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 kings council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for three 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.



Followers and fans of Sarah J. Mass have been waiting with breath that is baited for months- some even years- for the cover reveal of Throne of Glass, book one to the series of the same name. It's finally made available to the masses, and the longer I look at it, the more I like it. TOG was revealed on Facebook, which if you want to view it makes you join up- which I find disgusting- but sites like Goodreads and other bloggers have it available without demanding you for all of your personal information first. 


Don't forget to check out the first three prequel novellas, seen below, before you read Throne of Glass!


The Assassin and the Pirate Lord

A Throne of Glass novella.

On a remote island in a tropical sea, Celaena Sardothien, feared assassin, has come for retribution. She’s been sent by the Assassin’s Guild to collect on a debt they are owed by the Lord of the Pirates. But when Celaena learns that the agreed payment is not in money, but in slaves, her mission suddenly changes—and she will risk everything to right the wrong she’s been sent to bring about.


The Assassin and the Desert
Throne of Glass, Book 0.2
Amazon, B&N, Goodreads
--------------------
The Silent Assassins of the Red Desert aren’t much for conversation, and Celaena Sardothien wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s not there to chatter, she’s there to hone her craft as the world’s most feared killer for hire. When the quiet is shattered by forces who want to destroy the Silent Assassins, Celaena must find a way to stop them, or she’ll be lucky to leave the desert alive.





The Assassin and the Underworld
Throne of Glass, Book 0.3
--------------------
When the King of the Assassins gives Celaena Sardothien a special assignment that will help fight slavery in the kingdom, she jumps at the chance to strike a blow against an evil practice. The misson is a dark and deadly affair which takes Celaena from the rooftops of the city to the bottom of the sewer—and she doesn’t like what she finds there.

Sarah J. Maas takes the reader on an adrenaline-filled, fast-paced adventure with the world's most famous assassin, Celaena Sardothien. With rich and vivid prose, Maas extends a warm invitation to fans of Throne of Glass to step into Celaena's world two years before the events leading to her capture and imprisonment. I enjoyed the opportunity offered by this novella to observe a version of Celaena I had never seen before: younger, still unpolished, and struggling to balance her idealistic views of the world with the harsher demands of her assassin training. I can't wait to see what the remaining novellas have in store--and to see how the rest of Celaena's story unfolds.
