Celaena Sardothien is her kingdom's most feared assassin. Though she works for the powerful and ruthless Assassin's Guild, Celaena yields to no one and trusts only her fellow killer for hire, Sam.

When Celaena's scheming master, Arobynn Hamel, dispatches her on missions that take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, she finds herself acting independently of his wishes-and questioning her own allegiance. Along the way, she makes friends and enemies alike, and discovers that she feels far more for Sam than just friendship. But by defying Arobynn's orders, Celaena risks unimaginable punishment, and with Sam by her side, he is in danger, too. They will have to risk it all if they hope to escape Arobynn's clutches-and if they fail, they'll lose not just a chance at freedom, but their lives . . .

A prequel to Throne of Glass, this collection of five novellas offers readers a deeper look into the history of this cunning assassin and her enthralling-and deadly-world.

Included in this volume:
The Assassin and the Pirate Lord
The Assassin and the Healer
The Assassin and the Desert
The Assassin and the Underworld
The Assassin and the Empire

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First book in a long time and loving it!! I have not read a book in a long time and I have looked at reading one after this but never did. So finally picked up this one on my kobo and read it when able to, have only read eight chapters of it and freaking loving it. Love how the author has written it, and love how the main character and the character she is with interact with one another. Also would love to wear a outfit like the main characters, would so love to have a outfit like that can so see that in my head. So want to read more of it and would so recommend this book to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great prequel to the Throne of Glass series! As I think the Throne of Glass series is one of the best YA series out there, I had high expectations for these novellas, and I'm happy to say that I wasn't disappointed! These novellas are of the same high quality that all fans of Sarah J. Maas are looking for! It was fun to read about Celaena's adventures before Throne of Glass and discover how she ends up in the salt mines of Endovier. The only critique I have of this book is that there were a few parts of some of the novellas that were not as action-packed or interesting as they could of been, and I feel like they dragged on a bit at times. Despite this, the overall novellas were great and are worth your time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing I actually read the short stories first before reading Throne of Glass to see if I would like it. After I read these short stories I bought the first two in the series and powered through them in two days. Absolutely amazing.
