as amazing as the other books

this third book, though a little longer and sometimes slower than the other, is as thrilling as the first two. what I particularly appreciated was that we finally discover Celaena's story, understand what she went through. I can't wait ti read the fourth book !

Shocked

I first started listening to this series because i found it was suggested on a "books similar to Harry Potter" search I did. I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting much.
The first book was good. It seemed a little cliche at first, and it felt like the narrator hadn't quite mastered her craft. And yet, I downloaded the second book immediately after I finished the first. The second was better. There were some palpable plot twists, more complex characters, and the boom wasn't afraid to get a little darker, which I loved.
But then, bam, this third novel hits you like a freight train. Intense, emotionally and psychologically gripping writing. And the narrator has really come into her own. She's like a different person!
Honestly, never thought I'd be recommending this series so strongly, but you should read it. I'm downloading the 4th one right now :)

Amazing Story, Just What the Series Needed

If you have read the other books... This is the book you have been waiting for. Not only was it a great story in itself, but it also provides a lot of the back story about Celaena, including flashbacks from her childhood as princess and early use of magic. The book is full of Fay, Demi-Fay, monsters, LOTS of magic, battles, betrayals, and on, and on.

If you haven't already read the rest of the series, then you probably won't get nearly as much from this book as you would have if you started from the beginning. Even if you haven't though, you will certainly still appreciate it.

Celaena spends the entire book in Wendlyn, where she was sent at the end of the last book. She goes through a great deal of self discovery and understanding while learning how to use (and more importantly control) her magic under the direction of a bitter yet likeable warrior Fay. Although she fears the power she hasn't been able to access since childhood, she none-the-less rediscovers how powerful and unique her gifts are, and how valuable and necessary they will be in defeating the King.
Chaol and Dorian tell the story from back in Rifthold where both of them, despite being at odds, plot against the King in their own efforts. One of the new characters, a cousin to Celaena and general to the king, joins the two of them in an attempt to destroy the King's ability to suppress magic.
A new character also gives a perspective of the kings plans from elsewhere on the continent, in a very interesting independent story line. Even though this character is completely isolated from the others, I have a feeling she will become a major player in the next book.

Another thing I liked about the book was that is wasn't just told primarily from Celaena's point of view (as in the last two books), but all the characters get an equal share of the story. In many other book series, I find this annoying because I really only care about what is happening with the main character, but the other story lines are interesting enough that I was just as happy to hear from them.

Although this book is (unfortunately) just as much of a cliffhanger as the last was, it at least left off in a good place. I also finished feeling satisfied given all that that happened, all the new developments, and all of the new material.

With as great a story as this was, and another excellent performance by the narrator, this is without a doubt worth the credit I spent...

Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse...

What would have made Heir of Fire better?

An editor. A good editor would have used a red pen and removed more than half the text from this book. There were parts where the text went on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and when it was done the story hadn't moved a millimeter in any direction. Remove Celena all together. Her whiny attitude gets worse in this book, and I can't bear to go on with the series.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Definitely not anything Maas writes or Elizabeth Evans narrates. Both are beyond horrible. I ask myself how did I endure this long.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She detracted from the book by simply narrating it. Elizabeth Evans is awful beyond awful.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

When it was over. I was ever so grateful that it was over. I should have stopped listening half way through, but didn't want to waste my money so I endured.

Any additional comments?

Don't do it! Don't buy! Stay away! Spare yourself the pain, the torture and agony of Maas's work and Evans's narration! You'll be a better person for it.

Exactly Where the Series Needs to Go

Okay, so I am going to be 100% honest. I wasn't a huge fan of this series. I enjoyed the first book, but I felt like Maas focused too much on a possible love triangle than on this incrediblely awesome world she has created! It was also extremely frustrating that the characters didn't know what was going on like what "wyrds" were, and it seemed like we were never going to learn. Then the end of the second book happened...

I am absolutely thrilled with where this series is going. We are FINALLY getting some answers! I'm crazy about the world-building that is going on, and, yes, everything is starting to click together. I almost feel like re-listening to the first two now, so I can understand the hints at what is happening.

