The Assassin's Blade Reviews
i dont want to talk about my feelings right now i need a couple weeks to process this
I actually enjoyed this more than the first book! It was nice to get a little more insight into Celaena's history and learn how she came to be in the salt mines in the first place. All the novellas flow really well together too (except for The Assassin and the Healer; I feel like that one could have been taken out). Also it was cool to see Celaena actually BE an assassin (I haven't read anything else past the first book, so I don't know if she does later).
I just wish we could have had a scene (p ...more
"You said you didn't care what I thought. Or what I did. Or if I died, if I'm not mistaken."Ohmygosh. I'm still reeling.
"I lied! And you know I lied, you stupid bastard!"
The five novellas are so well written and woven together that this almost feels like a book in its own right.
Set far before Celaena bacame the King's Assassin, we watch as she fights to the top of the assassin's guild and claim her rightful spot.
Along the way, she meets true friends and dire enemies. She learns exactly what ...more
"My name is Celaena Sardothien and I will not be afraid."
Well, that quote just got a whole lot more meaning to it.
I SURVIVED THIS BOOK! I was expecting a lot worse, honestly.

It's more about Celaena's twisted relationship with Arobynn than anything else. And THAT was enough to permanently mess anyone u ...more
I LOVE THIS DAMN BOOK
I'm going to work my way through an entire reread of this series and I'm sooooo excited! I honestly forgot how much I love this book.
hi just wanted to let ya’ll know that this book crushed what was left of my soul
This review will be a little different from my others for several reasons. This is a series we are way too deep into for me to go over each character or plot. I won’t me writing a super detailed review for each one, just a small summary, my favorite quote, and the rating.
The Assassin's Blade is a bind up of five novellas for the Throne of Glass Series. I’m just going to say this right way... I wish I would have read this right after Throne of Glass. I wish I wouldn't have waited till I was four ...more
I really enjoyed this! Some stories I liked more than others, but it was nice to see what happened to Celaena leading up to Throne of Glass.
I would have liked to have seen more of her when she was younger and training, though.
Now, on to rereading Throne of Glass!
