When I read this, the first in a series, I was in such a young adult fantasy type of mood and this novel delivered on all those counts and so many more. From the very first chapter I knew that this book was going to be something special, the main character was a strong, feisty woman that no matter how many times she had been beaten down, kept getting back up. Full of adventure, magic and superbly written Throne of Glass is an addicting and wonderful read. If you need a little fantasy in your life this is the book for you. A true masterpiece.

Description


In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king's champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien.

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass--and it's there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.

Praise For…


"Readers seeking the political intrigue of Kristen Cashore's Graceling and its sequels or the deadly competition at the heart of The Hunger Games will find both in Maas's strong debut novel. . . . The verve and freshness of the narration make for a thrilling read." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review  

"A teenage assassin, a rebel princess, menacing gargoyles, supernatural portals and a glass castle prove to be as thrilling as they sound. . . . Celaena is still just a teenager trying to forge her way, giving the story timelessness. This commingling of comedy, brutality and fantasy evokes a rich alternate universe with a spitfire young woman as its brightest star." -- Kirkus Reviews 

"Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas is a tale full of surprises and shadows, where deadly seeds are sown with the promise of more danger to come. A fascinating glimpse into the dark side of Cinderella." -- Colleen Houck, the NYT Bestselling author of the Tiger’s Curse series
