A Court of Thorns and Roses
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre slays a wolf in the woods, the last thing she expected was a beast-like creature appearing and demanding retribution.
It’s only until she is forcefully taken to a treacherous magical land that Feyre learns that her enslaver isn’t an animal, but Tamlin—one of the deadly, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As Feyre spends more time on his estate, what was once cold hostility towards Tamlin transforms into an intense passion beyond every lie she has ever been told about the beautiful and dangerous world of the Fae.
An ancient, evil power is however growing stronger, and Feyre must stop it before it destroys Tamlin, and his world, forever.
Although Feyre fought the clutches of Amarantha to return to the Spring Court, it wasn’t without a huge price.
She may now have the powers of the High Fae, but her heart remains human, unable to forget the dreadful things she did in a desperate attempt to save Tamlin’s people.
Feyre also hasn’t forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court.
A more powerful sinister force is however on the horizon and only Feyre is capable of stopping it…but only if she can heal her wounded heart.
“The earth will be painted red as great armies contest for power over the one thing capable of destroying them all.”
Feyre is back at the Spring Court. She is resolved on collecting every bit of information she can about Tamlin’s maneuverings, and the invading king threatening to bring destroy Prythian.
In order to do this however, she must take part in a lethal game of treachery; one where a single mistake could mean destruction not only for Feyre, but also for her world.
As war draws ever closer, Feyre has little choice but to decide whom to trust amongst the dazzling and dangerous High Lords.
The search for allies will lead to the most unexpected of places.
“Narrated by Feyre and Rhysand, this story bridges the events in A Court of Wings and Ruin and the upcoming novels in the series.”
Feyre, Rhys and their companions are still deeply embroiled in rebuilding the Night Court and the world that has quickly changed around them.
Winter Solstice, which is on the horizon, offers the chance of a deserved reprieve, yet not even the festivities are enough to keep the shadows of the past from emerging.
As Feyre goes through her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she comes to the disturbing realization that those closest to her have deeper wounds than she previously thought; wounds that will have an extensive impact on the future of their court.
Bryce Quinlan, half-Fae and half-human, loves her life. She works for an antiquities dealer by day and parties with her friends by night, enjoying every pleasure that Lunathion, fondly known as Crescent City, has to offer.
But that's until a terrible murder shocks the city, and her world.
Unemployed and broken two years later, another killing drags Bryce into the investigation along with with an infamous Fallen angel with a dark past.
Hunt Athalar, the personal assassin for the Archangels sent to protect Bryce, wants nothing to do with her. To him, she seems more interested in partying than solving the murder, on top of the fact that she advocates for everything he once rebelled against.
The two must however find a way of working together, for things that have been sleeping for millennia are beginning to stir...

Celaena Sardothien, the bold and lethal assassin, has gone to a remote island in a tropical sea in search of revenge; sent there by the Assassin's Guild to collect on a debt they are owed by the Lord of the Pirates.
Celaena’s mission however changes in a heartbeat after she discovers that that mode of payment for the debt is not in money, but rather in slaves.
And now, she puts everything on the line to make amends for the wrong she has been sent to inflict.
There isn’t much in the way of conversation when it comes to the Silent Assassins of the Red Desert, and Celaena Sardothien wouldn't want it any other way.
She isn’t there for mindless chatter but rather to perfect her skills as the most lethal and dreaded assassin in the world—for hire.
When the dream is however halted by forces determined to destroy the Silent Assassins, Celaena must devise a way of stopping them. If not, she will be very lucky to leave the desert alive.
When the courageous and deadly Celaena Sardothien is given a special assignment by the King of the Assassins, one that entails fighting slavery in the kingdom, she dives in head first at the opportunity to strike a blow against the wicked practice.

For Celaena however, absolute freedom can only be attained if she manages to get as far away as possible from her former master, Arobynn Hamel.
Along with Sam, the two embark on one final and audacious assignment that will free them forever.
But it’s only until then that Celaena discovers that having everything equally means that everything can be taken away from you.

