MINP Jan #2: Secrets Hidden Within

Prompt: Mindmap – Explaining the themes

Book: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, fantasy,

This mindmap is explaining the themes of the book, Throne of Glass. In this book, young female assassin Celaena Sardothien is recruited by the prince to compete in a competition where all the notorious criminals compete to see who can be the King’s ‘Champion’. The winner gets freedom, money, and service for the king. Juggling the duties of being a Champion, Celaena finds herself tangled in problems that not only with the Captain of the Guard (Chaol Westfall) and the prince (Dorian Havilliard), but also a darkness that lurks in the shadows of the glass castle.

*WARNING: SPOILERS*

I hope that you took away not only the central themes of Throne of Glass, but also valuable life lessons that could really teach humanity a lesson. We should realise that books are not just for entertainment, but also for awareness. Awareness that confidence is the key to overcoming obstacles. Awareness that we shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. Awareness that freedom is granted to everyone on this planet. Awareness that females should be treated equally to men. Awareness that being first in the beginning doesn’t mean you’re first in the end. Awareness that we should not only read stories that will ignite our imagination, but read for the sake of humanity.