So, if you know me, you know what sets books apart from being "good" to "amazing" is character development. And, boy oh boy, did I get some character development. Let's break down by characters since it's a mixed POV:

1. Celaena
Poor Celaena. I will admit I really didn't care for her at first! I didn't find her arrogance charming. She seemed one-dimensional to me...Until now. She has so. much. depth. I loved learning about her past and why she is the way she is. I was a little weary that we, the listeners, were going to be bogged down by her despair (like in Mockingjay), but we weren't. Her fears are tangible, and it was thrilling to watch her become the woman she was born to be.
The training scenes were beautiful. The development of her magic was beautiful. Her friendship with Ronan was beautiful.


2. Ronan
I am always hesitant about the introduction of new males. Celanea was just coming out of a terrible break-up, and I truly did not want to have another book focusing on Celaena developing a new boyfriend. Ronan was not that. They had a wonderful friendship, where, if it developed into a romance, I would be completely fine. Ronan was broken, just as Celaena was. They healed each other. I'm still not over how beautiful there last couple scenes with Ronan were. My only complaint is that he probably won't be too prominent in the next book.

3. Manon
We are introduced to another new character...which, again, scary. But, Manon's POV ended up being my second favorite to listen to! She is a witch, but in a different clan than the only witch we have been introduced to - Baba Yellowlegs. She is a cruel creature that revels in violence. I've never read anything where you are hearing from a deeply mean person's perspective, so that was neat. Her development gave me chills. The witches are preparing for war, and they are given these creatures as their mounts. The mounts are supposed to be mindless killing, flying machines. However, Manon develops a relationship with her mount, Abraxos. Abraxos is a literal slave, and he shows Manon that she is a slave to her culture. I cannot wait to see where the series takes her - hopefully with an alliance with Celaena.

4. Dorian and Chaol
I didn't want to hear from these two. Is that bad? Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed them both in the past books. They just aren't as exciting as witches or fay. I'm sad for Dorian, and that is all I have to say on that front. Chaol was annoying. He could not chose a side; he felt like it was between Caleana and Dorian BUT THEY ARE ON THE SAME SIDE. That just annoyed me. Chaol ended up making his choice in the worst possible moment...I won't spoil it.

Overall:

Yes, I loved it. Yes, you will love it. Yes, you need to drop everything and listen immediately. You will laugh, and you will probably cry. It is worth it.

Heir of Greatness

In the third installment of the Throne of Glass series, Heir of Fire, Celaena Sardothien embarks on a life-changing journey. New alliances are formed as tensions run high in the kingdoms.

Though I don’t usually have a lot of luck with fantasy series, I do enjoy this character-driven series quite a lot. Celaena’s a great heroine who has grown a lot over the course of the series. And the stakes keep getting higher for her. With the action moved to unfamiliar territory and Celaena on a new path, this is a transitional phase for her. I did miss Celaena’s interactions with her friends from the first two books, but we do meet a kick-ass new character in exchange so that’s almost a fair trade-off.

The fantasy elements really ramp up in this installment, and we get more acquainted with fae and witches. The action shifts between three separate but related stories in Heir of Fire- Celaena’s journey, the characters left behind in Adarlan (Dorian, Chaol, etc.) and the Blackbeak coven. I have to admit the chapters with the witches went over my head. There is a new character named Manon Blackbeak who seems important but for the life of me I couldn’t keep up with that storyline. I will definitely have to read a Recaptains recap before the next book.

What kept my interest is Celaena’s personal journey and revelations. I liked her alliance with Rowan, the fae prince. The prickly Rowan is a great addition to the series, and I’m curious to see what role he takes going forward.

Back in Adarlan, Chaol and Dorian are quite downcast without Celaena’s company, though it’s not long before they get distracted other pressing matters. Chaol seemed kind of lost in this installment and I hope for more Chaol and Celaena in the next book. A new character causes some trouble for Dorian and Chaol and I’m interested to see how the situation in Adarlan shakes out. Dorian really got to me in this book – lots of character growth there.

The romance is downplayed in this installment compared to Crown of Midnight, but that makes sense considering the journey Celaena is on. The strong friendships that build in Heir of Fire make you (almost) not notice the lack of romance.

