Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since Aelin shattered the glass castle, since Chaol's men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken. Now he and Nesryn sail for Antica - the stronghold of the southern continent's mighty empire and of the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme. It's Chaol's one shot at recovery, and with war looming back home, Dorian and Aelin's survival could depend on Chaol and Nesryn convincing Antica's rulers to ally with them. But what they discover there will change them both - and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.

Jag måste erkänna att Chaol inte är en av mina favoriter, och att jag kände mig aningen besviken när jag insåg att hela boken skulle handla om honom och Nesryn. Men det blev en mycket fin läsupplevelse. Mestadels för att jag verkligen gillar inslaget med rukryttarna och Yrene som karaktär. Men nu längtar jag efter att få läsa nästa del!





"You looked at me without an ounce of pity. You saw me. Not the chair or the injury. You saw me. It was the first time I'd felt . . . seen. Felt awake, in a long time."

I guess that it is no surprise to see that I loved this book because well I have loved all Sarah J. Maas' books I have read (even though ACOTAR Tamlin is trash). But I wasn't that sure if I was going to enjoy this book as much as Maas previous works. Mainly because I didn't exactly like Chaol before this book, I didn't hate him either but I just simply didn't understand him.

This book changed my mind. Chaol is such a strong characters that, yes, has done some very questionable things in the past (people that have read the previous books will understand what I mean) but he is fully aware of it. In this book we get to follow the sorrow and guilt he feels because of it all and he also grows incredibly much while in Antica.

The story itself starts off on the slower note but it was still adventurous and captivating enough that I wanted to continue reading. Tower of Dawn does not have the same vibe as the rest of the books nor does it have as much action but surprisingly it didn't bothered me. I loved getting to know Chaol and Nesryn better as both of them are characters from the previous book, but also completely fell in love with Yrene & Sartaq.

I find the path Sarah J. Maas choose for Chaol absolutely amazing as the reader really gets to feel his self-hate after the incidents that happened in Adarlan, his sorrow after his mens death and the panic and fear he feels after losing the movements in his legs. I've never read a fantasy book where a characters can't walk and has to use a wheelchair therefor the fact that Maas represents the people that uses wheelchairs is so important and is something that definitely needs to take a bigger part in fantasy books.

The fact that the same Yrene Towers and Falkan from The Assassin's Blade are in this book made me so happy and really shows what an excellent author Sarah J. Maas is. To incorporate characters she wrote about sooo long ago (that we all loved) is baffling.

⭐️I give "Tower of Dawn" by Sarah J. Maas 5/5 stars!
