The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas Book Summary

The twist of a knife. The birth of a legend.

Step into the world of the #1 bestselling Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas with this collection of prequel novellas.

Celaena Sardothien is her kingdom's most feared assassin. Though she works for the powerful Assassin's Guild and its scheming master, Arobynn Hamel, she yields to no one and trusts only her fellow killer-for-hire, Sam. But when Arobynn dispatches her on missions that take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, Celaena finds herself acting independently of his wishes and questioning her own allegiance.

If she hopes to escape Arobynn's clutches, Celaena will have to put her faith in her wits and her blade . . . knowing that if she fails, she'll lose not just a chance at freedom but her life.

The Assassin's Blade (Sarah J. Maas) Book Reviews

The Assassin’s BladeThis book was definitely worth the read and can be read as a stand alone. Though I predicted the would-be twists, I still found myself wanting to watch the events play out, and enjoyed doing so. The stories are well balanced and beautifully written. If I had to nitpick it would be that Celaena conveniently forgot the Mute Master telling her she’d always have a home in the desert, the insert-really-big-number moments feel like cop-outs for making fiscal decisions about this world, and the idea of Celaena being cornered because of her financial situation is undermined by the fact that she hasn’t exhausted all of her options, i.e. cutting costs, squeezing money out of her possessions, seeking other work etc especially when she considers it but chooses to do nothing, which is important since it drives the plot..Score: 4/5
