Book Trailer: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men—thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the kings council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.


  1. This novella was fantastic! The character development from the first novella, "The Assassin and the Pirate Lord" has moved at a perfect pace, slow enough to be realistic and moving with all the entertainment of an exciting young assassin paving her way in the world and discovering her identity and morals.
    The development of the complicated relationship between Sam and Celaena is progresses beautifully and realistically.
    This book is beautifully crafted, with deceit, romance, intrigue, and action. Maas has painted a vivid fantastical world, with assassin guilds, false identities, glass castles, and political intrigue.

      I don't know if Danmark is the original writer of this review, but there have been a rash of review comments being copy and pasted in the comments of another review. I will not tolerate plagiarism. These people work hard on their reviews and it's not right to copy them unless given permission or a source link is provided.