From isolated islands to brutal deserts, Celaena fights to free slaves and avenge tyranny.
Will she however succeed in freeing herself from her master by acting on her own terms, or will she pay the ultimate price for her betrayal?

Throne of Glass Series
"Meet the stunning yet dangerous Celaena Sardothien."
Celaena, an assassin, is summoned to the castle in a land that knows no magic, and the king rules with an iron fist.
She is there not to kill the king, but to rather win her freedom. And to do it, she must defeat twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition. Released from prison, she serves as the king’s champion.
The Crown Prince will provoke her while the Captain of the Guard will protect her.
A sinister power however resides in the castle. When her competitors start perishing one by one, Celaena’s quest for freedom turns into a desperate fight for survival.
A king rules the throne of glass with a fist of iron and a soul as black as coal.
Celaena Sardothien may have triumphed in the contest to become the King’s Champion, yet the daring and lethal assassin is everything but loyal to the crown. She watchfully guards her secret, knowing too well that the man she serves is bent on evil.
Maintaining the absurd pretence nonetheless becomes increasingly hard when Celaena realizes that she isn’t the only one after justice.
But when she attempts to unravel the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships take a hit.
A line that should never be crossed now puts this entire castle in jeopardy.
“Queen or traitor? Only she can decide.”
Celaena Sardothien may have lived to tell of lethal contests and shattering heartbreak, albeit at a great cost. Lost and wounded, her only quest is to avenge the brutal death of her dearest friend.
Instead, she must now travel to a new land to face her darkest truth; one about her heritage that could forever change her life.
Meanwhile, monstrous forces are gathering on the horizon, hell-bent on enslaving her world. And in order to defeat them, Celaena must find the strength to not only wade off her inner demons but also fight the despicable evil that is on the verge of being unleashed.
“Her destiny awaits. But first, vengeance…”
Celaena Sardothien has lost everyone she has ever loved. Now, she returns to the empire to inflict revenge and save her once-glorious kingdom.
In her mission, she will fight for her cousin—a brave warrior willing to die just so she can regain her throne.
She will fight for her friend, a young man held captive in a terrible prison. She will also fight for her people who are enslaved to a merciless king, and desperately awaiting the triumphant return of their lost queen.
"From being a lethal assassin to an adored queen, will Aelin succeed in holding her world together?"
For Aelin Galathynius, the long path to the throne has just but begun.
Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at loggerheads with those who don’t.
As the kingdoms of Erilea shatters around her, Aelin must join forces with foes if she is to prevent her loved ones from falling to the evils forces determined to claim her world.
With war and danger lurking in all directions, the only chance of survival lies in a desperate quest that may very well see Aelin lose everything dear to her.
Chaol Westfall, the Captain of the Guard, was always characterized by his steadfast loyalty and strength.
That was however until the glass castle shattered, until his men got butchered, until the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, only to leave his body broken.
His only chance at recovery lays with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica–arguably the stronghold of the southern continent’s mighty empire.
What they however discover in Antica will change them; playing a more intricate role in saving Erilea than they could have possibly imagined.
"From slave to king’s assassin to the queen of a once-great kingdom, Aelin Galathynius’s journey ends in this explosive finale of the Throne of Glass Series."
Aelin has paid a great price to save her people. Trapped in an iron coffin by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin must remain strongwilled if she is to survive the months of torture; fully aware that that giving in to Maeve will spell destruction for those she loves.
With Aelin captured, Aedion and Lysandra now protect Terrasen from complete annihilation, yet the numerous allies they have gathered to battle Erawan’s hordes may not be enough to save them.
Spread across the continent and racing against time, Chaol, Manon, and Dorian are making their own paths to meet their fates.
Meanwhile across the sea, Rowan is on a mission to rescue his abducted wife and queen before it’s too late.
