Due to many BookTubers praising this series I just couldn't refrain from picking it up as well. Celaena is a notorious assassin and feared widely. What hardly anyone knows though, is that she's also just an 18-year-old girl who's grown up under rather difficult circumstances, enjoys clothes and loves to read. After having been held as a slave for a year Celaena is being released from her prison to compete in a vicious game to become the King's Champion. Is that what she really wants, though - betray her beliefs and people for the prospect of freedom? I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand I quite enjoy the general way the story is going, but on the other hand I can't quite connect with the characters. Overall "Throne of Glass" is an entertaining read and I recommend it to fans of "The Hunger Games" and "Shadow and Bone".

This book is set in an extraordinarily fascinating world, where Celaena Sardothien was sent to the Salt Mines of Endovier. After one year the Crown Prince of Adarlan appears and makes her a tempting offer: Freedom for the rest of her life, after four years of servitude to the King. But only if she wins the competition for the Champion. And there´s when the story starts. I liked this book from the beginning. It was gripping and alluring. After reading the prequel Novellas I had to know what will happen with Celaena. (SPOILER ALERT!) So after encountering the Captain of the Guard and the Crown Prince, I had the feeling, that there will be a love triangle. The switch of the POV´s (between Celaena, Dorian and Chaol) only confirmed my suspicions. I really hate love-triangles, but this book didn´t focus on it, so it was okay. The concept of the competition was really exciting. As much as I hate to admit it, it reminded me of The Hunger Games. So as a huge fan of this book, I loved this concept from the beginning. The competitors who are played off against each other, the allies Celaena is making and the enemies. Oh I loved it. That were the parts I enjoyed with the most. Then we got to know a character I adored from the start: Nehemia. A strong-minded, beautiful and resolute princess of Eyllwe. I liked her from the first sentence I read about her! She becomes a close friend to Celaena (her last friend Ansel betrayed her) and she gave Celaena kind of support. She could speak to her (in Eyllwe) openly and they had the same opinion when it came to the King, the court and the country. Especially the scene after the King´s soldiers had butchered 500 Eyllwe slaves broke my heart as Nehemia lay crying in Celaena´s arms. As Celaena started to think that maybe Nehemia is the source of the mysterious deaths of the Champions, I didn´t believe it, becuase I loved this character so much. I am so glad that Nehemia is “one of the good persons”. The mystery in this book kept me reading. At some points I had to force myself to stop reading. The Samhuinn as Halloween in this world was fantastic! It is my favourite feast/holiday so I liked that much. And then Celaena discovered the secret passageway! And then the sarcophagi! Oh I couldn´t stop reading. It was my favourite scene when she encounters Elena, first Queen of Adarlan, half Fae! I hope I will see more about magic and the Fae in the next books! Especially the Wyrdmarks and Wyrdgates are something I want to know about more. It seems to be some special kind of magic. Then at about 200 pages I started to dislike Dorian. Before starting to read this book I decided to NOT take sides, when it comes to sides, because I was warned, that eventually I will take sides. I decided that I will be Team Sam. Because I loved Sam in the prequel novellas. But when I started to sense that Celaena started to like Dorian and after seeing that Dorian is a … how do I say it. Spoiled brat? Yeah. Chaol on the other hand was far more interesting: I love this character! He´s the Captain of the Guard and of course has to mistrust Celaena, because she is an assassin. But as he gets to know her better, he starts to trust her. His feelings for Celaena developed slowly. He didn´t like her from the start (compared to Dorian) and that is what I liked the most. I think that is a much deeper attachment. My opinion on Celaena: I´ve heard and read that many people dislike Celaena, because she´s “obsessed with her looks”, “unintelliegent” or “not a badass as promised”. I have one thing to say to those people: Shut up and read the book again and try to understand this character or leave it be. Celaena might be an assassin and one would think that because of this she has to be deviously, badass and manipulative, but they don´t understand her. Yes, she´s the most feared assassin of Adarlan, but that doesn´t begin to describe her. She has a difficult past and was betrayed so often in her life that she has difficulty to trust a person. And those who´ve read the prequel novellas understand the sentence “I am Celaena Sardothien and I will not be afraid.” I can imagine that those who haven´t read these Novellas misunderstand this sentence. It doesn´t mean that she is NOT afraid, actually, she´s quite often afraid. But Sam told her how to deal with her fear or rather how he delt with his fears. Of course she is scared sometimes, but she is strong, physically and emotionally, because she lived through one whole year in Endovier. I really liked Celaena, because she shows how to be strong and afraid at the same time. That reminds me a bit of what Ned Stark said ;) But altogether I loved this book and I am looking forward to reading the next!
