Waiting on Wednesday (8): Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we showcase upcoming releases we are anticipating.

THRONE OF GLASS by SARAH J. MAAS
Release Date: August 7, 2012
No Cover Art Available at this time

Goodreads Synopsis: 
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.

Why I'm waiting on this:
Yeah, I know there's no cover but who cares?! This book sounds fascinating! I could've waited till the cover art came out but I just recently read her novella The Assassin and the Pirate Lord (review coming soon) and WOW! If the book is anything like that novella I'm so gonna love it! Besides, she's an assassin. That's pretty much an automatic win. And this captain of the guard sounds intriguing too ;) 

So what are y'all waiting on this fine Wednesday? Be sure to let me know in the comments so I can add more awesome books to my always growing TBR :D 

All the best ♥

    1. Actually, when I first saw it on Netgalley I loooooved it! The girl was perfect! But now its kinda plain and just has the name on it. I guess the cover wasn't 100% yet? I know how you feel!!! Idk, but I'm practically begging Netgalley to give it to me!! Good luck! *fingers crossed*

      All the best ♥
