Book Review: Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J. Maas

Throne of Glass

"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?"

My Review: 
Since i start my bookstagram a few months ago i always see great reviews about this series so i decided that it would be a great way to start my 2018 reading year. 

This is the first book in the Throne of Glass series and it was a little different than what i was expecting from the blurb, not in a bad way, i was thinking it will be a action book based on a competition but really the competition although have a big part in the plot line are not the center of the book and although there is action in this book there is also a little romance, palatial intrigues and a lot of investigation regarding some mystery evil that is haunting everyone. 

The writing style is simple and at the same time captivating and one could not put the book down since the beginning. The main character's are lovable and we get involved in their lives so much that we end up suffering and felling all the emotions they fell. I have to say that my top 3 are Calaena, Chaol and Nehemia, but i still could not decide who i want Calaena to end up with. 

I gave this book 4.3 out of 5*, i'm so glad i start this series and that i discover this amazing books to read during this year. I will order the next one in my January book haul because i'm so curious to know what will happen next.
