Waiting on Wednesday: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Mass

 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It is an opportunity for us to show books we can't wait to get our hands on.

This week, I'm waiting for:


Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Release Date: August 7th, 2012
Publisher: Bloomsbury

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 kings 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.
I've been hoping to get my hands on this book since I first read about it. It sounds addicting. I wasn't approved on NetGalley for this one, but hopefully I'll be able to get my hands on it at BEA!

What are you waiting for this week?

  22. Thanks for stopping by our post earlier.

    Nice pick. I saw this on NG as well. Just wanted to let you know that the publicist over at Bloomsberry has changed and if you email them directly to introduce yourself and let them know that you want this book they will prolly approve you on NG for it as well as for future books. Hope that helps!

    You can email me if you need the new publicists email address.
