Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.
His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica-the stronghold of the southern continent’s mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.
But what they discover in Antica will change them both-and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.
Hi everyone! It has quite a while since I posted a review. Well I. AM. BACK! Life has been really busy for me for a long time, so I haven’t read much. But I now have found time to read not just one book, but FOUR BOOKS! I am very excited to be jumping back into reading and reviewing… Starting with Tower of Dawn.
It took me a year to read this. I got about half way through when it was first published in 2017. It was droll. I was bored. However, my best friend asked if I had finished it back in August 2018. I said no, for the reasons list above. She told me to give it a second chance, “You love SJM! Just push through. It’s worth it.”
So I did.
And it did not disappoint. The first half of the book is your basic intro to new characters, get their background, etc. But the second half was a fast-paced story culminating in so much new information about people and animals and things we didn’t have before.
There are new ships to consider, which is always fun. New adventures for Chaol, which I actually enjoyed having a solo book surrounding his quest to the Antica. I truly think it helped with the last book of the series. Instead of getting a quick recap of what he did, the audience gets the full back story. And I don’t think Kingdom of Ash would’ve been as good had Tower of Dawn not been written.
