Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! I am so happy to have read this book after so long, because this book was out of this world amazing!! This incredible fantasy was one that will leave you craving more after finishing it. Sarah J. Maas has created a masterpiece. Throne of Glass was unputdownable from the very first page. I loved the world Maas created because it is unique and creative. This book has become one of my favorites and its perfect for Game of Throne fans! Its also told from 3 point of views of Celaena, Chaol (love him) and Dorian. Celaena is one kick-ass assassin that has survived slavery for a year. She is strong-willed and super clever. She may be a killer but she is easy to connect with as a character. Celaena back story is also a mystery and despite all the hardships she goes through she is the best assassin there is in this world. If I had to choose a kick-ass character Celaena is definitely one because her love life is all over the place. I fell in love with both of these male leads and reading some of their point of views was the best thing ever! I could feel what they felt since it was emotional during some parts and gah!! I can just gush about these two forever!! There is a love triangle but its one of the best I have read because you can fall in love with either of them. Its not overbearing on the story line. Chaol Westfall (Captain Westfall) is one hot guard who has an interesting background coming from a different kingdom, while Dorian is the prince who brought Celaena to the kingdom for a position of being the King's assassin. But there is some dark things happening in the glass castle, of ancient evil. The competition was less than moral and has a bit of gore but it is to become the King's champion. There was tons of action and Celaena is the perfect heroine. So much mystery behind this castle as well as trying to uncover the past. You will be hooked and having read this quickly I did lose track of time since it was so amazing. I am looking forward to the sequel!! (I already read it) Overall this is a must read and I am looking forward to the novellas to still read! Throne of Glass was beyond addicting and full of action! Pick up this book immediately!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Became one of my favourite reads of 2012 Celaena is one heroine to look out for! Watch out Katniss Everdeen! Here’s a young woman who has trained under the King of the Assassins, who strikes fear in people’s hearts, the most notorious assassin that Adarlan has ever seen. By receiving a pardon from her murderous crimes, the controlling King has asked her to participate in a competition to win her freedom. The Captain of the Guard keeps her in line, while the young handsome Prince Dorian teases her mercilessly, Celaena isn’t just battling for her freedom, she’s battling for her life. When all of a sudden, her competitors are showing up dead in such a gruesome and horrible way, she investigates to find the killer. She isn’t your average heroine, already led a very sinister life. Yet, she has the strength and fire to bring a tyrant down. Her many thoughts of taking a man down and ending his life is quite appalling, but I can just tell she has some anger issues that needs to be simmered down. Her playful banter with Prince Dorian is amusing and her arguments with The Captain are aggressive in a way that’s almost protective. Can I say I love how she eats so much? Her appetite rivals any man! I’m guessing she wolfs down so much food due to her excessive exercise regimen. By the way did I mention she’s also an assassin? Yup, the eighteen year old young lady is the world’s most notorious assassin. Speaking of “assassin” this was the only smudge of annoyance in the entire book..the amount of the words, “the assassin.” I would have loved it even so, but I just got annoyed every time it appeared. We know she’s an assassin, we don’t have to be reminded every ten or so pages. Sometimes a book has an amount of buzz that makes people sit up and take notice. That one book that lived up to all its hype has to be Throne of Glass! Why you may ask? Because quite simply put, it’s epic. Here is a book that brings you mystery, adventure, romance, and action all wound up in a pretty package. One of my ultimate favourite reads of 2012 by far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from While this book is not my favourite... … it was still really good and I think when I read the second, I might very well retract those words While some of the writing was a little predictable, that didn't stop me from powering through it. I love books with strong, heroines. I especially love female assassins. And love triangles. This book was a great read, especially because I didn't read very consistently in the latter half of 2013 and I really wanted to get some reading done this year. The plot was great. I loved most of the characters. It was kind of a long book (404 pages) but it was a fast and enjoyable read. I'm looking forward to buying the sequel. One more thing: I fell in love with the Captain of the Guard. I found his