"Readers seeking the political intrigue of Kristen Cashore's "Graceling" and its sequels or the deadly competition at the heart of "The Hunger Games" will find both in Maas's strong debut novel. . . . The verve and freshness of the narration make for a thrilling read." --"Publishers Weekly," starred review "A teenage assassin, a rebel princess, menacing gargoyles, supernatural portals and a glass castle prove to be as thrilling as they sound. . . .

Maas is a tale full of surprises and shadows, where deadly seeds are sown with the promise of more danger to come.
