The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I actually really enjoyed this high fantasy novel.
It is a collection of short stories about Calaena, the main character in the Throne of Glass series.
I haven't read any of the other of the Throne Of Glass books, but figured this would be a good way to start off.
This review will be short, so I apologize in advance. I am still getting used to writing reviews about short stories.
I liked the action in this book. It really made it fun. The romance worked well, and it was beautifully written.
I am going to use this review to mainly fangirl about Sam. I thought he was a jerk at first. Am I the only one to think that? As Caleana grows to love Sam, so do I. He is caring and willing to do anything for her. I will cut this review short for those of you who haven't read this book yet, but I will continue this review with spoilers.
(view spoiler)[I CAN'T BELIEVE SAM DIED. It was so sad, I was very close to tears. I kept hoping that Sam was just under a deep sleep. It was sad to find out he was not.
I did not like the end of this book either. I hoped Calaena would either stay in the town she lived in at the beginning of the book, or in the kingdom of the silent assassin. (hide spoiler)]
Overall, this was a good fantasy book, and I can't wait to get more into the series.
