Okay, I’m completely late to the party on this one. THRONE OF GLASS is an epically HUGE series. You’ve probably read it. So I won’t add to the already bloated canon of fangirl reviews.
Well, maybe just a bit.
Celaena Sardothien is a beautiful, hugely talented assassin. She’s been locked up in a hard labor camp for crimes against the crown. So when Prince Dorian shows up with an offer, really any offer, Celaena takes it without looking back. She’s to compete to be the King’s champion. But what treacherous deceit does the foul King have in store for her? And can she survive the mythical monster that is roaming the halls of the castle, gutting competitors before they finish their tasks?
Maas is a very talented writer (obviously). It’s a long book, which I love, but you are completely engrossed from page one. I love the mystical bits, I love the mystery, I love finding out what deep dark secrets made Celaena the dark assassin she is. Plus the obvious love triangle is a fun diversion, too, though not really why I bought in to the series.
If you love fantasy, sorcery, chosen one myths or good old-fashioned love triangles, this is the book for you. I mean, there are maps for goodness’ sake. MAPS.
I got you there, didn’t I?
Go buy it now! There are umpteen more books, and from what I hear they only get better. Whee!
