3.0 out of 5 stars Nice story, but nice wasn't good enough!!, 31 Aug. 2012

This review is from: Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Great, a book with a Heroine that had withstood time in the salt mines when others would have broken, a heroine that is a trained assassin, not just any trained assassin but the most infamous trained female assassin. She had swagger, she had attitude, she was the best and she knew it, and yet she lost her first combat to a royal guard, OK the Captain of the Royal Guard but even so! She fell for the oldest trick in the book and drank poison, she quaked in the presence of the King who had caused her people so much harm and refused a chance to escape when it presented itself.

I loved the concept, I enjoyed the writing style, I just thought the character had an over inflated opinion of herself which her actions did not justify. The relationships between the main characters were not developed in an adult way, I am not suggesting anything erotic should have been written, but after months in the gorgeous Princes company, and he being a lady's man, and she being so very attracted to him and he to her, come on, just a kiss? I know it was fictional but there is no need to be condescending, we would have understood! Anyway, a nice book, and a great idea, but a wimp out on exploring the true character of an assassin that had suffered so much to gain so little, Freedom was always within her own hands, not by the grace of her enemies.
