Review: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Title: Throne of Glass
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Series: Throne of Glass #1
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Children's
Release Date: August 2, 2012
Pages: 404

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.
Well, basically I loved ACOTAR and had to read Sarah J Mass' other series, THRONE OF GLASS. I have to say it was pretty damn good. Dorian stole my heart in this book.

My Intial Thoughts after finishing THRONE OF GLASS: 
♦ I love Celaena and her badass self!
♦ My heart belongs to Dorian!
♦ I could care less about Chaol!
♦ Duke Perrington NEEDS to DIE!
The King needs to CHOKE on his own BLOOD

Looking forward to seeing what happens next!
