**About the Book**
 
Meet Celaena Sardothien.
Beautiful. Deadly.
Destined for greatness.
 
In the dark, filthy salt mines of Endovier, an eighteen-year-old girl is serving a life sentence. She is a trained assassin, the best of her kind, but she made a fatal mistake: she got caught.
 
Young Captain Westfall offers her a deal: her freedom in return for one huge sacrifice. Celaena must represent the prince in a to-the-death tournament—fighting the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. Live or die, Celaena will be free. Win or lose, she is about to discover her true destiny. But will her assassin’s heart be melted?
Throne of Glass has been out for a few years and I feel like I am the only person who still hadn't read it. So I decided to order the first three books and I am so glad I did. Why has it took me so long to pick this book up? I did receive an arc when it was first released but at the time I didn't read fantasy novels and I couldn't get into it. But I've came along way since then and fantasy is now one of my favourite genres.
