15 books! I read 15 books in October and it was amazing. Now, 8 of them were rereads, but I’m counting them on my list because it’s been over a year since I’ve read any of them (for some, its been several years) and it wasn’t a quick reread. Each one took over a day to finish. I don’t usually count rereads because I read them in a couple of hours, but these I feel obligated to include.
Read on for more details. Don’t worry, I’ll keep the details brief since there are quite a few books to get through (also I’m tired).
[ Edit (12/2020): This review was first published years ago. My thoughts on this series have changed since then. I still enjoy the series, but the problems in it can’t be ignored and must be discussed. I can’t reread it right now and completely rewrite this review (although I did adjust my star ratings to better reflect my thoughts on it now), but I think it’s important to point out the lack of diversity and harmful representation in this series as a whole. One day I will reread this and change this review to reflect all of these issues. Until then, I wanted to add this disclaimer. ]
Overall: 4.5/5 Stars
Plot and Themes: 4/5
Awesomeness Factor: 2/5
Review in a Nutshell: Empire of Storms is a fantastic entry in the Throne of Glass series. Despite a few notable flaws, this world continues to amaze me.
