Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas jumps right into the story with action and emotion. Sarah J. Maas continues writing with her clever sense of humor! Several characters and their stories keep building and growing throughout this book. The comments about a peaceful day (page 290) and eating fish (page 291) made me laugh out loud. On page 295, the magnificent writing brings Aelin’s piano playing to life! Intrigue, suspense and complicated relationships kept me on the edge of my seat. A wonderful ending to a new and promising, hopeful beginning!
