Quotes from Throne of Glass
Meet Celaena Sardothien.
Destined for greatness.
“Libraries were full of ideas–perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”
“Shall I gag you, or are you capable of being silent without my assistance?”
“Second place is a nice title for the first loser.”
“You could rattle the stars,” she whispered. “You could do anything if you only dared.”
“Some people just need a high-five. In the face. With my knives.”
In the dark, filthy salt mines of Endovier, an eighteen-year-old girl is serving a life sentence. She is a trained assassin, the best of her kind, but she made a fatal mistake. She got caught.
Young Captain Westfall offers her a deal: her freedom in return for one huge sacrifice. Celaena must represent the prince in a to-the-death tournament—fighting the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. Live or die, Celaena will be free. Win or lose, she is about to discover her true destiny. But will her assassin’s heart be melted?
Sarah J. Maas made my favorite authors’ list from the ACOTAR series and I wanted to indulge in more of her fantastical worlds so I started the TOG when the Empire of Storms came out last year. The series is well hyped and I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed at least and boy was I right.
Although I felt a bit downstep while reading Throne of Glass but give it chance guys, she started it when she was 16! and now that I’m reading Crown of Midnight ( second book of the series) I feel how Maas has so much to offer, the ACOTAR and ACOMAF proves that the writer has grown so much since.
The story starts with Sardothien, a character I fell in love with since I read the prequel to the series, and how she is rescued from Endovier to fight for the crown prince. Endovier is a barbaric prison which not just physically tortures but mentally breaks down its prisoners, Caleana’s year in the horrific vast also costs her, but what?
The king of Adarlan is a cruel, cruel man and have conquered Erilea forcefully. Most of the Erilea despise their monstrous king, and so does Caleana, but she fights for the crown prince nevertheless, for her freedom. But she isn’t alone, and Dorian; the crown price isn’t the only one mesmerized by Celeana, she managed to intimate the captain of the royal guard as well.
Celeana is an assassin, all her life she worked for Arobynn Hamel; the assassin-king, and then was sent to a nightmare of a prison camp, now she’s in the Glass Castle representing the crown prince and fighting off death till she’s the king’s champion.
But Celeana isn’t the only one sponsored for the deathly competition, there are numerous other soldiers, warriors, thieves and even beasts that would be a part of the fatal games. Sooner than our heroine expected, she starts questioning her choices and decisions.
We also expect romance, since J.Maas knows how to please her readers, but who is the romance between? The assassin and the royal family are not the only players in the series, there’s Fae, magical creatures of the ancient history, and of course magic.
Expect blood, blade, love, battle, and indulge in a fight for the freedom. We know Celeana doesn’t die, but she sure can be sent back to Endovier or tortured, or worse, she could be bound to serve another master.
- What does Celeane lose in Endovier?
- Does Celeana beat them all to become King’s Champion?
- What kind of monsters and Magical creatures lure around Erilea?
- Who does Caleana fall for, The royal or the Noble?
