Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas Book Summary
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 king's 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.
Throne of Glass (Sarah J. Maas) Book Reviews
Must Read!!This is my favorite series! Witches, magic, kings, queens, assassins & ohhh the drama & fighting! I couldn’t put this book down. I lost many nights of sleep reading book after book! I regret nothing!.Score: 5/5
InvestingMaas is so incredibly detailed, and it’s clear how thought-through every element of the story is. She never includes something that isn’t integral to the story itself, and there are never loose ends left untied!!! She also is simply a master at throwing in plot twists with ease that even left me, someone who loves to predict the future, surprised. Highly highly highly recommend, but only if you have the time on your hands to get invested. Because I promise you; you will..Score: 5/5
A Throne of GlassFantasy is one of my favorite genres to read, so I was interested in this book immediately. I loved the world building and how much we learned of Erilea from this book alone. I enjoyed most of the characters as well. My particular favorite is Nehemia, but Celaena is a strong protagonist. The only issue I have is the plot is rather predictable. I think adding in a layer of magic to the story was great, and made it more interesting, but the tournament results and the murderer were easy things to predict. I’m also not crazy about love triangles, but I definitely enjoyed the book, so I will pick up the next one for sure..Score: 4/5

NiceI really love the characters, and just the sheer humor in it. Although, I would say to leave out the innuendo, and crude dialogue to make it a little cleaner, (since a quite large percent of readers are under 13) but otherwise, its good..Score: 5/5

One of the best book series I’ve ever readTo be honest the first two books I wasn’t really that into, but once you get to book three the authors writing gets so much better and the character development throughout the series is phenomenal. I finished all of the books in the series within 3 days, they were that good! By the last book I couldn’t believe it was over, and I still have a lingering sadness that I don’t get to read more about the characters that have worked their way into my heart..Score: 5/5

Give me more.Oh this book. It was great to see Celaena come to herself again and strengthen. And oh Dorian. But oh Chaol. I can’t. 😭 I love the friendship between Nehemiah and Celaena. It was so nice and I hope it remains that way! This journey is going to be a long one. But honestly, I also feel like the way this ended was a way like as a just in case other books didn’t come along? That might just be me. I cannot wait to keep reading the series. I’m excited. And oh the quotes from this book. I’m in love. 😍 Also, I so did not see the way she was going to win. That, was really cool..Score: 4/5
GoodI liked it. I feel like somethings were a bit rushed. At times the characters felt a bit flat (to me idk why)... but I enjoyed it. I liked the love story, and I did also like the characters. Great characters actually, through a bit flat at times to me. Good book though. Somewhat predictable. But I really like the whole world/setting. *SPOILER ALERT* I was sad when she broke up with Dorian. Celaena is all sad over Sam, then she’s kissing Dorian. Then she’s like FREEDOM, bye Dorian... We shouldn’t be together!!! And I’m like: NOW U CARE?!?!? I knew she was going to break up with him though, that’s just what happens in books. Dorian and Nehemia r probably my fav characters... and of course I like Celaena and Chaol is good.Score: 4/5
DisappointedI just finished re-reading Ms. Maas amazing Court of Thorns and Roses series. They are INCREDIBLE. If you have not read them- do yourself a favor and buy the series!! Maybe because I fell so in love with those characters and that world, this book fell flat. Really dissatisfied with the character interactions, after being so very impressed by the character development in her other series..Score: 2/5
Great PlotLoved the storyline, but I’m sure I’m repeating many others when I say Celaena is a total Mary Sue. You can’t be 18, the greatest assassin in the world, a flawless pianist, and drop dead gorgeous without any character flaw. I don’t really count arrogance as a character flaw. I was able to get passed my issues with her character because it is a very compelling read, but since I’ve read SJM’s other books I can say I’m glad she’s put more depth and some flaws into her later writing. I’m hoping the rest of this series explores some of Celaena’s flaws..Score: 4/5
Just Have FunThere are def fantasy books with more realism, and more complicated characters, but this IS YA. If I was 12, I would have gone bananas for it. As an adult, I’m just having fun. It’s cute and a nice little escape. I read her adult series, so decided to check this one out, too. TBH, a year into this pandemic, the last thing I want to read rn is anything resembling real life; so, this is perfect. Give me young characters in a world of fantasy, having crushes on each other, and going after the bad guys. It’s the book equivalent of a 3 lb. bag of candy ; ).Score: 4/5
Throne of Glass is amazing!!I’m just going to be honest I’m absolute trash for Sarah J Maas. She is an incredible author and absolutely gifted in her books! She makes characters that you just fall in love with! I’ve all ready finished all of the ACOTR series books and am so excited for the new silver flames book! I already pre orders it. Now to the actual review of TOG this story features a very strong women and I love her! I adored how strong minded and sassy the MC was. This is a wonderful exciting and fast paced read. I definitely recommend!.Score: 5/5

Throne of GlassThis book is fluidly written, but I found the plot was predictable and the author leaned too hard into the would-be red herring. I found Celaena and this cast of characters less interesting than the prequel, with the exception of Nehemia. Unfortunately this book also perpetuates age old myths about corsets. Corsetry and tight-lacing, which was historically rarer than it was common, are different things. Corsets are a predecessor to the bra, providing support for the well endowed and creating the understructure and silhouette for dresses with the help of padding, stuffing, and other implements in other areas. Dramatic narrow waists are an illusion created by a combination of these parts. No, corsets aren’t painful unless it’s poorly made, the wrong fit, it’s not being worn properly, or she hasn’t had waist training, which wouldn’t be the case here, since the palace is dressing her and she’s more than familiar with dresswear. People are perfectly capable of putting on a corset by themselves, as common women had to..Score: 3/5

An enjoyable start to a long, twisty fantasy series.Throne of Glass was recommended to me by a friend, and I’m really glad I started this series, because it’s great. In the land of Erilea, magic is dead. A cruel king sits in his glass castle, greedy for power. And in the salt mines of Endovier, one young woman is determined to redeem herself. Celaena Sardothien is her kingdom’s most fearless assassin- but she’s been enslaved in the mines for her crimes. With the help of a charming prince and a gruff captain of the guard, Celaena is given an opportunity she can’t pass up: compete to become the king’s champion and win her freedom. But a dark force is brewing beneath the castle, and Celaena must discover what it is before it destroys Erilea itself. I liked Throne of Glass, and I think the worldbuilding was spectacular. There is an info-dump at the beginning, but once you get past it, everything else in the book is fine..Score: 4/5

Weakest book in the series, but the series terrificThe throne of glass is a really fun series, with lots of terrific characters and no silly plot twists that ruined game if thrones for me.
