Book Review: Kingdom of Ash

If you’ve been wondering where my reviews have been, know that they were missing because of this book. This book, clocking in at almost 1,000 pages, was a beast to get through.

At this point there are so many characters and plot threads to get through that it would be impossible to completely describe the premise of this book with brevity.

The Summary

Along with this mission, Chaol, as a now paralyzed man, hopes to find assistance from one of the healers at the legendary Torre Cesme. And the healer assigned to him happens to be Yrene Towers, a person Aelin helped during her assassin days. If you skipped over The Assassin’s Blade, you should go back and read that one before reading this. I haven’t finished The Assassin’s Blade, but fortunately did read far enough to know Yrene’s story.
