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.

SARAH J. MAAS is the New York Times bestselling author of Crown of Midnight, the sequel to Throne of Glass. Sarah, a New York native, currently lives in the California desert. She has a large on-line fanbase who eagerly support her writing. Visit her online at www.sarahjmaas.comFacebook: @SJMaas

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enticing Celaena Sardothien is an unforgettable character that is so dynamic, that readers can relate to her on such deep levels. She has the strength of a boar and the courage of the lion. Her beauty is truly within and out, and Sarah J. Mass has done an excellent job displaying this. Love triangles, fights to the death, a powerful female lead, are just a few components to this spectacular novel. Intrigued? You should be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely Enthralling! I had Throne of Glass on my bookshelf for a while but was so intimidated by the size at the time. Although, once you get past the first few chapters it captivates your mind completely. If you're a fan of action, fantasy and a little bit or quite a lot of romance then this book is definitely for you. As you move onto the other books, the story only gets better, trust me. However, take in mind there are some major plot twists and cliff hangers!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite series (of all time) Sarah J. Maas is a phenomenal writer, the Throne of Glass series is a must read for... well anyone. Fast paced action, bad ass heroines and heroes, romance, tons of world building and a writing style that will suck you into the world of Erilea. The whole series is a must read of course. The first book is about teenage assassin Celaena Sardothien who has to compete for her freedom in a competition to become the kings champion (hitman/woman). And you really need to read the whole series because the world building is INSANE (So good!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing start to an amazing series !!! I have been trying to get back into reading for a while now and I was watching some review on fantasy and this series was one of them. So I went to the nearest book shop and read the first chapter.... I was hooked. I did not buy it for the fact that I wanted to read it on my kobo. For my first book in a long time, I had a very hard time putting down !! There is a tone of action and suspense. It is easy to fall in love with the main characters. Very very well done, I absolutely highly recommend this book !! #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Heroine Fantasy! This book was fantastic, although it seems to be just another run of the mill fantasy novel, it's a fantasy Tolkien would be proud of. Filled with action, courage, a little romance and paired with a strong female assassin, you can't go wrong with this intriguing book
Date published: 2017-11-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read! An amazing book with a kick-ass character who is an assassin! The writing couldn't be any better and the story was absolutely incredible. Celaena's history was explained very clearly and her pain from it was really touching. I loved the romance between her and the other characters as well as her curious side of her personality. I loved how Celaena loves chocolate like a little kid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic fantasy novel I absolutely loved it! The first few chapters I was feeling a little iffy because it seemed too similar to the fantasy novels I've read before, but then it gets REALLY interesting and from there things just go down and it's an awesome read. make sure you're willing to buy all those SJM books though. In my opinion, they are totally worth the rereads, but since i am a little bit on the cheaper side im collecting the paperbacks. (hardcovers are way too expense for collections!!!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing start to a series! This book pulls you in. It is so interesting, i couldn't put it down! I've only read the book once so far, but I definitely plan on reading it again soon! Sarah J. Mass is an amazing author and I recommend any of her books

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Second Go Around I had previously started this series but fell off the wagon after the first book (so many books so little time), but after hearing so many great comments I reread the first and am on my way to pick up the second. The plot kept me engaged and I have become invested in Celaena as a character.
Date published: 2017-10-10
Rated 2 out of 5 by from No I find my main gripe with this series is that I constantly compare it to her A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy, perhaps it is because this book was written so long ago but it just did not do it for me as a reader. I could not back the main character and did not enjoy the way she flip-flopped from strong woman to asshole for no reason besides just "that's how she is" without any person calling her out on it. She was the assassiniest assassin that ever assassined but she didn't DO a good job at it or do ANYTHING really. I may give this series another chance when I'm not so unimpressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it NOW This book is insanely amazing! If you have read Maas' other series before this then you will definitely love this. I would love for her to combine both stories though! I think combining the two series would be epic but anyways they are amazing regardless and I love how there are so many books so you can keep on reading so excited to read the next ones! Fairies are exactly what I'm looking for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This series is everything This series is just outstanding. Already they are 5 books in and the series has just gotten better as it's gone along. Sometimes the problem with long series (more than 3 books) is that the story get stagnant/ unimaginative the longer it goes on. With this series that is simply not the case, I feel like every book just ups the ante from the last one. I'm eager to see how the series all comes to an end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Re-Read by Audiobook The only issue I had was trouble adjusting to Celaena's voice because I know it as the voice of Nina in Six of Crows. Other than that, it was great getting into the world again. It's been so long, I had forgotten a lot of the minor details. For instance, how many names Celaena goes through! Already started Crown of Midnight.
Date published: 2017-08-08
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Enjoyable I'd give this more a 3.5 stars. I enjoyed it, though at times I rolled my eyes. The slight love triangle didn't really work for me because Celaena's interest in the prince seemed to pop up rather suddenly (she all of a sudden started feeling smitten around him but there were no moments that really told me why, it's like he gave her books and that was that). I believed her connection to Chaol more than her connection to Dorian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OH MY GOD Where do I even begin? Bad*ss female lead? Check. Lovable and well developed characters? Check. Interesting and constantly evolving plot? Check. I love this series to death. Both my lockscreen and homescreen are ToG related. I have re-read the ending to EoS more times than I should, as each time it makes me sob. (ToD please come out already) GOd I LOVE THIS SERIES. This is more of a fangirl post than a review, I've realized. Oops. This book will get you hooked, guaranteed. Give it a try, especially if you love fantasy and bas*ssery. Read this, you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than I Expected True, my favorite author wrote the blurb for this book, but after having read and been less than impressed by another of SJM's novels, I really wasn't expecting much from this one. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I thoroughly enjoyed myself with this on. Celaena is a kick-butt woman whose level of sass knows no boundaries. While the men in this book came off a bit shallow and love-struck - one might even go so far as to say sex-crazed - Celaena was bold, firm and unwavering, and to see her character develop through the novel was truly amazing. Recommended for fans of high fantasy novels, girl power, and kick-butt heroines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My FAV series...ever So this is a long overdue review on ToG. This book is the beginning of a story that will literally take you everywhere, it is full of plot twists and you never really know what is going to happen. Yes, there is a love triangle in this book, but for those of you that are so against those, READ the series. You will not regret your decision.

