Reading the blurb, Throne of Glass sounded like an assassin book with a little bit of mystery mixed in. In reality, the only word that I could use to describe it is “fluff”. It’s not that I have never read a “fluffy” book, because some of my previous favorite books are really “fluffy” *cough* The Drake Chronicles series *cough*. The problem with Throne of Glass is that while other “fluffy” books that I’ve read made me laugh, Throne of Glass didn’t even get a giggle out me.
Building on that point, Throne of Glass didn’t really make me feel anything. During some “intense” situations I wasn’t even moderately concerned for Celaena’s safety. I just wasn’t really hooked.
Another problem that I had with Throne of Glass was the love triangle. I didn’t like both of the love interests, and the love triangle had me groaning after every chapter. One night the love triangle had my so frustrated that I wrote on the white board behind my bed “No geometric shapes of love”.
Overall I give Throne of Glass 3 stars because even though I have many complaints, I ultimately found it entertaining and I will be reading the next book in the series (eventually).
