"Heir of Fire" by Sarah Mass will make you "OH MY GODS!"
Celaena has survived deadly contests and shattering heartbreak—but at an unspeakable cost. Now, she must travel to a new land to confront her darkest truth . . . a truth about her heritage that could change her life—and her future—forever. Meanwhile, brutal and monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, intent on enslaving her world. Will Celaena find the strength to not only fight her inner demons, but to take on the evil that is about to be unleashed?
Celaena has survived the salt mines, the palace, and is now on a mission. The king belives she is going to kill the royal family of Wendlyn. In reality, she goes in search of the Fae queen. She needs to find out more about the Wyrdkeys so she can take down the King of Adarlan.
In the mean time, Chael teams up with Aedion, Celeana's cousin, to help the rebels. Dorian teams up with a healer to try to understand and control his secret magic.
Celeana is met in Wendlyn by Rowan, a prince of the fae court in service to Maeve, the Fae Queen. Maeve tells Celeana that she will not help her until she has trained with Rowan. Maeve wants to know the extent of Celeana's abilities and can't do that until Celeana even admits to all that she has.
The king also has a devious plot in the works. The witches have come together and are becoming dragon riders. They fight amongst themselves very easily. Manon, heir to the Blackbeak clan, chooses a dragon that no one approves of, who was bait for the stronger dragons. One of the four heirs will lead the dragon squad, and Manon intends to be that person. Failure is not an option.
I can't describe how incredibly awesome this book is. And now I must wait a year or more for another. I might just cry. Celeana is an awesome, strong female character. Maas' keeps you on your toes as you read. Each character has their own milestones to overcome before they can meet again and fight together against the King. The growth of Manon Blackbeak even. This series had captivated me. I have suggested it to sooooo many people now who are as eager as myself. I wish I were better at writing reviews because this book deserves a good one!