character to be very unique, and not like anyone I've read before. He's the Captain (obviously) but if we weren't told of his profession and we didn't see him training, he could easily be assumed as a kitchen boy or page. I guess I can say that he's very unassuming. He's shy around Celaena. He gets flustered so easily when he notices her short nightgowns, or he blushes when she mockingly flirts with him. But he had so much faith. More than I would expect. Overall, I think Chaol alone is able to bump this book from a 3.5 to a 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GIVE ME MORE! This is one of the best books I have ever read. I just couldn't put it down! I read A LOT! and am very picky about I deem a worthy book and author. Maas manages to give you just enough about each character to keep you guessing the whole way through. Many authors reveal too much and then have to rely solely on their action sequences to keep the reader entertained. I fell in love with Celaena right away and am looking forward to learning more about her. Maas gave the protagonists enough of a back story to show their vulnerable side, and enough hardship to show their strengths. I love it when the hero is someone with somewhat questionable morals and you are forced to see how they ended up there to appreciate the position they have been put! I start the second book today and can't wait!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing but still entertaining I decided to read this book because of the recent hype surrounding Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) and other reviews for Throne of Glass. The library had a copy, so I picked it up, extremely excited for a leading lady as a kickass assassin. Unfortunately, this book didn’t break the stereotypical YA mold for me for three reasons: 1) It contained an unecessary love triangle, 2) It advertised lots of action, but those few scenes were severely lacking in depth and description, and 3) Our leading lady, who starts out as a ruthless, cunning, and beautiful warrior is reduced to an often blundering, not very observant, and dress-obsessed girl, like so many before her. I don’t want to make it seem like I hate this book! I actually enjoyed reading it, but I had quite a few problems with it as well, some of them probably stemming from some unrealistic expectations on my part (I’ve grown accustomed to expecting lots of action scenes when the book synopsis screams lots of action scenes), but others resulting in my sheer frustration with our main character, who seemed a little bipolar and at times totally clueless. What I did really like was the worldbuilding and Celaena’s flashbacks scenes. I loved slowly getting information about Adarlan and its conquest of the other nations around it. The subtle hints to magic and magical creatures was fascinating, and I loved how it tied in with Celaena’s background. Her upbringing as an assassin when alluded to was really interesting and lent a lot of needed depth to her character, especially during the second half of the book. Her experiences in the salt mines of Endovier clearly hardened her, and I enjoyed her cynical and sarcastic personality during the first part of the book. However, her character goes downhill for me after she rejoins court life in order to compete to become the king’s champion (hired assassin). She devotes her social life to annoying the captain of the guard, Chaol, gossiping with a neighbouring land’s princess, and reading books that the prince recommends to her (in addition to commenting on his good looks). She also obtusely ignores a very very clear “I’m the ritual killer!” hint in favour of suspecting someone who is only slightly suspicious. I literally sat there for five minutes, thinking to myself, What just happened? Why is she even suspecting this person when it is clearly the other? Similarly, the whole reason behind the killings seemed so unncessarily convoluted that I was let down by the ending. All-in-all I was very disappointed with Celaena’s approach and thoughts about the mystery surrounding the killer. She was supposed to be this cunning assassin, but she just acted like a court lady the whole time. I also wished that the author had spent as much time devoted to developing her action scenes as she was describing the dresses Celaena wore. I wanted assassin action; she was a in a contest among other mercenaries, thiefs, and assassins, so I wanted more of that as well. There were probably two scenes devoted to actual contest action, and then one at the finale. Very disappointing for an action lover. Finally, that love triangle. I liked the part where it ended. Overall, this book is pretty entertaining, has an interesting main character (for the first half at least), and great worldbuilding. I’ll be reading the next book because I’m intrigued about Celaena’s background (before she became an assassin) and the magic of Terrasen, but I’m not looking forward to any remnant of that love triangle or under-developed action scenes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOOOOO GOOOOD!!! I LOVED this book. Best I've read in a while. It was way better than the hunger games, all of cassandra claire's books, and even divergent; all of those popular books with female protagonists (In my opinion). I can't wait until midnight crown comes out. SOOO EXCITED!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best! This book surprised me. It was wonderful, gives positive feelings towards women being strong, and the romance and action is wonderful, this has gone in my top 5. Highly recommended. as the cover says, feels like Game of Thrones and Hunger Games mixed into one epic book! 5/5

