Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Celaena is a trained assassin (why do I love books about female killing machines?) and she can win her freedom if she survives a competition to become the evil king's champion. She figures anything is better than the past year she has spent in the horrible death prison. And so she trains and competes and uses her wits and skills to fight her way to the top. Along the way, the Crown Prince falls for her, as well as the Captain of the Guard. Whoo-whoo, Celaena--you go, girl!
Sometimes I really, really need books like this. Next up? The sequel Crown of Midnight.
