Maasverse Theories

As with everything I do, this is a spoliers-heavy article about various universe theories. I’m starting with Throne of Glass because that’s what I’ve re-read first.

For a bit this will function as a somewhat, semi-organised brain dump as I wrap my head around all the information. I am not someone who does super-deep dives into universes, this is a curiosity for me and I don’t expect all this information (particularly if I start including timelines) to be accurate. So anything that should be updated, added or included, please comment!

My Hot Takes

  • All of the species in Crescent City are Fae.
  • I’m torn whether Amren is the seventh Asteri or a Valg princess.
  • One of the things the Asteri say in House of Sky and Breath is there was a world where they reached their hand out to ask them to come and they weren’t recognised again, and these people were duped into coming back under the Asteri’s power. I’m thinking this is Aelin’s world, and potentially also why we haven’t seen the other Fae island in Midgard.
  • How can Fenrys winnow?
  • Where do Lorcan’s powers come from?
  • I think even in Feyre’s world, the power is muted, that even they are maybe under the Asteri’s control, less obviously. Not sure how. But in Aelin’s universe they’re the only ones that talk about tunnelling down into their power, essentially taking a Drop each time they draw their power? Not sure if this is deliberate or an artefact of Sarah J. Maas writing Throne of Glass first and not fully mapping out the mechanisms of the magic across worlds.
  • Who are the gods in Aelin’s world? The ones that were going to take Erawan as prisoner back to the world they were returning to?
  • Rhysand is Valg or Valg-adjacent. Azriel is more like a witch or Lorcan.
  • Hunts brow tattoo is the equivalent of a Valg collar
