Kingdom of Ash Summary

Aelin Galathynius has vowed to save her people ― but at a tremendous cost. Locked within an iron coffin by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin must draw upon her fiery will as she endures months of torture. The knowledge that yielding to Maeve will doom those she loves keeps her from breaking, but her resolve is unraveling with each passing day…

With Aelin captured, friends and allies are scattered to different fates. Some bonds will grow even deeper, while others will be severed forever. As destinies weave together at last, all must fight if Erilea is to have any hope of salvation. Kingdom of Ash!

This book had a lot to do, and a lot to live up to. I left it feeling satisfied with the ending, but there were definitely a few plot points and deus ex machinas that pulled me out of the book. Mostly towards the end, there was one specific thing that was so out of nowhere that I got annoyed, and the ending itself was a little too neatly wrapped up for how things were solved. I’ll get into that more in a spoilery section.

As for the pacing, this book was relatively fast-paced and engrossing despite being 1000 pages. There were constant battle scenes and action that moved the book along, mixed with some amazing character-defining moments and even a couple lines that made me laugh despite the war and death. After a while, specifically the Lysandra and Aedion chapters did get a little slow and predictable, but the other perspectives made up for it. Kingdom of Ash!

Also, I want to mention that the first quarter of this book has a lot of graphic torture scenes that can be hard to get through. It’s absolutely brutal and I found myself having to step back from the book a few times.

There were so many storylines to check in on that Maas would only share a glimpse of a character or two in each chapter before moving on to the next. But in this nearly 1,000-page-long book, all characters were given adequate page time to address their issues and conclude their stories. I enjoyed Dorian’s and Chaol’s chapters the most; the original characters have always been my favorites by far. Except for Aelin, that is. Kingdom of Ash!

Oh, Aelin. I’ve always said I liked her better in the first couple of books as Celaena. She became too invincible, too secretive, and too snarky for me (although I loved Celaena’s level and style of snark). I didn’t like what she hid from those she was supposed to trust the most, namely Rowan and Aedion. I just didn’t see the point of her secrecy. And I thought I could never forgive her for what she did to Chaol.

One more thing I enjoyed about the finale: The writing was a little less indulgent this time around. I felt like Maas had gotten too elaborate with her prose, but her style was more restrained in Kingdom. Maybe it was because she had so much material to cover and so much to accomplish. Kingdom of Ash!

Whatever the cause, I enjoyed the style more than the over-the-top middle installments. There were still words and phrases that made me chuckle, though, like when the word ‘mate’ was used (and it’s quite often, folks) and when any variation of snarling/growling/baring teeth was mentioned.

Even though there was much to enjoy in this book, the ending wasn’t all it could be. Maas did exactly what I was afraid she would. (See more about this below the spoiler mark.) And we didn’t even get updates about two of my favorite characters in the epilogue. Really?! Their stories were satisfactorily wrapped up in the main narrative, yet I would’ve loved to check in with them to see how they were faring several years later. Kingdom of Ash!
