A rave review form one of our regular contributors:
Beautiful, deadly, with a heart of ice. Celaena Sardothien is the assassin. Her name was enough to strike fear into grown men's hearts, Mothers were afraid to leave their children out after dark. Celaena was the best of her kind quick, beautiful and deadly until she made the fatal mistake of getting caught. Sent to rot in the disgusting salt mines, Celaena wakes every day wondering if it’s her last. Till the prince of the kingdom that killed her family comes and sets her free. On one condition she will fight to death against the best and most deadly assassins and thieves if she ever wants to be free and not return to the salt mine. But things start to go wrong when her competitors start dying in suspicious circumstances. Celaena must stop the evil magic that threatens the castle or become the next victim of the beast. Amazing book. Awesome detail, unforgettable characters, this is a book that keeps you guessing till the very last page. A bit like The Hunger Games, but set in the dark ages. I highly recommend this book to 15-18 year olds. A book that will leave you thinking about it for days. - Sara, Age 15, Guest Teen Reviewer
