When magic has gone from the world, and a vicious king rules from his throne of glass, an assassin comes to the castle. She does not come to kill, but to win her freedom. If she can defeat twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition to find the greatest assassin in the land, she will become the King's Champion and be released from prison.
Her name is Celaena Sardothien.
The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her.
And a princess from a foreign land will become the one thing Celaena never thought she'd have again: a friend.
But something evil dwells in the castle—and it's there to kill. When her competitors start dying, horribly, one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival—and a desperate quest to root out the source of the evil before it destroys her world.

Now that a lot more of the series is out and I now own all of those I thought it would be a good time to catch up with this series. This series has been one of my most anticipated series for a very long time, in fact probably since the first book came out in 2013! The last time I through this series I got as far as Crown of Midnight, but only because that was the latest one out at the time!
I loved this the first time I read it and if it is possible I loved this even more the second time around! What I loved the most was the love triangle type situation going on between Celaena, the Prince and the Captain of the Guard. I liked how there was a lot of will they won't they with all characters, it was very hard to guess who Celaena would end up with. I have to say that I believe she made the right choice!
I really can't wait to read more of this series and see what comes next! I have a feeling that there are a lot of secrets and a lot more aspects to this world and characters to discover and that makes me really excited to continue... :-)
