Celaena Sardothien is Adarlan’s most feared assassin. As part of the Assassin’s Guild, her allegiance is to her master, Arobynn Hamel, yet Celaena listens to no one and trusts only her fellow killer-for-hire, Sam. In these action-packed novellas – together in one edition for the first time – Celaena embarks on five daring missions. They take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, where she fights to liberate slaves and seeks to avenge the tyrannous. But she is acting against Arobynn’s orders and could suffer an unimaginable punishment for such treachery. Will Celaena ever be truly free? Explore the dark underworld of this kick-ass heroine to find out.
I loved this book so much. It was a collection of 5 novellas that were so action-packed and gave up a better look at Celaena’s past. This book made me like Celaena so much more than I did when I read TOG. SJM wrote this book beautifully and it made me pumped to continue the series. We got to know Sam better and her last few months in the Assassin’s guild. I;m unsure if this book is going to spoil anything for me as I move on to Crown of Midnight, but I believe had I not read it, it would have taken me much longer to continue this series. Overall, this book was great.
Rating: 5/5 stars
