Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas Review

Throne of Glass Sarah J Maas | Bloomsbury | Pub: 8/2/12


“There was good in people – deep down, there was always a shred of good. There had to be.”

Well Natalie and I have taken the dive into our Throne of Glass buddy read. While you could absolutely tell this book was Sarah J Maas’ first book, it was still such a delight to read.

Celaena is a deadly assassin, rotting away in a terrible mine for her crimes. Until the Crown Prince comes to see her with a proposition she cannot refuse. Compete to work for the king or sit in the mines and die. Easy choice, right?

The competition to work for the king involves a whole lot of criminals and Celaena is the only woman. Then you have Dorian- the Prince and Chaol- Captain of the Guard and they both sound incredibly handsome and smart and the way Dorian, Chaol and Celaena develop throughout the book… SO GOOD.

This first book in the series was not very fantasy and was pretty slow to get going but once you get to the competition starting, things really escalate. I am so excited to see where the rest of the series brings us. All I keep hearing is the end of the series is EPIC.

Win or lose, she is about to discover her true destiny. But will her assassin’s heart be melted?
