I don’t even know where to start with this review. I feel like nothing I say will get across just how awesome Throne of Glass was and how much I loved it. I seriously loved it. It was so good. I have been seeing great reviews about Throne of Glass on other book blogs since its release in August of 2012. Despite all the hype, I just didn’t think that I would like it. I’m not a high fantasy type of person and that kind of book doesn’t compel me to read it, but I decided to give this a try anyways.
The best, best thing about Throne of Glass were the characters. That, to me, is the most important thing in any book. The character development in this book was spectacular. Yes, spectacular. I loved the characters, even the bad ones, from the beginning up until the very end. They were so well described and I felt like I got who they were and could imagine their lives outside of the story.
The main character, Caelina, was amazing. She was so cool and I loved that she was an assassin. I was actually really happy that this book began after being captured and sent to Endovier, which was basically like sentencing her to death. I don’t think I would have been as drawn to the story if the book had begun with her killing people.
The world building was yet another thing that Sarah J. Maas did right. I was so intrigued by the glass castle and all of her descriptions had me feeling like I was right there with Caelina (the main character).
OMG, guys… Chaol. I don’t even know how to say this, but I loved him. I wanted Caelina and him to get together since the very beginning. Yeah, he was pretty awesome.
I don’t really have much else to say, just go read this book if you haven’t already! I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll keep it short.
Oh, this is a little random, but Throne of Glass had one of the most epic fights I’ve ever read in a book. It was amazing, but it also crushed me and make me want to start crying! It was so intense. I pretty much looked like this: (LOL)
