From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.

Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.

Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena's world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie... and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.

I'm still waiting for my book to come in from the library. Hopefully it will be before the weekend so that I can read it then.

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 11402 comments Mod
I plan to start it next week.

OK, I'm finished and all I can say is WOW!
So many excellent twists and turns, and Celaena is coming into her own and behaving less like an arrogant child and more like a true assassin and leader.

Discussion questions will be up tomorrow as it is past my bedtime :)

I think this is the turning point. Hope you enjoy it, Jonetta!

Discussion questions are up HERE

Allison (rainy-day-reads) I liked this one so much more! The debut novel feeling is gone with the end of the competition, and background that was only hinted at is explored more fully. Celaena still has her selfish child moments, but overall she's finally maturing.

Definitely looking forward to book 3.

So did I, Allison! I have a much clearer understanding of the world, characters and critical conflicts. And, yes, Celaena evolves (thank goodness).
