This got me sitting on the edge of my seat. It is filled with Gory, Suspense, Romance, and a whole lot of sarcasm.

well made plot, however the characters seemed immature for their character designation, as a world class assassin seemed much like a fourteen-year old girl

The Throne of Glass is one of my favorite books! It's action-packed, gory, based on a different world, and romantic. Celaena Sardorthien, the main protaginist, is a notorious assassin. she is swift, deadly, and heartless. She has been summoned to the castle by the King of Adarlan, whom she despises. The king says he will release her on one condition: Celaena must participate in a contest. a contest against twenty-one thieves, murderers, assassins, and prisoners. If she wins this fight to the death competition, she will gain her freedom and be titled as the King's Champion. Will the once deadly assassin participate in this bloodbath? For her freedom? A new life?

THIS BOOK IS SOOOOOO GOOD!!!!! I would recommend this book to teens. This book has such a thrilling story behind that cover. Celaena is a assassin who is trying to be the King's Champion. I won't write more because I don't want to spoil the book to the readers. But I warn readers who cannot stand very gory and violent books so I recommend this book to people who are open minded to everything.

This book was SO good, I read it in one night. I recommend it for high school students. This series is about an assassin, but I'm not going to give any spoilers to those young readers out there. Anyways, I recommended it to all my friends, who also read it and loved it. I TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK IT WAS ABSOLUTELY GREAT!!! I couldn't put it down. :)

I couldn't put it down! It has so many plot twists. When you think you figured it out it ends up turning into something else.

An adventurous tale involving a female assassin, a love triangle, a strong friendship, an enchanted world filled with magic, and a fight to the death.

Adaraln's Assassin was the most feared killer in the world--until she was captured and sent to a prison labor camp to rot. But when the Prince needs a skilled fighter to battle in the royal court and become the King’s Champion, he pulls the assassin out of prison only to find she is a blonde 18-year-old girl. Celaena is as beautiful as she is deadly and she jumps at the chance to earn her freedom. Her mission seems straightforward: be the last (wo)man standing at the end of the competition. What she doesn’t expect is to develop feelings for the two men protecting her and to make an unlikely ally in a princess. Sarah J. Maas’ debut is stunning from beginning to end. Throne of Glass stands-out because of its memorable setting (there is actually a castle made of glass), strong characters, and continuous heart-stopping action sequences. Celaena is a heroine as memorable for her fighting abilities as she is for her quick wit and large heart and I can’t wait to see her grow and change throughout this exciting new series.
