Haley Harves , Staff Writer

An evil king, a conquering kingdom, and a competition featuring the most dangerous individuals in the country. In Sarah J. Maas’ exciting and suspenseful book, Throne of Glass, you’ll get all of these elements. Celaena Sardothien, a 18- year-old assassin, has returned to the capital city of Rifthold in the country of Ardalan after a year of slavery in the mines of Endovier. She has returned to represent the Crown Prince in a fearsome competition put on by his father. If she wins, she will become the King’s Champion for five years, then she’ll finally have her freedom. But soon after arriving at the castle, she realises that there is a threat far more dangerous than her fellow competitors lurking about. After warriors start getting murdered left and right, a plot is uncovered that will change the world forever.

This is the first installment of a seven book series.
