The Assassin and the Pirate Lord

Celaena and Sam are sent on a mission by Arobynn to track down a pirate lord, but not everything goes according to plan.

The Assassin and the Healer

Yrene is a barmaid who has magical healing powers, but when she is attacked while doing her job, Celaena comes to the rescue.

The Assassin and the Desert

Celaena travels to the Red Desert to train with the Silent Assassins, but when their stronghold is breached, she is forced to fight alongside them if she wants to make it back home alive.

The Assassin and the Underworld

Celaena is sent on another mission by Arobynn, this time to defeat a couple of slave owners, but the task proves more dangerous than she anticipated.

The Assassin and the Empire

Celaena and Sam are now living on their own, free from Arobynn’s chains that confined them to him, but when Celaena sets out to complete a last job, one mistake is all it takes for her world to fall apart.

The Assassin’s Blade is a collection of five short stories following Celaena Sardothian, set before the events of Throne of Glass. You can read it before the books in the Throne of Glass series, but it’s best to be read after Throne of Glass, because some of the stories do contain spoilers for that book.

The stories contain:

• Violence (fighting, murder, torture, and bloody descriptions)
• Kissing
• Profanity (sh*t, d*mn, and h*ll)
• Drinking
• A group of rowdy men attempt to rape a young woman

  1. I rad this prior to reading ToG. I didn't think it spoiled anything for me at all. As a matter of fact, I thought it gave me better insight into Celaena. I'm glad I read it before. But since it came out after, I'm sure reading it after is probably just as good. I love this series.
