A weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title: Empire of Storms
Series:  Throne of Glass #5
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Published: September 6, 2016 by Bloomsbury Children's

Synopsis: 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?

Why I'm Waiting 

There are no sufficient words to mention how much I love this series. I am one of the few people who think that it is getting better as the books go on (aside from the ships and romance but that's nothing new for me). I know some fans didn't love Queen of Shadows but I totally did. For me this series leveled up with that book in terms of my fangirling. I started developing these crazy ideas and dissected every detail at levels that I haven't done since Harry Potter. I have become obsessed with this series.

But seriously, look at that synopsis. Can we talk about how epic this book is going to be based on that synopsis. Dark forces, war looming. This is going to be a thrill a minute, I can tell. And can we theory craft based on some points there. I mean enemies become allies, who doesn't love that? I love that. And raise your hand if you, like me, are hoping that the Thirteen join forces with Team Aelin. Because straight up that is an unstoppable force of badass women and I need it in my life. It has to happen. Sarah, are you listening?

I have of course preordered a copy and I will probably reread part of the series to prepare for this book. I know I am not prepared for what will happen, but I probably never will be. All I know is that I definitely need to head back to Erilea and for more Aelin, Dorian, Manon, Lysandra, and the rest of that crew. I cannot wait to read this one!

What about you? What are you waiting for this Wednesday? Are you waiting on Empire of Storms along with me? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. Gah!! I NEED THIS BOOK. I think the series is just getting better and better too. That line about enemies becoming allies made me super excited too. I hope Manon has a bigger role in this one. So excited!!!
