Review: Sara J. Maas’s The Throne of Glass

     Celaena Sardothien has been trained as an assassin since she was eight. When she was captured at 17 and taken to the Endovier prison where most people don’t live more than a month, Celaena focuses on the only thing she can: staying alive. So when the Crown Prince and his Captain of the Guard come to visit her and offer her a way to earn her freedom, of course, Celaena says yes. All she has to do is defeat 23 of the kingdom’s best thieves and assassins, and she will become the King’s Champion with her freedom coming soon after. Sounds easy, right? Wrong.

     Besides the fact that both the Captain of the Guard and the Crown Prince have caught Celaena’s eye yet both seem to provoke her in their ways, there is dark magic roaming the hallways of the castle and more and more competitors are being murdered. With a foreign princess as one of her only allies, Celaena must discover as much as she can about the forbidden magic that has entered the castle without the king finding out. After all, magic has been banned for many years and the king doesn’t respond kindly to people who disobey the law….

     Sara J. Maas spins another breath-catching tale that has roots in the Cinderella fairytale but soon takes on a life of its own. The Throne of Glass will make you question authority and teach you that sometimes life isn’t fair, so you have to play by your own rules. The Throne of Glass is perfect for fans of the Hunger Games and Game of Thrones!
