Horn Book Review

In Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight, Maas refers to events in assassin Celaena's past that led her to become the King's Champion; this compilation of five prequel novellas recounts her experiences in the Assassins' Guild. Maas maintains tighter control over her prose here, and she highlights a softer side to Celaena's warrior persona through her relationship with fellow assassin Sam. (c) Copyright 2014.
