Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    Starred review from June 18, 2012
    Readers seeking the political intrigue of Kristen Cashore’s Graceling and its sequels or the deadly competition at the heart of The Hunger Games will find both in Maas’s strong debut novel. Celaena Sardothien is considered the best assassin in Adarlan, and she has been condemned to the salt mines for her work. As the story opens, she is plucked from slow execution by the calculating crown prince, Dorian, to be his candidate for champion, competing against “hieves and assassins and warriors” to become an enforcer for the king. The stakes are freedom or death: win or return to the mines. Youthful captain Chaol is charged with preventing Celaena’s escape, and though she fantasizes about killing him on occasion, he becomes a far different target of her attention. This is not cuddly romance, but neither is it grim. Celaena is trained to murder, yet she hasn’t lost her taste for pretty dresses or good books, and a gleam of optimism tinges her outlook. Maas tends toward overdescription, but the verve and freshness of the narration make for a thrilling read. Ages 12–up. Agent: Tamar Rydzinski, Laura Dail Literary Agency.

  • A fan on Goodreads Having waited for a long time to see on Sarah's blog that this would be published, I almost started crying when I found out it would be—the only reason I didn't was that I had gone quite numb from excitement.
  • A fan on Goodreads It's not simply good, it's gorgeous and epic, and beautiful, and everything a book should be. Can't wait to get my hands on polished version.
  • A fan on Goodreads Epic, witty, and brilliantly plotted... I am one of the thousands of people who read this book on Fictionpress several years ago and fell in love with it, and I am counting down the days until it gets published.
  • A fan on Goodreads Magic fuses every word of this book together, and I found myself loving all the characters as I got to know them. This is a beautiful read
