I feel like after the first two books, Maas is trying to tell us to expect the unexpected, but not to be surprised when something is predictable in a surprising way. I am expecting all new characters in this one. Not that I want them, haha, but with the journey Celaena is making, I expect to meet some new people. I am hoping we will learn more about the magic in the story and the symbols too.

Short Divider 2 Fall

Me (Adrienne): Do you expect more action and bloodshed in Heir of Fire?

Alex: I am not really sure. Since i expect a completely different setting, I think it will take some time to introduce that one. I don’t know if there is much space left for more action. But I guess that at the end of the book there will definitely be more action.

Me (Adrienne): I am honestly not expecting much action or bloodshed in this one. I may be completely wrong, and would be pleasantly surprised to find it, but I think this will be a learning journey where Celaena finds out answers to most of her questions.

Me(Adrienne): How many new characters are you expecting?

Alex: I hope not too many, since I already love the existing ones. But I am guessing at least two new characters as in point of views.

Me (Adrienne): I would say we will meet at least 2-5 new characters, possibly more if Celaena meets a clan of people. My guess would be about 2-3 new main characters though.

Me(Adrienne): Do you think this one will still have the same feel as the last books with a new story and new characters?

Alex: That’s a point which scares me a lot. I loved the old setting and I am scared that I won’t like the new setting because of Chaol and Dorian missing. I hope Sarah J. Maas went into a good direction with this one and I trust her but I have a feeling, that it will feel differently than the first two books. I hope it’s as good as the other books but it will definitely be different and I am not sure if I am ready for that.

Me (Adrienne): I think this one will have a different feel altogether without the love triangle and with Celaena on a self discovery journey. I don’t think it will be a bad feel though. I think we are going to love this one (I hope), and find that it fits nicely in the story but feels different in a good way.

  1. I’m sooo looking forward to this!

    Although the setting’s going to be completely different, I’m definitely curious to see where Celaena will end up. Not to mention who she’ll meet. I’m also wondering what kind of influence her promise to Nehemia will have on her behavior.
    I do hope Dorian’s and Chaol’s POV’s will pop up once in a while. I’d love it if we could keep up with what’s happening with them while Celaena’s on a completely different quest this time around.

    I hoooope I’m going to read as fast as you guys are, because I’ve been in a huge romance mood lately, haha. Even though I’m so eager to read Heir of Fire, I’m a bit wary that I might not be in the mood for it so keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll lose myself in it completely any way!

    1. I am excited to start reading tonight!

      I am wondering the same thing about her promise!

      I am hoping we see them too, but I just have a feeling we may not.

      I think we will try to be done with the first half by Friday. Look up Dawn by Jessica Florence, and First Came Forever by Annie Woods if you are wanting romance. Might be able to get those in ebook for the week.

      1. I’m 100 pages in right now, whoop!

        I’m hoping to finish the first half a bit sooner than that because I want to get started on some of my diverse reads for the month, haha. First Came Forever is on my wishlist. So many bloggers have been going on about it that I really want to check it out someday.
