ARC Giveaway: Throne of Glass

For my second BEA giveaway, I have for you the highly anticipated Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Mass (<—Rhymes with “Glass!”)!! When I first heard about this one I knew I would have to get my hands on it at BEA.  I LOVE assassin books! Especially ones with a strong female lead (think Grave Mercy!).  I’m super excited that I have an opportunity to give away this ARC to you guys! Please read the rules and enter using the rafflecopter form below.

Throne of Glass

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1) by Sarah J. Mass
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Children's
Release Date: August 7th 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.

  39. Thanks so much for the giveaway! I'm dying to read this book! Like Ryan who commented above, I've entered multiple giveaways for it and haven't won (yet!!), should I just order the darn thing and pay for it?! But my real question for this comment is, how long have you been blogging, and do you love it? How much time in an average week do you feel it takes for you to maintain?

    Thanks so much!
