Synopsis (Goodreads)
Meet Celaena Sardothien.
Beautiful. Deadly.
Destined for greatness.

In the dark, filthy salt mines of Endovier, an eighteen-year-old girl is serving a life sentence. She is a trained assassin, the best of her kind, but she made a fatal mistake: she got caught.

Young Captain Westfall offers her a deal: her freedom in return for one huge sacrifice. Celaena must represent the prince in a to-the-death tournament—fighting the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. Live or die, Celaena will be free. Win or lose, she is about to discover her true destiny. But will her assassin’s heart be melted?

Wow… I am 100% certain that Maas and Celaena Sardothien are definitely going to be ones to watch in the future.

I was pulled into Throne of Glass in the first few pages and I just simply could not put it down until I had finished it, and even then, I just didn’t want it to end. I simply adore Maas’ writing. It’s as if her words are weaving a spell around the readers heart and binding them to these books.

Overall, a strong start to the series, and I know that I cannot wait to see what {and where} Maas takes these characters.
