In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king's champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien.

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass—and it's there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world. 


Action. Adventure. Suspense.

THRONE OF GLASS is the type of books that you hear about, and yet don’t get around to reading it, until few books later. That was me. I heard about it for a while, and once I read it, I wished that I read it sooner. This is 2nd time reading the book, I have read it in 2017 the first time, and wanted to re-read it so could read other books in the series. I loved it, as much as I did the first time that I read it, if not more. There were a lot of going on and quite bit of suspense, and that is the type of books that I adore. Stories that will have you keep guessing, and one of the reasons that you will keep on turning the pages. Like Celaena, I wondered who keep on killing the champions and in such brutal way and keeping you wondering why, if there were reasons behind those murders. Despite reading this book for the second time, I couldn’t put the book down because I was hooked to the story once again. THRONE OF GLASS is a book that will have you thinking, wondering. You will be eager to get the next book in series, from the moment that you reach the ending of the book.

Celaena, first of all I love that name and it fits her perfectly. I loved this character from the start, the attitude, and how she was determined to be champion. I am aware that she was doing it for her freedom, but even other champions ended up dead, she didn’t give up, she kept on going. I was rooting her from the start, to win. Even if I knew that whatever the King had planned for her if she won, it couldn’t be anything good. . Even at the end, she kept on trying, she still didn’t give up despite what was happening with her. I was hoping that someone would notice and come to her rescue. I cannot even begin to imagine, to attempt to fight in her condition. I was starting to think that she wouldn’t make it, that it would be the end. I was terrified for her. I can’t imagine how Prince Dorian felt, having to watch her and knowing that there wasn’t anything he could do to help her. I was still hoping that she find some way out of the situation. The descriptions were some vivid, that I could feel all the pain, the emotions that she was feeling.

Chaol and Prince Dorian, I am not sure who I liked more. I don’t think I would be able to choose between the two of them if I had to. I do know that both Chaol and Prince Dorian cared deeply for Calaena. I have a strong feeling that she cared about both of them too, even if she didn’t want to at first. I cannot help but wonder who she would end up with, if Chaol would finally admit his feelings for her, or if she would figure out. If I had pick who I would pick for her, I don’t think I could because I think they are both a good fit for her, at least right now. I am curious what is going develop between them in the next book. Another favorite of mine in this book was Princess Nehemia and her friendship with Calaena, she needed a friend like her. I feel as if she never had such great friend, like Princess Nehemia. I believe that what two of them have is a true friendship, and I hope that it stays that way.

THRONE OF GLASS was magical, extraordinary. I couldn’t get enough. I cannot wait to see what happens next with everyone, especially Calaena, Prince Dorian, Chaol and Princess Nehemia. If you love fantasy, this is a book that you should pick up. I recommended to everyone.
