In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king’s champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien. The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass–and it’s there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena’s fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.

Throne of Glass Characters

  • Aelin Ashryver Galathynius aka Celaena Sardothien:
    The Queen of Terrasen and main protagonist of the series. When she was young, her parents were murdered and she was found near-dead by Arobynn Hamel, the King of Assassins. Trained from childhood to become one, she earned a reputation as the greatest assassin in the world. However, she was betrayed and imprisoned by her master in the salt mines of Endovier. With her reputation, Celaena gets offered an opportunity to participate in a competition to become the King’s Champion. If she wins, she must remain in the King of Adarlan’s service for 4 years and will then be granted her freedom and a full pardon. During the contest, she adopts the persona of a jewel thief name Lillian from a port in Belhaven to avoid her identity being revealed. In the following books it is revealed that she is the lost Princess of Terrasen, and that her ancestors are Mala Fire-Bringer and Brannon Galathynius. Her lineage makes her key in saving Adarlan from the Valg forces and grants her immense magical power. She is described as beautiful and possessing striking features, talented, clever, and arrogant.
  • Rowan Whitethorn:
    A full-blooded Fae who is over three centuries old. He has silver hair and pine-green eyes. He can take the form of a White-tailed hawk and his powers include ice and wind. A few hundred years prior to the events of Throne of Glass, his mate, Lyria, and their unborn child were killed. He was tasked with training Aelin when she came to Doranelle to see Maeve. He was previously blood sworn to Maeve, but Aelin made a bargain with Maeve to have him freed from it honorably, and he swore a blood oath to Aelin immediately after. He and Aelin eventually fell in love and married, and were revealed to have been mates, but Maeve had tricked Rowan into believing Lyria was his mate, then had her killed, in order to leash him to herself. She had predicted Aelin’s immense fire magic and wanted a way to control her via her mate. Rowan and Aelin did not recognize that they were mates, which Maeve found interesting.
  • Dorian Havilliard aka King of Adarlan:
    Havilliard chooses to sponsor Celaena as his contender for the competition to become his father’s champion. He tries at times to stand up to his father, but he is never fully able to defy his father. His best friend is the Captain of the Guard, Chaol Westfall. Dorian is also bright, having a curious mind and a love of reading. He is adept at solving problems and will search for the answers to questions even if no one else can or will help. He also possesses a great deal of loyalty, as he goes out of his way and endangers himself to protect his friends. Dorian is tall and lean, with raven-black hair with his eyes being sapphire blue. Before meeting Celaena, Dorian is a vain heartbreaker, a puppet of his tyrannical father. His father took all the magic out of the kingdom and made it illegal. Dorian, however, has inherited raw magic with the goal to hide it from his father. Dorian later falls in love with the witch Manon, heir to the Blackbeak clan.
  • Manon Blackbeak Crochan:
    Manon is an Ironteeth witch and heir to the Blackbeak clan, one of the three clans in the Ironteeth witches. Her grandmother is the Blackbeak Matron. Her coven is known as the Thirteen, the fiercest coven in the Ironteeth witches. She went to Morath to train in fighting with wyverns, along with many other witches, where she develops a strong bond with her wyvern, Abraxos. She is revealed to be the last Crochan Queen. She is the key to unlocking the curse on the witches’ homeland, the Western Wastes, as she was born of both Crochan and Ironteeth blood. Her father was a Crochan prince, and her mother an Ironteeth witch. Her alliances change in Empire of Storms, as she pursues change for a greater cause.
  • Chaol Westfall:
    He is the Captain of the Guard, and is very wary of Celaena throughout the first and part of the second book, as he recognizes the threat she poses to the kingdom. He is very close to Dorian and is willing to sacrifice his life for him. Throughout the first book, Chaol helps Celaena get back into shape during the tournament, training diligently with her every morning. In the second book, he enters into a love affair with Celaena. This affair ends after the murder of Nehemia, which Celaena blames Chaol for, because Chaol did not warn Celaena about the threats against Nehemia’s life. By the end of the series, he has rekindled their friendship, and Chaol has a new love, a healer who cures the paralysis in his legs. Chaol has been described to have a friendly relationship with his guards, and they appear to trust and respect him he is very loyal and honest.

Editorial reviews and praise for throne of glass

“Readers seeking the political intrigue of Kristen Cashore’s Graceling and its sequels or the deadly competition at the heart of The Hunger Games will find both in Maas’s strong debut novel. . . . The verve and freshness of the narration make for a thrilling read.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“A teenage assassin, a rebel princess, menacing gargoyles, supernatural portals and a glass castle prove to be as thrilling as they sound. . . . Celaena is still just a teenager trying to forge her way, giving the story timelessness. This commingling of comedy, brutality and fantasy evokes a rich alternate universe with a spitfire young woman as its brightest star.” ―Kirkus Reviews

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas is a tale full of surprises and shadows, where deadly seeds are sown with the promise of more danger to come. A fascinating glimpse into the dark side of Cinderella.” ―Colleen Houck, the NYT Bestselling author of the Tiger’s Curse series

Caleana Sardothien, young woman assassin, is betrayed and sentenced to the salt mines of Endovier. After a year, however, she is given an opportunity: If she wins a contest to become the king’s champion, she will be granted a four-year contract, working as an assassin for the empire she hates, at the end of which time she will be freed. After reading the premise of the book, I thought, “Sign me up!” After the first chapter, I knew I was in good hands. This book has plenty of mystery, magic, humor and romance — a perfect brew for fans of good YA fantasy. If you liked Graceling, Grave Mercy, Shadow and Bone or other fantasies featuring strong female protagonists with scary good skills, I think you’ll enjoy this quite a lot. And it’s the first of a series!

