In short: I don’t think I’ve ever reviewed the ToG books seriously. Well, it’s all coming out now, folks. Empire of Storms is a disappointment.
Spoilers for the previous books in the series, and A Court of Thorns and Roses. Mild spoilers for Empire of Storms itself.
Goodreads: The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don’t.

Aelin’s journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?
