44 Best Throne Of Glass Quotes

Last Updated on July 15, 2020 by Scott M. Thomas

Throne Of Glass is a young adult novel series by Sarah J. Maas. Based on the journey of  Celaena Sardothien, a teenage executioner in a corrupt kingdom with an oppressive ruler.  She is characterized as skilled, arrogant, and humorous. The author ultimately designed Celaena as a highly capable character whose talents also form a basis for numerous faults. These are some of my preferred quotes from the Throne of Glass series that inspire and motivate you.
