Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Format (That I Read It):



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.

Initial Thoughts:

Everybody and their cousins are reading or have read this series. I bought it quite a while ago and finally decided to pick it up. I just needed something kickass after my Lady Midnight hangover.


I wish I didn't know anything about this book going into it. I think it ruined my enjoyment. I had too many expectations going into it. There aren't many people who love this series and rave about it. I know people say the series gets better as it goes on and I really hope that's true. I expected to go in falling in love with the characters instantly but that didn't happen. It took me a while to get into and even longer to really love the characters, That being said I love Chaol! I definitely on his team. There was something about him. But for me overall I didn't think the book was all that spectacular. I may get hate for this but it's my own opinion. Nothing crazy or unpredictable happened. I feel like I've read the plot a millions times in countless other books. Still there were parts that made me laugh and moments that grabbed my attention. Even still I will be continuing the series. I've already bought Crown of Midnight and I can't wait to see what happens especially to Chaol.
