(Gerard's review, 5++ stars)
Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas is the second to last book in The Throne of Glass series and is full of adventure, battles, plotting and romance. Aelin continues her quest to save the world to make it better and it is good to see her rally her friends to help her. If you have been reading this series, definitely continue on with this book but don't read this one until you have read all the previous ones.
Parts of this book were puzzling to me; however, the action scenes are very good and I cheered for Rowan and Lysandra in the battles and also for Mannon and her Wyvern, Abraxos! I really liked these characters especially in this book! Aelin now fights with her magical fire more than her swords which is okay, but I liked the sword fighting better. This book has very strong female characters who always seem to stay one step ahead of the males in this book. It was good to see Ansel back too. I liked her and Aelin working together.
(Karen's review, 4 stars because I didn't like the raunchy sex scenes in this one)
