Reviews

Epic, witty and brilliantly plotted ... I am one of the thousands of people who read this book on fictionpress several years ago and fell in love with it, and I am counting down the days until it gets published * A fan on Goodreads *
It's not simply good, it's gorgeous and epic, and beautiful, and everything a book should be. Can't wait to get my hands on the polished version * A fan on Goodreads *
Having waited for a long time to see on Sarah's blog that this would be published, I almost started crying when I found out it would be - the only reason I didn't was that I had gone quite numb from excitement * A fan on Goodreads *
Like Cinderella's love story and the action and competition of The Hunger Games? Then this is the spectacular book for you! This book is going to be HUGE * Dark Readers *
Without a doubt the best fantasy book I have ever read in my life! * K-Books Review *
I loved everything about it, the strong-willed, kick-ass main character, the fast paced action, the plot that reeled you in but most of all the writing itself was rather astounding. I guarantee you will be blown away! * Read, Write and Read Some More *
This is a book which I found impossible to put down and which won me over heart and soul * Dream of Books *
Throne of Glass is the perfect escape to a fantasy world; an epic tale with all the romance of your favorite fairy tale, the action of The Hunger Games, and the political intrigue of Game of Thrones * The Examiner *
Adventure fantasy spiced with titillating romance * The Sunday Times *

Readers seeking the political intrigue of Kristen Cashore's Graceling and its sequels or the deadly competition at the heart of The Hunger Games will find both in Maas's strong debut novel. Celaena Sardothien is considered the best assassin in Adarlan, and she has been condemned to the salt mines for her work. As the story opens, she is plucked from slow execution by the calculating crown prince, Dorian, to be his candidate for champion, competing against "[t]hieves and assassins and warriors" to become an enforcer for the king. The stakes are freedom or death: win or return to the mines. Youthful captain Chaol is charged with preventing Celaena's escape, and though she fantasizes about killing him on occasion, he becomes a far different target of her attention. This is not cuddly romance, but neither is it grim. Celaena is trained to murder, yet she hasn't lost her taste for pretty dresses or good books, and a gleam of optimism tinges her outlook. Maas tends toward overdescription, but the verve and freshness of the narration make for a thrilling read. Ages 12-up. Agent: Tamar Rydzinski, Laura Dail Literary Agency. (Aug.)

Gr 9 Up-Celaena Sardothien may be young in years, but she has seen more than most men twice her age. She was raised to be an assassin and until her capture and imprisonment in the salt mines of Endovier, she was known as the Assassin of Adarlan and feared the world over. No one lasts long in the mines, and when she is offered the possibility of release in exchange for a mandatory, four-year conscription as a hired assassin to the king who conquered and enslaved her people, she has no choice but to comply and play a brutal game to win back the chance at freedom. In order to succeed she needs to outfight, outplay, and outlast 23 men in a competition that many would not survive. There are other forces at work as well: an ancient and outlawed magic that she doesn't understand; fellow competitors turning up murdered; and the three very different men who are attracted to her and frightened by her. Maas has created a strong and sympathetic character in Celaena, who is able to best men in a fight but is laid low by the return of her monthly cycle. The world-building is complex, as is the political intrigue. Fans of Tamora Pierce will find a lot to love here and will wait eagerly for the next installment.-Genevieve Gallagher, Charlottesville High School, VA (c) Copyright 2012.
