cA little intimidation never did any harm cAll that the world knew about Celaena Sardothien Adarlan’s Assassin was that she was female And she wanted to keep it that way How else would she be able to stroll the broad avenues of Rifthold or infiltrate grand parties by posing as foreign nobility? cAnd she's got uite a tongue on her“You’re assassins” she growled at him “You’re supposed to be able to retrieve a body without being seen” c“If I’d been there I would have killed all of them to get Ben’s body back” c“He can’t be a very good lord” she said “if this is his personal office” c“I suppose you don’t need an introduction” Rolfe turned to her“No” Celaena leaned back farther in his desk chair “I suppose I don’t” c“Get out of my chair” “You really need to work on organizing this mess” c“How long exactly have you been involved in the slave trade?” c“I’m the world’s greatest assassin” She lifted her chin “I’m not afraid of anyone”“Really?” Rolfe asked “Because I’m the world’s greatest pirate and I’m afraid of a great number of people That’s how I’ve managed to stay alive for so long” c“Why go to so much trouble for slaves?”“Because if we don’t fight for them who will?” cNiftyThe map—that was the mythic map that he’d sold his soul to have inked on his hands The map of the world’s oceans—the map that changed to show storms foes and treasure c“You realize this is the most reckless thing you’ve ever done right?”“Reckless but maybe the most meaningful too” cLovelyShe walked until there was nothing in the world but the grumble and hiss of the waves the sigh of the sand beneath her feet and the glare of the moon on the water cPine and snow—a city still in winter’s grasp She breathed it in staring across the leagues of lonely black ocean seeing somehow that distant city that had once long ago been her home The wind ripped the strands of hair from her braid lashing them across her face Orynth A city of light and music watched over by an alabaster castle with an opal tower so bright it could be viewed for milesThe moonlight vanished behind a thick cloud In the sudden dark the stars glowed brighter cSomewhere near the back one of the mountain men began translating And then two others translated too—one in the language of Melisande and another in a language she didn’t recognize Had it been clever or cowardly of them not to speak up last night when she asked who spoke the common tongue? cAnd she has some interesting plans“No matter if the chain is still up no matter what might be happening in town the moment the sun slips over the horizon you start rowing like hell” cshe tripped a passing pirate who spilled his drink on an already belligerent man who in turn tried to punch him in the face but hit the man next to him instead By luck at that moment a trick card fell out of a man’s sleeve a prostitute slapped a pirate wench and the tavern exploded into a brawl AnimalsTo her delight the streets weren’t much better “ENOUGH”Everyone lifted whatever they had in their hands—a mug a sword a clump of hair—and salutedAnd then promptly resumed fighting cIt didn’t take much to get away from a group of half drunk battlecrazed pirates cShe’d she’d Well she’d kill him if he was dead c Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestThe other day I got a comment on one of my reviews for the Throne of Glass series A stan had decided to tell me that the only reason I didn't like the books was because I hadn't read the preuels yet My reaction was Are you kidding me? I've read books 1 7 and yet I still need to read books in this series after clocking in around three thousand pages to give this series a fair shot? I said as much The stan did not respondI've been told that the preuels are allegedly better than the main novels but if that's the case their charm is lost on me Teenage Celery is just as annoying as adult Celery We see her here as a sixteen year old assassin and very proud of the fact that she doesn't really kill anyone so much as kick punch shove and insult them while also bragging about how beautiful and great she is The only other person I know with so much confidence and so little credibility is Donald TrumpCelery's mission is to go to the pirate lord Rolfe to see him about his slave trade She's very angry about the fact that he has so many slaves but doesn't kill the pirate lord nor does she see the correlation between assassin and slave trader; like him she is also a robber of lives only when you're dead there's no chance of freedom No she's got the moral high ground here Right side eyeI thought this book was just as lame as the other books personally But I got the anthology edition of these short stories from the library ironically the day after I received that stan comment so I assume that it's fate that I must read these Who knows? Maybe one will sway meStranger things have happened1 star The Assassin and the Pirate Lord features Celaena Sardothien and Sam the Notoriously Handsome Can I call him that ? HahaThey're both assassins working for Arobynn Hamel Frankly the book bored me at first then boom the chemistry clicked and the pace was amazing I couldn't put it down for an hourThe story happens before Throne of Glass but I suggest you should read ToG first to fully enjoy the worldbuilding and some details that Maas didn't thoroughly explain in this novella about slave trades and the secrets Arobynn hides behind his stern face “He couldn't be dead Not from the dagger or those dozen pirates or from the catapult No Sam couldn't be so stupid that he'd get himself killed She'd she'd Well she'd kill him if he was dead” What an incredible start of The Assassin’s BladeThis novella made me admire the notorious assassin Celaena Sardothien Her character here is far well developed compared to her character in Throne of Glass In this novella her bad assery can easily be perceived She’s braver dangerous and a lot ferocious than I’ve ever thought Sarah J Maas has really given us a firecracker of a female main characterThe Assassin and the Pirate Lord is the first novella of The Assassin’s Blade It’s a flashback story of Celaena’s past particularly before she was captured by the Crown Prince of Adarlan Dorian and the Captain of the Guard Chaol It was such a great experience discovering Celaena’s past getting to know the people she was acuainted with like her master– Arobynn Hamel and of course her childhood close friend who soon turned her love interest Sam Cortland This novella also apparently featured the Pirate Lord himself RolfeWhat I love about this novella was how the action scenes carried me away It was a blast And Celaena completely blown me away with her fierceness Her heart is so soft but she kills without hesitation THIS IS WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR IN A CELAENA SARDOTHIENRating 5 Stars #01 The Assassin and the Pirate Lord ★★★#02 The Assassin and the Healer ★★#03 The Assassin and the Desert ★★★★#04 The Assassin and the Underworld ★★★★★#05 The Assassin and the Empire ★★★#1 Throne of Glass ★★★#2 Crown of Midnight ★★★★#3 Heir of Fire ★★#4 ueen of Shadows ★★This first novella had so much potential I would have given the premise of this story a solid five stars I mean Sam and Celaena working with pirates to discover what happened to three of their fellow assassins? What could I ask for? Sadly the pirate lord Rolfe and their mission fell a little short for me I did love being reintroduced to Celaena and just remembering how far she has came from this scared and arrogant sixteen year old Sam was wonderful; I loved him from first glance and his back story still breaks my heart It was weird being actually introduced to Sam because his memory has played such a big part in the series it has just felt like I've always known him Oh and seeing Arobynn again made me feel a vast array of emotions too Blog | Twitter | Tumblr | Instagram | Youtube | Twitch I'm really glad I picked this up I've been in the worst reading slump and this has yanked me back out of it I love it i was a bit skeptical i might not like it as much as i do the Throne of Glass series cause i adore the series but this is as good as the seriesI finally get to know about the infamous Sam Cortland all the reason to hate Arobynn The book is mainly about how she released the slaves that was talked about in Empire of StormsThe writing style is the same that was used in the series third person POV can't wait to read the rest novellas
