 Overview (No Spoilers): Apparently, I’m still stuck in a young adult novel phase. I had though I’d found Throne of Glass on a book to movie adaption list, however, after completing the book I can’t find any such rumors thus I am unable to recall how I came across this entertaining novel. While, Throne of Glass is a quick read, Maas does an excellent job detailing a fairly complex novel world while managing to maintain a high level of detail. The story follows a world-renowned assassin who, upon spending a year in a work prison camp is recalled to the castle by the Price to compete to be the King’s Champion. However, the stakes in the competition heighten as her competitors begin to be horrendously murdered one after another. Maas was outstanding at developing intrigue between main characters, whether it was Cain’s threatening, bizarre, overwhelming presence, or the playful, reserved tension, always on the verge of spilling over between Celaena and Captain Westfall. Overall, I found Throne of Glass to be an enjoyable read, which piqued my curiosity for the next book in the series, which I’m sure you’ll find a review of shortly.

  1. When I read this book a few months back, I found the story interesting and the main character fairly deep, but thought that some of the supporting characters were a bit flat. I wouldn’t say it wowed me, but I enjoyed it enough that I’ll probably read the second book at some point in the future. I’ve got plenty of books to read through before then though.

    • The first book isn’t all that great. What is amazing about this series is how much the story line and characters grow and mature with each book. I promise it is worth it to keep going. I believe my review here was only lackluster for the first book.
