The following is an honest review of Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas and my suggested age rating.
Synopsis of Throne of Glass
Calaena Sardothien is a deadly assassin, raised to be feared. One day, she is summoned to the castle of glass to win her freedom and ticket out of prison. If she defeats twenty three other skilled killers, she will earn her place as the king’s champion. Suddenly Calaena discovers an evil lurking in the palace, as contestants begin dying left and right, she must secure allies to destroy the darkness before it kills her too.
Review of Throne of Glass
I have heard about this book for years, like I’m sure everyone else has. I was in the mood for some fantasy and found this in my mom’s room and thought why not haha. Now I understand the hype.
Much like most YA, there is a bit of insta love, the characters are kinda immature, but I love Maas’ writing style and world-building. I feel like the problem with people and reading YA fantasy is that they forget it’s just that, YA fantasy. You can’t expect a YA fantasy to be like adult fantasy with tons of complex magic systems and world building.
I really enjoyed the aspect of the trials and wish we would’ve got more of them. Also, I am extremely fascinated by the magic system and all the aspects of it. Currently, I’m on book 4 Queen of Shadows and feel like Calaena has grown as a character a lot, so if that is a concern, now you know.
Age Rating of Throne of Glass
I am giving Throne of Glass an Age Rating of 13-14 and up, this book contains lots of violence, gore, romance, and some mild language.
