In all honesty, I had no clue that there was to be an adult colouring book for Throne of Glass, to be released alongside Empire of Storms, until it rocked up in my mailbox as a gift from Bloomsbury, which was a lovely surprise. You could say I flicked through the pages of this colouring book multiple times when I first got it and still continue to do so, every now and again. I adore how there are snippets of the story on the left hand of the pages to explain each scene that is drawn and what is happening in the picture and what part of the book it’s from.
Although I love this book, there is one problem… I DON’T KNOW WHAT COLOUR EACH OF THE PICTURES AUGHT TO BE. HELP ME. I NEED TO KNOW. But other than that… This colouring book is perfect and at least the little story snippets to the side do come in handy at times for colour guidance, which is what I, oh so desperately want and need. So in other words, you could say I won’t be colouring in this copy any time soon unless I purchase a second copy and some fancy colouring pencils. Probably watercoloured pencils or textures.
For those of you who have not yet finished reading Throne of Glass through to Empire of Storms, I recommend not reading the snippets as they do contain some major spoilers, so just bare that in mind if you are partway through the series.
The artwork is gorgeous and I’ve found it to be fairly easy to identify whom each of the characters drawn represent. Oh and did I forget to mention the quality of the pages? The colouring pages are quite thick with a nice smooth texture, easy for colouring in, and the thickness ensures that no colours seep through the back of the page and unto the other side or that rough bumpy indentations appear on the other side from the pressure of the pencils. Which is something I’m really happy about. But there is one thing I have observed, and that is the fact that some of the pictures in it don’t quite seem to fit in the rest as they lack a bit of detail and the drawings seem to be a bit larger in comparison to the rest of the artwork.
