The best comparison I can make for this is it is like the Hu nger Games for Fantasy
But better. So much better. This book is *insert every possible positive adjective here* (and book two is even better!)
What is great about the protagonist (among many things) is that she
is a morally ambiguous character. She is not the innocent, wide-eyed
female protagonist that many book series follow behind. Caelena is, to
put it as clearly as the book does, an assassin. That is what she does,
and that is what makes her such an interesting character to follow. Maas
is a wonderful storyteller that has left me begging for the next book. I
cannot get enough of her books.
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.
