Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy.

While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?

HOW DO I EVEN BEGIN? I seriously scorn myself for not starting this sooner. This book has been the best thing that has happened to me this month, and I’ve had a pretty awesome month if I do say so myself – that’s putting into perspective how totally freaking amazing this book is. I loved this book as much (if not more) than the previous ones, and I wasn’t even sure that was possible!

Warning: this review is obnoxiously long, and I can’t bring myself to shorten it.
I’m currently going through a major book hangover, so this review is full of pointless totally necessary gifs, and some fan art. 😛

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.

 

My Review

I didn’t have a clue what I was getting myself into when I started reading Throne of Glass. I knew with all the raving reviews from different people that the book was going to be amazing, but I didn’t think I’d love it this much! And on that note, I’d like you to say hello to my FIRST EVER FIVE STAR RATING! 😮 What a beautifully narrated story, packed with most of my favourite things  – love triangles, fantasy, action, magic, romance and mystery!
