She ignored him and studied the four other people assembled in the underground chamber.
All male, all far older than she, and all refusing to meet her stare. Picking at her manicured nails, Celaena schooled her features into neutrality. This meeting was undeniably important.
Thankfully, her sleepwear was as exquisite as her daytime wardrobe—and cost nearly as much. Still, being sixteen in a room with men made her keep an eye on the neckline of her robe. Her beauty was a weapon—one she kept honed—but it could also be a vulnerability. Arobynn Hamel, King of the Assassins, lounged at the head of the table, his auburn hair shining in the light from the glass chandelier.
His gray eyes met hers, and he frowned. It might have just been the late hour, but Celaena could have sworn that her mentor was paler than usual. Her stomach twisted. Well, that would explain one person missing from this meeting.
She tapped a slippered foot on the marble floor. Celaena knew very well what Sam Cortland thought of her. Ben would probably throttle Sam for it when he arrived. The Girl with the Iron Touch.

My main issue was with the heroine. I found her way too arrogant, spoiled and self-righteous. How can a 16 year-old girl believe that she is so much better than other people with twice her age and training? Maybe my issue is that the book i 3 stars I admit that I did not enjoy this book as much as I wanted.
Maybe my issue is that the book is YA so the age is the thing that annoyed me most? I'm not so sure, but the fact remains that for a 16 year-old this girl was overestimating her self-worth way too much.
What I did like though was the writing and the overall story.
The Assassin's Blade
The author is obviously talented and I want to believe that Celeana gets more likeable later on. View all 9 comments. Sep 04, Sky rated it liked it. For an assassin, Celeana sure didn't lose her morals. Killing is a fast end. Slavery is endless torture. She couldn't stand by and and watch her master destroy lives, so she had to interfere.
Celeana's character sure is refreshing, although I'd prefer a little less time people talking about her beauty and more time her kicking ass. Although Sam annoyed me in the beginning with his whining he kinda grew For an assassin, Celeana sure didn't lose her morals. Although Sam annoyed me in the beginning with his whining he kinda grew on me. Let's hope I love him in the next 4 novellas. I can't wait to see what happens in the next novellas. May 16, Jasmine rated it really liked it Shelves: Celaena Sardothien was 16 years old in this book and at that time, Sam Cortland was still alive, but I couldn't tolerate her gargantuan arrogance at all!
Although I did better understand the story plot after reading the sequels first this time, her impossibly terrible attitude was the most dislike part for me. For the very first time I'd love to see you suffer for your bossiness, Celaena. The only reason I gave it one more star was because I could relate to the characters more during the re-read and everything made sense. Initial rating: After a few pages of reading, I started to get bored by the main character, Celaena Sardothien's attitude and behavior.
I mean, she was just a year-old girl and she acted way too mature. I don't like the arrogance in her tone whenever she talked to the Pirate or the fellow assassins and I didn't have the same level of excitement in the fighting scenes or her killing skills as I always gained in other novels. View all 5 comments. My rating system: I do use half stars. Not because a book might not be worthy, but because a book is never perfect.
There weren't too many flaws, and I had no trouble getting through it. A 4 star rating is the highest rating I've ever given a book.

