Welcome to a book review of Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Throne of Glass is a retelling of Cinderella. However, I think this goes for the series more so than to the first book. Thone of Glass is the first book of the series and revolves around Celaena Sardothien, a skilled 18-year old assassin, being chosen to compete in a competition to become the king’s champion after spending a year in the salt mines for her crimes. The Crown Prince, Dorian, is the one who chose her to compete for him. She is the only female in a competition up against thieves, assassins, warriors, knights, and who knows what else to become basically the king’s hired hand. Sarah J. Maas pulls us through amazing scenes of luxury and grime as well and fighting and class when other contestants come up dead. Celaena struggles staying out of trouble and staying alive while also trying to figure out who is targeting her competition … and her?

Sarah J. Maas deserves a 5 star rating for her wonderfully written novel Throne of Glass.  She develops intriguing characters, a love triangle, and unforgettable details. With Maas, any details she adds are added for a reason. Pay attention!

I cannot stress enough how amazing she is of an author. This series, though long, is well worth the read. Throne of Glass is the first book of six and you’ll enjoy every minute of it. Emotions are captured beautifully as well as fight scenes and gore. I have no idea how she has so much talent as a writer but I want her to keep writing.


I love, love, love Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Her writing is amazing and I just can’t get enough of it. Have you read Throne of Glass? What were your thoughts?
