Celaena Sarthodien is an 18 year old assassin, The best Assassin of Adarlan
We all love heroes who save the day and usually also save the damsel-in-distress but, and a female strong lead? It something a lot better!
She was caught and taken captive in the Salt Mines of Endovier, where she suffered atrocities ordered by The king Of Adarlan, Calaena has almost not seen the sun for a year and is desperate for her freedom, When the opportunity is presented by Dorian Havilliard, The Crown Prince Of Adarlan, Calaena can’t miss the chance
Calaena has to fight for her freedom, for that ,she has become the prince’s champion and win the competition to serve the king as Royal Assassin for 4 years but along with her, other thieves, assassins and rouge warriors would fight to, too win the much coveted place.
At first, I thought that it will be some-what similar to The Hunger Games, but it was not, though it was as wonderful!
The story was a-w-e-s-o-m-e I loved LOVED the love triangle and Calaena’s sass,the way she treated others and the way she treated every situation presented to her and also, the way she deal the Arrogant-yet-hot Crown Prince and the Captain Of The Guards,Chaol Westfall.Also, there were no helpless female leads, who have to depend on the male lead to help her through *phew!*
“My name is Celaena Sardothien. But it makes no difference if my name’s Celaena or Lillian or Bitch, because I’d still beat you, no matter what you call me.”
Then, it is not only Assassins and competitions..yes! it has magic too! Although its banned in Adarlan, but its still there, along with wicked creatures of the otherworld ,Evil Kings, Ancient Queens with Agendas,scary creatures, mysterious symbols, this book has all!
I don’t like love triangles at all, but I love the triangle in Throne Of Glass. Its was great read and one should not miss this series!

“You could rattle the stars,” she whispered. “You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”
