Tower of Dawn rises up with the level of power, romance, adventure, suspense and soul that we have savored in the past in the books of Sarah J. Maas. The deeply resonating strengths that come from her characters return to inspire us and connect to those sacred places within us that hold the echoes of the memory that this is a place and a power that we remember from someone or somewhere. Nobody writes it like Sarah J. Maas.
Chaol Westfall has made his way to the court of the Khagan to ask for his help in fighting the forces of Erawan and with a hope that one of the renowned healers will be able to give him back the use of his legs.
In this palace a fair amount of intrigue is already present as one of the princesses has recently fallen to her death. The Queen is in mourning and the Khagan himself is furious with grief. The princes and princesses are watching each other and waiting to see who will be named as the Heir.
Chaol's request for troops and support is shoved aside as the Khagan isn't hearing anyone's needs at this time. But his request for healing is accepted and a healer, Yrene Towers, is asked to come to evaluate his condition and explore if he can be healed.
Yrene finds herself battling with Chaol as she reaches inside of him with her magic powers and discovers the darkness he holds. Again and again she will enter into his body to battle the demons.
This is an absolutely phenomenal tale of one epic battle of spirit, man and beast after another with the dark side unfurling its own powers from the bodies of unsuspected hosts. Who can conquer this evil force? Will the Khagan send his forces to fight with Aelin as she goes up against the darkest powers that are threatening their entire world?
Astonishing, powerful, romantic, and centered on otherworldly powers that come from deep within and offer sustenance, inspiration and reassurance that we each hold something this strong within us. There really is something phenomenal about the feminine forces.
Give me a pint of Haagen Daz mint chocolate chip ice cream and one of Sarah J. Maas's books and Nirvana is mine.

Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.
His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica--the stronghold of the southern continent's mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.
But what they discover in Antica will change them both--and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.--from the publisher
