    I do not know why I waited so long to read Throne of Glass by Sarah Maas. I really don’t…But regardless, I picked it up last week and it was all I could think about. At first, I was expecting something a little like The Hunger Games but in a different period. It’s not really like that though. I’m glad to say it’s completely different. At least to me it was. Celaena Sardothien is a tough kick butt heroine. Trained to be an assassin since she was eight years old by the King of Assassins, she has learned a lot. Now she is an eighteen year old who is smart, caring, a little arrogant…well no scratch that she is really arrogant about her skills and reputation as an assassin. After being imprisoned in the salt mines of Endovier for a year, Dorian Havilliard, Crown Prince of Adarlan gives her a way for her to earn her freedom… Out of 23 competitors, Celaena is the only woman in the bunch. But of course she doesn’t find that the least bit intimidating. Though she is confident in what she can do, the competition is far from a cakewalk even for someone like Celaena and soon people start ending up dead. Worried not only about her safety, but those of her friends and people, she realizes that she must do whatever it takes to stop the evil that’s begun all while fighting to become the King’s Champion. Some of my favorite scenes include Dorian and Celaena. They have such witty banter. These two could argue/talk all day and I would never tire of it. There chemistry is great. I’m secretly hoping that they get together in the end. I kept telling myself just one more chapter, one more chapter. I was so enthralled by the story that I quickly lost track of time and before I knew it, it was 4 in the morning. I haven’t gotten that into a book in forever. The pace of the story was good and there is plenty of action, adventure, deception, and solid characters that kept me more than a little entertained. I. Loved. It. Now I am on to the second book, to discover what happens next. If you enjoy fantasy or historical fiction with some action/adventure than I would definitely recommend this book in an instant.

    Amazing book

    I read the summary and knew this was the right book for me. Once I downloaded it I read it nonstop and finished in less than 5 hours. It's a great book for people who like books about girls dominating and older setting from medieval times. This book has some very descriptive parts and it draws my into the book like I'm actually there. I loved it

    Very nice

    Romance and Killing I would say this is more of a 3 and 1/2 stars. Almost a 4.The thing I enjoyed the most about this book was not the good fight scenes, or magic or slow building mystery, or kickass female lead character...but the budding triangle. And I hate that sort of thing. Why I enjoy it this time is that I felt the strongest point of the book was the characters and their development. None were flat or too predictable. They had distinct personalities and all pretty likable. And importantly....their actions and reactions make sense and don't feel forced. I enjoyed all of their interactions. So I find myself rooting for all of them. All of their interactions were interesting and never boring. I look forward to future books and how they develop as well as discovering more about Celaena and her history and importance in the fight for the future of the kingdom coming.The next Major point for me was Celaena herself. I like that she was this trained killer, and very hard due to her life experiences, but she also had this vulnerability about her that made her relatable. Sometimes in the quest to create this tough, badass female character...the character is made too hard. Like steel...and kind of become removed from the reader. I like that she still had this part of her that like pretty dresses and a good looking face, and who was damaged and made mistakes, and sometimes wanted to run and hide and quit…she wasn’t not perfect...they all made for an interestin

    The first few chapters are thrilling and capture your interest in the heroine and the battles she will be fighting. But then it took 99 pages to get her dressed and into the arena for practice which left me annoyed. I haven't finished but I want to read the 2nd novel for the romance factor. I hope itcis not as tedious.

    Wonderful read!

    Strong female, lots of plot twists. Story line keeps you turning the page to see what happens next. Love the misery and gore she comes from.
