După 1 an de muncă silnică în minele de sare din Endovier, Calaena Sardothine, o asasină de optsprezece ani este adusă în fața Prințului Încoronat Dorian care îi oferă libertatea în schimbul îndeplinirii unei condiții: trebuie să se înscrie într-o competiție pentru găsirea unui nou asasin regal.
Adversarii ei sunt tâlhari, asasini și războinici de pe tot cuprinsul regatului și fiecare dintre ei este sponsorizat de către un membru din Consiliul Regal.
Dacă își va învinge oponenții, va servi regatul vreme de trei ani după care va fi liberă.
Celaena se va antrena cu căpitanul gărzilor, Westfall, dar viața la curte rămâne la fel de plictisitoare.
Lucrurile devin mai interesante în momentul în care Prințul își manifestă curiozitatea pentru ea, dar unul dintre adversari moare urmat de un altul și nimeni nu știe cine este ucigașul.
Va reuși Caelena să îl descopere înainte să devină următoarea victimă?

Sarah J. Maas is a New York native who currently lives in the California desert. This is her first full-length novel to be published, though she already has a large online fan base, many of whom discovered the Throne of Glass world in its first incarnation, on www.fictionpress.com, when Sarah was just sixteen. She is a prolific blogger and you can find out more at www.sjmaas.livejournal.com.
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 exhilirating. 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.
It's not simply good, it's gorgeous and epic, and beautiful, and everything a book should be. Can't wait to get my hands on the polished version
Magic fuses every word of this book together, and I found myself loving all the characters as I got to know them. This is a beautiful read
Having waited for a long time to see on Sarah's blog that this would be published, I almost started crying when I found out it would be - the only reason I didn't was that I had gone quite numb from excitement
Like Cinderella's love story and the action and competition of The Hunger Games . . . then this is the spectacular book for you! This book is going to be HUGE
Without a doubt the best fantasy book I have ever read in my life!
I loved everything about it, the strong-willed, kick-ass main character, the fast paced action, the plot that reeled you in but most of all the writing itself was rather astounding. I guarantee you will be blown away!
This is a book which I found impossible to put down and which won me over heart and soul.
Throne of Glass is the perfect escape to a fantasy world; an epic tale with all the romance of your favorite fairy tale, the action of The Hunger Games, and the political intrigue of Game of Thrones
