ACOTAR Cover Reveal

Last May 13, 2013, Sarah J. Maas announced on her livejournal blog that she officially sold another series - A Court of Thorns and Roses - to Bloomsbury, and now we finally have the cover! (The high-res cover anyway, the low-res ones were released a few days ago).

US Cover

UK Cover

There isn't much difference between the two covers except the placement of Sarah's name and the details on the left side of the book (at least, that's what I noticed! If you see more differences let us know!) I personally like the US cover just a tinsy-tiny bit more (though I love them both, RED IS MY COLOR!!)

Here are some things you'd probably like to know about ACOTAR:
  • A Court of Thorns and Roses (or ACOTAR) will be out May 5, 2015
  • It'll be a trilogy
  • Intended for a YA audience so hmmm smexy
  • As Sarah placed it; "there are several delicious dudes in this book."
ACOTAR'S Synopsis:
"When 19-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world. 
As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it ... or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever."
I'm so pumped for this series! I'd seriously read anything Sarah writes (god forbid, even her grocery lists!) What do you guys think of the cover and the prospect of the book?

Star in your own Throne of Glass Story

For the release of Crown of Midnight last 2013, the Bloomsbury team created a Throne of Glass story generator where YOU can star in your own ToG story. It's been tested (by me) and proven (also by me) that this generator-thing is absolute, absolute fun!!

There are four categories (or scenes) to choose from, all in all.

And in each category, you will be asked to fill in some information for your story, then the site will generate your story and by the wyrd, it's hilarious! On my first try, I filled it up with absolute random things like Bananas and tooth brushes and it came out comical!

Try it out now, simply click the button below!

Show Some Fan Pride With These Cool ToG Shirts

What better way to show Throne of Glass pride than wearing ToG-themed shirts?! 

Spreadshirt and Redbubble both having eye-catching, drool-worthy designs that would urge you to start saving money or to run to those websites ASAP and buy as much as you can! (I already ordered like around three, would've gotten four but I ran out of money).

Here are some of the designs:

If you're not really a shirt person, never fear!

THEY DON'T ONLY SELL SHIRTS BUT ALSO HOODIES! (All the designs from Redbubble have an option of being turned into a hoodie, tank top or shirt)

TANK TOPS, MUGS AND TOTE BAGS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE (from spreadshirt, just scroll down or check the next pages to find them)!

They've got a wider array of designs to choose from on their sites. If you do decide to buy, make sure to email us a picture or to tag (@throneglass) us so we can show them on the site!

History of the map in Throne of Glass

Have you ever wondered how the map in Throne of Glass came to be? Yeah, no? Well I haven't. When I saw Erilea's map in the book, I waved it off as one of those extras that authors or publishers deem necessary to add in a book.

But no! It actually has a story, and an interesting one at that.

How the Erilea Map came to be (from Sarah's livejournal):
Stick-figure sketches from me. yay!

"So, several years ago (god, I don’t even know how many, but it feels like ages ago, perhaps before I was even published), I was approached by a long-time fan about making a map for THRONE OF GLASS.

Her name was Kelly, and she lived in Israel (HOW COOL, RIGHT?!), she’d read the first three TOG books on FictionPress, and also had a penchant for making epic fantasy/Tolkien-esque maps. …And then she offered to make a map for me. For free. For fun.

Obviously, I FREAKED, and sent her the horrible, embarrassing, totally unrealistic map I’d drawn of Erilea (the world of THRONE OF GLASS). A few weeks later, she sent me back a map that BLEW MY MIND. It was elegant and beautiful and made my world look cool and epic and—basically, it was everything I’d dreamed it’d be.

Flash forward a few years—to this past winter/spring, actually. I got an email from Bloomsbury, asking if I had a map (however vague/awful it might be) of the world of THRONE OF GLASS that they could send to a map designer/artist (they were in the process of looking for one).

My response? “OH HELL YES I HAVE A MAP THAT YOU COULD SHOW A DESIGNER.” (Obviously, I answered a bit more gracefully than that.)

So, I sent them the map that Kelly had drawn.

And they were so impressed and amazed by Kelly’s map that they wrote back, asking if I thought Kelly might be interested in designing the official map for the book.

Anddd I basically told them that if it were possible to hire Kelly, then having a FictionPress fan design the map for THRONE OF GLASS would be the coolest thing EVER."

-- THE END --

Join The Team: Be A Contributor On Our Site!

Hello! We're looking for contributors and account managers! It's becoming a tad hard keeping up with all the affairs in the Throne of Glass fandom, whilst handling other ToG social fan accounts simultaenously. It's also really lonely doing it alone. [insert sad face] Though yes, I've had help from a few people along the way, they're long gone by now and their empty seats are just begging to be taken!

**NOTE: If you wish to promote your own social media platforms using ours then we are absolutely okay with it for as long as you do not spam our viewers/followers. More on this later on… 


You'll be doubling as a news reporter as well as a journalist! [fun!] It'll be your job to stay up-to-date on what's happening in the Throne of Glass world (release dates, snippets, tours, news, updates from the author etc.) and post about it on this site! 

You won't be confined to news only of course. You are free to post about anything relating to Throne of Glass (kindly run it through the admins first though), like dream casts, survival guides, DIYs and more!

