I know the cover is the typical young adult cover that is HORRIBLE and
looks like a teen made it but, you must trust me when i say it is an
AMAZING book. The only way I can describe this book is utterly beautiful
and
heartbreaking at the same time. Celaena is the best young adult heroine I
have read of by far. The story begins taking you to Endovier,
which is a salt mine that the highest criminals in Adarlan are taken to.
Celaena, also know as Adarlans Assassin, was captured and
had spent a year working the mines, put there by the king himself. But
the Crown Prince Dorian comes to bargin with her. The king has decided
to have a competition. With 23 members of his council, the king makes
them choose their "Champion" all of which are thieves, assassins, and
warriors. And the Kings son, decides to have Celaena, the greatest
assassin in the world, as his champion, only to defy his father. He
promises Celaena the one thing she has ever truely wanted, freedom. But
it comes with a price. Celaena must win the competition, defeating all
the champions in grueling tasks and tests, and if she wins, she must
serve as the kings "Champion" for 4 years, killing for him and doing his
bidding before she is released. If she doesnt win, she is sent back to
Endovier and a certain death. But while Celaena is at the Glass Castle,
something more comes out of her relationship with the prince. You
are led through the heart break of what Celaena had to encounter in the
mines, and her courage to fight
and never run, while she makes friends she can trust and relationships
never to be broken. Amazing from start to finish I rate this book 5
stars and recommend to anyone looking for an kick butt heroine.

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. She has come to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three murderers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she will be released from prison to serve as the King's Champion.

Her name is Celaena Sardothien.

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. And a princess from a faraway country will befriend her. But something rotten dwells in the castle, and it's there to kill. When her competitors start dying mysteriously, one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival-and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.

Thrilling and fierce, Throne of Glass is the first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series that has captivated readers worldwide.
