The Assassin and The Empire: Review


Celaena Sardothien is the assassin with everything: a place to call her own, the love of handsome Sam, and, best of all, freedom. Yet, she won’t be truly free until she is far away from her old master, Arobynn Hamel; Celaena must take one last daring assignment that will liberate her forever. But having it all, means you have a lot to lose . . .

This fourth fantastic e-novella gives readers an inside look at the characters who appear in the full-length novel Throne of Glass. Don’t miss out!


Damn, wasn't that a rush. My questions raised in The Assassin and The Underworld are answered. But I am quite angry right now. I mean, having all your hope and possibilities right ahead of you squeezed and vanished into nothingness isn't something anyone wants to encounter. In this short story, Celaena Sardothein has to bear this burden of loss. Despite her still being a bitch sometimes (though not often), I can feel her loss and heartbreak and truly feel bad for the once fearless and cold-hearted assassin.

This short story also explains the one thing in the first book of this series: how Celaena Sardothein, the best assassin in Adarlan, ended up being a criminal and being tortured. I sense a great story is coming ahead. I really, really like this novella and I can't wait to read Throne of Glass.

Rating: 8/10
