The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2013 Sarah J Maas's novels have been an online sensation with bloggers the world over hearing about her. Her protagonist is 18 year old Celaena; beautiful but deadly and destined for greatness but only if she can free herself from the life sentence she's serving... Fast-paced and epic in stature this is not to be missed.

Definitely a 14+ read in our opinion.

Synopsis

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Celaena is a trained assassin, the best of her kind, but she made a fatal mistake. She got caught. Young Captain Westfall offers her a deal: her freedom in return for one huge sacrifice. Celaena must represent the prince in a to-the-death tournament - fighting the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. Live or die, Celaena will be free. Win or lose, she is about to discover her true destiny. But will her assassin's heart be melted?

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 20120608

Without a doubt the best fantasy book I have ever read in my life! K-Books Review 20120531 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 guanatee you will be blown away! Read, Write and Read Some More
