You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.
I loved Throne of Glass! The story is about Adarlan's Assassin, Celaena Sardothien, who was placed in a competition against 23 killers to serve as the King's Champion for 4 years before gaining true freedom. She is put through Tests to assess her skills, but then one by one other competitors are mysteriously murdered. And others are bound to know why.
"My name is Celaena Sardothien. But it makes no difference if you call me Celaena or Lillian or Bitch, because I'd still beat you, no matter what you call me."
In the middle of the ongoing competition, we also get to know more about Chaol (Captain of the Royal Guard) who always keeps an eye on her, and also Dorian, the handsome Crown Prince of Adarlan. She begins to make friends despite her intimidation so that's a good thing. But something evil lurks in the castle too, slowly killing competitors one by one.
To tell you the book is good is an understatement. Because more than that, this book is amazing. I'm constantly awed at the tension of the story and the new creatures I came across. It reminded me a lot of Daughter of Smoke and Bone. It was a mix of light romance, fantasy, and fluff - everything I want in a book!
I don't know what to do to get you all to read this amazing book, but if you love Daughter of Smoke and Bone and fantasy novels mixed with light romance, you'll enjoy Throne of Glass!
