Throne of Glass

Author  Sarah J. Maas
Series  Throne of Glass
Date Released  2 August 2012
Rating ★★★★☆

Falling back to another favorite – Throne of Glass by the amazing Sarah J. Maas. Many people, it seems, have read either A Court of Thorns and Roses or Throne of Glass, and in my opinion, both deserve to be thoroughly enjoyed. Side note: I’ll be posting every other day for now.

Quick intro: Celaena Sardothien, formerly the most well-known (but not seen) assassin in the empire of Adarlan, has spent the last year as a slave in the salt mines of Endovier, where most survive only months, as punishment for her crimes. The Captain of the Guard, Chaol Westfall, retrieves Celaena from the mines to be Prince Dorian’s champion in a bloody competition to become the King’s Champion (the fighter that does the dirty work for the kingdom’s leader). While she spends time in the palace, under an assumed name (no one knows a teenage girl was the country’s most feared assassin), she investigates the origins of mutilated bodies found in the castle.

Celaena was born in Terrasen, but about a decade ago, the king of Adarlan invaded Terrasen, burned its legendary libraries, killed its royal family, and enslaved many of the common people. Celaena must fight for her freedom from Endovier but winning also means serving the king who broke her homeland.

A Court of Mist and Fury

Author Sarah J. Maas
Series A Court of Thorns and Roses
Date Released 3 May 2016
Rating ★★★★★

After writing yesterday’s review of A Court of Thorns and Roses, I realized that Wednesday and Thursday, when I reread ACOTAR, which has a red, white, and black cover, I wore a red shirt and red shoes, and yesterday, when I reread A Court of Mist and Fury, which, as you can see, has a blue, white, and black cover, I wore a black and white shirt and blue rainboots. Honestly, completely accidentally 😏

Quick intro: Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, where she has trouble adjusting, leading to some relationship issues with High Lord #1, leading to some quality time with my favorite character, Rhysand, High Lord of the Night Court, as he rescues her from a new kind of prison, using the Fae bargain Feyre made during Amarantha’s Reign of Terror. Upon spending more time at the Night Court, Feyre makes friends, learns to enjoy life again, and finds out some interesting things about her new self. CAUTION: There are total Feysand feels events in this book (of course I ship it).

I’m back!

Currently, I’m re-reading A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas (review on that to come), so I thought I’d review the first book in the series to start this off.

Quick intro: Feyre is a nineteen-year-old human, living on a small island, on the other side of a wall from the Fae world of Prythian, until she does some things that take her over the wall and into a war she hadn’t known existed. She falls in love (a little bit of a Beauty and the Beast thing) and gets herself into trouble and there’s a big curse and a super-evil-queen-type thing.
