Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J. Maas


After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

My review:

I won this book in a giveaway on the official Facebook Throne of glass page (hardback, signed) and I was so happy I began to dance all around my apartment. I have been reading about this book on Goodreads and on various blogs so I was really excited and curious because I has a feeling I wont be disappointed. And I was right. "Throne of glass" is one of the best books I ever read and the sequel cannot come fast enough. I think I may actually die from anticipation in the next year until it comes out. I need a new dose of Celaena and Chaol and Dorian and I need to know more about queen Elena and what is the king plotting. The story, which was inspired with Cinderella, is a wonderful and interesting blend on fantasy, romance and action. I kept turning page after page unable to stop even when my eyes were getting heavy. Celaena is a character that pulls you in with her story, her pain and defiance and bravery yet she is also caring and funny and inteligent. And she also loves to read which made me love her character even more. I loved both captain Chaol Westfall and prince Dorian but Chaol is more appealing to me. He is the strong, silent, ruggedly handsome, mysterious type and after getting to know him a little during the book, I honestly hope Celaena falls in love with him. Prince Dorian is the opposite of Chaol, even though they are best friends, he is more charming, more funny, obviously handsome and even though he is a good guy I dont think he and Celaena are right for each other.
This book has magic, mystery, romance, intrigue, action, blood, friendship and it is simply put - AMAZING ! My new favorite of the year and I hope my review gets at least one more person to read this awesome book. You wont regret it, I can promise you that. And also I must compliment the writing style. Sarah J. Maas did a fantastic job.
