Author: Sarah J. Maas
In a land where magic has been banished and the king rules with an iron fist, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She goes, not to kill the king, but to win her own freedom. If she defeats the twenty-three opponents in competition, she will be released from prison to serve the Crown with the status of champion of the king-the king's assassin. Her name is Celaena Sardothien. The crown prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect you. But an evil halo roams the glass castle - and it's there to kill. As her competitors begin to die one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival and an unexpected journey to expose an evil before it destroys her world.
