“If you can learn to endure pain, you can survive anything. Some people learn to embrace it- to love it. Some endure it through drowning it in sorrow, or by making themselves forget. Others turn it into anger.”

Summary

Contains all five novellas.

Celaena Sardothien is Adarlan’s most feared assassin. As part of the Assassin’s Guild, her allegiance is to her master, Arobynn Hamel, yet Celaena listens to no one and trusts only her fellow killer-for-hire, Sam. In these action-packed novellas – together in one edition for the first time – Celaena embarks on five daring missions. They take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, where she fights to liberate slaves and seeks to avenge the tyrannous. But she is acting against Arobynn’s orders and could suffer an unimaginable punishment for such treachery. Will Celaena ever be truly free? Explore the dark underworld of this kick-ass heroine to find out.

Personal Experiences

Oh my God! Wait, What! Yes! Holy Hell! Yes! … Noooooooooooooo! 😭

That was my mind throughout the five novellas in this book. And that last one was hard to digest.

I always wanted to know Alien Galanthyius and Celeana Sardothien’s past. But I resisted reading this book until I had finished Empire of Storms and digested those five books.

God, maybe I should’ve read this one before all the others. It was not one of Sarah J. Maas’s best works, mind you, but I’ve wanted to know her past for so long, that I just didn’t care.

It was really weird reading her past after reading her future.

Quotes

“She was fire, she was darkness, she was dust and blood and shadow.”


“She would tuck Sam into her heart, a bright light for her to take out whenever things were darkest.”


“There was no way in hell she was going to move to the southern continent without all of her books.”


“I love you,” he repeated, shaking her again. “I have for years. But if I asked you to pick, you’d choose Arobynn, and I. Can’t. Take. It.”
“You’re a damned idiot,” she breathed grabbing the front of his tunic. “You’re a moron and an ass and a damned idiot.” He looked like she had hit him. But she went on, and grasped both sides of his face. “Because I’d pick you.”


“My name is Celaena Sardothien,” she whispered, “and I will not be afraid.”
