Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she's at last returned to the empire-for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past...

She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight.

She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die just to see her again. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen's triumphant return.

Celaena's epic journey has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions across the globe. This fourth volume will hold readers rapt as Celaena's story builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.

Review of 'Queen of Shadows' on 'Storygraph'

5 stars

Wow this one blew me away. The series keeps getting better and better. Everything about it worked. Even characters I didn't care for in previous installments won me over. Every single POV worked for me, it's fantastic. <spoiler>I especially liked how in this one there are so many relationships and friendships between women, relying on each other and caring for each other, even with women who had been presented as antagonists before.</spoiler> I can't wait to read the rest of the series.
