UK Cover Reveal & Extract: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.

If any of you missed out on the UK cover reveal for the highly anticipated Throne of Glass (Bloomsbury, August 2012) by Sarah J. Maas over on the Hooked on Books Facebook page yesterday, here it is again. 

This is one wicked cool cover, don't you think?




Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Release date: August 2012

*****

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 kings council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for three 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.
