I enjoyed Throne of Glass. Not loved it; I found the world-building lacking and the characters boring, with a lot of “she is the greatest assassin in the world!!!!!” without much actual assassinating. Not to mention the unnecessary love triangle (for which I have a particular distaste). But I have read the sequels. This series grows – it grows so well with each installment – and this book, while underwhelming, does serve as a good dip of the toes into Sarah J Maas' writing. I highly recommend it to any fan of YA fantasy – and make sure to continue with Crown of Midnight!
