    • Abstract:
      Summary: From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil. Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances -- not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart. Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena's world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie ... and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.

Booklist Reviews 2013 August #1

Now that Celaena Sardothian is safely ensconced as the king's assassin, after Throne of Glass (2012), she's begun to consider the true price of her freedom. Tasked with killing her tyrant king's enemies, Celaena has a tricky balance to strike: proving her loyalty and preserving her life, and trusting the growing voices decrying the king's power-hungry schemes. But that balance crumbles with an unexpected death and a frenzied search for both the killer and the secrets that murder was meant to hide. Meanwhile, Celaena finds herself in the midst of a steamy love triangle, with jealous glares flying almost as fast as her own daggers. There's a lot to like in Maas' latest—magic, witches, betrayal, love, page-flipping action—and it's balanced by an equally tantalizing secret: Who is Celaena, and what is she hiding? It's probably best to start at the beginning of the series, and fans will be satisfied not only by the intricate plot, dishy romance, and rich world building but they will be thrilled by the prospect of deepening adventures in the next volume. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Author tours, conference appearances, social-media campaigns, global marketing: this up-and-coming author will be making the rounds. Expect her large online fan base to follow.

As the King's Champion, Celaena must assassinate anyone the king chooses, but she undermines his rule--and stays alive--by faking her targets' deaths. Secrets abound in this epic fantasy's second volume, and rebel activity, the king's nefarious plans, a murder mystery, a love triangle, and figuring out whom to trust keep the bad-ass heroine busy and readers engaged through the final reveal.
