After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men—thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the kings council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her… but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead… quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

  1. Thanks for sharing the link to the excerpt! I’m super excited about this one but I’ve yet to request it from Netgalley. I’m not allowing myself on the site until I shrink my review pile by a few books. 😛 If you like assassins, you should check out Grave Mercy if you haven’t already…I LOVED that one.

    Here’s my WoW post. Happy Wednesday! 😀

    1. Haha, nice self control! 😀 You should totally check out the excerpt though. It only takes a few minutes to get through it.

      I actually read Grave Mercy a few weeks ago! That’s definitely a great one! I’m totally looking forward to the next book in that series!!

      I checked out your WoW and posted – thanks for sharing!

      1. Ha, so much for self-control. I read the excerpt and I was hooked, so I had to go request it from NG. Can’t wait to read the rest now! Thanks again for posting the link…but I’ll be blaming you when my family complains they miss me. 😛

  2. I can’t wait to read this book too! 😀 I love kick ass female mains!! It makes me feel so giddy.
