Finally I am getting around to reading the adventures of my dear Celaena Sardothien. LOWKEY, I kind of love the assassin more than the queen, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t love the queen.
I wanted to read it before I read Empire of Storms BUT I kind of got distracted with other books that were coming out around the same time. I am not a huge fan of novellas, but I do know that some of the characters introduced in the last book were first introduced in some of these novellas in The Assassin’s Blade. And because I love Sarah J. Maas’s story telling and her writing, I am going to go ahead and read these beauties.
So, with that said, I am going to read and rate these so I can finally be completely caught up on The Throne of Glass Series: Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, Queen of Shadows, Empire of Storms, and Tower of Dawn.
The Assassin and the Empire (Throne of Glass, #0.5)
Heart is ripped out and barely beating on the table in front of me.
This is absolutely horrible. Maas just wanted to make us sob for days.
Like I feel as if Aelin/Celaena should have brought down more hell than she did in the series. She is the fire-breathing QUEEN. Arobynn deserved what he got (in the books, not in the novellas which would just be a lot of money basically) and like a thousand times more.
You don’t like sharing your things? Well Aelin should have showed you just how much of “your thing” she is. For the life of me.
On the other side of things, this is me every time I see Lysandra
Like she’s pretty awful in these novellas but I still kind of love her.
I just can’t bring myself to talk about this one. I’m sorry but really I’m not because if you can talk about what happened in this book you don’t have a beating heart.
