Throne of Glass

Celaena is jail. No, more of a labor camp than jail. And though she hasn't managed to escape yet, her  notoriety as the deadliest assassin in the kingdom has proved true.

Celaena is released from jail by the prince so that she can compete in a competition and hopefully become the king's champion. Seeing this as her only way out, Celaena agrees, despite her obvious hatred for the King. But there is evil and a little bit of fantasy afoot in the competition and the King's castle.

This is clearly the only the first book about Celaena, as author Sarah J. Maas, leaves many questions unanswered, but allows her protagonist to forge friendships and more and readers will certainly be interested in the following books.

Read-a-likes: Anything by Kristin Cashore, and Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers.