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kick Butt Book Loving Heroine, what's not to like The Good Stuff Intriguing, well developed kick a** heroine. An assassin with a bit of a softness to her, you gotta like that (Reminds me a wee bit of Gin from Jennifer Estep's Elemental Assassins series) Fast paced, had a hard time putting it down when real life needed me -- but I did cause that is the way I roll -- but it was really tempting just to keep reading Lots of little hints about Celaena's back story kept me intrigued and guessing Even though there are hints of a love triangle its not all irritating or overly angsty (Though I am definitely cheering for Chaol) Love that she is an avid reader - a kick a** book loving heroine -- that is so awesome! And a book burning evil king to hate - hello you hooked me in Ms Maas Great mystery weaved with Magic - gives the storyline an original edge in what could have been a predictable story Excellent uses of humour - love some of the snark and swagger that came out of the characters The Not So Good Stuff Jumps around a little and uneven at times Cover doesn't do Celaena justice - have seen another cover which gives me a much more realistic image of her Favorite Quotes/Passages "Oh, how wrong he was! Libraries were full of ideas – perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons." "Though it was the oldest and most shameless trick in the book, he reached over her and put his hand on top of the one that gripped the cue. He then positioned the fingers of her other hand on the wood before lightly gripping her wrist. To Dorian's dismay, his face became warm." His eyes shifted to her, and to his relief, he found that she was as red as he, if not more so. "If you don't stop feeling and start instructing, I'm going to rip out your eyes and replace them with these billiard balls." "There was good in people - deep down, there was always a shred of good. There had to be." Who Should/Shouldn't Read Both teens and adults will get something out of it Definitely will appeal more to women than men 4/5 Dewey's I received this from Razorbill/Penguin in exchange for an honest review

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Female Assassin = Awesome! Can't wait for the sequels Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas was originally published in August 2012 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens. Celaena Sardothien has spent the last year serving out her part of her life sentence in the hard labor salt mines of Endovier, but everything changes when one day the Captain of the Royal Guard, Chaol shows up and brings her to speak to the Crown Prince Dorian Havilliard. The Prince has chosen her to be his challenger in a new competition being put on by the King. There will be 24 competitors who will compete in physical challenges. The final person standing will become the royal assassin. They will serve out a six year term and then given their freedom. Soon she finds herself in the royal kingdom Adarlan training to battle against thieves and other assassins for her freedom. The Prince keeps her true identity under wraps because people of the kingdom aren’t aware that the famous assassin was a young girl. He wants the men in the competition to underestimate her so they plan on doing just enough to get to the end. She is bored with court life, but finds excitement in the books of the library, a friendship with a princess and attention from both Chaol and Dorian. When suddenly contestants start turning up murdered she needs to find out who or what is killing them and avoid following in their footsteps. The young assassin’s investigation allows her to discover a greater destiny than what she could ever have imagined. This book had me at two words: Female assassin. As soon as I heard that was what it was about I was sold, and I knew I had to read it. I was even more excited to read it after reading the summary. A kickass young assassin going up against these strong men to win her freedom sounded very reminiscent of the hunger games. Well I enjoyed the book but it’s not exactly what I thought it was going to be. There are glass castles, masquerade balls, thieves, assassins, dashing princes, amazing gowns, princesses, corrupt officials and some supernatural thrown in. The plot was definitely unpredictable to the very end which should make for an exciting sequel. Maas does an excellent job describing Adarlan and the characters. This great imagery meant I could picture things happening very easily, but