When Celaena's scheming master, Arobynn Hamel, dispatches her on missions that take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, she finds herself acting independently of his wishes - and questioning her own allegiance. Along the way, she makes friends and enemies alike, and discovers that she feels far more for Sam than just friendship. But by defying Arobynn's orders, Celaena risks unimaginable punishment, and with Sam by her side, he is in danger, too. They will have to risk it all if they hope to escape Arobynn's clutches - and if they fail, they'll lose not just a chance at freedom, but their lives…

Celaena the Assassin
#1 - The Assassin And The Pirate Lord
The first story of the novellas is more like an introduction to the story of Celaena and Sam. I forgot how arrogant she can be but we also get that she has ideals. This story is the weakest one of the bunch.
#2 - The Assassin And The Healer
My favorite so far. And for a split second we see another glimpse of Celaena’s caring side. Nice story.
#3 - The Assassin And The Desert
Although boring in the beginning I kind of warmed up to the story - not to Ansel though. In my head I was really rooting for Celeana to kill her and be over with it because I didn’t buy that whole „we are good friends“ bs. I kind of think that we will see Ansel in future stories (though I really hope not).
#4 - The Assassin And The Underworld
I just about had it with Arobynn. Why did I think going into this short story collection that Arobynn was a father figure to Celaena? How can somebody be such an asshole to you when he brought you up? Well, if you hadn’t have any feelings for Celaena I think this story will help you with it.
#5 - The Assassin And The Empire
Although I knew how this story is going to end I sobbed anyway. Pour Sam, pour Celaena. I really hope she can get her revenge on Arobynn. This story really sets the stage for the first novel in the series.
Although not all stories were perfect, I enjoyed them very much. The only thing that really bothered me in the beginning was how naiv Celaena was but then I corrected myself: she is a girl not a grown woman and everyone has to learn somewhere, unfortunately Celaena has to learn the hard way.

Celaena's origin story
An integral part of Celaena's story. In parts funny, insightful, exciting and utterly heartbreaking. Everyone who reads the Throne of Glass series should read The Assassin's Blade as well. Every single story is meaningful and has a lot of impact on future events. And it will make reading Empire of Storms all the more rewarding! I fully recommend this for all fans of Sarah J Maas' work and fans of the Throne of Glass series.
