A hugely commercial, fabulously addictive fantastical romp-from an author with top-notch digital self-publishing pedigree and legions of fans

Action-packed fantasy romance with a heroine as deadly as she is beautiful, in a world where either fact could make her fortune or seal her fate. Celaena Sardothien is a daredevil assassin with unrivalled fighting skills.

After a year's hard labour in the salt mines of the kingdom of Endovier, Celaena is offered her freedom on one condition - she must fight as handsome Prince Dorian's champion in a contest sponsored by the king, facing the deadliest thieves and assassins in the land. But there is more at stake than even her life-for Celaena is destined for a remarkable future

    Comments about Throne of Glass:

    A strong start to the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas, Throne of Glass follows Celeana who is taken from hard labour to serve as the king's assassin, with the promise of her freedom.

    An interesting story and a very concise world build.

          Great read with lots of twists and turns. Funny and sarcastic characters with a witting, strong and brave heroine. Definitely worth multiple reads.

            Comments about Throne of Glass:

            Enjoyed it, though I could have enjoyed it a lot more.

            Follow Celaena Sardothien, "the worlds best assassin" on a journey to freedom. Okay. Light reading, steady pace, not too bad.

            But "the worlds best assassin", sorry, NO.
            Pity it wasn't pitched with Calaena's cover story of Jewel Thief, that I could have believed, and would leave room growth and advancement, and probably would have rated it an 8/10. I can't even believe Assassin, let alone the worlds best, she is missing an entire skill-set here. And this is not a gender bias thing, many of our history's great assassins were women, and I'll even accept that some of them possibly did obsess over clothes and looks. Though I'll put money they weren't doing that on the job, distracted assassins don't tend to live long. And her level of awareness is just not going to let her be a good assassin, let alone the worlds best.

            I still managed to appreciate ToG, but constant reminders of the flaws in the main argument were a serious distraction, and drag the score down to 5/10.

                Epic, witty and brilliantly plotted ... I am one of the thousands of people who read this book on fictionpress several years ago and fell in love with it, and I am counting down the days until it gets published
                A fan on Goodreads

                It's not simply good, it's gorgeous and epic, and beautiful, and everything a book should be. Can't wait to get my hands on the polished version
                A fan on Goodreads

                Magic fuses every word of this book together, and I found myself loving all the characters as I got to know them. This is a beautiful read A fan on Goodreads

                Having waited for a long time to see on Sarah's blog that this would be published, I almost started crying when I found out it would be - the only reason I didn't was that I had gone quite numb from excitement
                A fan on Goodreads

                Like Cinderella's love story and the action and competition of The Hunger Games ... then this is the spectacular book for you! This book is going to be HUGE Dark Readers Without a doubt the best fantasy book I have ever read in my life!
                K-Books Review

                I loved everything about it, the strong-willed, kick-ass main character, the fast paced action, the plot that reeled you in but most of all the writing itself was rather astounding. I guarantee you will be blown away! Read, Write and Read Some More This is a book which I found impossible to put down and which won me over heart and soul.
                Dream of Books

                Throne of Glass is the perfect escape to a fantasy world; an epic tale with all the romance of your favorite fairy tale, the action of The Hunger Games, and the political intrigue of Game of Thrones The Examiner Adventure fantasy spiced with titillating romance