I do wish that there was more focus on the challenges for the competition. I could have done with a sacrificing little of the description of the setting for more action. As all first books in a series it’s setting us up for the future, so I expect better things in the sequel. Celaena is an interesting character, and people seem to either love or hate her. I think she is great; albeit a little vain. She is very sure of her abilities and I applaud her confidence, but borders cockiness which can be annoying. Celaena may be the most feared assassin in the land, but at the same time she gets excited about gowns and books. She may have a bad job but she’s not a bad person she has lots of layers and I can’t wait to see what will happen with Celaena in the next books. I also want to learn more about her past like who is Sam? I also want to know more about her parents and the mentor who trained her to be an assassin. I liked both of the main guys: The Prince is charming, flirty and a nice guy. He seems like he would be a fair king unlike his father. No matter how great Dorian is I was more drawn to Chaol. He has a hard and cold exterior but seems to have a very big heart. He truly seemed to care about Celaena and Dorian. I want to know why he would leave a position of privilege to become a guard. The book was originally called Queen of Glass and started out online with a very large following before Maas was given a book deal. I Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)wasn’t aware that the story was loosely based on Disney’s Cinderella until after I had read the book and did some research. Sarah J. Maas has cited the Disney movie adaptation of Cinderella as an in inspiration. She felt that the music during the scene where Cinderella flees the Castle at midnight to be too dark and intense for the scene. She thought about it and felt it was more fitting if it was an assassin fleeing the castle. I love how this turned into Celaena’s story. Let’s take a second to talk about the covers of the books. The North American hardcover edition is gorgeous. We see a Celaena wearing her daggers on her arms, and the glass castle is behind her. Beautiful but deadly which is exactly what describes our main character. I also really like the UK cover. We see this kickass girl with long flowy hair holding deadly swords in each hand. The film rights have already been acquired by Creative Artists Agency. I do hope that a movie will get made in the future, and I will be checking out the sequel when it is released. As of right now there is no information about the rest of the series. Check out my Blog for more reviews: http://bibliophilesisters.wordpress.com/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the main character! Celaena is an 18-year-old assassin serving out her sentence in the mines, hard labor with no end in sight except for death when Prince Dorian tracks her down and offers her a deal. Become his champion in his father's competition, win the competition and become the King's champion and eventually earn her freedom. It's not something Celaena can pass up. But when she gets to the castle and some of the other champions fall victim to a murderer, she knows she needs to find who's responsible before she becomes the next victim. This book was amazing. Reading some of the other reviews, this was posted to fictionpress a few years ago. It's not a site I've ever been on but if there's more stories like this, I might have to check it out. Celaena impressed me so much as a character. She was strong, well-aware of her surroundings and herself, and smart. I loved that she loved to read and that she knew that she was pretty. This is a girl with a lot of confidence and it's easy to see why both Dorian and Chaol were so drawn to her. The two boys, Prince Dorian and Captain Chaol. Wow. I loved their relationship. It was easy to tell how close they were even with their different status and it was cute how they'd worry about each other. Chaol works too hard and Dorian trusts too easily. It'll be interesting to see how falling for the same girl affects that relationship. The story moves along at the perfect pace. There's never really a scene where there's nothing happening but there's never too much information thrown out either. The minor characters, Princess Nehemia, Celaena's other competitors, the court, the maids, they all had roles to play to add to the story. No one was just there, even if they were only around for less than a chapter. It added so much to the story. I can't wait for the next in the series to be released.