This review is from: The Assassin and the Desert (Throne of Glass) (Kindle Edition)
This is an enjoyable read. Slightly longer then the first e-book The Assassin and the Pirate Lord: A Throne of Glass Novella, it is about 200 pages still not the 443 advertised. It takes place a right after the first e-book. Excluding the usual traveling time. Following Celaena's decision to follow her heart (morals), her master has sent her to train with the Silent Assassins in the desert in the height of summer. We do not know what became of Sam yet and this is the thing that torchers Calaena more than anything else. Celaena has a month to (three months including travel time) to find the Silent Assassins, joint them gain the Silent Masters trust and gain a letter from the Silent Master about her obedience. Life with the silent assassins is very different to what Celaena is used to from her own master and guild. they seem to be more friends than competitors, including Ansel, a beautiful red haired female assassin. Ansel is a few years older than Celaena, she is even more reckless (or is it cunning), popular and competitive. Could Celaena have found a kindred spirit or a rival. There is also an interesting side tracked story about the merchant and the Spider-silk I look forward to see how that one plays on. Overall another interesting short read that adds to the Throne of Glass-verse.
