Throne of Glass (Turtleback School & Library)
Throne of Glass (Turtleback School & Library) | Sarah J Maas
In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king's champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien. The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass--and it's there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.

I started and stopped this one in the past, but this time I powered through. I enjoyed it by the end, but I wasn‘t as caught up as I hoped to be. For a trained assassin, the main character felt very immature. What I‘m wondering is, does the series keep getting better? Is it worth continuing? I know that the first book is often the weakest in a series like this and I‘d love to hear feedback on if I should continue.

xicanti I wasn‘t wild about this one either, but I gave the series another chance and ended up loving many of the later volumes. The books are far from flawless, but when they work, they really pack a wallop. 3w
AvidReader25 @xicanti that‘s really good to hear! I‘ve had so many people recommend the series to me and I want to love it. 3w

“He was done with politics and intrigue. He loved her, and no empire, no king, and no earthly fear would keep him from her. No, if they tried to take her from him, he'd rip the world apart with his bare hands. And for some reason, that didn't terrify him.”

Finished this one first for this year. Still just as good as the first time I read it. Continuing series will happen.

Given slavery or freedom, Celaena Sardothien chooses freedom-- the cost, a competition to see who can become the king's champion and personal assassin for hire. Not only must she compete against other ruthless assassins, but dark magic & jealously, too, as she catches the eye of the prince. YA & not as sensual as other Maas books such as A Court of Thorns and Roses.

I truly don‘t know what to say.
Maas has a lot of fans all over the globe but I don‘t think I will be one of them.
Was the story/plot a good one? Yes.
Was the writing amazing? Can‘t say one way or another.
Will I read the rest of the books? Maybe.
Don‘t know if I enjoyed it enough to finish the series. I also may or may not have spoiled what Celaena does to Chaol in later books and I am not happy.
Did you like these books? Should I continue?

So I‘m not completely sure how I feel about this one. I felt like the whole book was slow and dragged out for what seemed like a predictable ending. Maybe I‘m comparing it too much to The Court series. It was great story telling but I felt myself wanting more than what I was reading. Like I wanted each page to give more than what it gave. So for now it‘s a so so.. going to start the second book in hopes for more.

AkashaVampie I have heard that this book is more just for the world building and very slow. I believe they get better. 5mo
Jennaferr That makes sense. And I hope so because I bought the entire series 😂 5mo
Jennaferr Oooh I see, well I hope it does because I bought the entire series and I‘m committed lol 5mo

Hmm, did I enjoy this significantly more than the attempt to read ACOTAR? Yes. Did I enjoy it enough to borrow the second one and place a hold for the third? Also yes. Do I think I‘m going to finish the series? Doubtful.

I liked the book overall and will continue with the series. The only real issue I had was there were time the book summarized large chunks of the story. I feel like at least a little more detail would have been nice. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

😲❤️ These book covers alone! Depending on how much focus gets placed on the love triangle, I may get weary of the characters over time, but for book 1 in this series, I had so much fun watching these characters show their true personalities. And while some plot points were easier to figure out, the story moved along so quickly I didn‘t care. #TeamCaleana

behudd It is a very fun series for sure! 8mo

Really enjoying this YA fantasy. Even though the love triangle is obvious, it‘s not overpowering. I‘m much more invested in Caleana, the champion contest, and the Wyrd marks mystery.

Been in a bit of a reading rut and little one has been sick so haven‘t picked up a book in a few weeks. But I finally decided to start Throne of Glass. I‘m only on chapter 9 but it‘s definitely pulled me out of my rut and I‘m enjoying it very much. Can‘t wait to see where the story goes !

Thought I would finally dive into the world of SJM but I don‘t know where to begin 😬

Question for the group: As a Sarah J Maas virgin, which book should I read first??

