My thoughts:

Wow wow wow! That ending… *sigh*

I really like how, even though this is the fourth book in the series, it had a satisfying “end”. I love a “happily ever after”, even when it’s not really the end of a story…

Queen of Shadows has some epic fight scenes, a bit of romance, and a hint of mystery going on. I’m loving where things are headed for Aelin and her friends ♥

I have to say though, this is a loooong book. As with most of the books in the series, this is a slow read. For some unknown reason, it always takes me ages to go through any of Sarah J Maas’ books! I’m not saying the story is boring or that it drags, because it’s just not true. I think it’s a slow read because of the author’s writing style…

Overall, a great story with a group of kick-ass characters! Let’s just hope Empire of Storms is as gripping and exciting as this one!
