Throne of Glass


By Mariah Killian


Sarah J. Maas author of Throne of Glass is an excellent writer. With well-rounded character development and attention pulling details, Maas has captured the beauty of a well-written fantasy adventure book. Throne of Glass is the first book in her series. The book follows a young assassin Celaena Sardothien. She is eighteen years old and regaining her right to freedom. Trading one type of slavery for another, Celaena leaves the slave camp Endovier to become the king of Adarlan’s champion.

However, Celaena must face a competition between herself and many other opponents. Dealing with not only a chance to win her freedom back, Celaena must also defeat a lurking evil within the castle, a quest set upon her by the first queen of Adarlan. Throughout Throne of Glass, Celaena makes friends that no normal assassin would have. She befriends princess Nehemia of Ewllye, Prince Dorian of Adarlan, and Chaol Westfall  captain of the guard.

Looking for an unknown evil and finding the good within herself, Celaena finds herself stuck in a rut. With so much all going on at once, she is forced to fulfill her quest to the first queen of Adarlan and become the king’s champion.

Celaena Sardothien overall is a well-rounded character, and I am excited to watch her growth throughout the rest of Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series. She is a strong-willed character who has much potential. This is a book I would highly recommend to anyone willing to read.
