The Silent Assassins of the Red Desert aren’t much for conversation, and Celaena Sardothien wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s not there to chatter, she’s there to hone her craft as the world’s most feared killer for hire. When the quiet is shattered by forces who want to destroy the Silent Assassins, Celaena must find a way to stop them, or she’ll be lucky to leave the desert alive.
I didn’t know if I wanted to read the Throne of Glass novellas. I asked Kayla to recommend me just one to see if I wanted to read them and she recommended this novella.
OMG. THIS NOVELLA WAS AMAZING. I was fangirling the entire time. I’ve also found a new book boyfriend. A new one. Yes, you read that right, a new one. His name is Ilias and he is the master’s son. I really really want him to show up somewhere in the ToG series. Is it horrible I want this love triangle or square or whatever to become more complicated? Probably, but I don’t care.
I really didn’t see Ansel’s betrayal coming at all. Towards the end I did get suspicious, but I couldn’t believe it. What I did believe was that the master knew. He seemed like the type of guy that would let things happen. Gosh I love him for giving Celaena the money to buy her freedom. Dang.
Overall, I absolutely freaking love it! I have a feeling I will be buying the complete novella bind up soon…
