Books like “Harry Potter,” “The Hunger Games,” “Divergent,” “The Maze Runner” and “City of Bones” have captured the attention of teenagers for many years. Now, author Sarah J. Maas has created a completely new (first book published in 2012) and revolutionizing young adult fantasy series titled “Throne of Glass.” It will change the game. “Queen of Shadows,” the fourth book in the series, was released on September 1, debuting at number two on the New York Time’s best-selling list, a spot rightfully earned.

Sarah J. Maas has created a completely new and revolutionizing young adult fantasy series.”

— Caroline Bradbury

Lightly based on Cinderella, “Throne of Glass” follows Celaena Sardothien, a young assassin recently thrown into the Endovier labor camp for committing serious crimes that are revealed later in the series and in “The Assassin’s Blade,” a prequel. A year into her life sentence, Prince Dorian comes to free her in exchange for her entry in the King’s competition to become his personal assassin. The story unfolds from there in hundreds of pages filled with magic, feminism, romance, intensity and most profoundly, friendship.
For those who have read the series, you know that any description of the amazing world Maas has created doesn’t do it justice. The world-building and raw emotion that Maas puts into her writing is inspiring and makes everyone relate to Celaena in some way. In the most recent installment, fans have been torn on the plot twist concerning Celaena’s romantic relationships. Social media has been buzzing with opinions on Maas’ shocking decision and predictions of where the story will go next. The book was captivating in its entirety and isn’t predictable by any means. Some readers have devoured this novel in one sitting and are now suffering through the year-long wait for the fifth novel which is rumored to come out at the same time next fall.