#BookNerd 🤓💙📚

BrittanyReads I started with ToG and have yet to read the book of novellas lol I will warn if it's your first read through, book 1 is weak but stick with it the series gets so much better and is one of my faves! Enjoy! 10mo
JuliaTheBookNerd @BrittanyReads Thanks, I think I‘ll start with ToG ☺️ 10mo
Lyssa131330 I agree, book 1 is the weakest. I read Assassins Blade first and it does give detail for many events mentioned later on, so I liked reading it first but the most common recommendation I‘ve seen is publication order (so third I think) 10mo

Sooo I definitely have a massive book hangover after finishing HOSAB; but I finally have the motivation to finish the TOG series 😅 so yet again I‘m going to listen to books 1-4 again and possibly listen/physically read the remaining books, depending on my mood 📚⚔️

BrittanyReads Enjoy! I finished Tower of Dawn in 2020 and have been putting off reading the final book (idk why..) but now I'm forgetting everything. I'll def need a recap! 😵‍💫 11mo

Bk6 of February & Bk2 of #FabulousFebruary #readathon is done! After the ending of AHOSAB I figured I‘d do a huge reread of all her books(spoilers!) For a YA fantasy it has some heavy themes going, don‘t let the fact most of the MCs are under 21 deter you, this is a pretty epic fantasy in my book🤴🏻🥷🏻🧝🏼‍♀️ #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #PennyPerPage #Pop22 #FinishingTheSeries #52BookClubRC2022 #Pageathon #BooklistQueenRC

Rating: 4 🌟
Book: 8 of 2022

Finished up my January #DoubleSpin this past week and forgot to post about it! Fantasy is a new genre for me and at first I was a little unsure but by the halfway point, I was hooked. Thankfully so, since I have the entire series on kindle.

I couldn‘t care less about how pretty Celeana was but the characters would ramble on about it. I also was a bit tired with the love triangle–especially because I already knew who I was rooting for and I predict they‘ll be together by the end of the series.

I still really enjoyed the read and I got more into it the further I read. The narrative really raises the question of morality. I loved the characters and worldbuilding.

blurb

Throne of Glass is about an eighteen year old girl named Celaena Sardothien in a corrupt kingdom with a tyrannical ruler, the King of Adarlan. Celaena is a trained assassin who is serving a life sentence for killing hundreds of people. One day Celaena gets offered a deal by young Captain Westfall: her freedom in return for a huge sacrifice. As the tale progresses, Celaena forms unexpected bonds and uncovers a conspiracy amidst her adventures.

Mmeso Ifebuzor Celaena feelings of powerless is expressed when she is forced to choose between no future at a death camp or her freedom at the expense of her will, by joining the very man who ruined her life. However, Celaena is determined to gain her freedom no matter the cost 12mo
Mmeso Ifebuzor The throne of glass is written in third person, narated by Elizabeth Evans. The story is mainly told through Celaena, but occasionally other characters such as Prince Dorian, Chaol, and even the King.
Throughout the book we grow to understand Celeaena‘s desire to be free as she struggles with her past, growing emotions, as well as the complicated feeling and friendships she forms.
12mo
Mmeso Ifebuzor I would recommend this book to reader that love adventure, magic, and a bit of mystery. This book is for reader above the age of 12 as it has slightly difficult vocabulary, as well as the emotions are better understood by a more mature reader. 12mo
MissYaremcio Nicely done Mmeso - I am so glad that you are enjoying this book! 6/6 12mo

Just because I'm in a reading slump doesn't mean I can't buy books for when I've recovered. I've heard so many good things about these I couldn't resist the deal. Even though I think Amazon is the devil. Consider me corrupted I guess.

Being an 18 year old, famously feared, female assassin thrown into a competition of all men to battle for her freedom is something that I could never imagine. Combine that with a fascinating world, politics, outlawed magic and visitors from beyond the grave and you're in for a very interesting read! Trauma, suspicions and a love triangle keep you on your toes while wondering who (if anyone) you can trust. Excited to start the second book!
