The queen has returned.

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 for her. 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.

The fourth volume in the New York Times bestselling series continues Celaena’s epic journey and builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.

"When you shatter the chains of this world and forge the next, remember that art is vital as food to a kingdom. Without it, a kingdom is nothing, and will be forgotten by time. I have amassed enough money in my miserable life to not need any more-so you will understand clearly when i say that whatever you set your throne, no matter how long it takes, I will come to you and I will bring music and dancing."

One of the great things about Sarah J. Maas is her characters decision to get the hell out of the war. But, it was in a time mannered way. Aelin started off on thinking the consequences if she marched ahead inside the tower. Though we all know Aelin will pretty much do it, she control herself no to and think about other people. And the people who died for her.

In Queen of Shadows, a lot of pressured has been placed into Aelin's back. There is Aedion that believed in her that someday, the Queen of Terrasen will be back and rule them all. While Chaol has been contemplating Aelin's plan to save or kill Dorian. A lot of doubt was actually added on that end. And Rowan, who suddenly appeared to be so much more than just her carranam. Of course, add some Valg Princes and The Thirteen and now every thing seems on piling up on Aelin. 
As Aelin realizes the deadly damages the King of Adarlan keeps on doing, she put a lot of risk on trusting people. Even if it means getting allied with Arrobyn. The man who put a lot of painful lessons on her. From that point, I know Aelin has a plan on turning the tables on him. But I didn't know it was freaking deadly and bloody. A pool of blood has been shed to be exact. I could say it has bit of foreshadowing but I did loved how Aelin planned all along on killing Arrobyn. HAHA!
But of course, one of the most thrilling part of the Queen of Shadows is The Thirteen! From Heir of Fire, Manon has been one of the apple of my eye when it comes on being the menacing character that I love to read. She has a voice that speaks out the truth of living as well the tragedy of surviving with it. But now on this book, it came deeper on what I expected. The secrets behind the Blackbeak and Yellowlegs clan boost up the thrill of the plot.

Most importantly, nothing gets better when Aelin, Aedion, Rowan destroys every thing. From the Valg Princes up to the King of Adarlan himself, for Dorian and for the future that was caged for a long tim, it was all magic in my eyes.

Queen of Shadows surpassed the characters limit of expressing their emotions. Every chapters intoxicates the reader to imagine what it feels like to act when fate decides to pin them up. And add it up when feelings get tied up in a middle of the war. This book put a lot tragedy and redeeming every characters life.
