|A Court Of Mist And Fury
In a world devoid of magic and ruled by an absolute king, an assassin is summoned to the palace. She has come here not to assassinate the monarch but to bargain for her freedom. If she can beat out twenty-three other convicted killers, thieves, and warriors to become the king’s champion, she will be released from jail. The name Celaena Sardothien may be familiar to you.
She will be incited by the Crown Prince. The Guard Captain will protect her. But the terrible presence is within the glass mansion. Celaena’s fight for independence becomes a desperate attempt to stop the planet from being destroyed by evil before her rivals begin eliminating each other one by one.

Synopsis of the Book Throne of Glass
I loved this book. All of the characters felt real and were skillfully presented. All the classic Cinderella themes are here, along with some nice additions. For example, Celaena Sardothien’s fairy godmother is the reincarnated soul of a fierce warrior queen. Subtleties abound as well, such as the fact that animals are instinctively drawn to Celaena.
The rapidity and complexity of the plot also left me impressed. Even though there are 406 pages in the book, it goes by swiftly. The talents that made Celaena the finest assassin in the world remain intact despite her having spent over a year in a death camp. Another strength is how the author plays with her feelings; despite her assassin’s training, she is still a young lady with sensitive feelings and low self-esteem.
Even though I despise prequels, I will have to read the supplemental stories on the Kindle edition because the book leaves many questions unresolved, many of which are for the second novel. I absolutely must know what happens in the next book. Due to the training Celaena had in this volume, I anticipate a great deal more action in the next volume, as the plot of this one centred on her regaining her previous form and capturing a position of authority.
Can we take your statement at face value? I have no idea what causes this occurrence. Slavery has been forced upon the person generally agreed to be the most infamous killer in the area. But a chance to compete in a tournament featuring deadly fighting against the area’s most talented thieves and assassins allows her to recover her freedom, albeit only partially. The tournament administrators conveniently leave out the king’s unequivocal statement right before the final duels that the only way for a contestant to win is to ensnare their opponent.
Former guards and other criminals make up a sizeable portion of the participants; I won’t bother mentioning them all because most are so unremarkable. Some tremendous skill is required to get from all that Exciting Sounding Awesomeness to…well, Throne of Glass.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t until I read the author Q&A that I realised the book was inspired by Disney’s CINDERELLA. If you’re like most people, you’re asking where Cinderella fits into this scenario.Isn’t this the tale of a trained killer turned slave who finds herself in the middle of the deadliest tournament ever? However, that is not the case. No need to express gratitude; if reiterating my opinion that this book is stupid for a few hours helps prevent even one person from buying it, then it was worth my time.
