Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Mass.
The sixth book in the Throne of Glass series.
My rating – 5*/5*
‘Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.
His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent’s mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.
But what they discover in Antica will change them both—and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.’
Basically Sarah J Mass could write a recipe on how to boil pasta and I would probably read it and rate it 5 stars because I am 100% a fangirl and I have loved every single book she has read! YAS QUEEN. Tower of Dawn was of course not an exception to this and I loved this book so much and it was everything I didn’t realise I had needed and more.
So, quick rapid fire lists about the great things and then long rambling posts just because….
♦ A WHOLE FRIGGIN BOOK ON MY HUSBAND CHAOL WESTFALL.
♦ NEW SHIPS THAT I FULLY SUPPORT
♦ A CRAZY ROYAL FAMILY
♦A PRINCESS PUSHED INTO A POOL (may be my fave bit)
♦PLOT TWIST AFTER PLOT TWIST
♦THE LAST CHAPTER
“You may look at me with resentment Yrene Towers, and I will not blame you for it. But believe me when I say there is no one in Erilea who loathes me more than I do myself.”
Obviously I was more than happy that Chaol was getting his own book since I love him and has missed him not being in Empire of Storms, but that didn’t mean I wasn’t nervous about it, could there really be 660 pages about him? Yes, yes there was and it was heaven. This book was a bit slow towards the start but once it get’s flowing I didn’t want to put it down it was amazing, so just hang in there as I promise it will get better.
Although this book was centred around Chaol there were two other POV’s which I enjoyed just as much as when I was reading Chaol’s and that was Nesryn and Yerene POV’s (AND THE VERY LAST ONE AT THE END WHICH I WASN’T EXCEPTING). For me this book was full of hope, healing, new friendships and alliances. Other than Yerene who was introduced in this book I absolutely loved Sartaq who is one of the royal’s and I can’t wait to see more of him 🙂
“It was agony and despair and fear. It was joy and laughter and rest. It was life, all of it…”
If you haven’t already figured this out I adore this book and I have no idea how to put it into words just how much I loved it so this review is going to be a mess. sorry not sorry.
This book was the perfect in between book and introduces us to many new characters who will be fighting alongside Chaol for a future they all deserve. This book has easily set the stage for the next book and I can’t wait to get my hands on that book…. even though it is forever ago.
If you’ve read this book let me know in your comment’s if you enjoyed it and who your favourite new characters are! 🙂
