Lethal. Loyal. Legendary.

Enter the world of Throne of Glass with the first book in the #1 bestselling series by Sarah J. Maas.

In a land without magic, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She has no love for the vicious king who rules from his throne of glass, but she has not come to kill him.

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. And a princess from a faraway country will befriend her.

Seconds💜. This was the second time reading and it was just as good as the first. My favorite author!!!

One of the best book series I’ve ever read. To 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.

Investing. Maas 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.

Thrilling. Captivating, intrinsic, beautiful written.. I found myself rushing to turn the page and yet willing myself to slow down you have done it again author!.

So incredibly fun!. Can’t wait to dive into the next book in the series!

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!

Incredible 1st Book of the Series. Wow! From chapter 1 I was hooked. Great job keeping the story interesting with every turn of the page. I couldn’t put it down!

My go to story. Love love love The characters The stories The mood

It’s ok. I guess I am a bit stingier with my star ratings than others, but I oh well. Where to start.. this book claims to be about an assassin, and you constantly hear about it, feels like it’s mentioned almost every page, but there is little to no action before 60-70% of the way through the book. What little action there was felt lacking, and I was really disappointed that the tests felt dull, with most of them occurred off screen. The main character didn’t feel very greatest assassin-esque, and it seemed like she cared more about her appearance and being invited to dinners and events than earning her freedom. In all, it wasn’t terrible, but definitely don’t get where all the hype came from on booktok.

She’s the best. Just read it, you won’t regret it

TOG. Read this after finishing the ACOTAR series because I love the SJM world so much!! This is very similar but more mystery/adventure and less romantic (still there but not the main focus) everyone says the 2nd and 3rd book of this series makes the slowness of the 1st worth it so I’m in it for the long haul!

Add this to your To-Read List asap!. Some of the best writing I’ve read. Nothing in the story felt like fluff or useless to read. I liked how easy the author made the world feel while reading about it. Also making likable characters such as Choal and Celenea. The story’s fight/action scenes were fun to read. Everyone’s backstories were explained well and the villain was executed well too. Can’t wait to read the next book.

A Throne of Glass. Fantasy 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.

In it for the long haul. I really enjoyed the characters and plot. I can’t pronounce half the names lol but I wanted more scenes with all of them so I guess I’ll have to keep reading 😁

So good!. I loved all the characters and the development of the story!

Just Have Fun. There 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 ; )

Surprisingly good!!!. Edge of or seat reading!!! Very entertaining, I like the page turning effect this book causes you to do. I like the main characters attitude in this story as well. Not disappointed!!!!

Dangerous. This book was so interesting, but its content doesn’t show the full picture until the end of the book. It felt like a portal to the demonic. If you are a Christian, don’t read this book.

Throne of Glass. This 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.

Great Plot. Loved 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.

A book I’ll quickly forget. Story fell flat. Main character was really bizarre to me—perhaps not enough of her back story was given? I just could not piece her together properly throughout this whole book— she really made no sense to me. Actually, it’s not just the main character, a lot of the characters fell flat in the same way.

Slow but picked up later in the book. It took me forever to get through but I’m glad I finished it!

handsome read. the choice of 3rd person narration proved to provide a good picture of the reality each character faced and set the pace for an entertaining read

A little disappointed. This book was a decent read, but the plot and characters were underdeveloped. The protagonist is full of contradictions and feels like an empty shell plagued with the classic YA fantasy tropes (beautiful, dark past, dead parents, more talented than everyone around her). Just felt a bit cheap. Won’t be reading the rest of the series probably.

Good!. I read tons of reviews about pushing through but I didn’t have a problem at all with this book being to slow. It was good!!! Im ready to begin the next book with anticipation of what the king will make her do.

Throne of glass. Loved this book could not put it down, I would read til 1 in the Mrng! Know to the next book in this series

Great read. A fast paced novel full of otherworldly adventure and captivating characters.

My Favorite Series !!!!. I’ve never taken the time to write a review before but this series deserves it. I’ve read the whole series and after reading it I had to take a break from reading because I couldn’t find another book that even compared to this series. Read the whole series, highly recommend.


Great book. This was a great, original, plot. Great characters. I normally only read the free books so paying $9 for this book wasn’t worth it.

Soooo good!. Can’t wait for more!

Amazing read!. An amazing read, that was hard to put down!

READ READ READ. as i’m reading i feel as if i’m watching a movie! no detail is missed! i love the game of thrones era with hunger game style competition and tricks.

I Fell in Love with Reading Again. While I enjoyed this book, I understand many found it a slow read. But I’m begging you, do NOT give up on this series. Push on until the third book, you will not regret it. This is the greatest series I have ever read. Keep in mind while you’re reading this that Maas first wrote this an an amateur. I believe she wrote the first version of this when she was a teen and later rewrote it. You will see her style grow and develop in time. My favorite parts of this novel involved the creepy library scenes. I’m a sucker for a good spooky tale and I was thoroughly creeped out. When it comes to writing a compelling plot, strong female characters, and trauma, Maas is simply unmatched. She made me fall in love with reading again.

You gotta push through!!. Coming back after I finished the series to review this. Y’all, this book was a bit of a drag but you HAVE to hold on! The second book gets a bit better, more action, and then the third and fourth completely blow it out of the water. The fifth book brought me to tears. If you’re a fan of Sarah J. Maas definitely hang in there, this series is worth it.

Meh. Difficult to get through. Got good at the end.

Great!. I love these books. Don’t ever want to stop reading them.

Good start. Kind of slow at first. More world building than character development but a good story. After reading the entire ACOTAR series twice in 2 weeks, I'm excited to get started on this.

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!

great. super good, from the second i started i could hardly put it down.

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.

Disappointed. I 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.

LOVED!!. I wasn’t sure if I’d be into it, but IM OBSESSED and finished in a few days. I just love her writing style & how you really don’t know what’s going to happen next!

Loved it!. It only gets better and better trust me!!!!

I loved it. This book put me through so much heartbreak and also so much joy. I loved it so much overall. 10/10 recommend

Absolutely the best. Oh, my gosh, I read this in less than a day, and oh my lord was is the best thing I’ve ever read, it’s, amazing, well written, intoxicating and beautiful with the best female lead in it. This was truly a very enjoyable experience to read, really, I really HIGHLY recommend this book😍😍😍

Best series ever. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas is the first book in a series. Caelena Sardothian is a young assassin who gets taken to the palace to participate in a contest to be the king’s champion. While in the palace she must succeed in contests in order to make it to the final four. She’s the only women participating and must deal with other contestants bothering her. Strange things are happening in the caste, and contestants start disappearing. Caelena must find out what’s happening, win the contest, and hope to stay alive and out of the kings radar until then. This book is a great first book in a series and has lots of romance, action, and plot twists. You won’t want to put this book down!

this book was SO slow. the ending was good, and i’ve heard the series is great so i’m sticking w it, but my god did this take forever to read. like probably a whole month is how long it took me to finish it. if you’re in a reading slump, i recommend you read something else otherwise you’ll never get out of it. but, like i said, the last 10% of the book is really good so not one star💀

Nice. I 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.

BEST BOOK SERIES EVER. I loved all of the characters and how I felt so connected to them. And Celaena is just so amazing! I loved everything about her! I definitely recommend this book to you❤️

love it. It's probably one of the best series' I've ever read. The first book was probably the worst one in the whole series, so if you don't like it, don't give up!!!

weakest book in the series, but the series terrific. The 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. A better read with a tighter plot, good character development, and an internally consistent world that is a joy to visit. Escapism at its best.
