Throne of Glass
By now i’m sure you’ve come to realize that I have an obsession with Sarah Maas. 😀
Note this book is a point of view book so be warned!!
“Throne of Glass” is about a girl named Celaena Sardothien, the most famous assassin in Ardalan or she was. She has been called upon by the prince of Ardalan and is finally being taken away from Endovier. The King is holding a competition to find his new champion. The king’s round table has been asked to select someone who they wish to be the King’s new champion, but first they must compete to the death. Celaena was brought out of the mines the skeleton of a girl, she had a lot of training to do before she could even think about competing. Chaol, Captain of the King’s guard and Prince Dorian’s best friend, was in charge of watching over Celaena and in charge of her training. Celaena was told to take on a different name so no one would know who she truly was and would see her out first. She was lucky enough to make a friend and none other than Princess Nehemia of Eyllwe. Celaena is also finds a secret passage and is visited by Elana the First Queen of Ardalan with a message. The prince began to grow accustomed to the famous assassin, Lady Kaltain took notice and grew jealous. Celaena began her challenges, as did the killings, and did exactly as Chaol said and stayed in the middle never at the back of the pack or the front, she was meant to be seen as a silly girl who offered no threat. Cain who come in first at every challenge who she grew to hate. Every night before a challenge there would be a killing and they were always found the next day each body the same ripped to pieces, organs and blood everywhere. Celaena began to investigate on her own about what was really going on in this castle. The time was growing short and it was down to just the last 4 competitors. Celaena was determined to win this after beating her first opponent she was to fight Cain. Not before Duke Perrington, Cain’s sponsor, had tricked kaltain into poisoning Celaena before her fight. She manages to beat cain after taking a massive beating, but he still tries to kill her, Chaol steps in in time to put his sword through Cain. Kaltain is thrown into the dungeons after being blamed by the Duke for poisoning Celaena. After Celaena signs the king’s contract he threatens her that if she steps out of line he will kill Chaol and the Princesses family.
Wow! That was so long. I did not think there was that much to cover in the book but wow. Now this book is one that I go back to again and again when I find nothing better to read. I find this book is not the best of the series but it lays the foundation for the rest of the series. It is a very detailed book and it’s a lot to get through, but it’s packed with tons of amazing plot twisting events on every page there is hardly a moment when I want to quit reading. Every page you read is holding something important about the characters or is leading to the plot of the book. If you were looking for a book that is nothing but story then this would be your book. This book is full of diverse characters in which you grow fond of them all and you watch them struggle and grow as a person, I love when characters are written to be like real life people it makes things so much better for us readers. I love Sarah J Maas and this is the book that got me hooked on her and this series.
If you are a person who does not like to read book series I still recommend you try this book out because the series is not a let down at all!!
