Review: Throne of Glass

Full of forbidden magic, artful humor, and twists readers won’t see coming, Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas is an intricately woven adventure all readers will love.

At 18 years old, Celaena Sardothien is one of the most accomplished assassins in Adarlan. Her biggest problem: she’s currently trapped in Endovier, the kingdom’s most heavily guarded slave prison. However, when the Crown Prince visits and offers to trade her freedom for winning his father’s competition to find his new champion assassin, Celaena sees her chance. Pitted against the most deadly warriors, assassins, and thugs from across the kingdom, Celaena must prove herself once and for all. Soon discovering that the other competitors are the least of her problems, Celaena learns that she is in for much, much more than she bargained for.

A riveting and clever fantasy novel featuring an extremely elaborate, well-constructed plot, Celaena’s story will ensnare readers from beginning to end. Comprised of witty comebacks, a strong and unapologetic female lead, and a series of schemes worthy of Tyrion Lannister, readers won’t be able to put this book down. With the approaching release of the sixth book this fall, Throne of Glass has remained one of my most highly anticipated series since Harry Potter, continuing to boast of a hoard of readers who eagerly await what is sure to be an epically thrilling, yet bittersweet conclusion to a truly marvelous series.
