What I Thought: The Assassin's Blade is filled with five amazing novella's, prequels to Throne of Glass. There is fighting aplenty, blossoming romance, defiance and of course betrayal. I was lucky enough to have read four of these novellas before I read Throne of Glass, and I'm so glad I did. It gave so much extra insight into Celaena's back story, and of course there is Sam. In the Pirate Lord, Celaena and Sam are on a mission from Arobynn to bring back slaves, yet it doesn't go according to plan. In the Healer, Celaena meets a special girl with special gifts, and teaches her how to defend herself. In the Desert, Celaena learns new ways from the assassin's in the red desert, and finds out more about herself. In the Underworld, Celaena gets back from her red desert punishment and is sent on a mission for the slaves in the city, but not is all as it seems. In the Empire, the novellas lead us into the start of Throne of Glass, where Celaena tries to get away from Arobynn and loses everything.

These stories are an absolutely amazing addition to the Throne of Glass series, and left me wanting more more more!
If you haven't read them yet, then I highly suggest you grab this right this second and get reading! Sarah J. Maas doesn't fail to impress, I promise you that!

The Good: Extremely good look into how Celaena ended up in the salt mines of Endovier at the start of Throne of Glass! Plus, Sam <3 font="">

The Bad: I loved them so damn much that I actually just want more more more of them. I mean, come on! Please?
