Staff Reviews


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.

Description


The first book in New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas's sweeping fantasy saga - now available in hardcover with a new look to match the series

When magic has gone from the world, and a vicious king rules from his throne of glass, an assassin comes to the castle. She does not come to kill, but to win her freedom. If she can defeat twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition to find the greatest assassin in the land, she will become the king's champion and be released from prison.

Her name is Celaena Sardothien.

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. And a princess from a foreign land will become the one thing she never thought she'd have again: a friend. But something evil dwells in the castle-and it's there to kill. When her competitors start dying, horribly, one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the source of the evil before it destroys her world.

Praise For…


"Readers seeking the political intrigue of Kristen Cashore's Graceling and its sequels or the deadly competition at the heart of The Hunger Games will find both in Maas's strong debut novel. . . . The verve and freshness of the narration make for a thrilling read." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review  

"A teenage assassin, a rebel princess, menacing gargoyles, supernatural portals and a glass castle prove to be as thrilling as they sound. . . . Celaena is still just a teenager trying to forge her way, giving the story timelessness. This commingling of comedy, brutality and fantasy evokes a rich alternate universe with a spitfire young woman as its brightest star." -- Kirkus Reviews 

"Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas is a tale full of surprises and shadows, where deadly seeds are sown with the promise of more danger to come. A fascinating glimpse into the dark side of Cinderella." -- Colleen Houck, the NYT Bestselling author of the Tiger’s Curse series