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review of "Throne of Glass" Fan of this series? Visit the book's fanblog at bythewyrd.tumblr.com! Recommended by Sarah J. Maas and Bloomsbury on Twitter and Facebook! Review originally posted in: litupmyworld.wordpress.com Sarah J. Maas Overall rating: 5/5 stars! Setting/Plot: 4.5/5 Characters: Celaena Sardothien – 4.2/5 Chaol Westfall – 5/5 Dorian Havilliard – 4.0/5 Nehemia Ytger – 5/5 Other characters, all-together 4.7/5 Plot: The story begins and the readers are immediately thrown into the fantasy world that Sarah J. Maas has beautifully created. The world of “Throne of Glass” is vastly inspired by fairytales and Cinderella, however, this version of Cinderella kicks-ass. There were turn of events which I would have never predicted and caught me by surprise most of the time. Which is a great factor why I rated this story a 5/5! Characters: Celaena Sardothien is your typical bad-ass assassin. I rated Celaena’s character a 4.2/5 because I found sometimes that her character personality sometimes sways from being tough, she becomes this all romance girl, which should an assassin even worry? Also, I often found it refreshing to see an assassin be “vain”—another new aspect that Maas has incorportated in the novel. Chaol Westfall, Captain of the Royal Guard. Oh my, my. This is a man, I tell you. His character from the very beginning rang “Captain” as he stood loyal to his job and the title and how the title weighs as a young man and already a captain. I don’t know about you guys but this fairytale of Throne of Glass is something new for me because I found myself giggling and being all giddy more to Chaol, rather than the typical choice, the Crown Prince—Dorian Havilliard. In no doubt is Dorian Havilliard swoon worthy, however, his character sways too much. I wish to describe this thought better… hm, perhaps, Dorian Havilliard is just like other princes, who refuse the protocol and follow his hearts desire. However, to be completely honest, the wavering part of Celaena’s heart on choosing between the two is completely understandable because even I, the reader, found myself confused as to who I want to be with! Ridiculous but that’s a major factor for authors to achieve with their readers. To have their readers feel the protagonists’ feelings inside and out and to take the roller coaster ride of emotions with them. After reading “Throne of Glass”, I guess for now I could claim that I am deeply in love with Chaol Westfall. He actually made me cry a few times (don’t want to spoil too much!) In General: Throne of Glass is one of my most favorite read of the year. The beautiful plotting, amazing characters, breath-taking setting (glass castle!), and just everything about it is so beautiful! I also love the love-triangle thing because it’s evidently a love triangle but it’s not over-doing it and even so, it’s still so difficult to choose between the two! Throne of Glass is recommended to all those fairytale lovers but you’re searching for a twist and a kick-ass read with a fantastic fantasy world. If you find it difficult to craft the world in your head, be sure to check out Sarah J. Maas’ Pinterest board for Throne of Glass! It really will set the world for you and set your imaginations free!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A new favourite This was one of those books that everyone was talking about at Book Expo America this year and I knew I had to get myself a copy. If only to see what all the fuss was about. And I'm so glad I did, because not only did I love this novel, it has become one of my favourite reads of 2012 so far. A sure fire way to get me to fall in love with your novel is to have a complicated but kick ass heroine. Celaena fits this bill in every way. She can take care of herself – not only is she the most famous assassin the land, but she also survived Endovier - one of the most ruthless work camps/prisons, which no one ever returns from. But this strength and “talent” do not make her a cold person. She obviously cares about other people, and she struggles with demons of her own. I liked that she wasn't a cut and dry character and I really enjoyed getting to know her. Plus she likes to read! Hooray for bookish heroines that can kick some butt! But an amazing heroine isn't the only thing that won me over to the Throne of Glass fan club. I was also entranced by Sarah J Maas' descriptive writing. Everything she wrote about felt so vivid. She's obviously a skilled writer and makes use of all five senses when depicting a scene to her reader. I often found myself re-reading passages over and over because I was blown away by beauty of the phrasing. If I can write a fantasy novel half this well, I will consider myself a success. Another equally important element of this novel, however, was that Sarah J Maas knew when to stop writing. She knew when enough detail or background was enough. I wasn't overwhelmed by excess characters or annoying subplots. Everything that was in the book should be in the book, with no filler to distract the reader. That being said, I would have really liked to see more of the trials Celaena was put through and to have her interact a bit more with her fellow competitors. I felt like she wasn't given enough time to showcase her skills and abilities. She is an assassin after all. But here's hoping there will be more of that in Book 2, when she isn't so limited by guards and competing for her life. Throne of Glass is an example of everything I love about fantasy novels. Great characters, beautiful settings, intricate plot lines, mysterious magical forces. I wish there