To start at the end, I am planning to purchase the three e-book prequel novellas.  Just saying.

18 year old Celaena Sardothien, a renown assassin,  is plucked from the death camp by the Crown Prince.  She is to fight for the position of King’s Champion.  The same king that sent her to the death camp in the first place.  The Captain of the Guard doesn’t trust her but is sworn to protect her.  Magic is gone from the world, but magic seems to be killing the Champions.

A mystical queen from the long distant past tells Celaena to win the position of Champion and clear the menacing evil from the palace.  Who should she trust?  Why does everyone not appear as they are?  Celaena must win through, but at what cost to herself?  And what choice does she have?

The story runs fast-paced and twists and turns quite unexpectedly.  Early on, its evident that there will be more books.  No matter.  I still enjoyed this one tremendously.  I just have to pick up Book 2:  Crown of Glass (released in Fall 2013).

Highly Recommended:  Grades 6 & up
