I just finished reading the novella The Assassin and the Pirate Lord (Throne of Glass #0.1) by Sarah J. Maas.
A Throne of Glass novella.
On a remote island in a tropical sea, Celaena Sardothien, feared assassin, has come for retribution. She’s been sent by the Assassin’s Guild to collect on a debt they are owed by the Lord of the Pirates. But when Celaena learns that the agreed payment is not in money, but in slaves, her mission suddenly changes—and she will risk everything to right the wrong she’s been sent to bring about.
This was a quick glimpse of the life Calaena lived before we meet her in Throne of Glass. It was interesting to see what she was like as Adarlan's Assassin. And of course, we get to meet Sam. Even though in this novella, they are just starting to be friendly, you can see the spark and the chemistry. They make a great team.
A fun story and I look forward to reading more of the novellas!
