Throne of Glass contains all the qualities of a typical teen novel: love, actions, fantasy, and mystery. It tells the story of Celaena Sardothien, a notorious assassin serving time in the salt mills of Endovier. One day, she is presented an offer by the Prince of Adarlan: her freedom. Now the only thing standing in her way is 23 other competitors, all fighting in hopes of becoming the King of Adarlan’s champion.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There was never a dull moment, and the competition scenes delivered exactly what I envisioned. Aside from this, there were some confusing aspects (the setting and the dreams) and it was too predictable at times (the love triangle forming and who would be the last two contenders left). I would recommend this book to fans of The Hunger Games or anyone who likes fantasy/love/mystery/action type books.
