Throne of GlassAuthor: Sarah J Maas
Series: Throne of Glass
Books:  The Assassin’s Blade, Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, Queen of Shadows, Untitled #5, Untitled #6
Genre: Young Adult High Fantasy

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilarating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her… but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead… quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

This series is one of my all time favorites. I haven’t read the novellas yet, those are in The Assassin’s Blade, but I plan to start with them when I do my re-read soon before Queen of Shadows comes out in September. You might consider starting there as Throne of Glass does have spoilers for things that are in the novellas (I know one of them is about someone from her past that’s about it). Seriously if you haven’t read this series, DO IT.
