Celaena Sardothien owes her reputation to Arobynn Hamel. He gave her a home at the Assassins’ Guild and taught her the skills she needed to survive.
Arobynn’s enemies stretch far and wide – from Adarlan’s rooftops and its filthy dens, to remote islands and hostile deserts. Celaena is duty-bound to hunt them down. But behind her assignments lies a dark truth that will seal her fate – and cut her heart in two forever…
Explore the dark underworld of this kick-ass heroine and find out how the legend begins in the five page-turning prequel novellas to the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series.
To put my feelings in the simplest way possible – I am broken. Completely. Truly. Utterly. Broken.
I knew what was going to happen as I had already read the first four books in this series before reading the novellas… But I didn’t know that it was going to hit me as hard as it did. While reading the TOG novels, I was always okay with the mention of Sam (at least up until Queen of Shadows) as I guess I never knew him as a proper character. But then comes the first novella The Assassin and the Pirate Lord and I am already in love with him.
The novellas, as with the rest of Maas’ works are amazingly written and I love how they lead right up to the very beginning of Throne of Glass.
I cannot wait to read more works from Maas and her novels are some of my most anticipated releases of 2016.
