Goodreads synopsis: click here
Tower of Dawn is the sixth installment in the epic fantasy Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. It follows one of our main characters, Chaol Westfall who was absent during the previous installment, Empire of Storms. Tower of Dawn takes place during the same timeline as Empire of Storms. Yes, contrary to popular belief, this book is crucial to the main story line, you need to read it if you’re planning on reading the conclusion.
Ah, where do I begin? Well, this book was a lot more than I expected it to be (and I had very high expectations, Chaol is one of my favourite characters). Personally, I have always really loved Chaol so this book was ideal for me haha. I do think that, veen if you hate Chaol, this book will (maybe not make you love him) but at least make you appreciate him more.
Okay, the brand new characters that we meet in this book are amazing! I want to focus on the royal khagan and family. Right when they were introduced, I was intrigued. They gave me weird vibes. They’re all so unpredictable, but my favourites of the family are Hasar and Sartaq, I was drawn to Sartaq the most though. I also really loved Nesryn’s family and wish we got to see more of them!
The different families introduced in this were all so amazing, but the “family” at the Torre Cesme was my favourite. The dynamic between the healers was so wholesome, so many good vibes.
When Sarah J. Maas put #yrenetowers on one of her Instagram posts about Tower of Dawn, I was so excited! In The Assassin’s Blade I loved Yrene’s character and wanted more of her story, so that made Tower of Dawn even more perfect (yes, I didn’t know that was possible either). Seeing more of Yrene’s character and story was so amazing, she’s such a realistic strong character!
I cannot speak from personal experience on the wheelchair/disability rep, so here is a review from someone who can: click here. I feel like it’s important to get views on things from people who have experience with it, so I encourage you to check out that review. There is so much representation in this book on all accounts, which I think was awesome and refreshing!
I wasn’t a huge fan of Nesryn in Queen of Shadows, but this book gave her character the attention she deserved. Her character development made me appreciate her so much more! I can’t wait to see more of her character.
The plot twists in this book though! I was literally left breathless by some of the information revealed in this, it was all so unpredictable!
In summary, I adored this book and it is definitely one of my favourite installments in the series, Sarah J. Maas is so talented and I am so grateful that I discovered her books! I want to keep my review spoiler free, so I’m going to stop writing here.
Sarah J. Maas still remains my favourite author and I will never stop recommending her books.
