Throne of Glass…. It’s almost like Game of Thrones…. I love it! ❤
But seriously, I almost had a GOT vibe. Main character Celaena Sardothien is an assassin, but not just any assassin. She is the best of the best, and heir to the guild of assassins. The is wealthy, beautiful, dangerous and 16. No one and nothing stands in her way.
Celaena and close, but irritating associate Sam are sent on a mission to revenge their fallen friends who were killed at the hands of a pirate. However, their mission changes when they realize they are bargaining not for the price of their friend’s death but for the price of a 100 slaves.
(Let be honest, beautiful, dangerous 16 y/o, freeing slaves… can someone say Daenerys?)
This is the first book of Sarah J. Maas that I have read. This was a novella prequel to the main novel, Throne of Glass. I am a little unsure of the reading order of this series. I also think that there is a series with the same character before this series. But I’m finding it hard to understand the order… If anyone knows… PLEASE tell me.
I really like Sarah J. Maas writing style. It’s very easy to read, not much rambling detail, but filled with enough action and information to be intriguing.
The main character is very interesting, being so young and such a good fighter, this novella leaves you wanting to know more about her. How she got to where she is, who trained her, what she has to go through and what is the guild.
There is obviously a lot of thought put into the landscape and the politics of the land and people. You get a taste for all of this in the novella, so I am excited to learn more in her next books.
I would recommend this to people who like YA, adventure and fantasy novels.
