After really liking the first book in the series I wanted to keep on with the series so instantly went to amazon and bought the next book in the series. So what did I think of the sequel?
Celaena Sardothien, royal assassin, is the King of Adarlan’s deadliest weapon. She must win her freedom through his enemies’ blood – but she cannot bear to kill for the crown. And every death Celaena fakes, every lie she tells, put those she loves at risk.
Torn between her two protectors – a captain and a prince – and battling a dark force far greater than the king, Celaena must decide what she will fight for: her liberty, her heart or the fate of a kingdom…

My only problem from the first book was that it took too long to get started but in a longer series this is normally the case. However, with book two we know the world slightly has been introduced to the main characters and know their lives. Which for me makes this book better than the first instantly, you get thrown into the action almost immediately which makes you want to get through the pages as quickly as possible in order to see who wins the fight.
At the end of Throne of Glass Celaena decides to cut things off before they start with Dorian which I was disappointed by even though it would of been a predictable thing to happen – the prince falling in love with someone he shouted – but that doesn’t mean Celaena has stopped her feelings for another character and to be honest I don’t really like this shipping, for me it doesn’t make much sense and she has so much more in common with Dorian but there is still another 5 books in the series so things might change.
My favourite part of the whole book has got to be when Celaena goes into Assassin mode, when she is in this mode then she only has one thing on her mind and that is to kill and reading about this is amazing and actually makes me like Calaena a whole lot more. This is because I want to know more about her backstory and what makes her go into this mode. Yes, you do get to find a little bit of her backstory near the end of the book but that still wasn’t enough for me and because it wasn’t enough for me it means I am going to be spending even more money to continue the series.
This is the sequel that I wanted as it made me like characters more, makes me want to know about their past lives and just how far they are all willing to go in order to save a friend. I am looking forward to reading Heir of Fire
