Absolutely mesmerizing. I couldn't get enough. When I wasn't reading, I was thinking about it. When I was reading, I couldn't put it down! My heart broke when I finished the 8th book knowing there wasn't another to get lol! I definitely recommend this series, as well as, this author!

I started with throne of glass and then after heir of fire read the prequel and then continued with the series after that. It just depends on preference.

I've been looking for this book series for about 3 years now, and I'm so glad that I found it! Especially since I've finished the Snow like Ashes series (A series I recommend to ANYONE to loves magic, war, and life-and-death situations), I've been on the prowl for another book series that I can't put down. I hope this is it!
