Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)
An alternate cover edition can be found here.

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her ... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead ... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

    Loved this book as much as I did the first time around! Very happy I'm starting off this reread right. I can only hope I love the later books as much as I loved the first installment. ...

    Let me first say the Throne of Glass series is one of my absolute FAVORITES of all time. But I cannot deny that this first book is pretty shaky. If you're just starting this series, hang in there: it gets better. The sheer scope of the worldbuilding in this series is phenomenal, so che...

    Once again, it seems like I'm in the minority for this book because I didn't like it. It's such a shame too because I'd heard a lot of good stuff about it. Oh well, maybe it's just me...or maybe because this book just plain sucks.Let's start off with our protagonist, Celaena who's the ...

    What I was expecting: What I got: Assassin fail. Annoying heroine win. Maybe I could buy this chick as a badass had she not been:- Annoying - Immature- Petty- Vindictive- Judgemental- Unintelligent - Emotionally unstable- Obsessed with appearances- Ruled by her hubris- In love with exc...

    DNF at 29%I'M SORRY. I JUST CAN'T DO IT. I feel like I could have really enjoyed this book... Two years ago. The hype absolutely killed it for me. Celaena is also really annoying so I'm just going to stop reading this. I know everybody says the books get better later on but I like to e...
