Throne of Glass, Sarah J. Mass+
Throne of Glass is a young adult fantasy novel. I can attest to the fact that it is very those two things so if that is not your cup of tea I would skip this one. It is about a 18 year old assassin named Celaena Sardothien. She is the most feared assassin on the continent but one day she gets caught. After she gets caught she is sent to a slave camp and this is where the book starts. She is found in the camp by a hooded man who brings her to the Prince of Ardalan, Dorian. He tells her of a competition that his father the King is having. The competition is to find the best assassin in the land who will serve the king. Her reward is that she will gain her freedom. Celaena is an amazing female character who does not care what anyone else thinks and will not step down for any man. She has so much sass it is amazing and as a person who would love to be sassy it was great. Her interaction with all of the other characters are amazing. She is an amazing character and overall amazing woman in all respects. She was an amazing point of view for an aspiring feminist.
Bottom line: I started reading the Throne of Glass series earlier this month as the first book of the month. This was a mistake. The Throne of Glass series is an amazing series with major twists and turns along the way. I was completely hooked. So if you are planning to read more than just this series over the month read this book last. This book is definitely not for anyone less than 13 I would even say possibly late 13s at the most. Celaena is amazing but she does have a bit of a foul mouth. There are also many kissing scenes so that is why I would say late 13 at the most.
More please…: 9 Just because of the foul language and the kissing.
