Throne of Glass series

Sarah J. Maas


MAAS, Sarah J. The Throne of Glass series: Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, Queen of Shadows, Empire of Storms, Tower of Dawn, Kingdom of Ash. New York: Bloomsbury, 2012-18. Together, seven volumes. Octavo, original boards, original dust jackets. $2500.

First editions of the seven books in Maas' enormously popular Throne of Glass series, following the exploits of teenage assassin Celaena Sardothien in the corrupt kingdom of the tyrannical ruler, the King of Adarlan.

"Woven in the vein of a Tolkien fantasy, Celaena's world is one where magic is outlawed and power is snatched through greed and genocide. The third-person narrative allows frequent insight into multiple characters (heroes and villains alike) but never fully shifts its focus from the confident yet conflicted Celaena… This commingling of comedy, brutality and fantasy evokes a rich alternate universe with a spitfire young woman as its brightest star" (Kirkus Reviews, regarding Throne of Glass). "An epic fantasy readers will immerse themselves in and never want to leave" (Kirkus, regarding the second volume, Crown of Midnight). Time Magazine described the final novel in the series, Kingdom of Ash, as "a worthy finale to one of the best fantasy book series of the past decade." "Not only has [Maas] single-handedly created universes for her three best-selling fantasy series (including the Throne of Glass juggernaut, which just hit the children's series [bestseller] list for its 50th week), Maas is also developing Court of Thorns and Roses for Hulu" (New York Times). This Throne of Glass series was also optioned by Hulu, though development has reportedly been delayed for the present. All volumes with complete number lines on copyright pages; Throne of Glass dust jacket later issue, with a more uniform illustration on the front panel and mentioning the next two books in the series. The last three volumes in the series (Empire of Storms, Tower of Dawn, Kingdom of Ash) are first trade editions, issued simultaneously with signed limited editions as the series grew in popularity. Publisher's promotional cards laid into Volume I.

A few boards with faint smudges or minor bumps, generally about-fine; dust jackets fine. Quite scarce in hardcover and dust jackets.
