This review is from: Throne of Glass (Paperback)
Celaena Sardothien is officially my favourite assassin. I wanted to read this because practically every time I saw someone's list of "YA Hardcore Heroines" or something similar she'd be on it. So I'd know every heroine on that list about from Celaena, and so I just had to read it. Obviously.
Let me just tell you that I love the cover. So much. It's quite different from the normal YA book covers I see with either something abstract on them or a photograph of some model posing as a character. Plus I'm also in love with the title.
I don't know why, but I kind of thought Celaena was going to be a brunette. Maybe it'e because I'm so used to nearly every tough protagonist having brown hair. I don't know. I just had this preconceived image in my head of another brunette. So I was kind of surprised when I found out that "it was her golden hair that caught the attention of most". That was probably just me though.
As cliché as love triangles sometimes are, I have a thing for them. In Throne of Glass Maas introduces Prince Dorian (a.k.a Crown Prince of Adarlan) and Chaol (a.k.a Captain Westfall). I don't feel like telling you guys too much about either of them because I honestly don't want to ruin your thoughts on either of them, but I can say that I don't think I can pick one over the other.
Even if you think Throne of Glass isn't your 'type', trust me, it's your 'type'.
4/5 stars - I can't wait to start the next one.
"Still, the image haunted his dreams throughout the night: a lovely girl gazing at the stars, and the stars who gazed back."
