Best Way to Read the Throne of Glass Series

If you’ve been on BookTok for any length of time, you’ve undoubtedly heard of the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas.

Also, Hulu actually bought the rights to this series to make it into a TV show, so I am very much hoping that if this gets more traction we will one day see this TV series!

This is the first series that was written by Sarah J Maas, she later went on to write A Court of Thorns and Roses, which I am absolutely obsessed with. If you haven’t read that series yet, I highly recommend checking that out as well!

This is such a good book series. If you enjoy fantasy book series or you just want to read about a teenage assassin for hire, you will undoubtedly love this series. Lucky for you, the entire series is already published!

Summary of Throne of Glass Without Spoilers

Celaena Sardothien is an 18-year-old assassin who, for a chance at freedom, becomes Crown Prince Dorian’s champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. If she wins, she will have to serve as the deadliest assassin for the royals, but after four years she will get her freedom in return. During this competition, her fellow assassin contestants start turning up dead. Celaena Sardothien is on the hunt to figure out who the killer could be before they get to her too.

Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass Reading Order

Now, there is a lot of controversy surrounding the proper reading order of Throne of Glass, so I am going to give you two options chronological and then the way that most people recommend reading it.

Order of Publication

  1. The Assassin’s Blade
  2. Throne of Glass
  3. Crown of Midnight
  4. Heir of Fire
  5. Queen of Shadows
  6. Empire of Storms
  7. Tower of Dawn
  8. Kingdom of Ash

Reader’s Recommended Order

The one thing about this series is that everyone seems to read this series a different way. So, I am attempting to give you the most popular way to read this series which includes the tandem reading of Empire of Storms and Tower of Dawn.

The Assassin’s Blade includes all the prequel stories, but most people don’t suggest reading it at the beginning. For getting the most emotional engagement with the story, this is the recommended reading order.

  1. Throne of Glass
  2. Crown of Midnight
  3. The Assassin’s Blade
  4. Heir of Fire
  5. Queen of Shadows
  6. Empire of Storms*
  7. Tower of Dawn*
  8. Kingdom of Ash

*Read these together! They happen at the same time. Just act like it’s one book. Don’t stress.
