Throne of Glass - Sarah J. Maas10

Review :: Throne of Glass

Written by Tim

I don't say this very often but... "Throne of Glass" is better than Artemis Fowl, The Hunger Games, The Curse Workers, Percy Jackson and some other fantastic series combined!!! I really, honestly... don't know how Sarah J. Maas can write such a book. I think this must be one of the three best books I've ever read! Maas creates characters, adventures, worlds and much more which appeal to the imagination! How can she do this? You can't say it's good, or fantastic, or magnificent, or[fill in by yourself]. Those are words who cannot even describe the essence of the story. As one of the official reviews on the Internet said: "I believe the word 'unputdownable' was created for this book"! And even that's wrong, in my opinion. If I ever lose this book, I'm prepared to travel the world just to find a copy of it. Ms. Maas: if you ever read this: I believe you are one of the best writers in history AND I CAN'T WAIT TO READ THE NEXT BOOK!

Throne of Glass

Looking for the teen girl version of Game of Thrones? Find it in this sweeping fantasy debut — that already has thousands of loyal online fans.

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men — thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.   Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.   Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.
