I purchased the whole series on kindle and when this last book released I was only 10 chapters in and I decided I'm going to support Sarah and get hard cover editions aswell, I have never purchased physical editions of anything but I have over 600 books on kindle. So with that in mind I read reviews on Amazon and I found all reviews for the content (kindle) but non for the physical hard cover product.
If you are like me and wanted to know about the hard cover version of this product here is a little bit from a non physical book buyer (normally).
The cover is made of a thick paper wrap very smooth texture, Satin finish with words embossed in a gloss finish. Unlike the other books in the series the cover texture is different more smooth the others have a coating on the paper that gives the impression of smooth rubber so to speak,
Taking the paper cover wrapping off is a black paper textured hard cover with silver lettering of the title on the spine, The front cover of the last book has SJM in a cursive font and a sword under the letters, An art design (of smoke I'm guessing) for each new chapter is a nice touch (kindle version does not have this) can definitely tell you are on the next chapter.
I have attached a couple of pictures for reference.
Shipping was fast for W.A surprisingly but it could have just been abnormal. Description and Dimensions are correct. No issues that I have found.
Hope this helps someone who would like info on physical hard cover version.
What an amazing wrap up to the series!! This book really showcased how brilliant this author truly is. You almost need to read the series several times to pick up on all of the hints and puzzle pieces that were laid out from book 1 all the way through to the end - and in fact would likely pick up on something new with each re-read. This sort of planning, especially with the length of the books, is nothing short of amazing.
I don't want to try and recap what happens in this book, because this was such huge read and so much happened! But I will say all of the plot threads were tied off, and any new ones resolved as well. I loved how it all came together in the final chapters, and the ending was both heartbreaking and beautiful.
Without a doubt I will be reading this series again and again, and recommending it to family and friends, as well as my kids when they're old enough. This is one of those timeless series' that has a bit if something that everyone would enjoy.
SJM has outdone herself The emotions she brings out in this book are truly heartwrenching, and also captivating but more importantly the ending has me content Bittersweet to have it end but so very happy to have been able to read this series, feel the journey I still have a few questions Especially about her falling through worlds The man described to slow her down seemed very close to Rhysand Very curious to find out if she linked that on purpose And Dorian in a female body, his thoughts had me screaming with laughter So very thankful and appreciative for this rollercoaster of a series, so witty, and well planned, all those details to work around and combine! Again thank you SJM Truly a pleasure to read your lifes work
This series has changed my life and this book is without a doubt the most epic and suspenseful final series novel anyone could want. Sarah J Maas is an amazing writer with amazing stories to tell and this book is no exception, just when you think the plot is coming together, another curve ball is waiting just around the corner and the reader is constantly left wondering how their favourite characters could possibly make it to the end. Prepare to have your heart broken and rebuilt; over and over again. Favourite book of the series!
Very sad to see the end of this series. There were some heart breaking parts but overall I am satisfied with the ending. Probably the best series I have read in 10 or so years. I loved the character development. The girl in Throne of glass is so different from the queen she becomes. I highly recommend this series to fantasy lovers. I think it will take me awhile to stop thinking of the 13.
I couldn’t hope for a better ending, the entire series has had me ensnared from the beginning, amazing characters, twists and adventure. I would have liked to read more about what happens to these characters down the line, perhaps there will be a spin off?
Update. It WORKS!! I have a whole new news feed. I’m seeing posts from people I haven’t seen in years. Here’s how to bypass the system FB now has in place that limits posts on your news feed. Their new algorithm chooses the same few people - about 25 - who will read your posts. Therefore, I ask you all a favor so I can see your news feed and you can see mine. Hold your finger down anywhere in this post and "copy" will pop up. Click "copy". Then go your page, start a new post and put your finger anywhere in the blank field. "Paste" will pop up and click paste. This will bypass the system. Thank youUpdate. It WORKS!!
Omg I ugly cried, I sniggered quietly and laughed out loud. I got my heart broken and healed in this final book. I got it the day it was released but I forced myself to reread the series before starting. Once I got into it I couldn’t stop.
