ACTUAL RATING: 3.5
“I’m the world’s greatest assassin.” She lift her chin. “I’m not afraid of anyone.”
I liked this book… seriously, I did. There were some stories that I liked more than others, but that’s normal (I guess). It was slow – paced and it was weird because I thought I was going to read it really fast like the first two books. I cannot give this book 5 stars because I was bored at times. Sorry Sarah! I liked learning about Celaena’s past and how she got to the Salt Mines of Endovier. I wanted to read this book because I thought I was going to know more about Celaena’s childhood, you know, after her parent’s death. But guess what? These novellas aren’t about that. I didn’t enjoyed all the novellas completely, but I did enjoyed some parts of them and that’s what matters.
If I’m sure about one thing is that I hate Arobynn Hamel. That guy is a monster just like the King of Adarlan. I hate how he treated Celaena and Sam. He thinks he owns every damn person around him, that he’s superior than anyone, that he’s a damn god. I couldn’t stand that he did those horrible things because he doesn’t like to share he’s belongings. You know what asshole, Celaena doesn’t belong to you.
“Life isn’t easy, no matter where you are. You’ll make choices you think are right, and then suffer for them.”
I love Celaena. Even though she’s really arrogant at times, I still love her. She has all the right to be like that because yeah, she’s the world’s greatest assassin. I love how much she likes to buy expensive clothes, jewelry, shoes and books. I hated when she was a bitch to Sam, because Sam is bae. Chaol and Dorian are nothing compared to Sam. He was an assassin but he was so lovely, nice, honest and he loved Celaena with his entire soul. Their relationship was so beautiful and full of true love.
“If you can endure pain, you can survive anything. Some people learn to embrace it – to love it. Some endure it through drowning it in sorrow, or by making themselves forget. Others turn it into anger.”
I knew what was going to happen to Sam Cortland, but it still hurt so much because I fell in love with him since he started to show his love for Celaena. Well, of course I was going to fell in love with Sam… it was obvious! From now on Celaena’s going to blame herself for anything that happen to the people she loves. She’s going to suffer every damn day and if you’ve read Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows, you know that what I’m saying is true.
“My name is Celaena Sardothien” she whispered. “And I will not be afraid.”
