Book cover: “Throne of Glass” by Sarah J. Maas (Bloomsbury, 2012); audiobook read by Elizabeth Evans (Bloomsbury, 2021)

Maas empowers her protagonist only to lose her in paint-by-numbers world-building, a sputtering plot and—most egregiously—a Bermuda love-triangle drawn and redrawn with the mutability (and consequence) of an open-ended rock, paper, scissors game. A readable enough debut but majorly overhyped.
