Can there ever be too much of a good thing? Queen of Shadows gave me everything I wanted, until I realized I didn’t really want it anymore.
In theory, Queen of Shadows delivered on every promise the series has made to the reader. And yet, when I finished the book, I was left conflicted. Queen of Shadows lacked the subtle grace of Heir of Fire and the emotional whiplash of Crown of Midnight. Despite leaning so heavily on the plot threads left over from The Assassin’s Blade, it paled in comparison to the organic romance and heart-stopping betrayals of the novellas, as well. At times, for me, Queen of Shadows read like an alternate-reality fanfiction.
It’s important that I be clear that my overall disappointment in Queen of Shadows has to do with my own personal preferences, and that many readers — in all likelihood, most readers— will find the fourth installment in the Throne of Glass series to be a logical, enthralling follow-up to Heir of Fire. Readers who found the third book to be too slow will likely enjoy the nonstop, page turning action Queen of Shadows provides.
