Throne of Glass Rating – 4.5 out of 5
Celaena Sardothien is a world renowned assassin but has been imprisoned for over a year. Itching for her freedom; her luck breaks as she is called up to the capital to compete for a place as the King’s Champion. Intrigue abounds as she competes against the other possible champions, makes friends and enemies and faces her largest opponent yet.
“Celaena eyed the pianoforte. She used to play- oh, she’d loved to play, loved music, the way music could break and heal and make everything seem possible and heroic”
–Throne of Glass, pg. 143
Why I liked it
Celaena is the 18 year old that I wished to be. Savvy, a voracious reader, musician and expert in her field she uses her intelligence and empathy to help her solve the problems that she faces. Honestly, I found her to be the most interesting young female character that I’ver read in a while as she proved to be a formidable opponent against all that this book threw at her. As far as young adult lit goes, I would recommend this for the intrigue and suspense as well as a the spirited girl that pulls this book together.
Book Club Question
Is the magic that seems to be just below the surface in this book a coincidence or is Celaena special?
