Meet Celaena Sardothien. Beautiful. Deadly. Destined for greatness. In the dark, filthy salt mines of Endovier, an eighteen-year-old girl is serving a life sentence. She is a trained assassin, the best of her kind, but she made a fatal mistake. She got caught. Young Captain Westfall offers her a deal: her freedom in return for one huge sacrifice. Celaena must represent the prince in a to-the-death tournament – fighting the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. Live or die, Celaena will be free. Win or lose, she is about to discover her true destiny. But will her assassin’s heart be melted?
I had heard many mixed reviews about this book, from the story to the universe and it’s alikening to A Court of Thorns and Roses, to the main character Calaena.
However, I personally found this extremely good. I loved Calaena as a character and also Choal and Dorian. I loved the concept of the story and where it led.
I’m particularly encouraged and excites to read the following books in the series and the accompanying novella.
Despite the mixed reviews I am really glad I read this for myself. One of my favourites.
Definitely worth a read:)
Thanks for reading.
