This is a series that I started reading and never got around to finishing. There’s a lot of hype surrounding it so that makes me nervous. How are you guys with over hyped books? Do you usually enjoy them? Or are you like me and tend to get very, very disappointed and tumble down into a big old book slump? Sound familiar? I know these last couple months have been a struggle for me because I’m getting tired of reading these books that everyone claims are wonderful only to find out it’s the same book we’ve seen 10 times before. I’m hoping this series doesn’t end up like that for me!

Here we have Celeana and Chaol from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. It was drawn by may12324 on DeviantArt. My favourite part of this piece is the dress! She did such a great job on it! That’s also really similar to how I pictured Chaol so I was really impressed with that. This is a digital drawing but it almost looks like it was hand drawn. I love the sketchy elements to it but then I love how there’s still lots of details in her hair and dress. Such a great piece!
About Throne of Glass
After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.
Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her… but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.
Then one of the other contestants turns up dead… quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.
“I’m sure you dont,” Chaol said dryly, though he met her stare.
