The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J Maas

The Assassin's Blade - Sarah J. Maas

The Assassin and the Pirate Lord

  This was nothing special but I was glad that we are able to see the start of Sam and Celeana. :)



The Assassin and the Healer
I loved the novella so much more than the first! This novella made me love Celeana even more but made me question how she can flip her humanity on and off so quickly. I hope that we see Yrene later in the series. ;)

The Assassin and the Desert

This novella was AMAZING. I loved seeing the Silent Assassins always talked about in the Throne of Glass series! The friendships and the trust going on there was very much needed for Celeana. She's not had it easy and I think that helped to toughen her up and still (at the same time) lighten her heart to let her know that darkness doesn't always win.


I LOVED the characters and the plot in this...And that twist? Shot me in the heart!

The Assassin and the Underworld.
Hmmm...I'm not sure what I expected from this. I enjoyed it but the title lead me to believe it would have more fantasy elements to it and not just referring to more along the lines of people who do wrong. Not to say I didn't like this because I really did! The title is a bit misleading,though.


Celeana (as always) is such a kick-ass character! She doesn't let bribes allow her to do wrong, she follows her heart...Even if that means getting herself into trouble. This is one of those rare moments when Celeana finds herself in peril and who better to save her than Sam?

The romance in this is sweet and subtle, not overwhelming like it was in parts of Crown of Midnight. Definitely not looking forward to Sam's death in the next one because that's obviously all that's left.


The Assassin and the Empire.

   All I can say is 'yessss'. This novella was so satisfying and heartbreaking. I hated seeing Celeana so low and yet it only helped her blossom into the amazing person she is now.
