This time I choose The Assassin and The Desert (Throne of Glass #0.2) by Sarah J. Maas, a prequel novella of Throne of Glass.

The Mute Master. She had expected him to be ancient, but he seemed to be around fifty. She kept her chin held high as the approached him, following the tile path in the floor. She couldn't tell if the Master's skin had always been that tan of if it was from the sun. He smiled slightly - he'd probably been handsome in his youth. Sweat oozed down Celaena's spine. Though the Master had no visible weapons, the two servants fanning him with palm leaves were armed to the teeth. Her escort stopped a safe distance from the Master and bowed.
