Avis de l'équipe

Editors Select, November 2013 - I fell in love with Sarah Maas’ Throne of Glass series, because it completely and utterly transported me to another time and place. The story is focused around smart and sassy teen assassin Celaena Sardothien, who is pulled out of the slavery salt mines of Endovier and brought to the Crown Prince, who presents her with an interesting proposition. If she wins a competition to become the corrupt King’s royal assassin, she will win her freedom after serving the kingdom for three years. Throne of Glass has the competitive elements of The Hunger Games, the royal family dysfunction of Game of Thrones, which amounts to a truly captivating listen. —Sarah, Audible Editor

Description

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.
Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.
Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

Critiques

"Readers seeking the political intrigue of Kristen Cashore's Graceling and its sequels or the deadly competition at the heart of The Hunger Games will find both in Maas's strong debut novel. . . . The verve and freshness of the narration make for a thrilling read." ( Publishers Weekly, starred review)
"A teenage assassin, a rebel princess, menacing gargoyles, supernatural portals and a glass castle prove to be as thrilling as they sound. . . . Celaena is still just a teenager trying to forge her way, giving the story timelessness. This commingling of comedy, brutality and fantasy evokes a rich alternate universe with a spitfire young woman as its brightest star." ( Kirkus Reviews)
" Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas is a tale full of surprises and shadows, where deadly seeds are sown with the promise of more danger to come. A fascinating glimpse into the dark side of Cinderella." (Colleen Houck, NYT Bestselling author of the Tiger’s Curse series)
