Waiting on Wednesday: Throne of Glass

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My selection for this week is:

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Publication Date:August 7th 2012
Publisher:Bloomsbury USA Children's

Summary from Goodreads:
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.

What I think:
After reading Grave Mercy, well, all I can say is that assassins is YA fiction became all the more alluring to me. I have a thing for assassins surely but I just hadn't associated them with YA literature and that's my loss obviously! Throne of Glass caught my attention from the moment I read its premise and I just can't wait to get this one in my hands!


  1. This title keeps popping up, I think it's time to put it on my wishlist :)

    My WoW
    Happy Reading!

  2. The publisher sent me this book but I haven't read it yet, it looks amazing.

    Love the blog! I followed on GFC.

    my WOW
