discover there will change them both – and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.


This book is focused on Chaol’s perspective as well as adding new perspectives from Yrene, Nesryn and Sartaq.

I found the beginning for the book slow but as Nesryn and Chaol were doing different things and getting close to Sartaq and Yrene respectfully I found the book become more interesting.

Half way through the book I realised I should’ve tandem read with Empire of Storms as the timelines are the same, but I will do that when I read the series again.

I really enjoyed the pairings in the book and the romance that built along the way. Chaol and Yrene are great for one another and so is Nesryn and Sartaq. I look forward to seeing what happens next in the series as the cliffhanger has me jumping into the next book.

5/5 stars
