Throne of Glass, 4.3 Stars

Summary:
In a land devoid of magic and ruled by a tyrannical king, Celaena Sardothien, a lethal assassin, is summoned to the castle not to assassinate, but to fight for her freedom. If she triumphs over twenty-three other killers, thieves, and warriors in a deadly competition, she will be released from prison to serve as the king's champion. Celaena must confront an evil lurking within the castle's glass walls, one that begins to murder her competitors. Her quest for freedom soon turns into a fight for survival and a mission to uncover the evil threatening to destroy her world.

Thoughts:
Having read Sarah J. Maas’s ACOTAR series, I approached Throne of Glass with a mix of anticipation, intimidation, and skepticism. While I enjoyed the world-building and characters in ACOTAR, some of the explicit romance scenes were not to my taste. Throne of Glass, however, pleasantly surprised me by focusing more on the plot and fantasy elements (not intimidating), which I personally prefer.

This first book is basically a set up for the series. It’s reminiscent of some of my favorite YA fantasy’s, such as Powerless, Red Queen, The Remnant Chronicles, and Dance of Thieves.

Celaena Sardothien is a complex FMC—both deadly and extremely girlish. At times, her character felt a bit inconsistent, like I was questioning, whether or not she was really an assassin because she came across so girly it didn’t seem to fit the image of an assassin, but as the series progresses (I already started book 2), her depth and development become more apparent. The dynamic between Celaena, Crown Prince Dorian, and Captain of the Guard Chaol provides a delightful dance of loyalty, friendship, and romance, without overshadowing the plot.

I loved Dorian’s character. ❤️ His gentle nature and desire to rule differently from his tyrannical father, his love for books and his gift of Fleetfoot to Celaena won me over completely! 🥰🥰🥰

Chaol, on the other hand, is more stoic and loyal to a fault. Like, Celaena, there were times when his character was a little difficult for me to believe. For example, when he made his first kill, he was so distraught which seems surprising that as a captain of the royal guard, his first kill would be happening now and I’m not prior to receiving the position.
On the other hand, I do think his actions during the final duel reveal layers to his character that I have a feeling will be turning point in his relationship with Celaena.

The competition itself, with its life-or-death stakes, adds a layer of suspense and intrigue that kept me hooked. The mysterious evil within the castle and the slowly unraveling backstory of Celaena’s past was so great. I love how Maas leaves little nuggets/clues to keep the reader guessing! I can see how fans rave about her books!

Overall, Throne of Glass is an intriguing start to what promises to be a refreshing fantasy that balances action and intrigue with just the right touch of romance!

Celaena, as much a snotty little princess as any other in the book, seemed to forget at times that she was a paid assassin who--and I'm making an assumption here--was paid to kill people. She often became uncomfortable around death and gore, and upset about the deaths, though her background suggests that she likely killed many and mercilessly before. That aside, the story was interesting, held my attention and raised many questions. ( )

Entertaining and intriguing, but there were details and moments that didn't make sense or seemed poorly edited. I reached out to other readers and was told I NEED TO KEEP GOING -- all will be revealed! What kept me reading so far: enjoyed the world created, the relationship tensions (all of them, romantic, friend-or-foe, who's aligned with who). ( )

I liked it enough to want to know what happens in the next one. But honestly it feels a little flat. ( )
