“Hold on, the riders told the world. Hold on.” 


I’ll admit that I didn’t want to read Throne of Glass, no matter how praised it was, simply because the cover looked kind of Asian, Manga-esque to me, and that’s REALLY not my thing. But once I gave in enough to actually hold the book in my hand, I was immediately stuck.

Celaena is Adarlan’s greatest assassin, but a betrayal lands her in a prison with such harsh conditions that no one is expected to live past a month. But after a year, she’s still standing, and the Crown Prince of Adarlan wants her to compete to be the King’s Champion.

If she wins, she serves the king for her contracted time, then she’s free.

But the first Queen of Adarlan, the long deceased ghost that visits her, has other plans for Celaena. Plans that bring out who Celaena’s true past, and threaten the banned-magic world the King of Adarlan has created.

I think many would agree with me in saying that if you love fantasy, YA, Fae, and magic, there isn’t a single reason you won’t fall head over heels in love with this series. Sarah J. Mass’s world is so descriptive and inviting, you feel like you’ve walked the streets Celaena knows so well.

Every adventure is breath taking, Celaena is a constant mystery that doesn’t seem to have an end, and the men are charming and chivalrous in their own unique ways. When Maas wants you to hate a character, you do, when she wants you to fall in love, it’s inevitable.

It’s fantasy at it’s finest, and I can’t wait for book 4, Queen of Shadows, to be released in September!