What we're looking for (not required):
  • Someone with blogging experience. I'd personally really appreciate someone who knows the basics on handling a blog (how to post, labelling, etc.). However, your blogging experience or lack thereof will not restrict us from choosing or denying you. We accept new bloggers, old bloggers and even people looking to start blogging! 
  • Speaks (or knows) fluent english. This site's key language is English, most of its readers are accustomed to English and those that do not have the language as their mother tongue can fairly understand it for it is the universal language. English does not need to be your vernacular (it's not mine either) but a certain fluency is required in order to compose posts for we will be asking that they be written in English. 
Twitter Account Manager/s

You are expected to manage our twitter account. It is desirable that you post only about Throne of Glass and/or the author, it's characters and anything relating to its world. 

What we're looking for (not required):
  • Someone with Twitter experience. Similar to that of the requirements for contributor, I would really, really appreciate it if you've had somewhat of an experience with handling twitter but it does not limit me from accepting or declining. You do not need to own a twitter account to sign up for the position. 
Instagram Account Manager/s

Like that of the role of a Twitter account manager, you'll be handling our Instagram account, preferably posting mostly edits like such;

or practically anything related to Throne of Glass (by the Wyrd, I've said this so many times, I'm sorry! hahaha). There are further details to handling our Instagram account but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

What we're looking for (not required but will play a role in our decision): 
  • Someone with basic editing skills. We are not looking for a pro, just someone we can leave the to account knowing she/he will be able to keep it's aesthetics intact. 
  • Someone with knowledge on using Instagram. It's not fairly hard to learn and would be great fun to work your way around discovering Instagram (if you haven't already) but again, as mentioned, not having to teach someone the ropes would be a great plus. 

Tumblr Blog Manager/s

Our Tumblr blog manager's responsibility is to keep maintenance of the blog, he/she will be expected to keep it active by posting/reblogging stuff about Throne of Glass, the author etc. (you know the drill). You're going to yada yada yada, it's the same as the role as that of a Twitter/Instagram account manager, except the platform will be Tumblr.

What we're looking for (this is required):
  • Someone with a Tumblr account. Tumblr, unlike Instagram or Twitter, is not that easy to figure out without some form of background knowledge. I would be happy to help out anyone wanting to explore this newfound territory; however, I am still exploring it myself and am not the best teacher. (I might end up teaching you the wrong thing).
  • Someone with basic editing skills
**NOTE: … about the promoting, we do not mind if you occasionally give your blog/account a shootout through ours, it is the least we can do for your help.

Dream Cast: Throne of Glass (The Big Three)

There are no confirmed announcements from Sarah J. Maas of movie rights being sold, but with the growing popularity and fan base of this fantastic series, it wouldn't be a big leap if it did get pegged for a movie sometime in the future.

In the meantime, let's get our sights set on some potential castings… We will, however, only be discussing Celaena, Chaol & Dorian (or the Big Three as I like to call them) in this post, the other minor characters will be posted next time (preferably after Heir of Fire is released).

DISCLAIMER: These castings are not official, I've gathered the cast from opinions of fans all over the internet (including my own) and will be credited accordingly.


Drew Roy

He definitely has the potential, unfortunately (in my opinion), he seems to be missing the Dorian's regal air, but, [taps chin] I guess he can act his way through that, he's got a promising acting career anyway.

Brenton Thwaites 

How do I say this kindly… NO.

Once upon a time, I used to cast Brenton Thwaites for everything and then I watched his movies… [snap] just like that, off he goes, out of my casting lists.

Joshua Anthony Brand

DEAR LORD, here we go again.
This guy is in every casting list with a dark-haired male like; 

  • Augustus Waters (The Fault in our Stars by John Green)
  • William Herondale (The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare)
  • Four (Divergent by Veronica Roth)
  • and many, many MANY MORE. 

Joshua Anthony Brand legitimately looks like a prince and seems like a genuinely nice person but; He. Is. Not. An. Actor! (!!!!!!) He's a model, a model, which means, though yes he looks like the character, NO he cannot and will not be cast because his career lies in MODELLING not ACTING! (though I do admit, he looks delicious in that photo).

Besides, this is how he really looks like:

and this


Jeremy Irvine

Jeremy Irvine was introduced to me as a cast idea for Dorian Havilliard and well, frankly, I don't see it. Don't get me wrong, he's panty-dropping-sexy but you know who he resembles more? Chaol Westfall. He has a certain ruggedness that isn't present in Dorian but is definitely seen in Chaol.

Keegan Allen

Cast Idea: Mine / Picture Credit

It is awfully difficult thinking of a cast for Chaol because he's such a … out-of-the-box character! He's not your typical dark haired, gorgeous male with a killer bod, and I love that about him (even if it makes it impossible thinking of a cast).

Keegan Allen seems like a possible choice though I would't bet my money on it.


Claire Holt

Claire's definitely got the tough-chick vibe, what with her vampire roles and bad-ass persona, I'd cast her as Celaena any day!

Amanda Seyfried

Now, I've got nothing against Amanda Seyfried, but I can't see her portraying the role. She's a little bit too popular, if you know what I mean. Amanda's basically iconic in the film industry, what with her role in Mean Girls, Dear John, Les Miserables, and much, much more. I'd like a fresh face (or as fresh as we can get) playing Celaena. (fingers crossed!)

I'd still be ecstatic to have Amanda in the cast, though!

Tabrett Bethell

Cast Idea: mine / Picture Credit

Now this girl, I'm rooting for! She's got Celaena written all over her and she's not too famous or under experienced to take on the role! Fresh face, accurate looks, awesome acting skills! Geez, what more can I ask for?

Here's a movie poster of Tabrett from Legend of the Seeker:

That concludes our dream cast for the big three!

Do you guys have any suggestions for castings? (ESPECIALLY FOR CHAOL!!) Leave your thoughts and cast ideas for not only the big three but other minor characters as well, because as I mentioned, we'll be posting a cast list for them pretty soon too!