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were well formed and excellently developed. There are recognisable and enjoyable twist on the classic Cinderella. Example Celaena Sardothien’s fairy godmother is a ghost of an ancient warrior queen. There are also slight touches such as Celaena has an innate charm with animals. I was also very impressed with the pacing and evolution of the story. Honestly the 406 pages just seem to fly by. Just because Celaena was the greatest of assassins after being in a death camp for over a year she need to capture her old form, but her skills are still intact. Also I like the way the author plays with her feeling even though she is an assassin she is still very young and prone to her feeling and ego getting hurt.
The book does leave a lot of questions many of which are for the second novel, but as much as I hate prequels I will have to read the back up stories on the kindle version. I cannot wait for the next book and am really looking forward to what is going to happen next. Like I said earlier this book was more about Celaena recapturing her old form and claiming a position of power, also setting up her side cast, I am expecting a lot more action in the next book after all the training in this book.

This book was sooooo goood! The main female character is amazing, SHE WAS PRACTICAL. Not to mention completely badass, and could kill anyone with a hairpin if she wanted to. Great high fantasy, i cannot wait for the next in the series! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

2021: it’s amazing how my mind can change after 5 year. First of all, I had a great read. Second, this plot is so good, I couldn’t take my hands off this book.
And last, I remember that I really loved Dorian (as you might see from my 2016 review), but this time it was Chaol. He was the best character of this book. 2016 review: This book was SO GOOD. I loved Celaena, Chaol and.. Oh man.. Dorian. And I don’t care if Dorian and Celaena won’t be together, but it definitely would be perfect. Although I don’t think it’ll happen. Never mind. I love this book and can’t wait to start the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A series for all ages!!!
Reviewed in the United States on August 26, 2017

Okay, truth…my daughter is 10 and in the 5th grade. Grandpa, an avid reader like myself, went out on a limb and bought the book for her last Easter. We struggle to find books that are in her 8.4-9.5 reading level, have age appropriate content with a plot she has the life experiences to connect to and comprehend, that are also challenging AND interest her…tall order. We have read all the popular series – adore Harry Potter, of course; tore through the “Greggor the Overlander” series, etc. – so even though in previewing the series I noticed it contains some very minor-vanilla…no F-bombs or S$$T level, mature-type language, and there are a couple scenes that hint at an intimate relationship in book 2 (trying not to spoil books), I gave the book a green light. We started reading it together, taking turns reading aloud, and were BOTH immediately, read 30-40 pages at a time, wake up needing to see what happens to Celena, come home from school hoping to fit in a read and “see what Celena has gotten up to now” before dance, hooked like I have never seen her before!!! And while she is an awesome reader, she is not, by any means a sit & read person, preferring to dance, sing, socialize, game, etc…yet another challenge to add to the list. The challenged are important to note because the way Maas has crafted the characters has achieved what NO OTHER series has for my daughter, and that is to draw her in to the point she NEEDS to keep reading, every single day. The characters are beautifully developed to the point where my daughter was crying when she thought her favorite character died, and was angry at who did die. Maas has painstaking developed 3-dimensional characters that are ever evolving, and that are relatable to all ages. She has also created an entirely new setting that is similar enough to other books of the same genre, like Hunger Games (she has read/watched all), yet it is entirely new & fresh. The writing is clear & thought-provoking, and she weaves in asides & flashbacks that challenge and engage readers. We have had the most incredible conversations and my daughter has made multiple connections to other texts, movies, life, and especially music/song lyrics while reading. These connections are the reason I personally & professionally recommend the series to children beginning at age 10 who are reading at a 6.5-7+ grade level, primarily due to the challenging vocabulary. The twists and turns, the co afflicts & themes, character interactions, vivid & selected detailing, and obviously careful/thoughtful word choices make this series, in my opinion, an award winning, best selling series. As a reading specialist and 18 year veteran teacher of struggling readers, I fully give not just this book, but the entire series 5 stars! I could rave on and on…but I don’t want to give away a single detail and only, sincerely hope what I have shared has piqued your curiosity enough to give the series a try yourself, along with a loved one, and that through sharing our personal experiences with the books I have helped answer the question of reader age appropriateness & interest level. Buckle up…it’s a wild, wonderful ride through Adarlan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars is simply not enough.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 9, 2018

I’m genuinely struggling to put into words how gripping and compelling this story truly is. When it comes to novels based in new worlds I normally struggle to get gripped on the story, but from page one I could easily see the world Sarah masterfully created. And from page one I was hooked. It’s the kind of novel I couldn’t wait to finish, but at the same time I didn’t want to read it as it came to an end. Sarah created a new world, one full of mystery and wonder. The story had me hooked so much that I went through the motions with the characters, I laughed, flushed, cringed, and cried throughout. The third person, head-hopping writing perspective is becoming a new favourite reading style for me, it gave a broader outlook on the story as a whole, and gave a closer look at the characters.

Celaena, she wasn’t what I expected, in a pleasantly surprising way. It became quite clear early on that those in her close company could only grow to love her as I did. She was written so well she didn’t feel like a character in a story. I feel like she is a good judge of character, so when she liked someone I was immediately drawn to them, and when she hated someone I felt that too.

“When she missed – well, even the fires of Hell couldn’t compare to the rage that burst from her mouth.” This has to be my favourite description of Celaena written from Dorian’s point of view. I laughed, probably harder than I should have, but that moment was completely priceless. I love Dorian, Chaol, Nehemia and Elena in equal measure. I hope to see Nox again too.I truly cannot wait to get lost in Sarah’s world once more in Crown of Midnight, also, how amazing is the cover artwork on these novels?!
