Bloomsbury buys last three Throne of Glass novels

Bloomsbury has acquired the world rights to the final three titles in Sarah J Maas’ Throne of Glass series.
 
The deal for books four, five and six was brokered by Tamar Rydzinski at the Laura Dail Literary Agency to Catherine Onder.
 
The series focuses on a heroic assassin, Celaena Sardothien. Books one and two, Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight, are already published and have recorded sales of 30,000 copies via Nielsen BookScan. Book three, Heir of Fire, will be released globally in September. Maas has also written five companion novellas to the Throne of Glass series being published in paperback as The Assassin’s Blade in March.
 
In the books to come, Celaena fulfils her destiny, saving the world while facing unspeakable evil, said Bloomsbury.
 
“Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass books have garnered a worldwide following, and I’m her biggest fan,” added Catherine Onder, editorial director of Bloomsbury Children’s in the US.

Maas is also writing a new series retelling the story of Beauty and the Beast, with the first novel, A Court of Thorns and Roses, released by Bloomsbury in the spring of 2015.