This series really shines in audiobook format, with the excellent performance by Elizabeth Evans. She pronounces all those tricky words for you so you don’t have to try to make sense of them on your own. Evans gives a strong and consistent performance here and doesn’t distract for the story. She brings many different types of characters to life and is especially successful with capturing Celaena’s essence. Since Heir of Fire is over 20-hours long, you’ll get your money’s worth of your Audible credit.

This installment is a game changer in a lot of ways with so much to ponder and digest. The slow-burn action pays off in the end and leaves you clamoring for the next book.

Very Long

I felt like some parts were just too long and drawn out. Strong start to Celaena's new adventure. She learns more about herself and her powers. She makes new friends and we learn about some new characters like some vital witches. I wonder what will happen with Rowan, Maeve, and Manon in the next books to come. Dorian tries to harness his powers and Chaol is not as courageous as he once was. There is just so much sad death in these books (tear).

Why was this book even here?

I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books, and then I got to Heir of Fire. It is such a slog. I was worried I would blow through the first five books before I had new credits available to get new installments in the series. That was not a concern as I was dragging my feet every time I came back to this story like a cat who knows a bath is imminent.

I did not care about anyone or anything happening in this book until maybe the last 5 chapters. Everyone was moping or brooding.

I understand Celaena was mourning and that you have to show a character recovering from a traumatic experience, I just hate being there for that part of the story. She also has some weird platonic bonding with her broody mentor in a series of training scenes which I also hate reading/listening to. And then she pulled herself up, and started getting stuff done again right at the end.

I understand Chaol was coming to terms with his actions and the wedge they drove between him and those close to him, but I did not care.

I understand Dorian was making the best of his situation, and he even found some puppy love with someone who was far below his station, but I did not care, and the would-be punch in the gut at the end fell flat because I was not invested.

I understand SOMETHING REALLY IMPORTANT IS HAPPENING WITH WYVERNS, but the witch point of view we see everything through... makes me not care. And I care even less about her witch politics and relationship with her abusive grandma.

Points of view from minor characters were suddenly added without warning or transition. This is something the narrator is terrible about, by the way, she can do accents well, but is awful about assigning distinctive voices to characters and that has bothered me since Throne of Glass. There are so many POVs that can switch mid-chapter and I sometimes get lost for a few paragraphs.

I am on to Queen of Shadows now and back to the tightly paced, action driven narrative that the first two books had (even if Chaol is still being a little whiny). I am really hoping this was a one-off experience.

Overkill

OMG. Character development overkill. The amount of time spent developing the relationship between certain characters drove me crazy. This book could have been cut by a third... but that's just me. There was also development on a separate set of characters that never actually come to play in this book and that irritated me too. The author seemed to like making things confusing as hell when it comes to Salaena, specifically with giving her so many alias (4, I think?). The base story is still pretty cool and more magic is being used now. While it would seem that the next book is going to bring the direct conflict between Salaena and the King, I wouldnt be surpised if book 4 dwells on Salaena and her assassin story and getting the word key back.

Würdiger dritter Band einer großartigen Reihe

Auch im dritten Band konnte mich "Throne of Glass" wieder mit seinem Anspruch und seiner schieren Komplexität überraschen. Wo ich mir vor dem Lesen des ersten Buches wenig mehr erhofft hatte als eine unterhaltsame, möglicherweise eher seichte Fantasygeschichte für zwischendurch, entdecke ich stattdessen mit jedem Band aufs Neue eine gut durchdachte Welt jenseits der Klischees, mit vielen interessanten Themen und durchaus auch moralischen und ethischen Fragen. Kriegerische Konflikte, politische Intrigen, die verschiedensten Formen von Magie, Hexen und Fae und Wyvern, Assassinen und Prinzen und Rebellen...

Die Autorin beschwört diese umfangreiche, originelle Welt mit einem wunderbar atmosphärischen Schreibstil herauf, lebendig und bewegend und so detailliert, dass ich mir jede Szene bildlich vorstellen konnte. Ob humorvoll, romantisch oder tragisch, ich fand die Geschehnisse immer glaubhaft und großartig beschrieben.

