If you love fantasies, magic, action, with a twist of romance, a throne of glass is the right book for you. It is about a young woman, Celaena Sardothien, who is Adarlan's best assassin. She was serving in a prison camp until she was dragged from there to the king's castle, to compete against other thieves, mercenaries, or assassins to become the king's champion. However, dark things are happening within the castle walls and Celaena must find a way to stop it, and win the competition. This book is so addicting and magnificently written.
