Book Review: Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas. Those who love fast paced adventure, magic, and a little bit of romance will love this book. It is angled mostly towards young adults, but anyone can pick up the book and enjoy it.
Other books similar to this one include The Hunger Games, Cinder, The Young Elites, The Red Queen, and Snow Like Ashes. The Throne of Glass centers around the main character Celaena Sardothien, a notorious assassin. After being captured, the only way to earn her freedom is to fight as the King’s Champion in an intense competition. Celaena has to decide who to trust and who to stay away from in an endless struggle between wrong and right. But, a dark magic is lurking inside the castle alongside the competition, and her fight for freedom becomes a fight to survive.
She must find the source of the darkness and destroy it, before it consumes her world.Celaena Sardothien is a no nonsense skilled assassin who has been feared for most of her life. She is tough, sharp witted, and sharp tongued, and has no problem taking care of herself. She lives life on the edge, and is always prepared to dominate any situation. Celaena follows her morals, even in the face of hardships. She is the type of heroine who doesn’t need to remind anyone of her true strengths. She will do whatever it takes to protect those she loves, and will go to incredible lengths to save the world she knows.
If Celaena were to apply to college, she would apply to West Point. “To educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, Country and prepared for a career of professional excellence and service to the Nation as an officer in the United States Army.” I selected West Point for Celaena because it is the type of school that she would want to attend. She trained for most of her life as an assassin, and would enjoy putting her skills to use in a place where she could do good. Although, I think she would have a problem with the strict rules and regulations, but on a spur of the moment decision, I could see her deciding that she wanted to go to a military academy. The school also has a very good reputation, which would be an important factor in her decision. Also, the boarding and admission is free, since you would be going directly into the army afterwards. This would only strengthen Celaena’s resolve to go there. I think West Point would be a stronger fit than any other college.
