Empire of Storms (ToG#5)


Final Summary:


Total Hours to Read: Just over 9

--Average pages per minute: 1.24


Sex/Romance: Guys. This book. The previous books had some minor stuff that I could blush at but move on from. This book was more erotic than that one actual erotic romance book I made the mistake of reading. There was one chapter that was almost entirely one enormous sex scene. There was so much sex throughout this entire book, AND I HAD TO READ ALL OF IT. In movies, you can look away and just listen for important information. In a book, you have to read everything to make sure you don't miss any small details that might be thrown out. (If it helps you, you don't have to read any of the sex scenes. I can tell you right now that there is nothing of any importance said in amongst all the grossness.)

Also covered: rape, homosexual and heterosexual relationships/mates, prostitution (willing and otherwise, homosexual and heterosexual).


Language: Same as the others. Light use of mild language.


Violence: Same as the others. Assassin protagonist + massive war + forces of pure evil = lots of violence.


Thoughts: Look, I LOVE the plot and the characters. I would die for the character arcs and relationship progressions. And above all, I live and breathe for the absolute calculation and cleverness of the main character. But, I absolutely hate thinking about sex. I think it's gross and I don't wanna read about people making out let alone getting it on. I especially don't want to read a play-by-play of every intimate detail of their sex session. I could barely get through it. I hoped that that would be it and I could move on, but nooOOoo. After the first time, it seemed like everyone else felt like they just had to get in on it. So they did. Aside from that, though, this book was fantastic. Amazing plot progressions, twists and turns, answers we've been dying to know and new questions all at the same time. It feels like we are in a massive spiral. We started so small and everything keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger. I cannot wait to see how everything concludes in the next two books!

In the end: 3 out of 5 stars. She waited until there was almost no way we could back out before she threw all the sex at us, and I feel kind of taken advantage of. Ambushed. Bushwhacked. Assaulted. Please excuse me while I go pray fervently for the cleansing of my soul eyes...
