So this year was meant to be the year where all of our hearts would get broken. Yet Sarah J. Maas has dropped this bombshell that I don’t think any of us can deal with. She has just released some bookish news that will leave your heart broken.
This year was meant to bring us 3 massive big Maas novels which I think everyone was either scared yet excited to read. I know I was. In May, the conclusion(?) for the ACOTAR trilogy (which include A Court of Thorns and Roses, A Court of Mist and Fury, A Court of Wings and Ruin) is coming out on May 2nd. Then in June, we would get a novella (around 200 pages) in Chaol’s perspective after the events of Queen of Shadows and during Empire of Storms. And then the last book from the ToG (Throne of Glass) series would be released in September which will make this year to be the most emotional year ever.
However, on Sarah J. Maas‘s Instagram today (1st Feb), she made a massive reveal that effects Chaol‘s novella and the last Throne of Glass book. She kept it a secret that the Chaol novella (which we still have no name for) is no novella no more, it is a full-length novel all about Chaol after Queen of Shadows! But with this news, it brings the release date for the last ToG book to be pushed back to the book will now be released in May 2018. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m so happy we are getting a full novel in Chaol‘s perspective. After the events of QoS, I think it would have been rushed if we only got a couple of hundred pages following his adventures down south, how he deals with everything after the events of QoS and how he helps Aelin, that leads to the events at the end of Empire of Storms. But with this, the last ToG book is so far away and I think everyone can agree that they need it ASAP as the cliffhanger in Empire of Storms killed basically everyone. The release date of the Chaol‘s novel will be on the 5th September.
I feel so conflicted with this. I’m really happy with getting a full novel, but would it be enough till the release of the last ToG book? I hope so.
What do you think of this news? Do you think it is a good idea that it’s happened? Comment below and let us know what you think!
