He had come for her. She held his gaze as she grabbed her own dagger and cut her palm, right over the scar she’d given herself at Nehemia’s grave. And though she knew he could read the words on her face, she said, “To whatever end?”
He nodded, and she joined hands with him, blood to blood and soul to soul, his other and coming around to grip her tightly. Their hands clasped between them, he whispered into her ear,
“I claim you, too, Aelin Galathynius.”

My Sarah J Maas and ACOSF thoughts:
Okay this stuff has been swirling round in my head so I’m going to post this and be done with it.
-I’m not a Maas anti but I also don’t ‘stan’ anyone- Maas’s books have been my obsession since I was TWELVE and the fandom was like three pieces of fan art in google images of Celeana and Chaol. But at the same time as I’ve grown up I have been let down by her books in some way.
-first of all she is an extremely talented author: her writing, plotting and character building is phenomenal and never fails.
-She seems like a lovely woman with a lovely family and she also seems to be under a lot of stress from all her book deadlines and I hope that either the pressure from fans like us or the pressure from her publishing company relaxes and she feels less stress because after everything she’s achieved she shouldn’t be living under that much pressure.
-However: I don’t like the way she treats relationships between men and women or how she discusses sex in her books, especially with regards to women, or how she deals with mental health and especially where romance and mental health cross. I think the stories she creates can be heteronormative and sexist.
- her books always end with the girl marrying the guy and being ready to settle down and have kids (usually after loosing some or a lot of her powers). The end of her series feel like a swarm of heterosexuals all throwing on wedding rings and getting ready to push out babies. But this is what she likes writing and the fact that I don’t like reading it particularly didn’t make it ‘problematic’ or make her deserving of any hate.
- The men are always literally hundreds of years older which is just wierd to me and I don’t enjoy reading. And it keeps being repeated and the age gap just keeps getting bigger -from 300 with Rowaelin to 500 with Feysand and now 800 with Hunt and Bryce (if I’m not wrong).
- I think these problems really come out in the ACOTAR series more than ToG since ACOTAR seems more like romance novels set in a fantasy world whilst ToG was very high fantasy inspired and driven. I think a lot of her fans come for a strong fantasy book with a good side of romance and so the ACOTAR stories can grate a bit with some.
Some of the things that stick out to me are:
- Mor is supposed to be this goddess of war whereas Azriel’s main job is spying etc and yet during the war in ACOWAR Mor babysat feyre by the sidelines. reading about two women standing on a hill clutching their pearls and watching the big men fight made me really uncomfortable. Now before you type ‘but feyre wasn’t skilled enough yet or ......’ remember that Maas wrote this entire series- she could have changed it so that the women had more power, skill and ability or so that this weird sequence of battle scene speciation just wasn’t a thing.
- I knew that Nesta was going to help Feyre give birth (I thought using her powers not giving them up) however it was a beautiful moment and made sense character wise and structurally. But you can’t get mad at readers for being upset that they are reading this supposedly kick ass fantasy book where the ending is the main woman giving up all her phenomenal powers and changing her body to be able to have a guy’s babies- it is something that will be hard to read for a lot of readers who were hoping for a more female empowering story or people like me who just don’t like that plot line. I think in twenty years people will read ACOSF and definetly cringe at how women are presented and their stories are told. But the same can be said of Tolkien and I still enjoy his books.
- I got very upset during ACOSF when I was reading the bits about Nesta and Amren. I thought that Nesta had tried to sleep with Varian or slept with Tamlin when I first read about their fight but she just didn’t want to practise magic?? Amren called Nesta a ‘pathetic waste of life’ and their argument ended with Nesta on her KNEES APPLOGIZING . And I definetly thought Cassian saying he was ‘shackled’ to Nesta was going to be a bigger deal than it was- instead she felt guilty for using their deal to ask for space??? It felt like reading a story of a woman who in order to be loved has to learn to take being maltreated passively and become submissive in order to be accepted and it made me uncomfortable.
- in ToG I know a lot of people, myself included, didn’t like the way Aedion talked about Lysandra in his POV talking about his ‘last hunt’ etc and in Cresent City I got really annoyed when in response to Hunt discovering Bryce had once come close to committing suicide Fury said basically ‘she was a zombie and you saved her and woke her up’ I didn’t like romance being presented as the solution to depression and trauma and I think it is a common theme in Maas’s books.
- I don’t hate Maas for these things- in her books she explores intimately very senstive and complicated issues about mental health, self worth and relationships and since we’re two different people of course I’m not going to like how all these topics are dealt with etc. This is the problem with such emotional and complex media- the fact that I didn’t like it doesn’t mean it was trash or that I’m right - it just is what it is and no amount of typing on tumblr is going to change it. But I just wanted fans who were also uncomfortable with aspects of her story telling to feel less alone and since there’s all this cat fighting in the fandom (which I am not exempt from) I just wanted to say that you can enjoy content whilst still acknowledging it’s faults and flaws and where it portrays things in an unhealthy light. It’s okay to have problems with the series and it’s okay to not- it doesn’t have to be a fight it can just be a frank discussion.
- I also just wanted to say that I am obsessed with the Valkyries, the relationship between those three women was beautiful and powerful and exactly what I like to see in books marketed for women- solidarity and friendship and kicking ass at the forefront. I loved Nesta’s powers and her ability to Make those weapons and I love how she’s becoming a complete unstoppable warrior.

gods I so wish we could have gotten an aelin-aedion reunion before queen of shadows, in the palace like during either throne of glass or crown of midnight or just at some point before heir of fire started because just imagine the drama?? aedion thinks she’s dead but there’s no way in hell he wouldnt recognize her; they both think the other would hate them for what Adarlan made them become, chaol would have two ashryvers to deal with — it just would have had so much comedic and angsty potential

ACOWAR/HOEAB/HoF Connection Theory
So I’m rereading ACOWAR right now, and I’m at the part where Cassian and Feyre are visiting the Bone Carver.
In one single paragraph, SJM connects all three of her series:
“The Carver traced three overlapping, interlocked circles in the dirt.”
— The Bone Carver drew Bryce’s necklace from HOEAB.
When the Carver starts to talk about his siblings, he mentions his sister, the Weaver, but then he starts to talk about his brother, saying that “Koschei, too— confined and bound by his little lake on the continent.”
— In Heir of Fire, if I’m remembering correctly, Rowan takes Aelin into a cave for a new method of training. A cave, with a lake, and a legend of a monster dwelling beneath its surface. A monster that is bound to the cave, to that lake, and defends it’s home, but does not, or cannot leave.
And then in the next paragraph, I think the Carver starts talking about Aelin:
“Clever that Fae warrior.... No one remembers her name.” — Nameless is my price.
“She could not kill them in the end....They could only be contained.” — Aelin could not destroy the gods, so she trapped them using the wrydkeys.

The Assassin’s Blade Thoughts
Wow. I finished the book but oh my god. I’m glad I paused the timeline to jump back and see that before moving on in the series but I really want to destroy Arobynn Hamel. I mean I know the guys King of the Assassins and all but Sam of all people?? he didn’t deserve that at all and I understand Celaena’s feelings over the situation a lot better after reading what happened.
And now I’ve gotta move on to Queen of Shadows and after the ending of Heir of Fire??? i just know in my bones that was not the worst ending of the series to come and that’s saying something considering what the king did to Dorian and Sorcha... Uh Oh™️

Well, I finished the book and... no words literally no words just an incoherent screaming in my brain. Those first two books were hard to get through but I am so hooked on this story now

Chapter 54... oh my god, that was intense. But her promise to not be a monster, to be a light instead... That was so powerful
