Kingdom of Ash: Summary

Imagine an inferno of war, love, sacrifice, and a queen determined to save her world. Welcome to "Kingdom of Ash" by Sarah J. Maas, where the land of Erilea teeters on the brink of annihilation. Aelin Galathynius— once an assassin, now a queen— finds herself shackled in an iron coffin, a pawn in a deadly game of power.

Her magic suppressed, her spirit unbroken, the fire-breathing queen must summon strength from the darkest corners of her past. The kingdom is besieged, allies are scarce, and enemies lurk in every shadow. Aelin's court must traverse through the haunting kingdoms, rallying forces, negotiating with Fae, pirates, and ancient powers that slumber beneath continents.

Bound by bonds of love, loyalty, and a desperate will to survive, the court of Terrasen races against time, for the looming war promises only destruction. In this brutal crescendo of Maas's Throne of Glass series, the line between doom and salvation blurs, and every path exacts a heart-wrenching toll.
