Publisher's Summary

Bloomsbury presents The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas, read by Elizabeth Evans.

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 the Throne of Glass series, 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?

good series

I am enjoying the Throne of Glass series, and the Assassin's Blade gives some good background into the series. It is well written and well performed.

One of my Favorite Series

I adore the world and characters created. I love the build up and different adventures each book has. It is like Lord of the Rings meets Six of Crows meets Anita Blake. Strong female lead, dark urban atmosphere, with fantasy twists plus a massive adventure. I am a fan of the writing and al the plot twists. The book does a great job at bring forth emotional reactions.
