RATINGS & REVIEW

LOVED IT!
Throne of glass is a brilliant book with a strong plot line and engaging story. The main character (Celaena) is amazing, deadly and has more sass than Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games) and Tris Prior (Divergent) put together. It is a fantastic read and i would highly recommend it to anyone, especially people who love stories with action, adventure and powerful characters.

NOW ONTO BOOK TWO!!!
WITH THE THRONE OF GLASS, SARAH J MAAS HAS GIFTED THE WORLD WITH AN EXTRAORDINARY BOOK. For something that started out so slowly, and, dare I say it, so tediously as this one did, the second half was so startingly different, so refreshingly paced and plotted, that it more than made up for the indifferent beginning. Celaena Sardothien is known as the world's most gifted, and most brilliantly effective assassin. Somehow, she finds herself in a death labour camp (prison) and initially, her life is a living hell. She manages to survive long enough to make friends, and she is miraculously whisked away from this brutality to compete in a tournament to determine the "King's Champion". Even in the fictional world, irony is often your closest companion, and this adage holds true for our heroine. It turns out the King in question is the leader of Celaena's own mortal enemies, and it is the King's own Princely son (Darian) who has brought her to the royal court in order to compete. The prize is a promised life of complete and utter freedom ... but only after four years of soul destroying and utter obedience playing the role of King's assassin. So has anything changed? Her previous life was assassin by choice, and this new, proposed one, is assassin by order. I'll let you decide, fellow reader, after all, you bought the book. And yet she needs to win the tournament to be crowned as Champion (obviously) and apart from a multitude of references as to who is wearing what corset, what colour is *her* corset, and how on earth can she squeeze herself into *that* corset, oh it must be excruciating... The (only) juicy actiony bits of the book become the duels. But theres a small degree of politics to be had, too, but bear in mind that its not overly complicated due to the age of the book's intended audience. But as i said at the top of this review, the book really comes alive in the second half, and that is putting things mildly. The story ... and the castle it is set in ... reveals layers upon layers (upon layers) of mystique, age old legends, forbidden magic and even (*gasps*) hints of sex, and the mother of all doosies, a cute puppy. Seriously, I *love* that puppy. It doesn't take Einstein to imagine that the puppy will grow into a character that has a major role to play in future volumes, but who cares, right? Puppies rule, dogs rule, magic rules, and fantasy books rule. Oh, and Sarah J. Maas rules. And the ending to this book rules, too, by the way. Spoilers obviously prevent me from explaining myself, but do yourself a favour and read this book. Get to the end, and there's no force on earth that will be able to stop you from going straight onto the sequel. The good guys come out on top (or do they?) love is lost (or is it?) the bad guys are beaten (but are they?) but there's one thing in this review I am not going to contradict myself with. Sarah J Maas has written a YA fantasy classic for the ages, written in a way that people from all walks of life can read and enjoy it. Four stars for a fantastic beginning to an already legendary series; only the slow opening half stops me from awarding it full marks. Now on to book two!!!

My favourite book of all time
Immediately I fell in love with this book, the series and the characters. I came across them long just after this one was released and the best thing is as I've grown up they are still just as gripping, exciting and interesting as when I first picked up Throne of Glass. Could not recommend anything by Sarah more!

One of the best series out there. I thoroughly enjoyed it and could not put the book down! The characters and plots held my attention to the very end. I would definitely recommend this book to any fantasy or adventure lovers. Thank you and well done to Sarah J. Maas for writing this book for us all to enjoy! Happy reading!
