Finally I am getting around to reading the adventures of my dear Celaena Sardothien. LOWKEY, I kind of love the assassin more than the queen, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t love the queen.
I wanted to read it before I read Empire of Storms BUT I kind of got distracted with other books that were coming out around the same time. I am not a huge fan of novellas, but I do know that some of the characters introduced in the last book were first introduced in some of these novellas in The Assassin’s Blade. And because I love Sarah J. Maas’s story telling and her writing, I am going to go ahead and read these beauties.
So, with that said, I am going to read and rate these so I can finally be completely caught up on The Throne of Glass Series: Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, Queen of Shadows, Empire of Storms, and Tower of Dawn.
The Assassin and the Pirate Lord (Throne of Glass, #0.1)
What an introduction my dear Captain Rolfe, Lord of the Pirates. I now understand why you hate Celaena so much and might I say, it is pretty funny. And might I add, you are the absolute worst kind of person.
If an assassin, the most feared I might add, and her colleague, Sam, are disgusted with even the idea of slaves, then what is your excuse Rolfe?
I mean really, you walked into the mess that is Celaena. She may be an assassin, but she has good intentions. She may love throwing temper tantrum, but always be aware that she has something more dramtic up her sleeve for you.
This was a lovely novella. It sheds a lot of light on Empire of Storms, and why The Pirate Lord was being such a baby about things.
I would encourage anyone reading this series to read the novellas before Empire of Storms to save you any confusion.
P.S. I already love Sam and I already know my heart is going to hurt when I am done with these novellas.
