Lethal. Loyal. Legendary.

Enter the world of Throne of Glass with the first book in the #1 bestselling series by Sarah J. Maas.

In a land without magic, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She has no love for the vicious king who rules from his throne of glass, but she has not come to kill him. She has come to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three murderers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she will be released from prison to serve as the King's Champion.

Her name is Celaena Sardothien.

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. And a princess from a faraway country will befriend her. But something rotten dwells in the castle, and it's there to kill. When her competitors start dying mysteriously, one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival-and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.

Thrilling and fierce, Throne of Glass is the first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series that has captivated readers worldwide.


  • I need a movie ASAP

    By pajnstsalauj
    I read this book back when it was first published. Went back this past month to binge the whole series. Amazing characters development as you flip through book after book. New characters unlocked, new romances, brutal adventures, tragedies, and best of all, Celaena’s power development.
  • Nope.

    By CsheaC
    Waaaay worse than her more recent books, lacks the detail and compelling storyline that normally pulls you in. Do NOT recommend.

    celeana?? more like slayna <3 kale seems like he’s gonna be a problem… i sense it
  • One of my favorite reads!!

    By SHAY789*
    Sarah J. has an almost unfair talent to pull you into the worlds she creates. The storytelling, the force of emotions you feel, and the connections to the characters she instills; it’s nearly impossible to not fall in love with this book. You’ll only want to keep reading! The eagerness in wanting to find out what more she could tell in her stories is addicting. While the fantasy/magic element was slowly introduced, it’s paced perfectly. Knowing this is only the first book in the series, you’ll be eager to jump headfirst into the second in the series.
  • Very enjoyable

    By Lanae💋
    I read through this in less than a week. It kept me very engaged, will definitely read the next book.
  • I hope they make this a movie series

    By libzweiss
    I truly hope these books Turn into a movie or series. Like the next lord of the rings. Every book is so good! Such a great storyline with even richer characters. I’m sad I’m at the end of the serious. Definitely recommend times a thousand
  • it was a easy enjoyable read and reminded me of red queen which i loved when i was young

    By can we fly away
    cute little fantasy romance book and i actually liked the main character which is hard to do with a dangerous i dont trust anyone im so tortured and evil character. like she was actually a really likable character but i did hate damian like i didnt at first but i know shes going to end up with him and im mad abt it. it was overall a good balance of focus on characters/relationships and events separate from that
  • So incredibly fun!

    By Scouty12
    Can’t wait to dive into the next book in the series!
  • TOG

    By izzie6864865
    Read this after finishing the ACOTAR series because I love the SJM world so much!! This is very similar but more mystery/adventure and less romantic (still there but not the main focus) everyone says the 2nd and 3rd book of this series makes the slowness of the 1st worth it so I’m in it for the long haul!
  • A book I’ll quickly forget

    By Alahcs
    Story fell flat. Main character was really bizarre to me—perhaps not enough of her back story was given? I just could not piece her together properly throughout this whole book— she really made no sense to me. Actually, it’s not just the main character, a lot of the characters fell flat in the same way.
