The Throne of Glass Series is a captivating series. The main character, Celaena Sardothien, was trained to be an assassin. She was caught by the royal palace, and thrown into the salt mines, a life sentence. But the king needed a new Champion, the fancy word for professional killer. Chaol, Captain of the Guard, hires Celaena to be his entry into the contest (to determine who will become the King's Champion). This takes you through Celaena's time at the castle, and into her assignments from the King. Though the author goes into much detail in Celaena’s career of an assassin, making the vivid descriptions almost to much.

Lethal. Loyal. Legendary.

Enter the world of Throne of Glass with the first book in the #1 bestselling series by Sarah J. Maas.

In a land without magic, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She has no love for the vicious king who rules from his throne of glass, but she has not come to kill him. She has come to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three murderers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she will be released from prison to serve as the King's Champion.

Her name is Celaena Sardothien.

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. And a princess from a faraway country will befriend her. But something rotten dwells in the castle, and it's there to kill. When her competitors start dying mysteriously, one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival-and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.

Thrilling and fierce, Throne of Glass is the first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series that has captivated readers worldwide.

Sarah J. Maas is the #1 New York Times and internationally bestselling author of the Crescent City, Court of Thorns and Roses, and Throne of Glass series. Her books have sold millions of copies and are published in thirty-eight languages. Sarah lives with her family in New York City.
