Book Review: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Hey everyone. 

I am thrilled to share my first book review. Over the past few weeks I have reread Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, which one of my all time favorite books, and the sequels are just as good. It is a fantasy novel that is a lot like The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau (another great book). Throne of Glass is part of Sarah J. Maas's first series, and has five books out so far, with one more to come. Without further ado here is a quick summary:

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier after being caught,ruthless 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 tough challenges and eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for four years and then be let free and forgiven of her crimes.. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilarating. But she's bored by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her ... but it's the CaptainWestfall who seems to understand her best. Suddenly a contestant turns up dead..and then another one. Can Celaena solve the mystery before it is too late?
This is a very captivating book that you won't be able to put down. I would recommend it to people who have enjoyed The Hunger Games, The Testing,or Game of Thrones or anyone who is looking for a good fantasy.

That's all for this week. Next week there will be another wonderful review of a different tbf author. Sorry for any typo's, my computer was not cooperating! What can I say, I am book person not a technology person!
