let’s do this – “heir of fire” by sarah j. maas

hello my lovely bookoholics! ❤ i hope, you have a wonderful first december weekend!! 🙂 today is a very, very exciting day!!

my girl adrienne from @darque dreamer reads and i started a readalong for “throne of glass” back in august and we made a blog event out of it. we sent each other questions before we started reading and then also during our reading to discuss the book. it was so much fun, that we decided to continue with “crown of midnight” in october. we were then joined by my girl kathy from books & munches and had such a good time with book two in the series. so, now it’s december and it’s definitely time to continue. starting today we will read book three in the series, “heir of fire”.

here’s a short synopsis of “throne of glass”, if you haven’t read the book, just to get a feeling, what this series is about:

throne of glass” is about 18 year old celaena, who was trained to be an assassin and ends up as a slave. she is freed by crown prince dorian to participate in a competition, where the winner becomes the new assassin of the royal family. celaena doesn’t think twice, because she wants her freedom. but with her being in that competition, things start to happen, that make her life complicated: friendships, feelings, killings, magic & mystery.

 

 

adrienne and i will again do two posts to discuss our feelings for the book. this time we’re taking two weeks to read it, because “heir of fire” is huge and with my schedule i probably won’t be able to read it in one week. so we’ll discuss part one of the book on sunday, december 10th and our final discussion will be posted on december 17th. so watch out for the posts. if you want to read along and discuss with us, please join us in the comments 🙂

now it’s time for our first q&a. i have sent adrienne three questions before reading “heir of fire” and here are both of our answers. please be aware, that these will contain spoilers (!!!!!!!!), if you haven’t read the first two books in the series.

1.) After “Throne of Glass” and “Crown of Midnight”, which rating do you think you’ll give “Heir of Fire”?

adrienne: “I think I will be giving it a 4-5 star rating. I am hoping anyway. I think there is going to be some new developments, and more magic, so I am hoping for at least a 4.5!”

alex: “of course i hope, that this one will blow me away and i will give it five stars. but i also thought that about “crown of midnight” and i couldn’t do it because part one of that book felt too slow. and i also think, that “heir of fire” will be the same, since there is some change in the story. i think, i will enjoy it a lot and in the end give it 4.5 stars.”

2.) Since Celaena is going on a journey in this book, are you ready for new characters?

adrienne: “I don’t know if I am ready for new characters. I wanted things resolved with her and Chaol. I guess we will have to be. I expect new characters since she is traveling somewhere new and facing new problems. I just hope the new characters fit.”

alex: “honestly, i don’t know if i am. i am really invested in the lives of celaena, dorian and chaol. obviously. i don’t know if i am ready to let that go and go on a complete different path. it could work out, but it also could go very, very wrong.”

3.) What do you expect from Chaol and Dorian in “Heir of Fire”?

adrienne: “I am almost wondering if Chaol and Dorian will be put on hold in this book. With Celaena traveling somewhere new, we may not get any story with them. I think there will be tension between them if they do show up, though. There is no way Dorian’s feelings are completely gone.”

alex:i expect, that they will interact more with each other. i think it’s going to be weird between them, but i think they will talk a lot, especially about celaena. and even though it’s breaking my heart, i have a feeling that we will see a lot less from them.”

 

 

adrienne will also have up a post with her questions for me, so don’t miss that one! i hope some people are joining us in the discussion! have a great reading week 🙂

  1. Whoopwhoop!

    I really am hoping we’ll be getting some bits and pieces from Chaol’s and Dorian’s POV’s during this book. It would be such a pity if we lost track of them completely because Celaena’s on another quest.
    Although Chaol and Dorian definitely stole a piece of my heart, I am curious about the new characters Celaena’ll be meeting. Not to mention that Ihave a secret hope of some people of her assassin-past popping up but it might be a bit too early for that. Maybe in one of the other books! I’m definitely curious to see how they’ll react when they found out who she is, haha.

    I’m also REALLy curious whether or not Chaol will end up telling Dorion who Celaena really is, or if he’ll figure it out for himself. My main reason for hoping their POV’s will stick around during Heir of Fire, I guess. 😀

    I’m going to start reading!
    Here’s fingers crossed to hoping I’m losing myself in this book completely and can give it at least four cupcakes! And hopefully not NOT losing myself in it because of my romance-craving I’m dealing with lately.. :’)