Sarah J. Maas schreibt Charaktere voller Widersprüche, die nicht so einfach einzuordnen sind in "gut" oder "böse". Sie sind das Produkt ihrer jeweiligen Lebensgeschichte, die sich dem Leser nur nach und nach enthüllt. Deswegen sollte man einen Charaktere nie zu schnell abschreiben! Oft ist es in Büchern (gerade im Genre Fantasy) ja so, dass die HeldInnen die aberwitzigsten, grausamsten Dinge erleben, dies aber scheinbar ohne Probleme wegstecken. Nicht so bei Sarah J. Maas: viele ihrer Charaktere tragen die Spuren ihrer Erlebnisse, sei es in Form von Depressionen oder posttraumatischem Stress. Gerade Celaena zeigt in "Erbin des Feuers" meines Erachtens deutliche Symptome dafür, dass sie die traumatischen Erlebnisse in ihrem Leben noch lange nicht verarbeitet hat. Sie macht im Laufe der Bände, die ich bisher gelesen habe, eine enorme Entwicklung durch - mit dem scheinbar oberflächlichen, selbstsüchtigen, skrupellosen Mädchen aus dem ersten Band hat sie nicht mehr viel zu tun.

Auch die Beziehungen zwischen den Charakteren sind so vielschichtig, komplex und widersprüchlich wie das Leben. Gerade Liebe kann die verschiedensten Bedeutungen haben und muss nicht immer romantisch oder erotisch sein. So sagt einer der männlichen Hauptcharaktere am Ende zu einem Freund "Ich liebe dich", und das ist für mich eine der herzzerreißendsten Szenen des Buches

Und so gibt es zwar im Laufe der Reihe auch verschiedene Männer, die in Celaenas Leben eine Rolle spielen, aber das typische Liebesdreieck gibt es in meinen Augen dennoch nicht! In diesem Band wird als neuer Charakter der Fae-Krieger Rowan eingeführt, und wie sich die Beziehung zwischen ihm und Celaena entwickelt, lässt sich auch nicht so einfach in einem Satz erklären - deswegen lasse ich es einfach und sage nur, dass ich es sehr schlüssig und passend und wunderbar fand.

Als weiterer neuer Charakter kommt in diesem Band die junge Hexe Manon dazu, die erst ein wahres Monster zu sein scheint - wie alle Hexen ihres Clans in dem Glauben erzogen, sie habe weder Herz noch Seele. Ihr wurde immer eingetrichtert, dass Skrupellosigkeit, Gewalt und Blutdurst etwas Erstrebenswertes sind, aber nun erlebt sie etwas, dass sie dies hinterfragen lässt. (Und nein, keine Liebesgeschichte.)

Spannend fand ich die Geschichte auch, denn es passiert in diesem Band wirklich so einiges, was auch noch längst nicht alles aufgeklärt wird... Ich freue mich schon auf die nächsten Bände!

Ich habe nicht nur das Buch gelesen, sondern nebenher auch das ungekürzte englische Hörbuch gehört, gesprochen von Elizabeth Evans. Ihre Stimme fand ich sehr ansprechend, und mir gefiel besonders gut, dass sie es wunderbar schafft, verschiedene Charaktere mit unterschiedlicher Stimmfarbe und unterschiedlichem Sprachrhythmus so zu sprechen, dass man sie gut auseinander halten kann. Ich finde es immer bewundernswert, wenn eine Sprecherin auch männliche Charaktere gut sprechen kann, und das kann sie! Ich habe mir schon vorgenommen, weitere Hörbücher zu hören, die sie gesprochen hat.

Fazit:
Der dritte Band von "Throne of Glass" hat mich wieder voll und ganz überzeugt. Ich liebe diese komplexe Welt und ganz besonders die vielschichtigen Charaktere, die in keine Schublade passen. In dieser Reihe sollte man keinen Charakter zu schnell abschreiben - es ist nie so schwarz oder weiß, wie es erst aussieht! Auch die Handlung steckt voller Überraschungen, scheinbarer Widersprüche und unerwarteter Wendungen, deswegen wurde es für mich auch nie langweilig, und ich freue mich schon auf die weiteren Bände.

viel Entertainment für wenig Geld

Halten Sie die Hörbuch-Ausgabe von Heir of Fire für besser als das Buch?

