review 2018-04-23 01:26
Book 5 is sexually explicit, and Chaol is 22. Goodreads censored this review.
Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass) - Sarah J. Maas

UPDATE 09-12-17: Tower of dawn is one of the MOST read NEW ADULT READ THIS WEEK , MAAS HAD ALSO ONE OF THE MOST READ BOOKS IN THE EROTICA GENRE LAST WEEK 
description
I took screenshots, because those lists change every week. THRONE OF GLASS ISN'T A YOUNG ADULT SERIES even though they toned down the erotic scenes for this book. Young adult hasn't ever been a sexless genre contrary to popular belief, but Maas books are NEW ADULT and her content is erotic, not just graphic, it's erotic. 

description

UPDATE 09-15-17
Please check my friend Emer's review. I agree with her review
in so many accounts
Emer's A court of wing and ruin review

ORIGINAL RANT

NOT A SINGLE SERIES WRITTEN BY SARAH J. MAAS IS REALLY A YOUNG ADULT SERIES. All are new adult/adult and, in the case of A Court of Mist and Fury, erotica/erotic romance

Don't let some booktubers, Kirkus reviews, common sense media or some goodreads users tell you otherwise. They might have their own reasons to lie about this issue but trust only the reviews where the reviewers are willing to mention that this book isn't young adult or that mention the sexual content.

I repeat

NONE OF SARAH J. MAAS SERIES IS YOUNG ADULT. Perhaps book 1 and 2 of the throne of glass series have some young adult elements, but the rest of the book in the series is new adult. 

One more time I'll say this just because I still get reports of 12-13 YO kids reading A Court of Mist and Fury and also several libraries and bookstore have shelved Maas books in the YA section.

THRONE OF GLASS IS A NEW ADULT SERIES EXCEPT FOR THE FIRST TWO BOOKS, the rest is heavy on adult content. If any BOOKTUBER, Book blogger or Goodreads user (PLUS COMMON SENSE MEDIA AND KIRKUS REVIEWS) tells you otherwise it's because they are lying through their teeth. Don't trust them. Do your own research. You can start by reading pages 21, 22, 530, 531, 532, 533 of the harcover american version of A Court of Mist and Fury


Be careful if you're planning on giving any of Maas series as a book gift to an underage reader. It will make you look like a pervert because it's like giving Fifty shades of Gray. No I'm not exagerating. Several HONESTgoodreads users have mentioned Sarah J. Maas sexual scenes in their book reviews. Of course those reviews aren't visible as honest reviewers are rarely popular.

If sexual content doesn't bother you or you are of age then I think you are okay reading both series. I think A court of thorns and roses is the best one of the two. 

If you don't feel comfortable reading sexual content, or you aren't of age yet to read sexual content avoid the Throne of glass series and the A court of thorns and roses series.

If any teacher or librarian is reading my review, please be aware that trusted websites like Goodreads, Common sense media and Kirkus reviews have covered up the information regarding the sexual content and genre of Maas books.Maybe by mistake. But don't let them fool you. 

A COURT OF MIST AND FURY (book 2 of ACOTAR) A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN (book 3 of ACOTAR) EMPIRE OF STORMS (book 5 of Throne of glass) and TOWER OF DAWN (book 6 of Throne of glass) AREN'T SUITABLE FOR UNDER 18 READERS 

All Sarah J. Maas series are new adult, meaning that they portray certain themes of the young adult genre but their characters are older and the violence and the sex are more in tune with adult reads. Most libraries and bookstores don't have a new adult section so Maas books should go to the adult section even though they are new adult. 

More on what New adult is HERE (Notice that SJM books are among the most read of the new adult genre)

description

New Adult fiction bridges the gap between Young Adult and Adult genres. It typically features protagonists between the ages of 18 and 30.

The genre tends to focus on issues prevalent in the young adult genre as well as focusing on issues experienced by individuals between the area of childhood and adulthood, such as leaving home for university and getting a job.

New adult is typically considered a subcategory of adult literature rather than young adult literature. Some popular new adult titles include The Magicians by Lev Grossman, A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowel


Bloomsburry Children, the publishing company, has added some warnings in some editions in some countries. Those warning aren't present in all the editions of Maas books so be careful. If possible, Spread the voice, because pornographic content is often used by child abusers to lure their victims. Please don't let these books stand in the children section of your local bookstore.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: Some GR librarians will tell you that content and age of a book won't matter for a book to be considered as long as a young adult imprint is behind the publication of said book. 

Don't believe them. Fifty shades of grey and in this case Fifty shades of fae won't ever be young adult books even if there's a "children" imprint behind it. Besides Children and young adult are different genres so the deceiving name of the publishing company doesn't count if they are going to publish erotic content.

Also please don't comment in my review telling me "I'm x years old and I'm not disturbed by erotic content" or "I'm a parent and I let my kids read fifty shades of grey". Good for you but even if what you said was true, everyone is different. Some kids can handle adult content others can't, some 9-13 YO will keep buying books in the YA section of the bookstores and libraries because parents have the wrong impression (maybe because there are so many YA books turned movie) that YA is a sexless genre safe for 9-14 YO to read. Which in the case of Sarah J Maas and other New adult authors isn't the case.

