Celaena Sardothien is Adarlan’s most feared assassin. As part of the Assassin’s Guild, she’s sworn to her master, Arobynn Hamel, yet Celaena listens to no one and trusts only her fellow killer for hire, Sam.
In these action-packed prequel novellas to Throne of Glass, Celaena embarks on five daring missions. They take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, where she fights to liberate slaves and avenge tyranny. But by acting on her own terms, will Celaena truly free herself from her master, or will she suffer an unimaginable punishment for such treachery?
This bind-up features all four of the previously published e-novellas along with a story now available in the US for the first time, The Assassin and the Healer.
This is the second time that I read this book and still really enjoy this collection of stories. I thought that even thought this is five different stories it basically tells one complete story that really does give you so much history about our lead character. This collection of stories was a super fast pace read and one that really taught us so much about our lead. I think my favorite story was def the assassin and the healer and also the last story. I def think that you must read this story for you really to understand this story and the characters.
