So this happened today I swear I only going for the first three books lol. I own all of them but they are in storage and I really want to read the series. I had to get Heir of Fire on my kindle because the last person to check it out lost the book and my library has yet to get a new copy. #TOG #SarahJMaas

Rating: 5/5
What a satisfying ending. Yes, this was a long book, but it had beautiful moments, heartbreaking moments, a lot emotions, and war all throughout the book. One of my favorites out of the series now.

#UnpopularOpinion But this was a bad book, people. 😒 It was like a B-Movie. It took forever to finish it despite the fact that I listened on audiobook. Overuse of disgusting words like carrion, husk, rotting, vomit etc. A bunch of very unlikeable new characters + an extremely boring storyline that‘s going nowhere= a recipe for disaster 😖 If the next book is anything like this one, then I‘ll be in danger of not finishing this series.

HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain I think I‘m hate-reading this series just like you did 😫 I CANNOT with how utterly terrible this book was. It‘s the worst book I‘ve read all year and almost put me in a reading slump!! Seriously if the 4th book is even remotely like this then I can‘t do it anymore 😫 lol (edited) 1w
sprainedbrain Checking my notes, the first 3 were all so-so or pan for me, but 4th book I marked as a pick. It‘s been a while, though, so I can‘t tell you if it was actually better or if I was just finally numb to all of the stupid stuff. 😬 As much as I liked the ACOTAR series, I don‘t think Maas will ever be a favorite author of mine because of this series. I just never liked the main character, and the story is ridiculously drawn out. 1w
sprainedbrain Honestly, I would have stopped after 2 books if I hadn‘t already owned the first 6 books on Audible. I accumulated them all during sales back in the day and then I just had to listen to them. 😂 1w

sprainedbrain I will say, the last 2 were my favorites... but again, I never really liked our hero. That makes it hard! 1w
HOTPock3tt I don‘t like her either!!! Isn‘t the main character supposed to be appealing in some way? I can‘t even root for her because she‘s so obnoxious. You know how much I ADORE ACOTAR, but I agree: this series makes it impossible for me to consider Maas as one of my fave authors. @sprainedbrain (edited) 1w
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain I wonder if by the time a person gets to the 4th book: Your brain is probably about to ooze through your ears from all the stupidity that by then, anything she writes that is marginally better would look good! 🤣🤣🤣 (edited) 1w
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain I wonder if that is the secret to the popularity of this series: it‘s so bad at times that you just have to discuss it and how you survived it kind of like a battle scar 🤔 1w
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain I‘m joking, but do you think that may be be some of it? 🤔 any press good or bad is still press... maybe ppl continuously talking about it (good or bad) brings it so much attention that people check it out due to curiosity 🤔 1w
sprainedbrain I think you may be right, though... I know the reviews on GRs for these books made me wonder if some of them even read them, or just blindly adore the series since they‘ve invested the time. 😂 1w
sprainedbrain I just cannot get over how much I dislike the MC though. The ones I ended up liking in the end were not who I would have expected. It also annoys me how Maas always wants to pair everyone off like she does. I mean, what are the odds that everyone is going to find their freaking soulmate in a relatively small group of characters? Ok. I‘m done ranting for the morning. 😂 1w
HOTPock3tt Everything you said is true though! I wondered the same thing about the GR‘s reviews. I think when some people like an author they just rate everything they ever write with 4 or 5 stars... without evaluating the quality of the actual work... @sprainedbrain 1w
HOTPock3tt I was actually unnerved by how much I can‘t stand the MC. She is obnoxious+ arrogant and cocky for NO REASON while she gets beat up 🙄I usually LOVE characters who are arrogant and cocky but they have to be appealing at the same time. In the famous words of @Eggbeater “I have to LIKE that I don‘t like them” and I can‘t stand her 😖 @sprainedbrain also I know what you mean about the pairing off. For example 6 ppl and they all end up together 🙄 (edited) 1w

I‘m always scared to read companion books before they were meant to be read and accidentally spoiling something that happens later in the series, so I tend to read them AFTER all the main books in a series, but in this case I think the payoff of reading this is greater the earlier in the series you read it. So read this EARLY!!! BEFORE you get to KoA (I like a certain someone). Was pleasantly surprised by the story quality, a great collection.

I have a feeling I‘ll take my sweet time reading this book as im not a huge fan of the character it is based on! But it‘s vital to the series so I guess I don‘t have a choice! 🙄

megzlynn I think this one might surprise you! I felt the same way going into it but it turned out to be really good. 3w
Mishu94 @megzlynn haha this gives me hope then! I was really close to skipping it and reading the last book! 😂 Maybe I‘ll end up liking it! 🙈 3w
