❤“She was fire, she was darkness, she was dust and blood and shadow.”

❤“I can wait,” he said thickly, kissing her collarbone. “We have all the time in the world.”

❤“The silence was suddenly too charged, his face too beautiful in the light.”

❤“Rain continued beating against the hall windows, a distant reminder that there was still a world around them.”

❤“If you can learn to endure pain, you can survive anything. Some people learn to embrace it- to love it. Some endure it through drowning it in sorrow, or by making themselves forget. Others turn it into anger.”



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.



When I started this book, it was only to get a better insight on Celaena Sardothien’s Character, which it did, but not just that. The Assassin’s Blade is a back story of the Throne of Glass Series, it compiles all 4 Novellas published in one and another story in the end. Overall, it was a remarkable experience reading it, there’s thriller, romance, drama and a little bit of Sarah J. Maas in each page of the story.

The story starts off easy and paces slowly as you progress. I personally felt like its going to be just one other book, like its not that much of a read, but then it started and woah is it intense!200_s

Assassin Blade takes you to many places and you meet many people, each magical in their own way, each intense and throbbing than the other. I love how strongly and swiftly Sarah makes us fall in love with her characters, it’s impossible to not feel they’re real, I have such strong feelings and imagination in my mind for all them Assassins. Anyway, there are many characters that you’ll love and hate in the book, namely:

Sardothien – Our knight and fighter
Sam – The handsome guy that breaks our heart
Lysandra – That necessary Bitch
Ainsel – The girl you either absolutely Love or Absolutely hate
Arobynn – Well can I say Bellatrix? But no he’s not all bad 😉 For Vampire Diaries fans – He’s close to Daemon (close I said)

There are more characters, the pirate and the mute master and Ben, who dies, btw. Did I mention Celaena is head over heels crazy in love in this book? oh wait, that’s not a spoiler so don’t just freak out on me yet. But just so I don’t give out spicy details, let’s leave you hanging with these thoughts —

  • Who killed Ben and Why?
  • Which Character does our Kickass Heroine fall for? A-B-R-S-shhh 
  • Is the Mute Master (of Assassin’s) Sardothien’s  Friend or Enemy?
  • We know Sardothien isn’t going to die, but who does she kill to survive?

Well Read The Assassin’s Blade to find out!
