Dark and Dangerous: Fantasy Novelist Sarah J Maas at MCM London Comic Con

SarahJMaasWhile most attention in the world of fantasy novels has been on George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series and its television adaptation, a new contender has entered the ring – Sarah J. Maas, a dedicated young adult fantasy author who has shot up to surprising heights of fame in only a few years.

Making an appearance at MCM London Comic Con, Maas is known for her popular Throne of Glass series, set in a unique, dark fantasy world that draws inspiration from, of all things, Cinderella – as well as writers like Tolkein and Garth Nix. The story was originally posted online, where it acquired a huge fan following, and the UK publishing house Bloomsbury then acquired the publishing rights to Maas’ story, which she has begun turning into a trilogy and beyond.

The latest entry of the Throne of Glass books starring the strong but flawed assassin Celaena Sardothien, Heir of Fire, was released last September, with the next, Queen of Shadows, due out this September.


ACourtOfThronesAndRosesWith her complex characters and the fresh, developed world in which her tales take place, Maas has good reason for becoming so famous, so quickly, and she’s only looking to get bigger in the burgeoning world of fantasy novels. She even has a completely new series, A Court of Thorns And Roses, which has just recently been released.

She will be at MCM London Comic Con doing signings at the following times and places:

Friday 22 May – MCM Signing Area, 4:00pm

Saturday 23 May – Bloomsbury stand, time TBC
