Fans of The Hunger Games will enjoy Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. This novel tells the story of a 17-year-old girl named Celaena Sardothien, who is the most feared assasin in all of Adarlan. After being imprisoned in the harshest death-camp for a year, the Crown Prince of Adarlan gives Celaena an offer she cannot refuse: compete in a competition against 23 other hopefuls to be the King’s assasin, and after four years of serving the King as his assasin, she will be given her freedom and her life back. Though the other competitors aren’t all that Celaena has to face: there is something evil lurking in the castle that’s killing Celaena’s competitors and it’s after her too. Celaena is the only one who can stop the terrible murders and save everyone.
Throne of Glass is a book that keeps your attention during the whole read. Though I found it to be very predictable at times, the ending was something that I didn’t expect. Celaena is torn between her love for two men. She will fight for what she knows is right, even if it’s not something that she wants to do. Celaena Sardothien bears many resemblances to Katniss Everdeen, but she is also very much her own individual person. I highly recommend that fans of The Hunger Games read this book.
