Sintesi dell'editore

Kingdoms collide in Sarah J. Maas' epic fifth installment in the New York Times best-selling Throne of Glass series.

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.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

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?

Emotional, Stressful and Wonderful

I've noticed trends in a lot of the YA scifi books that I've read, particularly those with a strong female lead, and this series follows all of them. It has the usual love stories, and the usual rise from the lower class, and a strong female protagonist - which to be clear, I always enjoy, AND, this book still managed to give you a plot line to love, even though you've kind of heard it all before. This particular book shows how much Aelin Galathynius has grown and how strong she truly is.

This book was extremely sexual, more so than any of the books prior, and I would not recommend it for the 11-13 age group. There were many sex scenes and sexual conversation and situations, so I think parents should use their own judgement.

I'm thrilled with this book, I wish I waited until the next book in the series was also released, because this is a doozy.

Why the graphic Sex scenes?

Loved the story, great plot with great characters.

However, it seemed like the author thought she needed wildly graphic sex scenes (this also in her other book series Court of Mist and Fury) to create intimacy between characters. Totally unnecessary, especially for a young adult novel. Something I would never recommend for the young and impressionable.

somewhat predictable

The narration was solid even though I'm not really a fan of Evans voice, she always does great work.

I find the story predictable and I feel that the writer doesn't really understand cruelty. what she paints as cruel just feels generic to me.

I think the story would have been better served if she would have focused more on the story and catered less to the sex appeal of the audience. not that I mind the fun bits of course but it overshadows the story to me.

As compared with the others in the series

Something changed in this book,(possible spoiler ahead).
!!!!!!!!Semi spoiler Alert!!!!!!!!
Couple things bothered me, because they weren't like the first few books a all.
1) So for some reason this book "gods damn" as everyone's emphasis words no matter the situation which was kind of annoying.
2) Everyone is having sex, this book has several very descriptive sex scenes... sure people messed around before and the second book I believe had some . But this book is ridiculous.

Overall I'd probably give it 3 1/2 stars, but since I can't , I'll give it 4, since these are basically my problems. Lol Just seems like a YA book, but this is not. Glad I read it before my daughter .

Good for adult audiences

I loved the story but cringed through all of the detailed sex scenes and explosion of explitives. Aelin's toes curl a lot, and everybody is "incarnate". (I dont know if that name is spelled right. Im more of an audio listener.) I hope Sarah tones down the adult content in her next books, or I wont be buying any more copies in the throne of glass series for my kids to stumble over.

almost perfect

I really wanted to give this 5 stars but couldn't due to the graphic sex.

Parts were Unnecessary

I appreciate how the author finally brought all the characters together and explained mysteries from her series. However I do not understand why she chose to be so sexually explicit with all of her characters. It didn't even seem to fit in certain places. She went from one overly lusty scene to the next, almost as if she got stuck and couldn't think of how to progress she story so she had all of her characters be fully and uncontrollably horny. It didn't make sense in context and seemed cheap and trashy. Besides her brief attempt at being an erotica writer, I liked this book.

Not my flavor.

Most of this series is brilliant, the vibrant world, interesting characters, and struggle for hope are parts that have kept me enjoying this series. This book however added some things that I really didn't like, and think detracted from the overall story. I believe there are times and places where sex scenes can be appropriate but many of the scenes depicted in the book felt like cheap smut, placed there as fan service to keep people interested in the books. it could have been more enjoyable if left to the imagination and not depicted in such a graphic and vivid way. The only other main issue I had was a 30 minute torture scene. It was placed to cause tension and build anticipation, but lasted far too long. The way it was handled caused me to loose all interest in the book or the outcome of the series.

The series as a whole is a good one, and one that have enjoyed. I would, however, not recommend this particular book to others. It just isn't my flavor.

I truly enjoyed Empire of Storms

Empire of storm is great story and I look forward to the next release. I have to say Aelin is just so lovable and she has won my heart. She is beautiful, smart , so giving. She is willing to scare her life so others may live. She is amazing.

I highly recommend this book. This book is full of adventure. Aelin may sound so full of herself; but she is full of love for the people and causes that she loves.

Rowan, Doran, Manon, Aedion and Lorcan are also great characters. I like the way we were able to her different characters POV.

I don't think this book is appropriate for kids as young as 11-13. I do think that there are parts of the book which are not appropriate for kids which are that young.

An applause to Sarah Mass and Elizabeth Evans. Good job.

I can see this series book becoming a tv show or movie.

TO SEXUALLY EXPLICIT!

What disappointed you about Empire of Storms?

I enjoyed the story, but certainly DID NOT NEED the SEXUALLY EXPLICIT chapters! Elizabeth Evans did a great job, I enjoyed her narration very much, she was able to bring the characters alive with each voice.

What other book might you compare Empire of Storms to and why?

-

Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Evans – was your favorite?

-

What character would you cut from Empire of Storms?

Any additional comments?

Great story, even better narrator

These books are great, but I'm sure you're aware of that if you've got to this point. What I really wanted to mention is the voice actor for this series is phenomenal. She captures the tone, essence, and voices of the characters and story. I've not come across a better narrator than this one here.

Absolutely amazing story. Couldn't stop listening

I can't wait to listen to the next book. Captivating story full of emotions, bravery, love and friendship, pain and suffering, pride and loyalty, humour and wisdom. Fantasy offering escape but at the same time teaching the values of right conduct, moral and ethical decision making.

Careful who listens to this

Any additional comments?

\i have now invested days listening to this series with my 14 year old daughter. she will not be listening to this final book as the prolonged sexual scenes are very graphic and would not be suitable. I am very disappointed as the actually add nothing to the story line.

Maturing story line

Think this has been one of my favourites in the series so far. It definitely benefits from more characters- particularly Elead and Lorcan. Looking forward to finding out what happens next.

What Happened!

I liked this series until this book. The parts with Menon the witch were awesome as always but given that Celena is the main protagonist I listened to slightly less than half of the book and the character/ story development with her was non existent. Add in some terrible and weak love scenes that turns her into a spineless wonder and it ruined the series for me. I really did want to know what happens with Menon but couldn't bring myself to finish the what is essentially a load of vapid chapters to find out. Sadly, I returned the book.
