Review | Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Hooray and huzzah! I’ve finally read Throne of Glass and wasn’t disappointed. 3.5/5 stars.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

I’m making myself write this before moving onto the next book in the series, which I will be doing asap. I enjoyed spending time with the characters of the first book and want to know what happens next. And I don’t feel like a need a rest, like I did after The Knife of Never Letting Go.

The world building here is impressive, although I thought more explanation of the magical shenanigans would have been helpful. There is also some “foreign terms fatigue”, which many first installments seem to suffer from. Understandably, the author needs to introduce us to the main places and people in her world, but perhaps there is some way to do this to make them easier to remember? There were a few points where I thought, “Who’s that again?” and “Where’s that and why do we care?” And that was reading the book in 2 or 3 sittings and I have quite a good short-term memory!

Wait! There’s more. Click for the rest of the review!
