Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

To be honest, I had gone in this book being extremely skeptical. The story with as much hype as this has, and only good at that. It was bound to disappoint me. And maybe exactly that mentality saved me from getting disappointed.
But I loved this book. Filled with interesting conflicts, fun characters, epic battle scenes, and a few snickers and tear worthy moments.
This was also a sort of story that didn’t made the whole love-triangle thing yawn worthy. I liked the whole three ends of them. Maybe the precise reason being none of the male characters were cardboard, rather fleshed out in really interesting personalities.
The only problem I had with this book was, the line between good and bad was just too…neat.
Either a character was black, or white. Celaena’s being assassin didn’t helped much either. She was brave, ruthless. But completely nice.
But still, an interesting book. Fleshed out fantasy world, light toned, fun read through to the end. Highly recommend it…to the small proportion of humans out there who still hasn’t read it.

  1. I was skeptical about Maas’ works anyway. I gave ACOTAR, and abandoned it since the story couldn’t grip me. Her style was interesting, and ideas too, so I would be willing to give her Throne of Glass series a chance—plus, assassins are awesome.


  2. I also liked that the male characters were fleshed-out interesting people and not just cardboard cut out good-guy/bad-guy love interests. I do agree though that the evil/good line was a bit too neat, especially because at the start I thought Celaena would present a really conflicted anti-hero but she’s essentially a “good” heroine who is forced to do bad things occasionally (though later books in the series do add a little more conflict there). However, I still loved the book and have continued with the series!
