Series: Throne of Glass series, book 5
Genre: Fantasy, YA

Note: This post reviews the fifth book of the Throne of Glass series. You may like to read the first four books in the series, Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, and Queen of Shadows before reading this review.
Additional Note: Though this series is considered to be Young Adult, I consider the sexual content in Empire of Storms to be more New Adult than Young Adult.
Aelin Galathynius, the lost heir of Terrasen, is back and will stop at nothing to save her kingdom, and all of Erilea, from the ancient darkness that threatens to consume them all. With loyal friends and the Fae Prince Rowan at her side, Aelin must use her powerful magic, her skills as an assassin, and her birthright as Queen of Terrasen if she is to even stand against the evil waging war against her world. As kingdoms are being torn apart, she risks everything in an attempt to put it back together.
But Maeve, the Queen of the Fae and Aelin’s aunt, uses her power and forces to make sure that Aelin, and everyone she loves, is destroyed, one step at a time. Aelin begins to see that the price of peace for the rest of Erilea demands sacrifices – sacrifices she herself is willing to make for the ones she loves.
I liked this fifth installment of the Throne of Glass series best so far!
