***Gladys – #NerdGirlOfficial’s  Review***
This book has left ME splintered. Left me breathless. Empire of Storms had me crying at every single epic scenario she threw our way. Sara J Maas has never failed to disappoint me after I read any of her books, but this one did. BECAUSE I wanted more. NEEDED more!! AND right now!! Not next year. NOW NOW NOW!!!!

In Empire of Storms, we have three powerful evil factions fighting for a high seat to rule. We have her Aunt Mauve the Queen of the Fae, The Evil King of Morath and Lord Dorrack who believes he is the next King of Terrassan. We could only wish that they just destroyed each other right, but Aelin being a true queen of the people couldn’t let that happen. In reality, the true royals are the joining forces for a better world for their all of their people. The rightful heir, King Dorian of Ardalan, the rightful Queen of the Witches Mannon (OH AND I DO SO LOVE THIS WICKED WOMAN) and of course our favorite assassin, turned princess now rightful Queen of Terrasan Aelin.

It’s up to her Majesty Aelin to bring together the good, the bad and the ugly to fight for what was taken from them. PEACE and FREEDOM. She calls in every life debt she is owed and prays to Mala that she succeeds!!

With her team of fae princes, a magic wielding King, a shapeshifter, an ousted witch and her cousin/commander the Wolf of the North, they travel through the continent to assemble an army fit to fight.

New characters are introduced, old side characters are brought into the fold, and the world continues to grow and grow and grow. What kind of mind does Sarah J Maas possess to pull such wicked beauty out of it and entertain us?

5 Stars are not enough for this installment. I tip my Nerd Girl hat to you yet again #MaasTheGenius!!!