Ich habe nur das Hörbuch gehört, aber Sprecher sowie Vortragsart und Geschichte (übrigens aller Teile, die ich bisher gehört habe) sind überaus fesselnd, spannend und ein Genuss für die Ohren.

Welche Figur hat Ihnen am besten gefallen? Warum?

Natürlich die Assassine :)

Welche Figur hat Elizabeth Evans Ihrer Meinung nach am besten interpretiert?

alle

Wenn Sie dieses Hörbuch verfilmen könnten wie würde der Slogan dazu lauten?

do not underestimate a small woman :)

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Die Geschichte (ganze Buchreihe) erzählt eine zusammenhängende Geschichte mit immer neuen, interessanten Facetten. Ich bin ein Fan!

Fantasy galore!

Everyone who has never read a fantasy book before and wants to start I highly recommend starting with this series. It's so easy to read and the fantastical elements grow with each book. This book being the one with the most fantastical elements in them – yet.

And although it has all of those wonderful evil witches and Celaena's training in it I somehow wasn't as enamored with it than with the other two books (some parts were really slow. Chaol somehow lost his charm)

Introducing new characters can be really tricky. I wouldn't say that it was a complete success but most of the new characters were interesting.

I adored the witches and I'm super excited to see what is going to happen to Manon and the Thirteen and so on.

Also I was very interested in Aedion – it doesn't get better than having a male version of Celaena running around.

Sorsha was a bit meh but she served her purpose in the story.

Rowan was someone I only warmed up to a little at the very end. I'm hoping that this will change because he will probably have a pretty big role in the next books. Fingers crossed that he becomes a little more likeable.

Maeve seemed like a bit stepmotherish but in a good way.

Needless to say - I will continue.

Düsterer und brutaler als die Vorgänger

Mich hat überrascht, wie stark die letzten Ereignisse Celaena mitgenommen haben. Natürlich sind sie nicht spurlos an ihr vorbeigegangen, aber dass sie in so ein tiefes Loch fällt, habe ich nicht erwartet. Zu Beginn des Buchs hängt sie nur in der Gegend herum und betrinkt sich. Celaena hat den Glauben an sich selbst und die ganze Sache verloren. Diese deprimierende Stimmung hält ziemlich lange an. Auch während sie (mal wieder) beweisen muss was in ihr steckt.

Die Geschichte setzt sich aus mehreren Erzählsträngen zusammen, die an unterschiedlichen Orten spielen. Gerade wenn es spannend wird, beginnt oft ein neues Kapitel, in dem ein anderer Handlungsstrang weitergesponnen wird. Wenn ich das Buch gelesen hätte, hätte ich manches Kapitel erst einmal ausgelassen.

Die Handlung ist deutlich brutaler. Wäre es von Anfang an so gewesen, hätte es mich wahrscheinlich gar nicht gestört, aber der Unterschied, besonders zum ersten Teil, ist ziemlich krass.

Den Part mit den Hexen könnte man meinetwegen komplett weglassen. Ich frage mich immer noch wieso sie soviel Raum in der Geschichte einnehmen und befürchte gleichzeitig, dass sich eine bestimmte Hexe charakterlich um 180° drehen wird.

Den Großteil des Buches geht die Handlung nur sehr langsam voran und vieles wird in aller Ausführlichkeit beschrieben. Irgendwann überschlagen sich dann die Ereignisse und im Gegensatz zum vorher langsamen Tempo, passiert unverhältnismäßig viel auf einmal. Ich hatte den Eindruck, dass die Autorin gemerkt hat, dass das Buch zu Ende geht und auf einmal noch tausend Sachen passieren lassen wollte, damit der Leser den Folgeroman kauft.

Das Buch ist nicht wirklich schlecht, mir hat aber irgendwie einfach etwas gefehlt.




-------Spoiler-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Spoiler entfernt]
Ich hoffe, dass Celaena im nächsten Teil charakterlich keine Rückschritte macht und sie nicht wieder in ein schwarzes Loch fällt.
