(Throne of Glass 0.1)

On a remote island in a tropical sea, Celaena Sardothien, feared assassin, has come for retribution. She’s been sent by the Assassin’s Guild to collect on a debt they are owed by the Lord of the Pirates. But when Celaena learns that the agreed payment is not in money, but in slaves, her mission suddenly changes—and she will risk everything to right the wrong she’s been sent to bring about.

She should’ve killed Rolfe.

Not because I expect her to, given that she is an assassin, but because people like Rolfe does not take betrayals lightly. For sure, the Pirate Lord will come sooner or later to kill Celaena once he gets his chance.

And here’s the famous Sam, who she has talked about when painful memories visit her. I am not particularly impresses with Sam, but his relationship with Celaena is an interesting one.

It made me smile that early on, she’s battling with morality already, given that she does what she is told as an assassin.

(Throne of Glass #1.2)

This is NOT a novella.

The Assassin and the Captain is a short story/scene that takes place in between Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight.

It was boring as hell without you.

Chaol. ❤

Reading Throne of Glass doesn’t give much if Chaol Westfall is a contender for Celaena’s heart. But this… wow. what a tease, a soft treat for Team Chaol!

How amusing to see Celaena fishing for comments or hints of feelings from the Captain. Hee. This short of a story is packed with subtle sweetness and swoon. Yay!

Read this before diving into Crown of Midnight. The anticipation of what is to come for Celaena and Chaol’s friendship is on a high. *winks*