There seems to be a lot of tidbits that are needed to really understand all of the characters that show up in the latter half of the series.
Jul 13, Brooklyn Tayla rated it it was amazing Shelves: Once again, all throughout this beautiful first installment of "The Assassin's Blade", my heart loved every moment! I will never tire of Celaena and Sam, and knowing what is to come still makes this tragically bittersweet but ach my heart! Their banter is perfection and Celaena showing Rolfe is always epic tbh.
Tolle Kurzgeschichte um Celaena und Sam, hat mir wirklich sehr gut gefallen! Maas has created. It took me a little while to warm up to him. I liked the setting of this novella a lot. I have always had a fascination with pirates. From Blackbeard to Jack Sparrow, I have always loved pirates.
I liked that this novella took place on an Island that the Lord of the Pirates rules over. The way Maas described the island made it sound like it could be a real place somewhere in the Caribbean. I loved that she 0. I loved that she was willing to risk her career and her name to free a few hundred strangers, and the ending set a wonderful stage for her relationship with Sam and his willingness to follow her, no matter the cost. Nov 24, Sabrina rated it liked it. Get it here: So far it's off to a good start!
I'm curious to see more about Celaena since right now she just comes off as a bit conceited. I had waited quite a long time to read a good story about an assassin heroine.
Mass certainly didn't disappoint me. We kill people. We destroy lives every day. The assassin is Celaena Sardothien, a sixteen years old teenage girl. Her age was the only thing that cute about her. She's beautiful I had waited quite a long time to read a good story about an assassin heroine.
She's beautiful and deadly, such qualities that make oh-so-arrogant aura sticks with her most of the times. I better not giving details about the story since this is a novella.
Any kind of information about the story might be too much. So the big picture is about Celaena and her partner Sam doing an assignment which involved the pirates and slavery.
I must say I enjoyed it very much. The first half was spent without action while the last half was full of actions.
See a Problem?
Though, I can't say I was bored reading the first half. The characters, by this I mean Celaena and Sam, were intriguing. As I said earlier, we have a strong but very arrogant and icy heroine. Celaena is the kind of young girl with huge ego because she's aware that she's very good despite her very young age.
I had disliked her at the beginning, before she started to reveal her compassion for others. Sam, on the other hand, is everything that Celaena is not. He's friendly, talkative, calm, and reachable. With these two assassins like fire and ice doing a mission together, how could I get bored? My only complaint was the story is told from third person pov, but I felt it was being told from first person pov.
Everything was described through Celaena, which of course wasn't supposed to be that way. Although it annoyed me, the writing was good enough to get me hook and drew my emotions. There were some touching moments between Celaena and Sam.
Though their relationship was more like brother-sister thing rather than a romance fling despite I got the hints that Sam -probably- had a deeper feeling for Celaena , I liked both of them together.
As the first novella, the very beginning story of Throne of Glass series, this was a good one. The Assassin and the Pirate Lord , has successfully rocked my expectation for the series.
If I don't read the second novella soon it won't be because I don't want to, but because the third novella: The Assassin and the Desert isn't published yet. I'm very curious with the series right now and I'm not comfortable with waiting.
Therefore, dear author, the Throne of Glass novel needs to be published sooner than the schedule on August View all 20 comments. Feb 03, Hayley added it. Sam Cortland. I already have the feels and knowing what is to come is going to rebreak my heart, mind and soul again and again and again. Feb 14, Kim rated it it was ok.

So I remember vaguely remember reading Queen of Glass now Throne of Glass on fictionpress years ago, like when I was in high school, and I remembered being extremely impressed with the idea of Cinderella as an assassin. I only read the first part of the story, so I can only give my opinion of the first part. The story and idea was wonderful and creative, but the writing definitely needed some improvement. I was rather excited for this novella because I was interested in the story, but I also h So I remember vaguely remember reading Queen of Glass now Throne of Glass on fictionpress years ago, like when I was in high school, and I remembered being extremely impressed with the idea of Cinderella as an assassin.
I was rather excited for this novella because I was interested in the story, but I also hoped that Ms. Maas had improved her writing to do justice to the beautiful world she had created.
However, after reading this novella, I was slightly disappointed. Her writing style is rather simple and slightly plain. I'm not expecting lyrical and beautiful prose you might expect from, say Patricia A. McKillip, but I do expect an author to be able to set a mood for me to feel.
Unfortunately, in the novella, alot of the scenes fail to make me feel anything for the characters. For example, the very first opening scene would have been great if I could feel the suspense and tension between the characters, but I felt nothing. Feelings and mood were stated in words rather than described, which would be the more effective route.
I also had a slight problem with our main heroine, Celaena Sardothien. I love the idea of a kickass heroine that has a backbone of steel, but Celaena seems a bit naive, don't you think? I don't want to spoil anything, but I do think Celaena's actions in this novella really made her seem unrealistically naive. To be an assassin, one must be able to cast aside ALOT of moral principles that normal people hold to.
The assassins' guild Celaena belongs to is described as the best. Being the best, especially in the field of killing people for money, carries with it an understood ruthlessness. I expect coldhearted murder from my assassins, not some moral highground. Also, Celaena mentions that her guild only goes after the "bad" people greedy aristocrats, etc.
I would like to point out that what she said doesn't make much sense. If the assassins only kill the bad people, who do you think hire them? The good guys? No, if you're a good guy, you don't hire assassins to kill your enemy BECAUSE you're the good guy, the honorable person who would never do such a thing.King's Cage.
The time now is I don't want to spoil anything, but I do think Celaena's actions in this novella really made her seem unrealistically naive. I haven't enjoy a series like this in a long time and I can't wait for her next book s to come out.
