In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king’s champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien.The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass–and it’s there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena’s fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.
1. Did you read The Assassin’s Blade? If so, do you think it enhanced your reading of Throne of Glass? If you haven’t, do you plan to go back and do so before continuing with the series?
I have not read the novellas. I most likely will. I just don’t know when. 🙂 I’m probably going to want to get as much of this world as I can. So…yea.
2. Who do you think is behind the Champions murders?
I kind of want to say the Crown Prince. But I have no idea.
3. Thus far, what are some of your favorite scenes from Throne of Glass?
I love the conversations between Celaena and Chaol. Whether they are bantering or actually friendly. I just think that they meld so well together! And I love reading about them. However, Dorian has some pretty sweet scenes, too. Ugh, I don’t know. I just know that I already love this book!
4. Have you tried sticking to Sarah’s pronunciations or did you make up your own way to say all these names?
Surprisingly, I’ve been sticking with Sarah’s pronunciations. It’s not hard considering half the time I’m listening to the audiobook. It’s just funny when I go back to the paperback, some of the names sound much different than they look. 🙂
5. Is this the first time you’ve read Thron of Glass? Were you like Andrea and Jessica and completely unsure as to why you waited so long to read it? Or, if you reread it for the Read Along, did your reading experience change from the first time?
This is the first time. And I’m most definitely like Andrea and Jessica and completely unsure of why the hell I didn’t read this sooner. Granted I only bought the book back in September. But still, even that is too long!
6. Okay, let’s just get into this: As of this moment, who are you more fond of–Chaol or Dorian?
I’m definitely way more fond of Chaol! 🙂 I like Dorian, but I prefer Chaol all the way!
7. What do you think about Princess Nehemia and her friendship with Celaena? Are you a fan, or are you giving the princess a side-eye?
To be honest, I’m thinking that I am really liking her and I’m hoping she doesn’t let me down.
8. How are we liking Nox? Do you think he’ll end up as someone to count on in the future, or should we not trust him?
I haven’t made up my mind about Nox yet.
9. The writing! Are you loving Sarah’s writing as much as I am? Because seriously–it is so gorgeous.
Actually, I am in love with the writing. I think that it is beautifully done!
10. Do you have any predictions for the rest of the book? Anyone finding out Lady Lillian’s real identity? Betrayals? More friendships? (If you’ve already read the other half, skipping this one would probably be best. Ha.)
I think some kind of betrayal is going to happen, I’m just not sure who from.