UPDATE 09-19-17
Thanks to Belle for sharing this picture, but how come an EROTIC/NEW ADULT series is a CHILDREN'S best seller? 
description

People please don't get decieved. Honest reviewers, please do your research and post a HONEST REVIEW that mentions the erotic content of the series (not this particular book) so parents, librarians, teachers and readers can make informed decisions about this series. Stop covering up for the publishing company.

04-22-2018
I understand Goodreads censoring my review to hide it from the main page as it seems they are playing into Bloomsburry agenda. But why hide it from my friends? I think it's responsibility of parents and readers to research what the content of a book is before buying/reading.  That's not a responsability of authors or publishers. But how are we the readers supposed to do that when Goodreads, Common sense media and some booktubers are so bent into hiding the information? Please Goodreads employees and editors, don't make it difficult for us the readers to find the appropiate information. Your DECISIONS should be considering ALL goodreads members's best interests in mind, not just a few authors and publishers interests in mind.

Tower of Dawn
Tower of Dawn - Sarah J. Maas Tower of Dawn - Sarah J. Maas 3.5 stars

We don't look back. It helps no one and nothing to look back.

See I have this feeling that if I reread this series I won't like it...

I loved Chaol so much when I started this series so I was obviously going to give his book a chance, even though he let me down so hard in some of the previous books.
It wasn't bad but it got really boring at times. Or maybe I'm expecting too much at this point. And I think I wanted this book to be shorter.. I feel it could be 200 less pages and we still wouldn't have missed something from the story.

Aaaaanyway.. Maybe I'm just grumpy because my queen Manon wasn't in it, who knows..

Tower of Dawn Book Review
Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass) - Sarah J. Maas

3.5/5 stars. This might be my least favorite one yet. I enjoyed it but I didn't love it. I liked Chaol and Irene. I could care less about the other characters. It was different seeing this series in another perspective. I do feel like not a ton happened in this book. A lot of Chaol being hurt and trying to recover from his injury (which I don't mind). I think, at this point, I'm just ready for this series to finally end.

Review: Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass #6) by Sarah J. Maas
Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass) - Sarah J. Maas

 

In the next installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, follow Chaol on his sweeping journey to a distant empire.

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.

 

 

 

I was not looking forward to this book as much as the previous books, even though Chaol is one of my favorite people in the Throne of Glass series. But I just couldn’t see how an entire book about him and Nesryn could be entertaining. But she done it again and sucked me into the world and I liked the book so much more than I thought I would. I will make this review short ( I know I say that every time) but there is really not much to say without spoiling anything . Maas really tried to make us dislike Chaol more and more in the previous books but she made up for it in this one. While not all his behavior is excused we get a better understanding off him and his past. Much of the book we see the broken and dark and broody Chaol but we follow him as he recovers , not only his body but his soul. Finally we get to see a much lighter, relaxes and happier Chaol. The one we first met in book one . Nesryn, I must admit I was never a huge fan of her. I just never saw a why she is there, she came out of nowhere and basically was just a filler for Chaol. I started to like her or just be okay with her, but I must say , reading this book I noticed that I really didn’t care about her. It is not that I didn’t like her because I do, sort of and she is a great character for the most part. But overall I really could care less about her. What I do like about her though is her family and friends values, that she is loyal and that is a big part. Other than that I had a hard time staying focused reading her parts just because I’m just not a huge Nesryn fan. We shall see what happens in the next and final book. We also meet some new characters and tribes, some of them have bigger part than others but I think in the end they will all be equals. At least I hope. I did like the kingdom and its people but some things just seemed off. I did however like Yrene, she sort if reminded me of Aelin when we first meet her as Celaena in a Throne of Glass . As most of the female character that Sarah J Mass creates, she is strong and powerful and can hold her own , I liked the whole self-defense class storyline. While I have not read The Assassin's Blade yet ( I do own it) I still figured certain things out. Sartaq, was another character I could have cared less about, I liked him, he was funny , charming and has some fighting skill besides riding a giant chickens but overall I don’t really see the point other than gaining more allies and more people for the upcoming battle. Overall, like I said I liked the book more than I thought I would, we learn a lot more about Maeve and about the Vlag. I think we get a general idea how huge this battle will be when it happens. All major players and some are now lined up ready to take on this major enemy. We get plenty of action but also some down time and romance and humor. I rate this book 4★ just because I was not a huge Nesryn fan and some things seemed like fillers more than anything. I cannot wait for the next and sadly last book in the series to see how it all ends. 4 ★

 

 

Some of my favorite quotes

“I will cherish it always. No matter what may befall the world. No matter the oceans, or mountains, or forests in the way.”

 

 

***

 

“Don’t you waste one heartbeat being afraid of a coward who hunts women in the darkness,” Chaol snapped at her.”

 

***

 

“Aelin would have been beside herself with glee.” *** “It was agony and despair and fear. It was joy and laughter and rest. It was life, all of it...”

 

 

***

 

“This will be the great war of our time,” Kashin said quietly. “When we are dead, when even our grandchildren’s grandchildren are dead, they will still be talking about this war. They will whisper of it around fires, sing of it in the great halls. Who lived and died, who fought and who cowered.”
