645 pages of absolute, blissful heaven. That's what I call "Queen of Shadows". 645 pages of unexpected twists, world and character building and so much more. This is probably the best book in the "Throne of Glass" series up to now. It's amazing that somehow, Maas keeps on getting better at this. Book 5? Where are you?
