Throne of glass
This book series kept me on my toes from the first sentence to the last! With violence, romance and magic this book is at the top of my fantasy favourites list and will no doubt stay there. Celaena is such an original character with hardships and humour that make me want to laugh and cry. Her ability to endure such death, though most she's caused, is an indication of how strong a character she is. I could honestly ramble on and on about how amazing this book is but I would probably stop making sense. So I'm just going to keep it simple. If you read this book you will never look at a pretty face without thinking that she can and will kill you. - Rachael A.

Throne of glass
I loved this book! There is finally a female fantasy character I can love!
Celaena kicks butt, takes names and doesn't sit in a corner and cry about 'why life treated her so bad'.
Young. Beautiful. Deadly.
A renowned killer, betrayed by someone in the shadows of her life, Celaena Sardothien was caught and sentenced to life in the Salt Mines of Endovier. The most brutal prison in Erilea. Everyone is a slave and everyone suffers.
Enter the handsome prince with an offer she cannot refuse (literally).
In order to win her freedom Celaena must compete against the most gifted assassins, thieves and all-around brutes the land has to offer in a tournament to become the 'King's Champion'. Deciding that a death of her own choosing is better than slaving away until she drops, Celaena is "whisked off" to the capital.
Once in the palace, Celaena is drawn into the intrigues of court life. Closely guarded, she trains constantly but her haunted innocence seems to inadvertently draw people close to her. Surrounded by scheming courtiers, murderers and unseen magic forces, Celaena must draw on all her will-power to succeed. She cannot afford to fail. She cannot go back to Endovier.
