Author Spotlight - Sarah J. Maas

So Sarah J. Maas has fast become one of my favourite authors. Her writing style is beautiful, gripping and believable. The characters she creates are phenomenal, as is the entire world she creates within the books.

I've yet to begin reading A Court of Thorns and Roses but I've read Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight and am half way through Heir of Fire.

I'll attempt to make this brief.

So the Throne of Glass saga is based on an eighteen year old girl, who just happens to be one of the, if not the best assassin in all of Adarlan. She has escaped Endovier, essentially a work pit designed to break the spirit and most likely the body of all those placed there. The girl, Celaena Sardothien, has now escaped the oven and has been thrust into the frying pan that is the job as the King's Assassin. Celaena isn't all she appears to be, she isn't just an assassin.

Basically, this series has all the action and romance you could ever want. (Swoons over Chaol. Yes, I do still like him)

Then A Court of Thorns and Roses is essentially a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. In this world killing one of the fairies means as a punishment you must go on live amongst them. This is what happens to Feyre... amongst other things.

Read all of these. That is your job from now.