My friend recommended this book back in middle school, and I'm so glad she did because Maas' books starting with this one have been both our favourite books. I could sit down and read it from start to end in one sitting if I just had the time. I never put it down, I highlight and mark important parts, and I try and recommend this book to everyone I meet! It may not be for some, but overall, it's hard to go wrong with this book. So full of empowering and heart-breaking moments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great YA Read This is a creative and appealing world, created by Sarah J. Maas. Despite some rather obvious gaps in the plot, the main character is compelling and this book is an easy, enjoyable read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE MOST AMAZING BOOK EVER There are no words to describe how much i love this author and series. I bought it after i read A court of Thorns and Roses and enjoyed that one a lot so i decided to give this one a try since some of my other friends read it as well. I was blown away. It is my favourite series ever, along with A court of Thorns and Roses, Sarah J Maas is the best author and writer ever. If you are thinking of reading it, do! You will not be disappointed i promise you. I love this series to death and cannot wait until the next book in the series comes out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG! LOVE THIS BOOK, AND LOVE THIS SERIES!!!! I went into this not expecting much. Just some great action and cheering for the assassin to win. Then this book threw me into a roller coaster of emotions, and a roller coaster of a plot starting with this book right here. I'm so glad I picked up this book. You will love how strong Celaena is, how bad ass, and how infuriating she can also be. The ending was so good, took me so off guard, and was so what I wanted that it left me scrambling to read the next book, then the next book, then the next book, and so on. Read this book if you enjoy fantasy tales, magic, action, a strong female, and don't mind blood, gore, and some even more gruesome themes. I'd recommend this to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic fantasy with strong female lead! I picked this up and could not put it down! The wait between books in this series is agony! Sarah J Maas is a master - the plot is intricate and unexpected, the characters are complex and resonate well with readers, the writing is beautiful. I can't say enough good things about this book, this series, and this author. It's like Game of Thrones, but younger, feminist, and with fewer characters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! A friend of mine had been trying to get me to read this series for months and I had been hesitant to buy it because I didn't think that I would enjoy it. I had finally bought it after months of my friend trying to convince me and while I was reading it I had realized that I had been very, very wrong about that. It took me less than a day before I was rushing to the store to get the second book. It was such an amazing read, I 100% recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun read but could have used better editing I enjoyed this book though i found out later that the author was fairly young when she wrote it and i feel like it shows. I think parts of the book could have been cut down and the relationship aspect could have been written better. Overall though , I enjoyed it enough to read the second book #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing writing! I bought this about 6 months ago and I loved the suspense and mystery that it had. The characters were written beautifully. I loved how Sarah J. Mass wrote the main character especially the assasin side of her/more gruesome side. This is a must read for preteens, teens and young adults.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Best book ever!! Overall, this book was one of the best reads that I've ever had. It's one of those books that you start and then can't put down. I loved that the lead character is female, and Celaena has to be the strongest and most badass female character ever. There is a such a perfect balance between genres, that I don't even know what to call it. Sarah J. Maas is an amazing writer, combining fantasy and thriller with a bit of action to create the most epic story ever. She wrote the story so well that you never know what will happen next. After reading this book, books that I loved before paled drastically in comparison to the rollercoaster of a ride that is Throne of Glass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it This book is the perfect balance of everything. Aelin is sassy, is completely full of herself, but can also kill a person twice her size with a fingernail. She is awesome, an amazing leading protagonist that does not need a man to save her. She has faced many hardships and has to face many more later on and each of her journeys draws in readers more and more.
Date published: 2017-04-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Promising Start This is a promising start to a new series. Celaena is quite stubborn, juvenile and even cocky but it's nice to see her becoming a little more humble as she gets put through each trial and how the friendship around her changes her. There seems more to the story than just a simple trial and I can see the start of a rather epic fantasy story taking shape.
Date published: 2017-04-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the lead character I just love how the female lead Cealena is a literal badass, I mean you can't get better than her. You also see lots of character developpement. This one of those characters where the weakness is obvious and I like it when they don't make the character perfect. This book also has a love triangle which normally I hate but once I got to know the two other characters, I just couldn't decide, I loved them both so much. Two cons would that the pronouciations were hard but never fear there was a pronounciation guide at the end of the book. Second con: the story was kind of predictable. But other then that it was great!

Editorial Reviews

"Readers seeking the political intrigue of Kristen Cashore's Graceling and its sequels or the deadly competition at the heart of The Hunger Games will find both in Maas's strong debut novel. . . . The verve and freshness of the narration make for a thrilling read." -Publishers Weekly, starred review"A teenage assassin, a rebel princess, menacing gargoyles, supernatural portals and a glass castle prove to be as thrilling as they sound. . . . Celaena is still just a teenager trying to forge her way, giving the story timelessness. This commingling of comedy, brutality and fantasy evokes a rich alternate universe with a spitfire young woman as its brightest star." -Kirkus Reviews"Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas is a tale full of surprises and shadows, where deadly seeds are sown with the promise of more danger to come. A fascinating glimpse into the dark side of Cinderella." -Colleen Houck, the NYT Bestselling author of the Tiger's Curse series