were more books like this. Final recommendation: Throne of Glass is a perfect read for fans of Kristin Cashore and Tamora Pierce. Or just anyone who loves strong female characters. P.s. I'm also head over heels for the Captain of the Guard and his understated, tortured kind of love. *swoon* This and other reviews at Hooked on Books (http://christashookedonbooks.blogspot.com)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic Fantasy! One Not to Miss This is a book I just wanted to sit inside and soak in. It has all the things I look for in a great read; amazing world building, strong character development, swoon worthy love interests and a kick-ass protagonist. Sarah Maas is a talented story teller, the book came alive for me and I did not want this story to end. Celaena is a complex and driven character. A perfect combination of strength and love, though she’s been taught to be a ruthless assassin, she has a softer side and doesn’t loose the girl within. (also a bookworm..-loved that) While reading I kept saying to my husband… why can’t I be more like her? He of course asked why I would want to be a ruthless assassin :) It’s not that I want to become an assassin, (maybe if my library gig doesn’t work out) but I would like to be stronger, (and maybe even a little kick-ass). Celaena knows herself, she accepts her fears and moves to face them. She recognizes fears and strengths in others as well. She’s uses the pain of her past to propel and motivate her to move forward. She has quickly become one of my favourite book characters (ever) and I can not wait to read more of her story. I can not wait to place this book in the hands of every teen and adult I know. Highly Recommended. One to buy so you can re-read over and over again. For more reviews: www.lostinthelibrary.com

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Phenomenal Fantasy Debut! Throne of Glass is a magnificent debut novel that will certainly become one of the best fantasy releases of the year! Yes, Sarah J. Mass is THAT good! The captivating storytelling and the gorgeous fantasy world she created will engross readers in a unique, wondrous and unforgettable fantasy adventure! For a year, Celaena's been a slave at the horrible and torturous Endovier prison. One day, the captain of the king's guard and the crowned Prince himself, takes her out of there to make her compete against 22 strong and badass men. But what would she gain from that?... Her freedom! but first (and if she wins) she'll have to become the King's champion and serve him for four years. At a very early point of the book the story takes off and then it never stopped surprising me. It is incredible how engaging my reading experience was while reading Throne of Glass. The plot of this wondrous fantasy novel is absolutely exhilarating. The world and atmosphere is brilliantly well built, and the characters are extremely charismatic. Celaena is one heroine like no other! Besides being kick-ass, smart, and really pretty, her flirting and mischievous personality totally makes her stand out of the pages! She just rocks in every single way. I love her! Then, there is Chaol. He is the captain of the guard and Prince Dorian's best friend. Truth be told, I could say so much about this honorable and noble guy and how wonderful and deliciously crafted this character is, but I doubt very much I can do this guy justice. Believe me, Chaol is one of the best and most captivating, breathtaking, intelligent, intriguing and stunning male characters I have read in a while! And Oh my God! Besides the captain of the guard, there is also Prince Dorian whose charms will melt every reader from the very first moment he shows up. Of course, with these two stunning males there is also a love triangle. However, this love triangle is bound by loyalty and good sentiments among the three characters. In other words, nobody is fighting over someone. Loyalty isn't breached by love and I really adore this powerful aspect of the story. I think this love triangle is very unique compared to the many others we can find in YA today. Having said that, Throne of Glass is a fabulous and exquisite fantasy that will steal every reader's heart! Finally, I don't think I need to mention anything about the competition to become the king's champions, nor anything about the many heart-racing or breathtaking events that occurs while Celaena is at the Glass Castle. I think that readers must pick-up this book as soon as it comes out, and discover by themselves all the wonders that this exceptionally well-written fantasy has to offer! Throne of Glass is definitely one of the best books I have read this year. The plot, the world, the characters, the mythology and the religious aspects are just some of the things that make this book so deliciously rich. The historical and cultural background will fascinate readers and hook them from the very first page until the last. And the charming and authentic characters will certainly imprint their mark in every reader's heart. Throne of Glass is a phenomenal debut novel and, of course, a must-read that nobody should miss.
