Throne Of Glass #1

Throne Of Glass
by Sarah J. Maas

"Her Past And Future Were Seated On A Glass Throne"


As Adarlan's greatest assassin she was the best, no one got near her, no one could stop her, no one - save a select few sworn to secrecy on pain of death - knew who she really was. Then her world was shattered, she was betrayed, captured and had spent the last year in the death camp otherwise known as the Endovier Salt Mines. The last thing she ever expected was to be rescued from hell by the son of the man who had sent her there to rot.

The King was holding a contest to find a Champion. With the entrants put forth by the courts council little more then thieves and assassins, what better way for Crown Prince Dorian to get back at his father then to enter the one person his father loathed, the girl Celaena Sardothien, better known as Adarlan's Assassin. But in doing so he would start a chain of events that will forevermore shape the future of his kingdom.

Throne Of Glass is a position of power in a kingdom that is broken, defiled and subjugated. As a powerful king seeks only more power, an assassin will be the only hope for a land in turmoil, for a people enslaved, for friend in need. In this addictive world of murder, magic, politics and secrets is an engaging story of an unlikely heroine. The first in a thrilling new series.
