{Cover Reveal} THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J. Maas


Expected Publication: August 7th 2012
PublisherBloomsbury USA Children's
Hardcover416 pages

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men—thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the kings council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

My Thoughts: You know, I thought I saw this cover on NetGalley when this book was first up for requesting. I know I did, and yet they took it down. Weird. But I'm so siked to read this!! I requested for it on NG, and there's still no answer. (This was almost two months ago. :/) But I'm still hoping! I love the girl on the cover, she looks sweet and innocent yet deadly with that knife strapped to her bicep. ;P On NG, it said that this was a YA girl version of Game of Thrones. And that was the first thing that had be hooked to get it! This book sounds awesome and epic. I NEED THIS.
