Library Student Page Book Reviews - For Teens By Teens
Hi, I’m Mackenzie a student page at the L.E. Shore Library, and I’m writing a book review on the first book in the Throne of Glass series. Throne of Glass is written by Sarah J. Maas and there are 8 books in the series.
Throne of Glass is about a teenage assassin named Celaena Sardothien, who lives in a corrupt kingdom with a conquering overlording King. Ten years ago, the King sent in troops to every Kingdom on the continent and murdered their royal families. When the king's son, The Crown Prince of Adarlan, goes to Celaena with a proposition, she decides to accept--for it will mean her freedom. Celaena, at this point, is a slave in the salt mines. To win her freedom, Celaena must become the Kings Champion, which means she will be fighting against the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. She must survive every test and trial in order to proceed to the final, in which she has to fight her remaining opponents to the death.
As other candidates are found dead throughout the castle, their bodies mauled in horrific ways, Celaena finds herself diving deep into the mysteries that surround what happened ten years ago, and her very own ancestors and the creatures of darkness that dwell deep beneath the castle. To survive, Celaena must find out who she can and cannot trust.
I would definitely recommend this book and this series for anyone who is looking for an amazing and intense book to read. Once you start you will not be able to put it down! Throne of Glass keeps you on the edge of your seat for the whole book.
