Review: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
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.
Alright, I know I am crazy late to the Sarah J. Maas party, but this book was definitely well worth the wait. There were things I absolutely loved, and a thing or two I loathed but overall this story was amazing! We all know how much I loath a love triangle; however, I don’t think I have ever truly been so captivated by the triangle. Dorian and Chaol are both swoony, wonderful, witty, sexy, and dreamy. I could go on for days and even though I was cheering for Dorian, I was also cheering for Chaol, I was truly torn…hell, I still am. There was giggle worthy banner and waiting 70% for the first kiss was sooooooooo worth the wait!
Celaena was absolutely a bad-*ss assassin; however, I wanted more action, violence, killing, and just general epic-ness. Throne of Glass is an enthralling story that is the perfect set up to the sequel, I am intrigued by the magic that still exists in the land, I am most certainly interested in the love story that is taking place, I want to know more about Nehemia and how her story is going to play out; needless to say, I will be reading the second book because I want answers. There are just a million questions that are unanswered and I need answers!!!!!
