*Throne of Glass* by Sarah J. Maas
Published by Bloomsbury
Release August 7th, 2012
Celaena Sardothien has never been one to take orders from royalty. But
when the Crown Prince makes her his champion in a competition to find the
best assassin in Adarlan, Celaena can’t refuse. Not because of the armed
guards, or even because of the charming prince and intriguing Captain of
the Guard. No, Celaena can’t refuse because of the bargain the prince gives
her.
If Celaena wins the competition, she will be freed from the Salt Mines
of Endovier, where she was forced to work as a slave due to her crimes. And
Celaena knows without a doubt that she will win. Yet upon her arrival to
the castle made entirely out of glass, Celaena realizes that she has to
work harder than ever if she wants to win against her intimidating male
competitors. But soon, her competitors aren’t all she has to worry about.
Something dangerous is in the castle– and it’s slowly killing the
remaining champions. Celaena now must fight for both her freedom and
survival in a world full of betrayal, deceit and magic.
I loved loved loved this book! I’d been debating buying it for quite a
while and when I got a Barnes and Noble gift card for Christmas…. well I
knew what I was getting. With a snarky, kick-butt heroine, and a great
romance set in a world where deceit and betrayal are the norm, Sarah J.
Maas wrote a marvelous book. *Warning, major gushing about this book ahead!
*First off, Celaena is one of the best heroines of all time. At the
beginning, she seems very cocky, but as the story kept going, I got the
feeling that it was just a front she put on to protect herself. I loved how
she’d do anything for the people she cares about, and I think it’s great
that Celaena has her flaws too. She’s just so realistic!
On to the romance. Oh goodness where do I begin? Chaol, the Captain of
the Guard is mysterious and rather intriguing. He’s very protective of
Celaena, sometimes excessively so. In my opinion, he’s really sweet, and I
fell in love with him almost immediately. Then there’s Dorian, or in other
words, the Crown Prince. Dorian is everything you’d expect a prince to be;
charming, handsome, entitled. At the beginning, I wasn’t so sure about him
but soon I was loving him almost as much as I loved Chaol….almost. 🙂
Overall, *Throne of Glass *has earned a spot of honor on my bookshelf
due to it’s tough yet kind characters, stellar romance and it’s brilliantly
evil world. I feel like there are so many good things I’m forgetting to
mention so there’s only one way for you to know how great this book really
is….read it!!
