Summary

Summary

She is the greatest assassin her world has ever known.
But where will her conscience, and her heart, lead her?

After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king's contest to become the new royal assassin. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown -- a secret she hides from even her most intimate confidantes.Keeping up the deadly charade--while pretending to do the king's bidding--will test her in frightening new ways, especially when she's given a task that could jeopardize everything she's come to care for. And there are far more dangerous forces gathering on the horizon -- forces that threaten to destroy her entire world, and will surely force Celaena to make a choice. Where do the assassin's loyalties lie, and who is she willing to fight for?

Horn Book Review

As the King's Champion, Celaena must assassinate anyone the king chooses, but she undermines his rule--and stays alive--by faking her targets' deaths. Secrets abound in this epic fantasy's second volume, and rebel activity, the king's nefarious plans, a murder mystery, a love triangle, and figuring out whom to trust keep the bad-ass heroine busy and readers engaged through the final reveal.
