Review: I was super excited when Sarah J. Maas came to my area for a signing, that I got the rest of the Throne of Glass series, so I could catch up on them. That have been amazing!!! I think so far the Assassin’s Blade is my favorite book in the series so far. I just love Celaena back then because it was like she was this complete different person, but at the same time not. I also really loved all of her adventures that she went on in the Red Desert. And then there was Sam…. sigh, I just don’t know what to say about him but that he was great.
*Spoilers* To the assassin’s blade and throne of glass if not read yet…- I think the saddest scene I have read yet, was when she saw his body and just laid next to it on the table because she missed him so much and was in shock still. Ugh that feels.
The artwork of the book is my favorite too!
5 out of 5 stars.

Summary: 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.
