The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas

“Life isn't easy, no matter where you are. You'll make choices you think are right, and then suffer for them.”
― Sarah J. Maas, The Assassin's Blade

Hi Everyone!

I can´t stop of smiling like a teenager in love while I am writing this post and I am just starting. The reason because I am so happy writing this review about this amazing book. This book is the The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas and this book contains five novells that are a prequel for the first book Throne of Glass that is the first book in the serie. Even when this is a prequel I recommend read this book after Throne of Glass and If you want wait until more late in the serie for read please read this book before Queen of Shadows that is the four book in the serie and I´ll be writing a review about that book later here in my blog and is not really complicated that are just my personal recommendations.

I already published the posts reviews about the first three books 

About this book

Contains all five novellas.

Celaena Sardothien is Adarlan's most feared assassin. As part of the Assassin's Guild, her allegiance is to her master, Arobynn Hamel, yet Celaena listens to no one and trusts only her fellow killer-for-hire, Sam. In these action-packed novellas - together in one edition for the first time - Celaena embarks on five daring missions. They take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, where she fights to liberate slaves and seeks to avenge the tyrannous. But she is acting against Arobynn's orders and could suffer an unimaginable punishment for such treachery. Will Celaena ever be truly free? Explore the dark underworld of this kick-ass heroine to find out.


If you want read my review spoilers free I want invite you to click here there is my review in Goodreads without any spoiler. I guess I read this book really late and I should read this book before. I read this book the last year and sincerely I am not sure why I thought in a moment that this book could not containt relevant information and I was in a big mistake. In this book we can see to a Celaena Sardothien when she is just a teenager but an amazing assasin and she has a great spirit. Probably the best part is see how she looks so incredible in a world dominated by men. She has to do the dirty work for her master and that is kill people because she is a trained assasin. But in that way she find a pirate lord and she manages to free many slaves. Due that she was horribly punished by her master and she was sent to the desert to train with silent assasins.

Now in her way to that dessert in that trip she finds a girl that works in a bar and when a group of bad men tried to take advantage from this girl she helped this girl and not only helped this girl she teached this girl how defend herself. And oh my God that was so amazing because in several books later I am going find how these acitons influenced so much the life of that girl. Before leaves the bar she leaves a note a bag with gold saying to that girl to follow her dreams, because that girl almost with the same age of her was a dreamer and she wanted be a healer. And I can´t contain the tears thinking about  how she changed the life of this girl. 

Obviously I am not going to say what is about all the book but she reached the assasins in the desert and learned a lot about theirs. Celaene thought that she could eat the world by herself but that was a big lie just in front in her face. And in this book we are going to find how her first love was terrible killed. How she almost died in a horrible way. And how for the end of this book she is going to finish in a camp of slaves. Remember what I said in the begining? That she managed free a big number of slaves, well she was enslaved for the end of this book. But she always find a way to find light in the darkness and like a mantra she repeated herself:

“My name is Celaena Sardothien," she whispered, "and I will not be afraid.” 

This book was amazing for me and I recommend to everyone that is fan of this serie read this book and please pay attention to the deatils because in the next books you are going to find a lot of clue that were first in this book.

  5. It's really such a review, you did a great job, but what really drew my attention, and I identified myself a lot with... in some respect... was the beginning, with the quote that yes, we make choices that at the time we think are right and then... many times we suffer for them.
