Maas’ Throne of Glass series started off as a story on FictionPress.com entitled Queen of Glass. Its success encouraged Bloomsbury to purchase it in 2010 with the addition of two sequel novels.The series follows assassin Celaena Sardothien. In the first book, Prince Dorian offers Celaena the opportunity to become his royal assassin and earn her freedom. Celaena must compete against thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire in order to secure the new position.
While the Mark Gordon Company has numerous successes under their belt – including “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice” – their only real interaction with fantasy, up until this point, has been their upcoming adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ The Silver Chair for the Narnia movie franchise.
